Muscogee County Sheriff John Darr took to Facebook Wednesday morning to ask that everyone be on the lookout for wanted sex offender Jimmy Ray Dozier Jr.

The 32-year-old suspect was issued multiple warrants through the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office and Columbus Police Department, including failure to register as a sex offender, violation of probation, aggravated assault and simple battery.

Darr said Dozier is a black man around 5 foot 7 inches tall and approximately 150 pounds.

"Do not, under any circumstances, attempt to apprehend this individual," he advised the public. "Call law enforcement immediately upon sight."

Anyone with information about Dozier is encouraged to call deputies at 706-653-4225, send them an email at muscosheriff@columbusga.org, submit an anonymous tip through the agency's app or send Darr a Facebook message.
