Police in Buffalo are looking for a parole absconder who may again be committing robberies with his crew, according to authorities.

Dequann Thomas, aka “Pooh Bear,” was convicted of armed robbery and paroled to his mother’s home on Roosevelt Avenue. In his past conviction, the 19-year-old worked with three accomplices in the Rounds Avenue area and held his victims at gunpoint.

Thomas has a girlfriend named Sabrina who lives on Millicent Avenue and could also be in the area around Courtland Avenue.

Thomas, who is described as black, 5’7” tall and 160 pounds, should be considered armed and dangerous. He has three tattoos on his face.

There is a reward of up to $1,000 leading to his arrest. Call 716-867-6161 with your tips, which will be kept anonymous.
