PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland fugitive is on the loose after running away from a U.S. Marshal and police Friday morning.

A deputy U.S. Marshal traveling in the area of Southeast 125th and Taggart Street spotted Tyrone Albert Grey Brown at 7:15 a.m.

The marshal said he recognized the man walking as a wanted suspect with warrants out of Multnomah County for felony drug charges related to meth possession and parole violation.

The marshal advised Portland police, who responded to assist.

As officers confronted Brown, he ran away through the neighborhood. K-9 units attempted to locate him and officers tracked him to a vacant house near Southeast 125th and Ivon Street.

Police said the back door had been kicked, but Brown was not found inside or in the area.

Investigators said Brown has a history of carrying weapons and eluding law enforcement. If you see him, you're asked to call Portland police.
