(ABC 6 News) - Wisconsin authorities are warming residents in Minnesota to be on the lookout for Eric "Buck" Hall. Hall was released from prison on Tuesday, June 10th and, according to authorities, has been on a crime spree ever since.

Police say since his release, Hall is suspected of stealing money from a restaurant in River Falls, Wisconsin and then stealing a nearby SUV.

The Chippewa County Sheriff's office later attempted a traffic stop on the stolen vehicle. The driver crashed the SUV into the woods, ran away on foot and is still on the loose.
Law enforcement officials say Hall is also a felon in possesion of two guns and that he may be making his way to Saint Paul Park, Minnesota because he has a "connection" there.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Investigator Chris Kowalczyk at the Chippewa County Sheriff's Office at (715) 726-7714.
