U.S. Marshals Hunt for Murder Suspect on a Multi-State Crime Spree

Reward of up to $10,000 being offered for information directly leading to arrest
 
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Members of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in Montgomery, Alabama, and Pensacola, Florida, are currently attempting to locate and apprehend Raymond Pruitt, a fugitive wanted in several jurisdictions in Alabama and Florida for armed robbery, attempted murder, and murder.

Pruitt’s crime spree began on April 5 in Montgomery when he stabbed his girlfriend and shot her with her own pistol as she tried to escape. Pruitt has since been identified as the prime suspect in five armed robberies occurring in Montgomery, Ozark, Troy, and Prattville, Alabama. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office in Pensacola, Florida, also identified Pruitt as the subject who committed an armed robbery on April 26 in Pensacola where he allegedly shot and killed a store clerk. Pruitt was last seen driving a late model small, silver Hyundai sport utility vehicle with Alabama license plate number 3AT3440.

Raymond Pruitt is 5-foot-3 weighing approximately 170 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. The U.S. Marshals are offering a reward up to $10,000 and Central Alabama Crime Stoppers are providing $1,000 for information directly leading to his arrest.

If you have any information regarding the location of Pruitt or information that may help law enforcement with his apprehension, please call the U.S. Marshals at 1-800-336-0102, or email usms.wanted@usdoj.gov.
