Scott County Deputies are asking for your help finding a car thief they think may be dangerous.

Sheriff Tony Hampton says William Ray McKee has escaped from jail in Louisville on June 12th and has stolen 4 cars since...including one in Georgetown.

Hampton says McKee isn't your average car thief and the public needs to know about the danger he may bring with him.

"He's made statements to a person... to a very reliable person that I talked to...that he would not go alive. And if he encountered law enforcement...he would pretend to have a gun and make officers shoot him," says Hampton.

The Sheriff says McKee was originally in jail for burglary and theft from 2010.
