Inmate escapes from Pend Oreille County Jail

NEWPORT — Blood in the snow showed an inmate cut himself on razor wire climbing a fence to escape from the Pend Oreille County Jail in Newport in northeast Washington.

KREM-TV reported that Pend Oreille and Bonner County, Idaho, deputies and Border Patrol units with tracking dogs followed the trail for several miles Wednesday before it was lost.

The inmate, Ryan A. Apling, 29, was being held for failure to appear on original charges of trespass and driving while license suspended.

Apling is described as 5-foot-10, 140 pounds, with blue eyes and short blonde hair. He is believed to have changed out of his orange jail uniform into blue jeans and a black hoodie.
