LOVELAND, Colo. -- A wanted man who was handcuffed and put in a patrol car managed to escape while deputies were arresting someone else.

The Larimer County Sheriff's Office said deputies arrested William Robert Morgan, 37, in Loveland Wednesday afternoon on an outstanding warrant.

"Morgan was handcuffed and placed into a patrol vehicle," officials said.

After Morgan was arrested, deputies said they made contact with Harmony Fawn Schoenfelder, 35, who also had an outstanding warrant.

"While Schoenfelder was being arrested, a deputy returned to the patrol vehicle to check the status of Morgan. It was discovered that Morgan had escaped from the vehicle," the sheriff's office said.

Deputies, along with Loveland Police and a K-9, searched for Morgan, but he escaped.

Morgan is described as a white man who is 6’2” tall and weighs abut 230 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. His right arm is heavily tattooed.

Deputies released a photo of Morgan, but they said since that mug shot was taken, Morgan’s hair is fuller and a couple of inches longer.

If you see Morgan, call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 970-221-6868.

The Larimer County Sheriff's Office said it in investigating how Morgan escaped the police car.
