Redmond Police got a tip that two men wanted for outstanding felony warrants were at a residence in Metolius.

 

Lt. Nathan Garibay says the information was learned during the investigation of the Redmond jewelry store robbery on Tuesday.

 

The men, Nathan Lee Danison, 34, and Merton Gerald “Jerry” Bean, 43,  are wanted on felony warrants and are persons of interest in pending criminal investigations in Redmond.

 

Shortly after 2 p.m. on Wednesday, a traffic stop results in Danison's arrest. 

 

The other suspect, Jerry Bean, was thought to be holed up in the Metolius home; so the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team surrounded the residence for several hours in efforts to locate him.

 

A search warrant allowed the home to be entered,  but no one was found.

 

Danison is lodged in the Deschutes County Jail; but Bean is still at large and considered  armed and dangerous.

 

Anyone with information of Bean's whereabouts is urged to call the Redmond Police Department or the 911 non-emergency number (541-693-6911).
