The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force is looking for information on Charles Farris III, the task force’s latest fugitive of the week.
Farris is wanted for charges including robbery, failure to register as a sex offender and parole violation, according to a press release from the task force. He is wanted by the U.S. Marshals and the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Elyria Police Department and the Ohio Adult Parole Authority.
Allegedly, Farris robbed a Speedway in Elyria last November. The incident took place early in the morning, around 3 a.m. on Nov. 10. Farris reportedly ordered a store clerk inside, and said he had a gun. Once inside, he told another clerk to give him money from the cash registers. Farris left with $374.
Farris, 48, is about 5’8” and 190 pounds. He’s thought to be hiding somewhere in Cleveland, likely on the west side of the city, and he used to live near the 30 block of High Street in Elyria.
If you have any information on Farris, call the task force at 1-866-4WANTED, or text a tip to 847411 (tip411), keyword WANTED. Tips can stay anonymous, and there is the possibility of a reward.
Just last week, an anonymous tip helped the task force capture a man wanted for rape and kidnapping.
