SPOKANE, Wash. - Local law enforcement is asking the public for help locating an escaped felon, who is considered to be armed and dangerous, and back in the Spokane area.  Authorities are looking for 20-year-old Anthony E. Burke Also known as Anthony Garver.

Burke was released from federal prison on July 2nd. He disappeared traveling via Greyhound from Victorville Federal Correctional Institution in California to Spokane. 

Burke was supposed to report to Geiger Work Release at on Friday, July 3rd but never showed up. 

The US Marshals Service has obtained an escape warrant for Burke.  Burke was charged in 2006 with Possession of Ammunition, after having been committed to a mental institution.  Burke was under investigation at the time by the Inland Northwest Joint Terrorism Task Force,  for threats to blow up public buildings and cause mass casualties at public events.  Burke plead guilty to the Federal charge and was subsequently sentenced to three years incarceration, followed by three years of supervised release. 

Burke has been involved in threats to public officials and witnesses involved in his trial.  On Saturday July 4th, Burke was seen in the area of Forker and Morrison roads, in Spokane County. 

Burke has a history of mental disorders, and has been violent in the past, and is considered an extreme risk to re-offend.  Anyone who sees Garver should avoid contact and call 911 immediately.
