DENVER, Colorado (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The sheriff's department in Denver says a fellow deputy is behind bars Tuesday morning, accused of helping a criminal escape from jail.
Deputies say Matthew Andrews assisted the inmate by giving him a deputy's uniform.
24-year-old Felix Trujillo was being held in connection with an aggravated robbery and is now on the run.
“He's still at large. We do not have him in custody. We do consider this party to be dangerous; we ask the public to be vigilant," said Lt. Matt Murray of the Denver Police Department.
For now, Denver police say they are trying to figure out what motive Andrews might have had for helping Trujillo escape.
Andrews is a two-year veteran of the department.
