A Pembina County Correctional Center inmate who escaped custody Friday, May 20, is still on the loose. Authorities are now stressing that anyone who has or may aid Glenn Troy Stegman could face criminal charges.

Pembina County Sheriff's Department chief deputy Jeff Osvold said Stegman, 34, is not considered a threat to the public but said that he wouldn't hesitate to steal a car. Stegman has a history of drug-related offenses.

Osvold said the department is receiving about a lead a day in regards to Stegman. The search was expanded the day after the escape to include Pembina and Walsh counties. An alert has been posted in the tri-state area, notifying other agencies about Stegman's escape.

Osvold said Stegman is likely receiving help from friends or family. Osvold said that he believes Stegman already received help in at least one instance since his escape. Osvold says anyone who has knowingly assisted Stegman could face criminal charges.

Stegman was previously living in Fargo, but was being held at the Pembina County Correctional Center for violations of his probation.

Stegman is described as a white male, 5'11", 210 pounds, hazel eyes, and red hair with a long braided pony tale.

Osvold said the public should remain vigilant and report any information regarding Stegman to the Pembina County Sheriff's Department by calling (701) 265-4122.
