Police officers gave chase to two different men in Logan Friday afternoon.One incident happened at the Cache Valley Bank, 1710 N. Main Street. Russell Escareno, 33, and his ex-girlfriend arrived at the bank together. The two had an argument in front of the building and Escareno ended up throwing a pocket scale at the bank’s window. Escareno then entered the bank. Police had been notified and two plain-clothes officers came into the bank, at which point Escareno exited the bank and ran. He ran through the parking lot and through a field on 1800 North. Police caught up to the man and arrested him for disorderly conduct, failure to stop at lawful command of a police officer, providing false personal information to an officer and an unrelated warrant in his name.Another chase occurred around 3 p.m. Friday. An officer at the Cache Valley Transit Center recognized 29-year-old Jose Pineda as an individual with a warrant out in his name. When the officer asked Pineda to come with him to the center, he ran through the parking lot and across traffic on 200 East. The officer chased him on foot but was unable to follow him through the traffic. Pineda’s wife was still at the Transit Center, and she talked with the officer who told her it would be best if Pineda turned himself in. An hour later, Logan City Police Department was handling another incident near Pineda’s home. Pineda turned himself in to those officers.
