Fugitive from Colorado arrested in Orderville
On Saturday, December 29, 2018, a Kane County Sheriff’s Deputy received a tip concerning an individual who was residing in Orderville, Utah. It was reported that the individual, 22-year-old Dylan Kade Nielsen, from Denver, had a warrant out of Colorado for failure to comply with the terms of felony probation. He was staying in a camp trailer on the property of a family member in Orderville.
A little after 9 p.m., deputies saw the suspect’s vehicle leave the residence and stopped it for speeding. After confirming the driver to be Nielsen, deputies attempted to make an arrest and he fled. Nielsen ran off the road in Mt. Carmel Junction and fled on foot.
The Kane County Sheriff’s SWAT team was activated and responded to help search for Nielsen. Officers were able to track Nielsen for some distance, but the frozen ground made tracking difficult. The search was discontinued for the night.
On Sunday morning, information was obtained that Nielsen was back at his trailer. The SWAT team once again deployed to the Orderville area. The team invited Nielsen to exit his trailer peacefully. After it was apparent that Nielsen did not intend on being compliant, the team deployed smoke and tear gas to force Nielsen to exit the trailer, where he was arrested without incident.
Nielsen was booked into the Kane County Jail on numerous charges which included the original warrant out of Colorado, numerous traffic violations from the Saturday night chase, possession of a weapon by a restricted person, and possession of drugs.
Nielsen is currently in the Kane County Jail and the case is under investigation by the Kane County Sheriff’s Office.
