KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)

The FBI office in Kansas City has released wanted posters with full descriptions of the two inmates who escaped from the Cass County Jail on Monday.

Trevor Sparks and Sergio Perez Martinez escaped from the jail near Kansas City on Monday night. Police didn't realize they were missing until early Tuesday morning, according to a Thursday press release.

The U.S. Marshals are offering a $5,000 reward, for each individual, for tips that lead to their capture.

The FBI doesn't know if the men are together but they are considered armed and dangerous.

A third individual, 64-year-old Steven Lydell Williams Sr., was charged Wednesday with helping the escape.

Sparks, 33, was convicted Nov. 7 by a federal trial jury for leading a criminal conspiracy linked to two murders and multiple violent assaults, and which distributed at least a kilogram of methamphetamine every day for nearly a year in the Kansas City, Springfield, St. Joseph and St. Louis areas.

He was found guilty of one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, one count of participating in a money-laundering conspiracy, one count of possessing firearms in relation to a drug-trafficking crime, and one count of being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.

Martinez, 43, pleaded guilty on July 11 in federal court to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering
