A Male Causes Chaos After Breaking Into An Altamont Home


| Altamont, Ut. | April 26th, 2024 |

At 6:19 p.m., Duchesne County Deputies were dispatched to 15550 West 3700 North on a report of several people screaming at each other.

The subject was later found to have a valid protective order that was served against him on 4/5/24 prohibiting him from coming to this address. The address is the home of him and his ex-wife, who was not on scene. She had left five minutes before 29-year-old Brian Verl Myrup arrived.

A third person was on the scene who saw the original altercation and overheard the screaming.

It was found that Brian had made demands to the third-party victims to leave the area, and he was making threats to harm them. Brian also had the title to a vehicle that belonged to the ex-wife in his possession that he obtained post-divorce, which he had unlawfully taken the day before when Brian was seen by witnesses breaking into this home through a window.

Brain tried to convince the deputies that the car was given to him by his ex-wife when it really had been given to a third party. The third party left prior to the deputies' arrival, and Brian retained unauthorized control of the vehicle during that time frame.

During the investigation, it was also found that Brian gained access to the home on this day by prying the back door open. The front and back doors were damaged with pry marks. This was consistent with what a witness stated: Brian had a handheld tool while trying to gain entry, and later, the witness saw him go through the back and front doors.

The great commotion between the subject and the third party was so loud that it gained the attention of an uninvolved witness who filed the report. The reporting party was concerned for their safety to the point of asking that their information was not released for fear of retaliation due to the violent nature of the matter.

Brian was booked into the Duchesne County Jail on the charges of protective order violation with priors filing at a 3rd-degree felony. Charges for 3rd-degree burglary have been submitted as the subject committed theft of government documents during the first entry of the property. Brian was found to still be in possession of vehicle title government documents, which were filed as a class A misdemeanor. That the subject further exercised unauthorized control of a vehicle to which he did not have permission and is filed as a Class A misdemeanor. Threats of violence for making claims of hurting another person by force while in a fight or quarrel were filed as a Class B misdemeanor, and Disorderly conduct for causing a loud, tumultuous confrontation that could be heard by people inside their home to the point of causing fear or alarm resulting in Law Enforcement response.

The Prior DV protective order violation shows disposition awaiting as of 01/14/2024 and a second charge of DV assault with a No Contest plea entered in on 06/23/2017.

Brian Myrup is being held without bail.
