CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -State probation and parole agents are looking for 24 year old Freddie White.

White is wanted for a youthful offender parole violation stemming from convictions for unlawful possession of a sawed off shotgun and possession and distribution of crack cocaine.

"The mixture of his involvement in guns and drugs is a bad combination for the Charleston area," said Probation and Parole agent Mitchell Ray. "They're a felon, they are not allowed to be in possession of a firearm."

Ray said White has a long criminal record and hasn't seen his parole officer since 2008. "My biggest concern is him continuing being in the drug profession, selling drugs to members of the community and the possibility he may be out there with a weapon, and the possibility he may harm himself or a law enforcement officer."

Agents said White has ties to Clarendon County and Florida, and that his family may be helping him hide.

"If a family member is causing problems in the neighborhood, they should do the right thing and turn that person in," said Ray.

White stands 5'11" and weighs about 180 lbs. He has the word "gangsta" tattooed on his left arm.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111. You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
