GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Officers from multiple agencies and SWAT surrounded a house on Sun Glo Drive in Grants Pass Wednesday after deputies went looking for a wanted man, according to the Josephine County Sheriff's Office. The agency later revealed that he was not inside, and must have run away before reinforcements arrived at the scene.

The Sheriff's Office said that 33-year-old Marshall Brodie Elliot was wanted for a laundry list of serious charges as part of an ongoing investigation. Just before noon on Wednesday, a deputy reportedly saw Elliot outside of a home in the 1600-block of Sun Glo Drive.

"It is believed that Elliot concealed himself in the residence after seeing the deputy," the Sheriff's Office said. "Based on the nature of the charges Elliot is wanted for, the Sheriff’s Office requested assistance from the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety."

Police said around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday that they had shut down Sun Glo Drive between Mendi Way and Nick Way on the west side of Grants Pass for an ongoing "tactical operation." GPDPS said that officers were assisting the Josephine County Sheriff's Office with an incident on Sun Glo.

"Please avoid the area for the time being. We will provide updates as they become available," GPDPS said in a brief statement.

The Sheriff's Office said that police officers responded immediately. While the agency worked to obtain a search warrant for the home, Grants Pass called in its SWAT team.

As of 4 p.m., the Sheriff's Office said that officers were "still in the process of conducting the search warrant" in order to arrest Elliot. Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 541-474-5123.

At 5:40 p.m., GPDPS sent out and updated statement indicating that Sun Glo had been reopened to the public. The agency said that the scene was "secured," and had been turned over to the Sheriff's Office.

"Thank you for your patience," GPDPS said.

A Sheriff's Office statement released shortly after said that Elliot had not been taken into custody and was still wanted by authorities.

"Upon further investigation it was determined that Marshall Elliott had fled out of the residence prior to law enforcement securing the perimeter. Marshall Elliot remains a wanted fugitive," the Sheriff's Office said.

Elliot was wanted on charges for Robbery I, Assault II, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Burglary I, Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle, and Criminal Mischief II. He was described as being six feet and one inch tall, about 260 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 541-474-5123. Authorities ask that you call 911 if you come in contact with Elliot.
