LOGAN — A 39-year-old Logan man has been sentenced to more prison time after admitting to burglarizing a second home in 2022. Thomas Elliott Arzon and Lenzie Null were originally arrested after Cache County Sheriff’s deputies tracked them to a Logan apartment complex, Nov. 14, 2022. Investigators later determined that he had been suspected in another burglary a month earlier.

According to court records, Arzon appeared April 17 in Logan’s 1st District Court. He pleaded guilty to burglary, amended to a third-degree felony. The crime occurred Oct. 12, 2022. A remaining charge of theft was dismissed by prosecutors.

Arzon was arrested after Cache County Sheriff’s deputies received a 911 call about a burglary in progress. The complainant reported an unknown adult white male was in their mother’s room going through items, trying to take jewelry and ammo.

Deputies identified a black Mazda with a spoiler on the trunk, seen on security footage at the end of the home’s driveway. An adult white female could be seen in the car as the male suspect exited the home, got inside and drove away.

Shortly after, law enforcement located the vehicle at an apartment complex in Logan, less than a mile from the victim’s home. The man and woman, later identified as Arzon and Lenzie Null, were found hiding under a bridge less than two blocks away.

Deputies obtained a warrant to search the defendant’s apartment. Inside they found a laptop and pillowcase, matching the stolen items. Arzon also had coins, jewelry and a large amount of cash in his pockets.

Law enforcement located a backpack, containing marijuana and a small amount of white crystal like substance. Multiple small bags, a digital scale and other drug paraphernalia were found.

Arzon accepted a previous plea deal in January 2023 for the November 2022 burglary. He pleaded guilty in Logan’s 1st District Court to burglary and possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, both third-degree felonies; and possession or use of a controlled substance, a class A misdemeanor. He was sentenced to serve zero to five years at the Utah State Correctional Facility. 

During Arzon’s hearing April 17, Judge Brian Cannell sentenced Thomas to zero to five-years in the Utah State Correctional Facility. The term will run concurrent with the earlier sentence.

According to court records, Null accepted a plea deal last month and is scheduled to be sentenced May 22. She could face up to three years in jail.
