BCSO Deputies, General Crimes Unit Arrest Ryan Logan For Barefoot Bay Crime Spree
By Wayne Ivey, Brevard County Sheriff // November 4, 2016
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – I wanted to recognize our South Precinct Deputies and General Crimes Unit Agents who recently investigated and arrested 24-year-old Ryan Patrick Logan for committing several crimes in the Barefoot Bay area.
On October 19, the Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of an attempted robbery of a person at the Winn Dixie Shopping Center in Micco.
Agents subsequently learned that an 89-year-old resident had been approached by a subject requesting a ride from the area. The victim agreed to the request only to have the suspect attempt to rob him of his valuables while also attempting to steal the victim’s vehicle.
The victim fought back forcing the suspect to run off. Video surveillance footage from the store showed the suspect, identified later that week as Ryan Logan who was closely following the victim throughout his shopping trip and then waited for him to depart the store.
An arrest warrant was then obtained for Logan and the agents began actively searching for him.
On October 24, the Sheriff’s Office received a complaint from an 88-year-old resident of Barefoot Bay who reported that he had loaned an individual his golf cart under the auspices of “needing to clear some yard waste.”
The golf cart was never returned to the owner and it was subsequently discovered to have been driven to a local pawn shop and sold.
While investigating that theft, Agents were able to determine that the individual who “borrowed” the victim’s golf cart and subsequently sold it to the pawn shop was Ryan Logan.
On October 29, Deputy William Hammer observed Logan in Micco.
Deputy Hammer was able to arrest Logan without further incident. During the course of the arrest and search of his person, Deputies discovered a checkbook and $337 in cash on Logan’s person. The checkbook did not appear to belong to him.
Deputies immediately made efforts to contact the person whose name appeared on the checks. The Deputies located the owner, a 98-year-old resident of Barefoot Bay, and determined that someone had unlawfully entered the home by smashing out a rear bedroom window.
The victim was able to determine that both his checkbook and $342 in cash were missing. Investigators were able to determine that both the checkbook and the cash belonged to the victim of this burglary.
As a result of the investigation Logan was taken into custody on various charges and is currently being held at the Brevard County Jail Complex on a $200,000.000 bond.
Logan is a convicted felon with an extensive criminal history including arrests for Burglary, Dealing in Stolen Property, Grand Theft, Theft of a Firearm, Battery on a Person Older than 65 Years Old and Violation of Probation.
I could not be more proud of our South Precinct Deputies and our General Crimes Agents for their efforts to protect our citizens by taking Logan off the street and getting him safely behind bars where he can’t victimize anyone else.
