LOGAN — A 25-year-old Logan man now faces 12 criminal cases, as prosecutors continue to allege that he was involved in multiple burglaries during the past nine months. Levi Scott Peiffer was arrested after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest in April.

Peiffer appeared Wednesday morning in 1st District Court in Logan. He has been charged with 60 counts, ranging from a pattern of unlawful activity, burglary of a vehicle, theft, unlawful acquisition of a financial card and other offenses. The charges carry penalties of up to 15 years in prison.

Defense attorney Ryan Holdaway said he was working with prosecutors on a possible plea deal but requested more time. He noted how there was “a lot of evidence to go through.”

Prosecutors allege, Peiffer was involved in multiple mail thefts, several vehicle burglaries, drug possession, and use of stolen credit cards. The crimes occurred during a seven month period from Sept. 30, 2022, to April 4, 2023.

Peiffer has a lengthy criminal history. In December 2016, he and another male individual walked into the Hyrum Subway restaurant, threatening to shoot the place up if employees didn’t give them money. They made off with about $150 and were arrested shortly after.

Peiffer later pleaded guilty to robbery, a second-degree felony, and was sentenced to six months in jail.

Since completing his sentence, Peiffer has been charged with multiple other crimes, ranging from possession or use of a controlled substance, burglary and theft. Several of the cases have been put on hold, as the defendant claimed he was seeking drug treatment and hiring an attorney.

During Wednesday’s court hearing, Peiffer told the court he had a right to a speedy trial. He noted how he had been in jail for 62 days.

Judge Brian Cannell recognized Peiffer’s rights and ordered him to appear again in court July 19.

Individuals arrested and charged in complaints are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court.
