I'm one word off finishing a cryptic crossword and I'm stuck. Can you solve:

24a. Run away with bag, coming back for the proverbially untouchable (9)

I have the following letters - hidden for those who wish to start from scratch.

B_R_E_O_E

I can solve:

Run away with (ELOPE) + bag (GRAB), coming back = BARGEPOLE, something you proverbially wouldn't touch something untouchable with.
