Larry Harris Wiki – Larry Harris Biography
Larry Harris, of Willcox, is charged with following and making multiple attempts to pull the trucks off a highway early Monday, authorities said. He allegedly claimed to be a detective and ordered the unarmed guards to exit their vehicles at gunpoint, according to reports.
“They’re unarmed, they comply. They get out of the truck. This guy holds them at gunpoint and starts searching their truck,” Idalou Police Chief Eric Williams said, according to the Lubbock KCBD. “You know that he was asked whether or not he was behind the COVID-19 vaccine. As far as we know, he was thinking that someone had been abducted.”

Larry Harris is 66 years old.
Police said officers arrived and found Harris in possession of a loaded 1911 Colt.
Harris allegedly had another magazine loaded into his truck, the station reported. He told police that he thought the people in the vans had abducted a woman and a child, according to authorities.
All 11 guards were in uniform and none were injured, police said.
“I’m surprised this didn’t turn into a very bad situation because he was standing in the middle of these guards, with a loaded pistol,” Williams said. “Lots of ammunition to wreak a lot of havoc, and for whatever reason, he put the gun in the front of his pants when he saw the officers arrive.”
Williams said he believed Harris was acting erratically. He was taken into custody “without incident.”
