Local "Neo-Nazi" Parolee Missing
In 2000, Tommy Lee Bates of Muscle Shoals was arrested in Lauderdale County on charges of First Degree Armed Robbery. Covicted the next year, the now 37 year old felon was given a 20 year sentence.
In January of last year, Bates was paroled to a half-way house in Birmingham, but left the facility under a cloud a week ago. The Colbert native has numerous tattos, including White Power symbols and "Cracker Bolts." He's approximately 6'1" and weighs 200#.
If you spot Bates, call 911 or local police. (He's pictured above at his arrest; most recent photo is below.)
