LOGAN — Students and faculty at Logan High School were temporarily placed on lockdown Monday morning after a suspicious individual was reported outside the building with a gun. Police later arrested Kristopher Egbert, a 36-year-old Logan man on suspicion of committing aggravated assault and disorderly conduct.
School officials notified parents that Egbert was reported to have been seen on the school’s sidewalk in the north parking lot with a gun. The school was immediately put on lockdown and law enforcement was alerted.
Logan City Police Capt. Curtis Hooley said around 11 a.m. Egbert confronted two females, a 17 and 19-year-old, who had allegedly just taken a bicycle from his front yard. He pointed a handgun at them and ordered them to get on the ground.
While Egbert was putting the stolen bike back into his truck, the women got up and fled toward the high school. As he chased them, they ran inside the building and notified officials.
Hooley said when Egbert entered the breezeway of the school he was met by the school resource officer and administrators. He no longer had the gun in his possession.
Police later obtained a warrant to search Egbert’s truck and found both the alleged handgun and bike.
Egbert is temporarily being held in the Cache County Jail without bail. Formal charges are pending the completion of officer’s investigation.
Police are also investigating the alleged stolen bicycle. They are working with the two women to determine who reportedly took the bike from Egbert’s yard. Charges are also pending in that case too.
School officials said once the threat was determined to be contained, the lockdown was lifted. They thanked law enforcement for quickly responding and maintaining safety during the incident.
