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.

    Is he another product of the US welfare program that we are now having to spend money and resources on because his mom didn't want to raise him she just wanted a check?

    Its about time!!! I knew this a/hole day would come. Every city he moves to, him and his family disrupts the neighborhood. Always carrying a guns, makes videos on u-tube about how he runs from the cops and loves to try to beat up on guys but you better believe he will never attempt to do anything by himself. Just a big teeth a** coward!!! You do wrong you pay! Time is up. This idiot has younger siblings under 18 that he provide guns too whenever they get in any type of argument. I'm a true witness to all of this. He have a lot of innocent people in jail right now because they tried to defend themselves and he file charges first like he's the innocent one. Then he would have his gullible, naive girlfriends to testify for him. I hope the same people are reading this who tried to cover up all his dirt. This is the type of person they were protecting. He don't care anything about law enforcement or anybody. This has been going on in Gadsden County for several years and seems like somebody over in the prosecutor's office likes him. Why is it so hard to find him. His childs mother just advertise his baby birthday party in the newspaper, listed Tavorious name and location of party. Do you think anybody tried to check it out. He's always at the nightclubs in Gadsden County right across from the jail, how convenient but don't get caught. He's nothing but a coward who deserves everything thrown at him.

    Let's see yesterday you called him "Povorious Claridy". Today it's Tovorious or some other funky name. We don't know if he's dangerous. We don't know how tall he is, what he's wearing, what he drives, where he hangs out -- but we can call you if we see a black man - who happens to have a weird name but of course he doesn't have that tattooed on his forehead. Good luck - I mean old Claridy has good luck cuz nobody ain't gonna find this dude!

      So... Jeff comes here for the first time this morning, sees your post and sees the picture and makes a comment (not knowing the picture wasn't posted earlier - he wasn't here). Then you call him a jerk because he didn't know the picture wasn't there earlier. Really???? Who's the real jerk here?
