Drug bust leads to arrest of burglar

LOGAN – A 16-year-old male is facing 12 counts of theft and criminal mischief after Logan police arrested him for possession of drug paraphernalia on Tuesday.

After the teenager was referred to the juvenile court system, an investigator noticed clothing similarities between the youth and a suspect in a theft case in which a cash box was stolen from a local fireworks stand July 1.

Police questioned the teen and Thursday he confessed to the theft, as well as five automobile burglaries.

“We were able to identify property that came from three of the five burglaries,” said Jeff Curtis, assistant police chief for the Logan Police Department. “He reported one car that he burglarized that never reported a burglary so we don’t know who that is.”

Curtis said that potential victims can contact the police to claim their property.

The teenager has been placed in the custody of the Cache Detention Facility, and is facing one count of Class A misdemeanor retail theft, five counts of Class A misdemeanor automobile burglary, one count of Class B Misdemeanor criminal mischief and three counts of Class B misdemeanor theft.
