Subject: Violent Fugitive May Be Traveling in California



This advisory was issued this evening in multiple media markets throughout California and in Mexico based on information indicating the subject described below is heading south from where he was last seen in northern California (San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland).

He also is known as Aimee MacIntire, Kevin Bacon, Kevin Briggs, Kevin A. Briggs, Timothy McCoy, James Meismer, James Zenon Meismer.



The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the location and arrest of Kevin Anthony Briggs who is wanted for state charges of aggravated assault, attempted sexual intercourse without consent, assault on a police officer and escape. Briggs is wanted on federal charges of Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution (UFAP).



Authorities believe Briggs purchased a one-way bus ticket to Spokane, Washington, on February 1, 2014, from Missoula, Montana. Information developed during the investigation suggests he traveled to the Bay area and may be heading south to Mexico.
