LCPD assists US Marshals in Saturday apprehension of suspect

<strong>LOGAN—</strong> The US Marshals, with the aid of the Logan City Police Department, apprehended a wanted fugitive in Logan Saturday near 150 North and 200 West. The suspect was apprehended without incident.

Jim Phelps, Supervisory Deputy of the US Marshals said the fugitive, Michael Charles Miller, 31, was wanted on suspicion of attempted homicide for choking his wife in Taylorsville. Prior to the incident, Miller was already on parole with charges of aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a dangerous weapon.

Phelps said the US Marshals received a tip that Miller was in Logan, and put three locations under surveillance. He was spotted by an officer entering the bottom unit of a duplex at one of the locations, and the LCPD was called in to assist in his apprehension.

Officers surrounded the home, which was occupied by adults and multiple children. Phelps said once Miller realized his situation, the suspect actually dialed 911 and told the dispatcher to inform the Marshals and LCPD officers that he was unarmed and would come out without a fight.

Phelps said the US Marshals go after state and local fugitives, and often team up with local law enforcement when apprehending suspects.
