The Mercury News Weekend - - NEWS -

Bur­glary sus­pect and ca­reer crim­i­nal Shane Paul Owen, 46, of South Salt Lake, Utah, was on the run from po­lice on Oct. 24when he dashed into a va­cant church. A Salt Lake City SWAT team held a stand­off at the church for­more than six hours — un­til Owen called 911to say that he was locked in the church’s boiler room and couldn’t get out. “Can you hurry?” he asked the dis­patcher. “I need to talk to them first so they don’t ... shoot me,” Owen pleaded. The De­seret News re­ported he was booked on out­stand­ing war­rants for re­tal­i­a­tion against a wit­ness, drug dis­tri­bu­tion and iden­tity fraud.
