A career criminal is off the streets and behind bars after several months on the run from law enforcement.
Ray Anthony Farmer, 56, was arrested early Tuesday in Louisa, KY - near the West Virginia border - after wrecking a van and a short foot chase with Lawrence County, KY, deputies.
Farmer has racked up more than 28 warrants from Cadiz, Guthrie, Clarksville and Nashville since he vanished from a halfway house in September 2012.
Among the crimes he is accused of committing include five burglaries in Trigg County and several burglaries in Clarksville.
Police say Farmer was an expert criminal who previously served time in jail.
"Ray Farmer's not new to the criminal market," said retired officer Jim Knoll of the Clarksville Police Department. "He's been in business at least twenty years. He just got out of a 5 1/2-year stint in prison, and it didn't take him long to get back to it."
Farmer also had a pattern. He usually hit places during weekends when they're unoccupied.
He is now lodged in the Big Sandy Correctional Complex in Johnson County, KY.
