New charges have emerged against a Tennessee man who was recently released from the Missoula County Jail, and authorities are asking for the public's help in locating him.

Sheriff's Department Spokeswoman Brenda Bassett said Grant Dalton was released from jail on Sunday, September 6.

"After he was released, we received new charges against him out of Tennessee," Bassett said. "There are warrants issued from Tennessee, but they weren't able to enter them into their system in time to get them to us. We do know that he's wanted for severely beating an elderly person, along with warrants for theft and assault totally about $54,000."

Bassett said Dalton is driving a silver 2006 Subaru Outback with Tennessee license plates.

Anyone with information as to Grant Dalton's whereabouts is asked to contact the Missoula County Sheriff's Office at 258-4810.
