DECATUR CO., GA (WALB) - A multi-county search for a wanted man is now over after he turned himself in to authorities.

Georgia State Patrol and DNR officials have been searching for Ronnie Aaron Parrish since last week.

Parrish had a bench warrant in connection with burglary, entering auto and theft by receiving charges in Decatur County.

He turned himself in to Decatur County sheriff's on Thursday afternoon.

Parrish was considered dangerous after he made threats against law enforcement officers.

Troopers said they also arrested one man for driving on a suspended license who also had a warrant for his arrest, officials believe he was helping Parrish escape.
