SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Law enforcement authorities are searching for a man with at least six felony convictions after he fled from a sheriff’s deputy.

The Greene County Sheriff’s Department says the search started Thursday when 41-year-old Gary Orrick fled after a sheriff’s deputy approached him in southwest Springfield.

In July, federal authorities charged Orrick with being a felon in possession of a firearm after Springfield police found him with a .22-caliber revolver.

Orrick has at least six felony convictions, five in Missouri. The two most recent felony convictions were in 2007, one in Greene County for endangering the welfare of a child and a federal count for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Orrick is white, 5-foot-9, and 160 pounds, with short hair. His legs and arms are covered with tattoos.
