CLEARFIELD, Utah (ABC 4 News) - The Davis County Sheriff's Office says deputies made two arrests at a Clearfield home after encountering a barricaded, booby-trapped door.
Davis County officials say deputies attempted to serve felony warrants on one of the suspects, and that when they arrived, a sheriff's K9 unit alerted them to the presence of illegal narcotics at the door.
When the officers knocked, officials say no one answered the door, although they could hear movement inside.
Davis County officials say the officers left and obtained a search warrant, discovering that the suspect had counter-surveillance around the exterior of the home when they returned.
Officials say Clearfield Police Department officers and Davis County Deputies again tried to make contact with the suspect, but there was still no answer at the door.
When officers were able to make entry, Davis County officials say they discovered that the front door was fortified by 2 x 4's, and was also wired for electricity, in order to electrocute anyone who entered entering.
Davis County officials say no officers were injured by the booby-trapped door, because the suspects failed to plug the wiring in.
Once inside, officials say officers located the suspect's girlfriend, 22-year-old Chelsie Martinez, who was described as not being cooperative. She was arrested on several charges, including possession of controlled substance and obstruction of justice.
Officials say an hour later, 36-year-old Brandon Michael Lewis was located hiding in the attic under piles of insulation. Lewis was arrested on suspicion of possession of controlled substance with intent to distribute and his warrants.
