SAN JOSE -- A yard-to-yard search of a San Jose neighborhood this afternoon did not turn up a suspect wanted by Milpitas police for multiple felony warrants, police said.

Police first started looking for the man, a wanted parolee, at about 2:15 p.m. when he was located in the 1000 block of Junesong Way in San Jose, Milpitas police Sgt. Raj Maharaj said.

He fled from his vehicle and into a neighborhood, throwing a gun away as he ran, Maharaj said.

He jumped fences into neighborhood backyards to evade the officers. San Jose police assisted in the investigation by providing traffic control, establishing a perimeter and conducting a yard-to-yard search, San Jose police Sgt. Jason Dwyer said.

Police continued to search the area until shortly after 7:30 p.m. when they called it off with the suspect still at large.

Police have not yet identified the suspect or disclosed the nature of his warrants. Maharaj said he is considered armed and dangerous.
