He is wanted by the U.S. Marshals, the Lorain County Sheriff's Office, the Elyria Police Department and the Ohio Adult Parole Authority for charges including robbery, failing to register as a sex offender, and violating his parole.

The robbery charges stem from an incident where Farris allegedly robbed the Speedway on Lorain Rd in Elyria about 3 a.m. Nov. 10.

Marshals say a store clerk was outside waiting for a newspaper delivery driver when Farris pushed the clerk toward the front door and told him to get inside, saying he had a gun.

Once inside the station, he ordered another clerk standing behind the bullet-resistant glass by the cash registers to hand over money.

The clerk gave him $374 and Farris left on foot.

Farris, 48,  stands approximately 5'08" tall and weighs 190 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

If you have any information in reference to Charles Farris III, please contact the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at 1-866-4WANTED or Text keyword WANTED and tip to 847411 (tip411)
