A tribal resident suspected in a homicide escaped from the Colorado River Indian Tribes Detention Facility Sunday morning, according to tribal and La Paz County Sheriff’s Police.
Mickey Anderson, who was being held in connection with a murder, should be considered mentally unstable and dangerous, authorities say.
Tribal police did not furnish details of the homicide or any information connecting Anderson to it.
Anderson and inmates Joshua Mike and Aaron Drennan physically assaulted a C.R.I.T. detention officer shortly after 1 a.m. and escaped from the C.R.I.T. Detention Facility, reports said. Within hours, the C.R.I.T. Police Department, with the assistance of the La Paz County Sheriff's Office, U.S. Border Patrol and the Lake Havasu City Police Department, was able to locate Joshua Mike and Aaron Drennan and return them into custody.
Mickey Anderson was last seen wearing orange inmate clothing; however, it is believed that he has since changed into other clothes. Anderson is a 25-year-old Native American with brown hair (shaved head) and brown eyes. He is 6 feet, 1 inch tall and weighs 155 pounds. He has a tattoo on his neck that reads "Mickey Jr", and another on his chest that reads, "mouse."
The La Paz County Task Force is offering a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the location and arrest of Mickey Anderson. Police cautioned the public not to make contact with Anderson if he is spotted, but rather to call "911" immediately.
