Logan man sentenced to jail for vehicle burglary in Logan Canyon

Josh Haag, 18, was booked into the Cache County Jail on three initial charges of obstructing justice, burglary of a vehicle and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, all misdemeanors. 

LOGAN — A 18-year-old Logan man, Joshua Haag has been sentenced to a year in jail, in connection with a vehicle break-in last summer in Logan Canyon.

On July 31, deputies arrested Haag and two other juveniles after they called 911 claiming they had rolled their vehicle above the Temple Fork turnoff. The three claimed to be escaping from a ranch herder who had fired at them with a shotgun.

Later that morning, deputies located the wrecked vehicle and questioned the ranch herder. He told investigators he had caught Haag and the two others ransacking his campsite.

Haag later pleaded guilty to burglary of a vehicle and obstructing justice. While released, pending sentencing, he was arrested again and charged with criminal trespass, failing to stop at the command of law enforcement and other charges.

During Monday’s sentencing in 1st District Court, Judge Thomas Willmore said Haag’s actions are out of control. He ordered him to no more than a year in jail but would allow him to be released in a month if he can gain full time employment. A review hearing has been set for February 8.
