Craig man arrested for allegedly aiding escape of CAPS detainee

A Craig man with an unusual history in the Moffat County court system was arrested this week for allegedly trying to help a person at the Correctional Alternative Placement Services facility escape. William Kurtis Baird, 21, was arrested at about 6:45 p.m. Wednesday and booked into Moffat County Jail on suspicion of aiding an escape, a Class 3 felony. About the same time, Christopher Lelland McAndrew, 23, of CAPS, was booked into Moffat County Jail on a flight-escape warrant issued by the Colorado Department of Corrections. CAPS officials began searching for McAndrew when he did not return to the facility on time, and found he was in Baird’s company, said Bill Leonard, Craig Police Department division commander.
