Deputies looking for inmate who escaped from work release program

LOGAN — Local law enforcement are looking for a jail inmate who escaped Thursday from a work release program at the American West Heritage Center.

A press release from the Cache County Sheriff’s Office stated Joshua Michael Aders was part of a community work project when he stole a pickup truck and drove away around 11:45 a.m.

Aders was last seen in the Wellsville area, wearing black and white striped trousers, fluorescent green t-shirt, and black lace-up boots. The stolen truck was a 2005 white Ford Ranger, with an orange caution light on top of the cab, a diamond plated toolbox in the bed and Utah license plate D450Y.

Aders is a 32-year-old male, 5’11 and 160 lbs. The suspect has blue eyes and brown hair.

Court records show Aders is originally from California. He was serving a sentence on charges of fraud, theft, failure to appear warrants, and drug related crimes. He was scheduled to be released in May.

The sheriff’s office is asking that if anyone comes into contact with Aders they should call 911.
