EUREKA, Utah, March 10, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — A man was taken into custody Wednesday in Eureka after threatening to kill a Utah State Adult Probation and Parole officer.
The incident started Wednesday afternoon when authorities say received a credible tip from someone who told them that Brian Terry, 24, had said he had access to firearms and had made threats to kill an A&P officer.
Juab County Sheriff’s deputies and troopers with the Utah Highway Patrol went to Terry’s residence in an attempted to make contact with him, but received no response.
Unsure of Terry’s exact location, a lockdown was ordered for Juab County schools located in Mona, Nephi and Eureka. Juab County Complex as well as the Fourth District Courthouse were placed on lockout as a precautionary measure. They were all later evacuated.
Authorities had set up a perimeter around Terry’s home, and UCSO deputies, along with members of Utah County Metropolitan S.W.A.T., gained entry to the home where they found Terry, unresponsive, along with an arsenal of weapons.
Authorities believed Terry may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and he was transported to Central Valley Medical Center in Nephi. He faces charges of making terroristic threats, possession of firearms by a restricted person, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.
