A Duchesne Man Breaks Into A Home, Claiming He Went There To Get His Phone


| Duchesne, Ut. | June 21st, 2024 |

At 10:45 am, a Duchesne County Deputy was dispatched to a suspected burglary incident in Duchesne City.

The complainant identified the intruder as 37-year-old Matthew Lamont Larsen and told dispatch he had left the home on foot and was heading toward his residence.

Deputy Green went to Matthew's residence, where he was awaiting law enforcement. The Deputy began to have a conversation with Matthew, who explained he knew he wasn't supposed to be at the complainant's home because she had told him he was no longer welcome at her property, but he wanted to get his phone from her.

Matthew explained to the deputy that he had broke into the residence by breaking in through the locked rear door. He then fled the home when the complainant said she was calling the police.

Deputy Davis arrived on scene to supervise Matthew while Deputy Green went to speak with the complainant and document the damages.

The complainant stated she was lying down in her bedroom when Matthew broke through the closed and locked door. When inside, he threw a half-full coffee mug into her room. She said Matthew reached for her purse while yelling at her.

The complainant stood up and confronted Matthew, taking her purse from him. She explained they began to yell at each other, and she reached for her phone to call for the police, and Matthew ran out the door.

The complainant took Deputy Green to the damaged door, where he saw that the door frame clearly had damage consistent with forced entry while the door was deadbolted.

Based on the information gathered, Matthew is being charged with Criminal Trespass for unlawfully entering the complainant’s residence after receiving personal communication from her that he is no longer allowed to be at her home.

Due to the manner of entry and the damages to the back door frame of the home by Matthew's intrusion, Matthew is being charged with criminal mischief for the financial loss equal to or over $500 but less than $1,500 in value.

Matthew Larsen was later released from jail custody.
