WANTED: US Marshals tracking Sean Perry of Detroit for multi-state crime spree

- Do you know a man by the name of Sean Perry? The Detroit man is the focus of a man hunt by US Marshalls Service for a multi-state crime spree.

Investigators say there are no signs that 29-year-old Sean Perry is slowing down from his violent, very dangerous crime wave.

"Perry's involved in a multi-state ID theft ring," said Deputy Justin Efthemiou, US Marshals. "And also they're taking those IDs and they're obtaining credit cards fraudulently (and) using those credit cards to go on a multi-state shopping spree buying tech items such as iPods, iPhones, iPads taking those items back to Michigan selling them for cash and then moving on to the next target."

Perry is wanted on a long list of charges including; armed robbery. He held up a man with a gun outside Greek Town Casino in Detroit.  And Marshals say he's been busy in several states with drug distribution, felony firearms and felony credit card fraud.

Investigators believe Perry takes a quick cell phone picture of your credit card as he stands behind you in the checkout line.

"A recent case in 2015 Perry stole the ID of a disabled person in Oakland County (and) used this ID to fraudulently purchase several firearms," Efthemiou. "And then the ATF is looking for him for now several warrants for felony firearms and fraudulent ID to purchase those firearms."

Sean Perry is 6 feet tall, 175 pounds.  He frequents casinos and strip clubs and will most likely be driving a rental car.

Perry has multiple identifications and aliases he's using. And he changes hair styles and disguises. He has a violent assaultive history with both law enforcement and the public.

"Perry has a lot of different contacts in Michigan so right now we're focusing our efforts here but also he's been known to frequent Florida, Delaware, Tennessee and North Carolina," Efthemiou.

If you have seen Perry or have information about him, call the US Marshals Service at (313) 234-5600 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
