Bounty hunter makes mistake and targets police chief

By Owen Weldon     Aug 6, 2015 in Crime
Phoenix - An Arizona bounty hunter found himself behind bars after he and armed bail bondsmen ended up at the house of a police chief in Arizona.
The men arrived at Phoenix Police Chief Joseph Yahner's home on Tuesday evening. A truck pulled up and blocked the driveway while one was shouting orders for Yahner to open the door and exit the home.
Police say that Brent Farley, 43, and 10 others, thought they had a fugitive wanted on a drug charge cornered. However, they were told they had the wrong home and were asked to leave, which they did not do.
Farley, the owner of NorthStar Fugitive Recovery, is facing charges of criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct. An employee for NorthStar said that the event was blown out of proportion.
Police received a call and made their way to the scene. When they arrived, they found Farley's employees, as well as employees of Delta One Tactical Recovery surrounding the chief's home. One of the men in the group engaged in a verbal confrontation with the chief.
A spokesman for Phoenix police said that the bondsmen were filming the incident like it was made for television. The spokesman added that if the employees at the two companies did a title search on the home, then they would have realized who lived there.
