The Marshall Police Department is searching for a man wanted on several felony warrants.

According to police, Joe Michael Allen, 25, of Marshall, is wanted on felony warrants from several different jurisdictions, including Dallas and Marshall. He is considered armed and dangerous. The case is being investigated by the U.S. Marshal's Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force, the department says.

According to Harrison County Judicial records, Allen has been arrested numerous times, on charges varying from drug possession to DWI to theft of a firearm. The firearm charge was in 2015. 

According to Marshall police, there is a warrant for Allen for probation violation on a previous drug and weapons conviction. He is a suspect in other felony cases, as well, they said. It is unknown what he is wanted for in Dallas. 

Chief Jesus “Eddie” Campa stated, “This is one of those cases where we are depending on the citizens of Marshall and surrounding communities to help us get a dangerous person off the streets. The quicker Mr. Allen is taken into custody, the safer Texas residents will be.”

Anyone with information on Allen’s location is urged to contact the Marshall Police Department at 903-935-4575. Those wishing to remain anonymous are encouraged to call Marshall-Harrison County Crime Stoppers at 903-935-9969.
