LOGAN — A 38-year-old Logan man has been arrested and charged with multiple felonies, alleging that he robbed a business and stole a vehicle. Benjamin Nelson was booked into the Cache County Jail Saturday afternoon.

Cache County Sheriff Chad Jensen said investigators were following up on a domestic violence case involving Nelson, when they discovered evidence linking him to a burglary and vehicle theft. Deputies allege he broke into the business and assaulted the owner. They also believe he was involved in the theft of a Toyota truck, taken from the Providence area.

Nelson appeared in 1st District Court Monday afternoon. Prosecutors have filed multiple charges against him including aggravated burglary, a first-degree felony, theft, a second-degree felony, and aggravated assault and burglary, both third-degree felonies.

Judge Kevin Allen ordered Nelson be held without bail and appear again in court next week.

Jensen said the Sheriff’s Office is continuing their investigation for evidence and other possible charges against Nelson.
