We have new information on the sighting of 3 fugitive siblings from Florida. Tonight the FBI confirms that they believe the so called "Dougherty Gang" is in Colorado
Ryan, Lee Grace and Dylan Dougherty are wanted by the FBI after police say they went on a crime spree which allegedly includes shooting AK-47's at a Florida police officer, and robbing a Georgia bank.
"We have credible info on individuals sighted in Colorado Springs area about 1:30 this afternoon near I-25 and woodmen." explained Dave Jolly with the FBI in Denver. We spoke with a store employee at the REI store near Woodmen and Academy this afternoon who didn't want to be identified. When we showed them a picture of the Dougherty's they told us they had seen them in the store earlier. We also spoke with the store manager who would not confirm anything. The FBI tells us the siblings were buying camping equipment.
Jolly tells us if you see the "Dougherty Gang", do not approach them. "These individuals are armed and dangerous and we believe they post a very imminent threat to the communities that we serve and law enforcement in general" he says.
The three were last seen driving a white Subaru Impreza with New York license plate FBE 5900. It's suspected they then changed it to a stolen Texas plate of LCS 909 and they may have switched them again. Investigators believe they could be headed to a campsite or rural area in Colorado. Again if you see the Dougherty siblings do not approach them, but call 9-1-1 immediately.
