LOGAN — A 34-year-old Logan man was arrested after allegedly breaking into an acquaintance’s residence and then fleeing from law enforcement, according to Logan City Police. Robert R. Lindquist was booked Saturday into the Cache County Jail.

According to an arrest affidavit, officers responded to a 911 call. The alleged victim stated, Lindquist had allegedly broken into the home and was chasing her.

Police learned that Lindquist had called the victim, who he had previously been in a relationship with, and asked if he could come over. The woman refused but he allegedly opened an unsecured window and entered the home anyway. He then chased the alleged victim, grabbed her arm and took away her phone, when she called police, the report stated.

Soon after law enforcement arrived, Lindquist fled the scene as police ordered him to stop. Officers pursued after him and eventually deployed a Taser twice, when he continued to try and run away.

The affidavit claimed Lindquist’s speech was slow and slurred, and an odor of alcohol was detected to be coming from his breath. Police also located a glass pipe with burnt marijuana residue and a small silicone container with THC concentrate, belonging to the suspect.

Lindquist was booked into jail on suspicion of burglary of a dwelling, a second-degree felony; and 13 misdemeanors for failing to stop at the command of law enforcement, assault, theft, criminal mischief, intoxication and other offences.

Lindquist is being held in jail without bail. Formal charges are pending the completion of law enforcement’s investigation.

Court records show, Lindquist had two warrants for his arrest. He is already on probation and awaiting trial on drug and domestic violence charges involving the same victim.

Individuals arrested and charged in complaints are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court.
