A Grand Forks man escaped from custody in Crookston and is being sought by law enforcement, according to Greg Widseth, Polk County attorney.

A warrant was issued today for Timothy John Tice, 48, after he failed to return to the Northwest Regional Corrections Center in Crookston from a two-day furlough last week to attend his sister's funeral.

He was due back in jail at 10 a.m. Friday, where he is serving time for assault and terroristic threats conviction in February.

A Crookston police officer could not reach Tice at the telephone number he listed when he left the jail nor at his wife's telephone number.

Tice was charged today with escape from custody, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Anyone with information about Tice should call the Crookston Police Department at (218) 281-3111, Widseth said in a news release.
