Logan man arrested after barricading himself in friend’s home

Law enforcement standoff near 475 N 400 E Logan

LOGAN — Police arrested a 36-year-old man Monday afternoon who tried to run from officers and barricade himself inside an apartment.

Logan City Police Chief Gary Jensen said officers received a call about a fight on Main Street, involving Brady Young. When they tried to pull the suspect over he fled to an apartment near 475 North 400 East, locking himself inside.

“We obtained a search warrant to go in after him,” said Jensen. “When we opened the door, it appeared to be that he was non-compliant. We threatened to send a dog in and he became compliant. He didn’t want to get bit and I don’t blame him. So at that point, we were able to go in and take custody of him.”

Jensen said Young reportedly knew the residents who lived in the apartment but did not have permission to enter. No one was inside at the time.

Police put neighboring Adams Elementary on “lock-out,” where classes were able to continue but visitors were prohibited from entering the building. The action was a precaution in case Young tried to flee again.

Officers have had previous involvements with Young. He could be facing felony charges of fleeing from officers and burglary.
