A man who allegedly broke into a Logan car dealership and stole a truck, before being arrested by law enforcement in Idaho is facing a felony theft charge.

Court records show, Derek P. Henderson was arraigned in a Rexburg, Idaho Courthouse last week on one count of theft by receiving stolen property. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for July 5, when a judge will determine if prosecutors have sufficient evidence to bind him over for trial.

Logan City Police detectives claim Henderson broke into Wilson Motor Company early on the morning of June 21. After entering the business, he stole a truck that was in the repair garage and drove it through a door on the eastside of the building.

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 Henderson into custody for questioning.

Hooley said, dectectives in Idaho were reporting that Henderson was cooperating with them. He had been living in the Logan area at the time of the burglary.
