NEWBERRY, SC (FOX Carolina)-Investigators with the Newberry County Sheriff's Office say they have issued arrest warrants for Tracy Glenn Parsons, an armed home invasion suspect who is wanted for multiple charges out of Laurens County, Whitmire, Parole, Probation and Pardon Services.
The Newberry County Sheriff's Office says that it, in partnership with several other law enforcement agencies, is searching for Parsons, who authorities say was involved in a home invasion on Dennis Dairy Lane in Newberry on Monday.
Deputies say the suspect was involved in a confrontation at a house on Dennis Dairy Lane when he struck a male and female victim on the head with a semi-automatic pistol. Authorities say the suspect then tied up the both victims and stole their vehicle.
According to authorities, a South Carolina Department of Natural Resources officer spotted the vehicle on South Carolina Highway 34 west of Silverstreet, but authorities were unable to stop the car as the suspect drove into a pasture and fled into a wooded area.
The sheriff's office says agents with SLED and deputies pursued the suspect into the woods but lost the trail in a heavily wooded area adjacent to the Saluda River.
Deputies are continuing to work with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and say that Parsons should be considered armed and dangerous.
Parsons is described as a 5'5" male with salt and pepper hair wearing a camouflaged jacket with a black bandanna over his face.
According to the Newberry County Sheriff's Office, anyone living in the Silverstreet area near Green Acres and Moses Road should take precautions and lock all car doors and doors to their home.
Deputies are asking the public not to approach Parsons and to call 911 if he is located.
