The FBI is looking for two men who apparently escaped a Kansas City-area jail.
Officials say Trevor Sparks and Sergio Perez Martinez escaped the Cass County jail on Monday, and authorities didn’t realize this until Tuesday morning. A third suspect, Steven Williams Sr., is accused of helping them escape.
Sparks was convicted last month for leading a conspiracy linked to two murders and various assaults, all tied to methamphetamine distribution in Kansas City, St. Louis, Springfield and St. Joseph. Martinez pleaded guilty to meth distribution and money laundering in July.
Authorities say they don’t know whether they are traveling together, but they are considered armed and dangerous.
