    LAS VEGAS – The U.S. Marshals Service announced a $5,000 reward as it began assisting the Nevada Department of Corrections and law enforcement agencies in locating and arresting Nevada escapee Porfirio Duarte-Herrera.

    A 38-year-old Arkansas man has admitted that about 100 pounds of dynamite and ignition material found with him at a hotel in suburban Las Vegas was stolen from a mining district in northern Nevada. Court records and his attorney said Friday that Evan Ray Atkinson entered a written guilty plea July 7 in U.S. District Court in Reno to theft of explosives from a federal permit-holder. He faces a year and a day in federal prison at sentencing Sept. 28. The plea deal avoided trial on multiple charges. Defense attorney Richard Schonfeld says his client accepted responsibility and wanted closure to the case. Nothing in the court record said what Atkinson allegedly planned to do with the explosives.

    Asman is 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighs 195 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes. He is believed to be driving a white 2005 Chevrolet pickup with Utah license plate T287M.

    “The operation’s focus was to identify and arrest individuals targeting minor children over the internet for purposes of sexual abuse.” Rupert Police Department Sgt. Sam Kuoha said.
