MONTICELLO, Mo. — A LaGrange, Mo., man was arrested last week for violating the terms of his bond and for allegedly stealing a vehicle.

Members of the Lewis County Sheriff’s Department received a report on Jan. 23 of a vehicle from a citizen who lives near LaGrange. After further investigation, it was determined a family member had taken the vehicle without permission and traveled to Quincy or Hannibal.

Deputies entered the vehicle as stolen and asked for assistance from the Quincy Police Department. The vehicle was found in Quincy, and the driver, Brian Logsdon, was taken into custody.

Logsdon was charged with one felony count of stealing a motor vehicle, a class D felony. A person found guilty of committing a Class D felony could face up to one year in the county jail or seven years in the Missouri Department of Corrections.

Logsdon remains incarcerated in the Lewis County Jail on no bond. He also is incarcerated for violating bond conditions in connection to prior criminal charges, including domestic assault and violating an order of protection.

A probable cause statement filed in Lewis County Circuit Court by Sgt. Devon Willis with the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office says Logsdon stole a white 2012 Ford Escape at 8 a.m. on Jan. 23. He left a note at a Lewis County residence, saying he left to go look for his car. He was not allowed to leave his address without court approval, according to his bond.

A bond hearing before Judge Corey Moon was set for Feb. 5.
