Marc Giauque, KSL NewsradioA North Ogden police officer is remembering his encounter with the inmate, now in jail in connection with the death of corrections guard.

It happened years ago, but it's an experience the officer won't forget.

In 2000, Officer Rusty Olsen was called to a convenience store, where the clerk was concerned about a man who'd been in the bathroom for a couple of hours.

Curtis Allgier was inside the bathroom. Olsen says Allgier claimed he was simply sleeping, but he was also reaching his arm underneath his sweatshirt. Olsen says he grabbed Allgier's arm away, then drew his weapon when he realized Allgier was concealing a gun. Olsen says, "I don't know if he was trying to protect it or I don't know if he was trying to pull it."

The gun is called a tech nine. Olsen says it carried 30 rounds of shells that could pierce bullet proof vests.

Olsen says it was an eye-opening experience in his young career. Allgier was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon.
