Sheriff's Sgt. Lyman Moores said deputies did not find Drew Tyler Balch, 21, at a home in the 900 block of Heath Road in Carlsborg.
Balch is wanted on three felony warrants for failure to obey court orders and one misdemeanor warrant for third-degree theft.
Balch is Caucasian. He stands 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighs 140 pounds and has brown hair and eyes, Moores said.
When deputies came to the door of the Carlsborg home, a man later identified as Todd Michael Perszyk, 50, of Port Angeles refused to give his name or let the deputies in.
Deputies were about to force open the door, which Perszyk had barricaded, when Holli Ann Bell, 34, of Sequim let them in, Moores said.
Perszyk was arrested for investigation of obstructing a law enforcement officer, possession of heroin with intent to deliver and second-degree possession of stolen property.
Deputy Todd Yarnes found a stolen chain saw, reported missing about a year ago after a home burglary off West Sequim Bay Road, in the bed of Perszyk's truck parked outside the Heath Road home, Moores said.
The name on the chain saw was not Perszyk's, Moores added.
Deputies also found 3.7 grams of black-tar heroin in Perszyk's coat pocket, Moores said.
Bell was arrested on an outstanding Department of Corrections warrant, Moores added.
Both Perszyk and Bell remained in the Clallam County jail Thursday with no bond set.
The Sheriff's Office is encouraging anyone with knowledge of Balch's whereabouts to phone 360-417-4970.
