Staff Report

An Auburn man was unsuccessful in stealing from a home on Lack Road last week after the truck he took to the scene of the crime got stuck in the mud.

On Saturday, Dec. 23, 2017, at approximately 1 p.m. Deputy Cody Fox of the Logan County Sheriff's Department responded to a burglary at 1956 Lack Road.

According to a police report, when Fox arrived at the scene he found 21-year-old Jonathan C. Rogers of Auburn stuck in the mud in a 2010 Ford F150 truck at the residence. After an investigation, it was determined that Rogers had broken into the garage and moved a camper before attempting to use a tractor to remove his vehicle. He was unsuccessful, however, because the tractor has a dead battery.

Rogers then attempted to use his own vehicle to start the tractor, to no avail. He also attempted, unsuccessfully to use items from the garage as well as another vehicle to get his truck out of the mud.

Multiple items were stolen from inside the garage and home.

Rogers was placed under arrest and lodged in the Logan County Detention Center on charges of second degree burglary, third degree burglary, second degree criminal mischief and second degree criminal trespassing.

Fox is the arresting officer and was assisted on the scene by Sgt. Clint Wright and Deputy Jordan Kennedy.
