LOGAN — Police at Utah State University have issued an emergency warning to students and staff after a man was detained, following a reported stalking and burglary. The Code Blue alert was first sent out early Sunday morning.

According to the USU Police Department, officers on campus learned of the alleged stalking near the center of the Logan university around 12:30 a.m. The alleged suspect fled from police in the area.

Officers spent the morning searching for him. He was located and taken into custody around 11 a.m. and later released.

Law enforcement said the suspect was also wanted for questioning in relation to reported burglaries on the Logan Campus.

Police had advised students and staff on campus to ensure windows and doors were secured as a precaution. They are also warned everyone not to allow the suspect into their dorms or residences, and not to approach him if spotted.

The warnings were released as students move back to campus and classes are set to resume Tuesday.

Officers ask anyone with information about the reported stalking or burglaries to call, 435-797-1939.

Reporter’s note: The police department later removed its post of the suspect’s photo, so Cache Valley Daily has removed the photo and suspect’s identity from our website and social media pages.

    So are the students back? How was he stalking…burglary? Was this issue going on and no one was warned of break ins BEFORE he was seen? WTH? Sounds like a plot to make him guilty in the eyes of the public before he has been tried. Very sad. Hopefully better information will be brought forth by the USU Police Department.
