Boulder County Sheriff's Office is looking for Cody Coon who escaped custody

Boulder County Sheriff's Office is looking for fugitive Cody Coon, who escaped custody Tuesday afternoon.

Around 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Coon arrived at the Boulder County Jail Courtroom, located at 3200 Airport Road — which is located outside the secured perimeter of the jail. 

During his appearance, the judge remanded him into the sheriff's office custody, according to a news release from the Boulder County Sheriff's Office. 

Coon exited the courtroom and ran out the jail's front entrance, according to the news release. 

Deputies pursued Coon for a short distance but were unable to apprehend him, the news release stated. The Boulder Police Department aided in the search efforts by establishing a perimeter.

A witness in the area described seeing a man fitting Coon's description fleeing the area on a bicycle, according to the news release. An hour later, Coon was believed to be seen near Canyon Boulevard and 14 Street on a bicycle. 

Although officers responded to the call, they were unable to locate Coon, the news release stated.

Coon is still at large and is believed to be in the Boulder area. He has several active felony arrest warrants including Resisting Arrest, Second Degree Assault on a Peace Officer, Retaliation Against a Witness/Victim and Eluding Police, the news release stated.

If anyone has information about Cody’s whereabouts, they are asked to call the Boulder County Sheriff's Office Communication Center at 303-441-4444.  Police officials also ask the public not to attempt to contact with Cody and call law enforcement.  There is no current risk to the general public.
