EAGLE POINT, Ore. — Deputies are searching for a potentially "armed and dangerous" suspect following a home-invasion robbery at an illegal marijuana grow operation east of Eagle Point on Thursday night, according to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.

The robbery victim described the suspect as an Asian male, possibly armed with a handgun. He abandoned a vehicle outside of Eagle Point on Highway 140 and is believed to be in the area on foot. Anyone who sees him is asked not to approach and instead to call 911 immediately.

Sheriff's Office deputies, Oregon State Police troopers, and officers from the Eagle Point Police Department responded to a home-invasion armed robbery and assault in-progress at a marijuana grow near Eagle Point on Thursday evening.

Dispatch received a call reporting a break-in and assault at a warehouse on Lake Creek Loop, which is off Highway 140 east of Eagle Point. Upon arrival, officers were able to arrest one suspect, but two more got away.

JCSO said that one of the suspects was found and arrested while trying to hitchhike along Highway 140 two hours later. The other suspect remains on the loose and is considered armed and dangerous.

"Investigations are ongoing with deputies working several leads to identify and track the outstanding suspect," the agency said.

The Sheriff's Office identified the two suspects in custody as 49-year-old Kien Vihn Vong and 51-year-old Vay San Duong, both of Sacramento. Both face charges for four counts of first-degree robbery, four counts of second-degree robbery, one count first-degree burglary, unlawful use of a weapon, four counts of second-degree assault, and one count first-degree theft.

It took some time, but the Jackson County Sheriff's Office confirmed that the grow and processing site where the home invasion happened was an unlicensed operation.

Detectives from Major Assault Death Investigative Unit (MADIU) and the Illegal Marijuana Enforcement Team (IMET) are assisting investigations.
