Chicago's Most Wanted: Paris Poe

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Parole is one of the ways authorities monitor ex-convicts to make sure they are staying out of trouble once they are released from prison, but the FBI is now looking for a man who may have gotten into more trouble after getting out and now is nowhere to be found.

The FBI is looking for Paris Poe, a Chicago man who was initially convicted in Cook County for aggravated battery and robbery. After serving a portion of his sentence, he was released in June 2011 on parole for the remainder of his sentence.

Early in April, he violated the terms of his parole. The Illinois Department of Corrections issued a warrant for his arrest. Because information was developed that Poe had possibly traveled out of state to avoid capture, a federal warrant was obtained. He is now wanted by the FBI for Unlawful Flight to Avoid Confinement and Custody.

In addition to the parole violation, the FBI is interested in talking to Poe in connection with an ongoing federal murder investigation.

Poe's last known address was 5904 South Indiana Avenue in Chicago, but FBI agents say they have reason to believe he may have fled the state. So while they are concentrating the search efforts around Chicago at this point, they consider this a nation-wide search and are hopeful that Fox 32 viewers and web users will provide some help in the efforts to get a dangerous individual off the streets and back behind bars.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to Poe's arrest.

Here is a description of Paris Poe:

--Black male

--33 years old.

--6' 0''

--200 pounds

--Black hair, brown eyes.

--Goes by the nickname "Polerowski"

--Has several distinguishing tattoos: On his upper right arm he has the words "Chief Hobo." On his upper left arm he has "RIP Angie."

He is considered armed and dangerous, if you have information about him you care asked to call police.
