LOGAN — Police have arrested a 46-year-old North Logan man, suspected of having sex with a teenage girl. Lance Traveller was booked Tuesday afternoon into the Cache County Jail.
Logan City Police Capt. Curtis Hooley said detectives began investigating Traveller after the alleged victim’s mom found messages between the two of them. She called police and reported the relationship.
The 17-year-old girl allegedly told officers she met the suspect at the Cache Valley Transit Center. He would reportedly provide her alcohol and then engage in sexual activity. He would also take photos of her in various stages of undress, which is considered child pornography because of her age.
Traveller is being held in jail on $23,900 bail. He is expected to be arraigned on formal charges in 1st District Court Thursday afternoon.
Court records show in October 2017, Traveller was sentenced to serve one-year in jail after being convicted of resisting arrest and possession of a firearm by a restricted person.
