The Long County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a burglary suspect who is considered armed and dangerous.
LCSO Chief Investigator Nickey Anderson said that Brandon Evon Izzard, 23, remains at large after he was released last week from Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah.
Izzard was shot by a Ludowici police officer in December after he allegedly resisted arrest and attempted to draw the peace officer’s firearm from its holster.
Izzard is believed to be one of four suspects in a home invasion on Arnold Drive. He and three other Long County men were stopped after they allegedly fled from the scene in a car.
The family that lives in the house had been held at gunpoint.
Anderson said a pistol that reportedly was seen at the Arnold Drive break-in never was recovered and authorities believe Izzard may have that weapon.
According to the chief investigator, Izzard is facing charges of armed robbery, burglary, obstruction of a police officer in the performance of his job and aggravated assault on a police officer.
Anyone who sees Izzard or has information on his whereabouts should call the LCSO at 545-2118 or the LPD at 545-9472. Any tips will be kept confidential.
