'Armed and dangerous' man mistakenly released from Toledo jail could be in Michigan

(WXYZ) - The FBI and Toledo police are searching for a suspect in an armed bank robbery who was mistakenly released from jail earlier this week.

According to the FBI, Don Woodson Ellis Jr. allegedly robbed a bank in Toledo on Monday and was arrested and held at the Lucas County Corrections Center. He was mistakenly released on Wednesday night around 10:30 p.m.

At the time, he was wearing a black t-shirt, light blue shorts/jeans to the knee and white tennis shoes with dark laces.

He was using the name Antwon Moore at the time of the departure from the jail. He is also considered armed and dangerous.

The Lucas County Sheriff's Office said Ellis "used deception" to be released back into the community.

According to the FBI, he could be in Michigan given his previous criminal record which includes pleading guilty to bank robbery and fleeing/eluding police in Monroe County.

Ellis is described as a black male, 28 years old, 6-feet tall weighing 150 pounds.
