Jackson County Offers $6K Reward To Find Jail Escapee

The Jackson County sheriff’s office says a reward for help in finding a jail escapee has now climbed to $6,000.

The sheriff’s office said Tuesday it continues to investigate leads and canvas areas in and around that southern Oregon county.

Bradley Monical was awaiting trial in March for a 2010 bank robbery in Ashland. Investigators say he stood on another inmate’s shoulders on the night of Nov. 19, removed a piece of metal mesh from the roof covering, and jumped into a nearby tree.

The tree Monical jumped into has been cut down, along with several others nearby. The roof cover, atop a recreation area, is being replaced with a stronger material.
