WEST JORDAN, Utah, Aug. 18, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A man was arrested Saturday night in West Jordan after allegedly entering a home brandishing a gun while drunk.
A probable cause statement from the 3rd District Court of Salt Lake City said Trevor Cooper Obray, 28, is facing charges of possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, a third-degree felony; two counts of possess/sell/transfer information of a financial transaction card, a third-degree felony; two counts of reckless endangerment, a class A misdemeanor; threat/use of a dangerous weapon in a fight, a class A misdemeanor; and failure to stop at the command of a law enforcement officer, a class A misdemeanor.
The statement said that officers responded to a weapons offense in the area of Marshrock Road in West Jordan.
“I arrived at the residence and witnesses directed me to a gentlemen who had just brandished a firearm to people at the residence,” the statement said. “The gentlemen/suspect noticed West Jordan officers were on scene; the suspect decided to run away from our patrol vehicles.”
The officer approached the suspect and told him to stop. He ran away and climbed over the backyard fence.
The suspect, subsequently identified as Obray, was later located by officers a street west of the residence.
“The suspect had on his person a firearm; a Glock 9 mm, in his right pant leg pocket post arrest,” the statement said. “Officers spoke to witnesses who saw the suspect enter to the residence unannounced and brandished a firearm. Two witnesses on scene informed officers they fought with the suspect, to take the firearm away from the him, after he threatened to shoot subjects on scene because they were not gang affiliated.”
The suspect admitted to being intoxicated while in possession of the handgun, the statement said. While searching the suspect’s wallet, two transaction cards were located which did not belong to the suspect.
Obray was transported to the Salt Lake County Jail with his bail set at $15,000.
