Felon Eludes Manhunt in Springfield

thumb_60c2270606a591dSPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A six-time felon is still on the run after he evaded a Springfield manhunt today.

Two schools in Springfield were on lockdown while police officers searched the area for a man wanted for a felon in possession of a firearm.

The manhunt ended around 2 p.m. after police determined he had escaped their perimeter.

The suspect is identified as 41-year-old Gary Orrick who evaded the authorities and is still on the loose.

He was charged in July by the U.S. Attorney’s Office and a couple days later Springfield police officers found him in possession of a .22 caliber revolver during a traffic stop.

Authorities describe Orrick as white male, 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds, with short hair. He was wearing a sleeveless yellow/orange shirt, long shorts, and has tattoos on his legs and arms.

If you see a man who matches this description, you are urged to not contact him but call 911 immediately.
