LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) — Officials say multiple agencies are searching for a dangerous man after a barricade situation in Limestone County on Tuesday afternoon.
Law enforcement officials said they are searching for Tony Wesley Brown. He is described as a 47-year-old white man, he is 6′ 3″ and weighs about 180 pounds.
According to the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office, investigators with the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office had gotten felony warrants for Brown after a domestic violence stalking case investigation.
Brown is wanted on two counts of stalking first-degree domestic violence and two counts of violation of a protection from abuse order and third-degree domestic violence.
Officials said Brown also made threats toward law enforcement and family members so investigators asked for the help of the U.S. Marshals.
The Madison County Sheriff’s Office said they received a request for assistance after the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office received a tip that Brown was at a home on Holt Road.
A perimeter was set up around the home and when law enforcement went inside they found that Brown had escaped before they made it inside, according to the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office.
Officials said Brown is considered extremely dangerous. They ask that if you see him, do not approach him but immediately call the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office at 256-232-0111.
