LOGAN — A 31-year-old Nibley man is behind bars after a short standoff with law enforcement. Marcus J. Golden was booked Thursday afternoon into the Cache County Jail.
Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Mikelshan Bartschi said deputies were called to a residence near 3200 S. 1600 W. just after 3:15 p.m. Golden was reported to be in a domestic dispute with family members, who felt threatened.
Golden left the house and barricaded himself in a shed.
Deputies responded and safely evacuated the family from the home. They then began attempting to contact Golden, who first refused to respond.
Bartschi said a K-9 was requested as a precaution. Deputies were able to make contact with Golden on the phone.
After more than 30 minutes of negotiations over the phone, Golden surrendered peacefully. Deputies took him into custody without incident.
Bartschi said a warrant was obtained to search the home. Inside deputies found multiple firearms that had been placed throughout the residence.
Jail booking records show, Golden was arrested on suspicion of possessing a firearm as a restricted person, possession of methamphetamine and other offences. He is being held on $11,530.00 bond.
Formal charges are pending the completion of deputy’s investigation.
