Man suspected of multiple burglaries being considered for Drug Court

LOGAN — A 20-year-old Millville man, arrested last week on suspicion of a string of burglaries, is being referred to a court supervised treatment program for his drug addictions.

Kyle A. Christiansen continued his initial appearance in 1st District Court Tuesday morning. He has been charged with six counts of burglary, a third-degree felony, and 10 other misdemeanors of theft and criminal mischief.

Christiansen was arrested early Thursday morning after police witnessed him driving away from Fast Cache Pawn. When they conducted a traffic stop they found several items inside his vehicle believed to be stolen. Investigators later tied him to several other burglaries earlier that night and in April.

During Tuesday’s court appearance, Christiansen’s public defender said his client wished to be admitted to Drug Court, a courtroom program supervised by a judge. During the program, he’ll undergo treatment and counseling, make regular appearances before the judge, submit to frequent and random drug testing, and be monitored by probation officers.

Judge Brian Cannell said he would refer Christiansen to the program and ordered him to appear again in court July 19 to review if he is admitted. He remains in jail on $48,000 bail.
