MOST WANTED: Cornelius Core

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

He's one of the area's most wanted suspects, and recovery agents with A1A Bail Bonding Company need your help finding him.

He's 30-year-old Cornelius Core and he's wanted for violating the Georgia Control Substance Act.

"He's from the Columbus area and on the streets he's known as 'man," said Kenneth Blount. "That's what most people on the street know him as. If you call him by his legal name most people would not know him. They know him as 'man."

Blount with A1A Bail Bonding in Columbus said Core is not considered dangerous. He said Core has been on the run since July and said he believes he is still in the area.

"Nine times out of ten most wanted suspects stay close to home," he said. "They will stay within a five mile radius of their family or friends. They will move from one house to another one. We may miss them at this house this week and they'll go stay with someone else."

Core is 5'7" tall and weighs 140 pounds. If you know anything about the whereabouts of Cornelius Core you are asked to call (706) 322-6665.

There is a cash reward being offered for information that will lead to an arrest.
