Logan man pleads guilty to multiple drug charges after April raid

LOGAN — A 43-year-old man, whose Logan home was raided by police earlier this year, has pleaded guilty to multiple drug crimes and will now wait to be sentenced.

Shane M. Spencer accepted a plea deal Tuesday morning in 1st District Court. The Logan man pleaded guilty to an amended charge of knowingly producing a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, and permitting a child to be exposed to a controlled substance. The charges are all third-degree felonies and carry a maximum sentence of up to five-years in prison. 

On April 11, the Cache Rich Drug Task Force raided Spencer’s home at 453 West 200 North. Agents suspected the residence was being used as a drug house, after a child born earlier from the home, tested positive for methamphetamine.

Police arrested Spencer and four other adults. He was originally charged with five felonies and one misdemeanor. Prosecutors dropped three of the charges as part of the plea deal.

During Tuesday’s court appearance, state attorney Barbara Lachmar said police found drugs and paraphernalia inside the home and Spencer’s bedroom during the April raid. A child later tested positive for drug exposure.

Judge Brian Cannell scheduled sentencing for January 3.

Spencer remains out of jail after posting $35,000 bail.
