Just last week, authorities were busy with another manhunt....a trend trooper ray says is not normal for the panhandle area.

"We've not had this much activity in quite a while, so there is something going on whether crimes on the increase or decrease or we're getting better at apprehending them I don't know but you are correct, it is on the increase," says Ray. 

Perez may be operating a black 2003 Mitsubishi eclipse with Oklahoma tags. if he is encountered, the public is asked to proceed with caution.

"We really want the public to look for this guy," says Ray. A lot of times, they are our best allies so that's why we're asking for them you know take a look at the photograph if you recognize him, if you know where he is, anything like that be sure that you call local law enforcement or 911 and let's see if we can't get him apprehended.
