ROSEBURG, Ore. — Law enforcement agencies are looking for a Roseburg man considered "armed and dangerous" after he slipped away following a chase on Tuesday afternoon.
Officers began looking for 32-year-old Michael Andrew Cordz after he reportedly broke into his ex-girlfriend's home, according to the Winston Police Department and Douglas County Sheriff's Office (DCSO).
"Cordz has been making threats toward the female and is believed to be armed," DCSO said in a statement.
Just before 11 a.m. on Tuesday morning, deputies received a call about a suspicious vehicle parked in the 5500-block of Roberts Creek Road. When deputies and Winston Police officers arrived, they realized that the vehicle belonged to Cordz. He ran away when officers approached.
"Deputies activated the reverse 9-1-1 system to notify area residents, who were asked to shelter in place and report any suspicious activity to law enforcement," the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said.
Officers searched the area but didn't find Cordz. They said that they found several loaded guns in Cordz' vehicle.
"We want the public to be aware of this situation and report any suspicious activity immediately. If Mr. Cordz is seen, do not approach him, but call 9-1-1. Cordz is considered armed and dangerous," said Winston Police Chief Brandon Sarti.
Cordz is described as a white man, about 6' and 255 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He has several tattoos which include a rose and microphones on his chest and a spiderweb on his elbow.
