The Green Bay Police Department is searching for a man it considers armed and dangerous for an armed robbery in Milwaukee and alleged domestic disturbance in Green Bay.

Jason Poe, 20, has a felony warrant for his arrest in Milwaukee, according to police.

Poe's girlfriend called police this morning reporting a domestic disturbance on the east side of Green Bay, police said. She told police Poe stole her car.

Poe led police on a chase in that stolen car before crashing into a snowbank and running away in the area of Shawano Avenue and Alvina Street, according to police.

Police searched for a few hours with a K9 unit but could not find Poe, and are now asking for the public's help.

Poe is described as a 5'8" black man weighing about 130 pounds. He was last seen wearing dark jeans and gray hooded sweatshirt, according to police.

Those with information of Poe's location, or if you believe you saw him, are urged to contact police immediately and do not approach. He has a prior history of being armed and therefore considered dangerous.

The Police Department has lifted the lockdowns at Chappell and Franklin. Morning 4K students are being dismissed, and the other classes will dismiss as normal today.
