Earlier today with the assistance from our local media partners, the Sheriff’s Office received numerous tips from the public that has led Detectives to the identity of the male subject captured on video as he stole a package from the front porch of a residence in Easley.

An Arrest Warrant has been issued this afternoon by a Pickens County Magistrate for Anthony Ray Tuggle (39 yoa) for the charge of Simple Larceny – Enhancement (Enhanced for prior convictions for theft related incidents).

Mr. Tuggle is currently out on bond following a previous arrest in Pickens County in June of this year for the charge of Burglary 2nd Degree.

Sheriff Clark stated…

“The quick response from members of our community in coming forward with helpful information speaks to the positive changes that are occurring daily in our neighborhoods in Pickens County.  

Residents have pulled together to work with law enforcement to rid our county of those that refuse to respect others and continue to steal from the hard working person that is trying to provide for his or her own family. We cannot thank the public enough for their support and their continued trust to work with us in our goal to not allow Pickens County to become as crime ridden as other areas within our state”.

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Anthony Ray Tuggle is asked to call the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office at (864) 898-5500 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC.

A copy of the Arrest Warrant and a recent photo of Mr. Tuggle is attached to this release.
