Over the course of the past two weeks, Blue Earth and Nicollet County Sheriff’s Offices, along with several State and local jurisdictions, have exhausted numerous resources attempting to apprehend fugitive, Jacob Friedrichs.
Jacob Friedrichs currently has active warrants in Blue Earth County and is a fugitive from the Minnesota Department of Corrections. We do not believe he is armed. However, his recent actions have increased the risk to public safety.
Jacob Friedrichs has avoided apprehension. We believe that local individuals have assisted him to avoid capture. Under Minnesota law, aiding an offender or obstructing an investigation is a crime. If it is determined that any individual has provided assistance to Friedrichs, that individual will be arrested and charged.
Due to the increased risk to public safety, we are now offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the apprehension of Jacob Friedrichs.
Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
We would like to extend our appreciation to the numerous law enforcement agencies and members of the public who have provided assistance to date.
