Jordon Earl Linde

     A man has escaped from the Park County Detention Center and is considered armed and dangerous, the Park County Sheriff’s Office announced Monday morning. 
    Park County inmate Jordon Earl Linde overpowered a Park County Detention officer, taking his sidearm and vehicle keys to a Park County Detention minivan, which has since been found abandoned, the Sheriff’s Office said in a press release. 
    News of the escape was announced in a 4:09 a.m. notification from Nixle, the Park County emergency alert system.
    Linde was last seen around mile marker 11 on U.S. Highway North. He is last known to be wearing black and white striped inmate clothing.
    He is believed to have switched cars to a gold 2000 Chrysler Town and Country minivan with Montana plate 49-6627D. Law enforcement considers him to be armed and dangerous.
    Linde was being held on charges of felony criminal possession of dangerous drugs with intent to distribute, two counts of felony criminal possession of dangerous drugs, misdemeanor criminal possession of drug paraphernalia, and a misdemeanor Justice Court warrant for failure to appear.
    The Sheriff’s Office asks citizens that if they see Linde, to call the Sheriff’s Office at (406) 222-2050, or call 911. Do not approach or try to apprehend Linde, the office said.
