Fleeing – Possession of a stolen firearm
426 E. 700 S.
An officer was responding to a trespasser call near Park Place apartments. Upon contact with the three subjects, one subject made furtive movements and then ran from the officer. The officer caught up with the subject a short distance away when the subject slipped, and the officer ended up on top of the subject. The subject reached again for his pocket, the officer felt the subjects pocket and realized the subject was reaching for a gun. The officer disengaged, creating space, drawing his own weapon and gave verbal commands to the subject which allowed time until more units arrived. The subject was then taken into custody without further incident. The subject was identified as Daniel Gustafson, 31. He was found to be in possession of a stolen handgun, digital scale, packaging material, cash, and the following drugs: 49 grams marijuana, 47 grams meth, 17 grams heroin and 11 tablets of Dextroamphetamine. He was booked into jail on related charges.
