An inmate from the Lorain County Jail has not returned after receiving medical treatment on Friday, and US Marshals are offering a reward for information on his whereabouts, according to Lorain County officials.

Lorain County Sheriff Lt. Mike Crum said Robert Beane III was released for medical furlough on July 6 and has not returned to the jail. He is considered to be on the run.

Beane was booked into the Lorain County Jail on June 29 for a slew of charges. The charges include kidnapping, aggravated robbery, felonious assault, having weapons under disability, theft and contempt of court. He entered a plea of not guilty in court on July 5, the day before his medical furlough.

Beane is a known member of the O.B.A. criminal street gang with an extensive history of criminal violence, according to the Lorain County Crime Scene Identification.
