RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) –    Hopewell police are on the hunt for Mitchell Lee Amos for a series of crimes in King George County.

"Felony hit and run, D.W.I., Identity Theft, leaving the scene of an accident," said Lieutenant Roger Dean of the Hopewell Police Department.

Amos was convicted on drug charges and served his time.  He is currently in violation of his parole and police think he may still be in the Hopewell area.

"We believe he is still in the area, he does have family and friends here," Lieutenant Dean said.

The last known address for Amos is in Hopewell on the 200 block of Woodbine Street.  Police say he may frequent the nearby Riverside Apartment Complex.

"He's committed crimes numerous times in the past and we know he'll continue to do that as long as he's living here and staying here in Hopewell," Dean said. "So, to get him off the street would probably solve a lot of crimes that we don't even know about right now."

Police say he is most recognizable by his stature.

"He is only 5 foot 2, 140 pounds -- so he's kind of a small fellow," Dean said.

As far as police know, Amos is not employed and may have fallen back into old habits.

"He was convicted of drugs a while ago so he is a convicted felon, he may be doing his business that way," Dean said.

Investigators hope someone can offer information on the whereabouts of Mitchell Amos.

"Exact location in always helpful, maybe a car that he's in, they could give us a license plate number.  Something we could act on as far as the patrol," Dean said.

Authorities are looking for other fugitives, like 60-year-old Wallace Harris. Harris is wanted by the Virginia Department of Corrections for parole violation. Authorities say the original charges included homicide and robbery.

Harris is known to go by several different names, including John L. Carpenter. His last known address was Winston Street in Richmond.

Authorities are also looking for Anthony Trisvan, 41. He's wanted by Virginia State Police for failing to register as a violent sex offender.  He's also wanted by Petersburg police for failure to appear on child neglect charges.

Trisvan has three previous convictions for failing to register and has not been seen for over a year.

Lastly, authorities are also looking for Montana Best, 27. He's wanted by Hanover County authorities for robbery, abduction, and use of a firearm, as well as a probation violation in North Carolina.
