LOGAN — Police have arrested a man they believe may have broke into a Logan car dealership early Tuesday morning and stole a truck. The burglary occurred at Wilson Motor Company around 3:00 a.m. and was reported by employees when they arrived later for work.

Police Capt. Curtis Hooley said investigators believe the burglar entered the business and stole a truck that was in the repair garage.

“They drove the truck through the east door of Wilson Motor’s repair facility and had taken off,” said Hooley.

Officers contacted regional law enforcement agencies requesting them to be on the lookout for the truck. It was later found by police in the Idaho Falls area, who conducted a traffic stop, taking the driver Derek Henderson into custody for questioning.

Hooley said investigators here are now working with detectives in Idaho to piece together what happened.

“Trying to determine whether or not he is the one that broke into Wilson, he was certainly the one who was in possession of the stolen vehicle.”

Henderson had been living in the Logan area. Charges and extradition are pending the completion of the investigation.
