Scott, 30, was finishing his sentence, which stemmed from a 2014 armed robbery conviction.

"He does know about this warrant. I don’t believe he had that much time left," the marshal said. "At this point, he’s making matters worse."

U.S. Marshals discourage anyone from aiding Scott.

"Given his criminal history, what he’s been sentenced on, we still consider him armed and dangerous," the marshal said. "By hiding him you can be charged with aiding and abetting a fugitive."
