There have been no sightings of a Montana State Prison inmate who escaped from the Deer Lodge facility in a prison work truck Tuesday morning.
There have been some leads related to the escape of Steven Dale Robb, 47, of Great Falls, but they have not turned up anything, public information officer Linda Moodry said Wednesday morning.
Robb was working on a ranch crew at the prison Tuesday morning when he escaped in a prison work truck. The emergency alarm sounded at 8:35 a.m. Tuesday, according to public information officer Linda Moodry.
Robb lived in the work reentry center on the prison property and was working outside of the fenced area Tuesday morning, Moodry said.
The truck is described as a prison flatbed truck, royal blue in color with Montana State Prison plate MSP 344. It was dusty and dirty at the time of Robb's escape.
Robb is described as 5 feet, 11 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds with brown hair and green eyes. He was sentenced in Cascade County in April 1998 for aggravated assault felony assault, burglary and criminal distribution of dangerous drugs.
He has several tattoos including a castle, clouds, a unicorn, pathway, tombstone and plant on his back; Tweety Bird with a caption bubble on his penis; a mask and bricks on his left calf; "God's Blessing," "Jeremy, Jonathan, Jared," cross and ribbon on this left forearm; roses on right calf; Tasmanian devil on right shoulder; faces, Christ, filler, jester on left upper arm; flowers, knife, heart and blood drops on upper right arm. He also has scars on his left arm, left knee and right arm.
Anyone who notices anything suspicious and believes it is related to this escaped prisoner is asked to call their local law enforcement, Moodry said.
