Warrant Issued For Armed Man In Parachute

An arrest warrant has been issued for an armed man who sent much of the town of Parachute into lock–down Wednesday.

Parachute Police have issued a warrant for 21-year-old Jared Burtard on charges of felony menacing.

Police spent much of the day Wednesday searching for Burtard.
