"We want people to know Bagley is a fugitive and harboring a fugitive is a serious crime," said Maj. Tommy Bibb, of the Marion County Sheriff's Office. "If you've helped Bagley in the last 72 hours, you need to call 911."
Deputies described Bagley as a black man who has black hair, brown eyes and a distinctive tattoo on his upper right arm of the words "love always" over the image of a headstone.
Detectives consider Bagley to be armed and dangerous because of Bagley's criminal history and interaction with law enforcement. Deputies said an intense search is going on right now.
