HARRISVILLE -- An escaped inmate's run from the law is over.
Harrisville police brought Logan Christian Andersen, 19, back to Weber County Jail Friday afternoon. He had been missing since police say he fled custody on Dec. 29 after returning to the Kiesel Facility from a community service project.
Someone spotted him Thursday and called police but he was able to get away. He was not so lucky Friday.
Officers saw Andersen under a Chevy pick-up truck on the 900 West block of Harrisville Road at about 3:20 p.m. As they came closer he took off running and led officers on a foot chase, vaulting over fences through several back yards, said Harrsville Police Chief Maxwell Jackson.
Officers eventually caught up to him about 150 yards later. When it was apparent he was going to keep running, they stunned him with a Taser, he said.
Police booked him back into Weber County Jail for two counts of avoiding apprehension, each punishable by up to a year in jail, and one count of resisting arrest, punishable by up to six months in jail.
He also was charged in the Second District Court with escape while he was still on the lam. If he is found guilty, a judge could sentence him to up to five years in prison.
Andersen was serving time for a few misdemeanors and was scheduled to be released in March, Weber County Sheriff's Lt. Mark Lowther said.
