LOGAN, Utah — Six people have been booked into the Cache County Jail following a SWAT standoff Thursday morning.

A SWAT team responded to a call about an armed robbery in Logan Thursday, which led to a brief pursuit before two suspects hid inside a home.

Police later arrested Michael Barson, 32, Andrew Wilson, 29, Daniel Folla, 32, Jessi Wolford, 30, Joseph Landon, 26 and Linda Folla, 67. All of those arrested were charged with possession of methamphetamine, a third-degree felony, among other charges.

Logan Police first tweeted about the incident around 8:20 a.m., asking residents to avoid the area of 600 North between 400 and 600 West. This area has since been cleared.

Capt. Tyson Budge of the Logan City Police Department said officers were called around 4:30 a.m. on a report of an armed robbery.

Officers responded to the area of 700 South and 200 West and a brief pursuit ensued. Two suspects were taken into custody but two others fled into a home.

Police set up a containment in the area while awaiting search warrants to enter that home. At the time, police said they believed the suspects were connected to the home and it wasn't chosen at random. They also said there appeared to be a family inside the home.

Logan City Police said in a Facebook post that the robbery complaint is still being investigated at this time and further charges against those arrested are pending.
