Randy Riggins, a 5-foot-8, 170-pound black man, was last seen wearing a white and gray button down shirt with a white T-shirt underneath and blue jeans. He has short-cropped hair, tattoos on his neck and a row of scars on his forehead, Normand said.
Riggins was in a sentencing hearing on a burglary charge when he ran from the courtroom, Norman reported.
