Veneta suspect still on the run, considered armed and dangerous

Lovewell's wrap sheet shows he has an extensive criminal history, and at the moment he is still on the loose.

VENETA, Ore. - The search for Sean Lovewell continues in Veneta on Friday, who the Lane County Sheriff's Office have been looking for since Wednesday.

Officials believe the 29-year-old discharged a firearm during a dispute in Veneta on Wednesday, and then ran from deputies on Thursday as they attempted to make contact with him.

On Friday, we learned more about Lovewell's criminal history. He made the news in 2013 as police arrested him after leading officers on a high-speed chase.

Lovewell pleaded guilty to a number of charges in the case, including Possession of a Stolen Car, Attempting to Elude a Police Officer and Criminal Mischief.

At the moment, his whereabouts are still unknown.

The sheriff's office says he is possible armed, so if you see him, do not approach him. Instead, call 911 or the non-emergency line (541) 682-4150.
