Police seek help locating career criminal

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Officials are asking for help in locating career criminal Ray Anthony Farmer.

According to Clarksville Police, Farmer has amassed at least 28 warrants out of Clarksville/Montgomery County, Davidson County, Cadiz, Ky., and Guthrie, Ky., since walking away from a halfway house in September.

The majority of the warrants are felonies. The latest warrants in Montgomery County were for a burglary of a commercial business on the Tennessee/Kentucky line on Jan. 21.

Police say Farmer has caused tens of thousands of dollars of damage to buildings and alarm systems and taken thousands of dollars in cash and merchandise.

Law enforcement agencies in Kentucky and Tennessee have been working together to locate and capture Farmer, but he still remains at large.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the police.
