LOGAN — A 32-year-old Cache County jail inmate who escaped last Thursday is behind bars again. Joshua Michael Aders was arrested Monday night in Farmington.
Davis County Jail records show Aders was booked just after 9 p.m. He is being held without bail on suspicion of escaping from custody.
Agents with Adult Probation and Parole reportedly arrested Aders, living at a hotel.
Cache County Sheriff’s deputies began searching for Aders after he stole a pickup truck and drove away from a work release program at the American West Heritage Center.
Aders was last seen in the Wellsville area, wearing black and white striped trousers, fluorescent green t-shirt, and black lace-up boots. The stolen truck was a 2005 white Ford Ranger, with an orange caution light on top of the cab, a diamond plated toolbox in the bed and Utah license plate D450Y.
Court records show Aders is originally from California. He was serving a sentence on charges of fraud, theft, failure to appear warrants, and drug related crimes. He was scheduled to be released in May.
Cache County Sheriff Chad Jensen said the stolen truck was found parked in an alley by Salt Lake City police officers. It will be returned to the American West Heritage Center.
Aders is expected to be transferred back to the Cache County Jail. He will likely be arraigned on new charges Thursday afternoon.
