Wellsville man arrested on rape and sodomy charges

Ray Reeder, 45, arrested on two counts of rape, a first-degree felony and two counts of sodomy, a second-degree felony. He is being held on a $100,000 bail.

LOGAN — A 45-year-old Wellsville man was arrested Wednesday night on rape and sodomy charges and is now being held in the Cache County Jail.

Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Mike Peterson said Ray Reeder was arrested on two counts of rape, a first-degree felony and two counts of sodomy, a second-degree felony. He is being held on a $100,000 bail.

Earlier this month, a female teenager told a school councilor how Reeder had raped her. The councilor notified the sheriff’s office and Division of Child and Family Services, who began investigating.

Peterson said Reeder was cooperative during the investigation and was arrested without incident.

The case has now been turned over to the Cache County Attorney’s Office for review.

Peterson said they believe this was an isolated incident and there are no other victims.
