News Release
Authorities searching for armed subject at large in Noti (Photo) - 06/18/21


As of 5:20pm authorities are re-opening Hwy. 126 near milepost 39.  The suspect’s whereabouts are currently unknown and it is possible that he has already fled the area.  Residents are asked to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activity to police immediately.  A heavy police presence is still on scene actively searching for the suspect.   


*Update* - The previous release stated the suspect was believed to be wearing a light shirt.  The suspect was last spotted in a dark colored shirt.


On 06/18/21 shortly after 12:00pm, the Oregon State Police and Lane County Sheriff’s Office responded to the report of a vehicle crash on Hwy. 126 near milepost 39 in Noti.  The driver of the involved vehicle, a white Dodge 243LWL, was no longer on scene when authorities arrived.  This vehicle is believed to be linked to the homicides that occurred in the North Bend area earlier today.

The suspect in this case is described as a white male adult standing approximately 6’02” and weighing approximately 200lbs.  He was further described as having short hair and wearing a light colored t-shirt and blue jeans.  He is to be considered armed and dangerous.  Residents in the area are asked to shelter in place and to immediately report any suspicious activity to authorities.

Anyone who saw the involved vehicle during or following the crash or anyone matching the suspect description is asked to contact the Lane County Sheriff’s Office at 541-682-4150 opt. 1.  We are additionally hoping to contact the driver of a small white sedan that may have stopped at the crash scene.

Attached is a photo of the suspect taken earlier today.  Updates will be provided as they become available.
