Deputies say felon hid in house for several hours

Published 11:03am Tuesday, August 6, 2013

The convict who hid in a cornfield for nearly three hours near Lyle last summer has been charged again after allegedly violating a protection order and avoiding deputies and hiding in a house for nearly 4.5 hours.

Deputies went to the rural Lyle home on Aug. 2 to serve an arrest warrant on Brian Jerome Jansen, 43. According to the court complaint, Jansen had absconded from court-ordered treatment earlier in the week and was violating a restraining order by being at the home.

A woman said Jansen was in the home; however, Jansen barricaded himself inside and would not come out for deputies. Deputies called the special incident response team as they feared Jansen would be dangerous, given his past conviction.

Jansen hid in a cornfield on July 11, 2012, with a shotgun before he was later arrested and convicted for possession of a short-barrel shotgun, a felony, and fourth-degree assault of a peace officer, a gross misdemeanor.

According to the recent court complaint, Jansen was hiding in an attic but was arrested without further incident when authorities found him. He was charged Monday with violating an order for protection with two or more convictions, a felony.
