BOONEVILLE – A Prentiss County man is wanted by law enforcement after evading multiple departments this weekend.

Anthony Ray Perry, 24, is wanted in Belmont for property crimes. When a Prentiss County Sheriff’s deputy attempted to stop him Friday evening, Perry started a pursuit, lost control of his vehicle and then fled on foot into the woods.

Multiple people reported confronting Perry in their homes after he broke in, but no one was hurt.

Saturday afternoon, a man reported a man approached his 1991 Black Chevy S10 truck on a bicycle, abandoned the bicycle and stole the truck. Authorities suspect Perry took the truck but can’t confirm that at this time.

Perry is described as 5 feet, 5 inches and about 120 pounds with short brown hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 773-8477.
