A BOLO, or “Be On the LookOut” alert received by law enforcement Saturday morning described Griffin as a Black male, 5 ft. 4, 145 lbs, 42 years old, driving a black Chevy Malibu.

It was though he might be headed toward Meridian. But, that was not confirmed.

Griffin is considered armed and dangerous.
