TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, Ala. (WBRC) - The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office says they are searching for a man who ran from deputies during a warrant check on Monday.

Investigators say Chavez faces a felony, non-violent charge. Authorities declined for now to get into specifics on the charge.

“He is a wanted individual and that’s always important and he ran from us, so any time you have someone like that on the loose is concerning for people in the area. You always want people to lock their doors and keep an eye on your property. Yesterday, he took off and we had k-9 on the scene and other assets from the sheriff’s office,” said Sgt. Josh Hastings of the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Department.

Reese Chavez was last seen wearing red gym shorts, a black shirt, and glasses. Chavez is 5′8″, 180 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

Police are focusing their search near Atlanta Lane and Bone Camp Road off Highway 171.

If you have any information regarding Chavez’s location, contact the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office at 205-752-0616.
