36-year-old Leonardo Lopez escaped from the Watonwan County jail in St. Peter Monday night, and is still on the loose.

Court records show that Lopez was charged in November 2022 with failing to update his address on the state’s sex offender registry. He also allegedly ran from St. James police on August 8th when an officer tried to arrest him on an outstanding warrant.
