SHARE LOGAN MAN PLEADS GUILTY IN HIGH-TECH `PEEPING’ CASE

A Logan man accused of using high-tech equipment to spy on women pleaded guilty Thursday in Logan Municipal Court.

Bruce J. Thomson, 32, pleaded guilty to criminal trespass, a Class B misdemeanor, as part of a plea bargain in which a charge of lewdness, also a Class B misdemeanor, was dropped.Thomson was charged after a July 6 incident in which residents at an apartment discovered a light-sensing device at a window after chasing a man from the scene.

The device, which had Thomson's name on it, had a long cord and emitted a sound into earphones when it detected light. Police speculate the device could be placed outside a window and the cord extended into bushes where the suspect could hide and be alerted to lights coming on in a residence.

Sentencing has been set for Sept. 13.
