MARYVILLE (WATE) – The Blount County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help finding a man wanted on a number of charges.

Dylan Porter Tarbett, 25, is wanted for resisting arrest, criminal impersonation, felony possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He also has an additional warrant on a prior assault charge.

A deputy was called to Windy Lakes Apartments on Wheeler Road around 1 p.m. for what the sheriff’s office says was a “breach of trust on a vehicle.” Tarbett was standing outside the vehicle, and when the deputy asked his name, he gave a false name. He pushed the deputy as the deputy tried to pat Tarbett down and ran off.

Deputies and K-9s tracked him across the Little River to an island, but the track ended in thick foliage.

Anyone with information on Tarbett’s whereabouts is asked to call Blount County Communications at (865) 983-3620.
