Tallahassee, FL -- July 28, 2011 -- 6:45 p.m.

TPD and LCSO were trying to make an arrest for Gadsden County S.O. on a tip that 23-year-old Tovorious Claridy was in Leon County. Claridy is wanted in Gadsden County for aggravated battery.

The agencies got a tip that Claridy was at the Harvey's/Advanced Discount Auto Parts at the corner of Capital Circle Northwest and Tennessee Street. A perimeter was set up from Capital Circle Northwest and Tennessee Street to Capital Circle and Tennessee Capital Boulevard. A helicopter was sent up to circle the area and search from the air.

After a thorough search of the area including searching cars leaving the shopping plaza, Claridy was not found and is still at large. The perimeter search is now over and the helicopter has been grounded.

Residents are asked to be on the lookout for a black man with a beard. He was last seen wearing a white shirt and gray pants.
