OGDEN -- Police have arrested a man accused of a January burglary in which personal information from Stevens-Henager College was stolen from a storage unit.
Jesse Lee Jensen, 31, is accused of using the name of a dead man to open an account at Beehive Storage at 1890 Wall Ave., then stealing documents belonging to Stevens-Henager College listing the personal information of numerous people, among other items, according to court documents filed in 2nd District Court in Ogden.
Jensen was booked into Weber County Jail on three counts of burglary and three counts of theft, all third-degree felonies.
Police said they used surveillance video from Beehive Storage to identify Jensen in the lot at the time of the burglary Jan. 30, with another person later joining him.
Before police were alerted to the burglary, a confidential informant told them Jensen and two others were printing checks and forging temporary Utah driver's licenses in a Motel 6 room at 1455 Washington Blvd., the affidavit states. Police searched the room and found forged checks and driver's licenses, as well as the Stevens-Henager College information stolen in the storage locker burglary.
No charges have been filed in connection with this incident.
However, Jensen is also facing two counts of forgery, one count of unlawful possession of another's identification and one count of theft, all third-degree felonies, from a February arrest, according to court documents.
On Feb. 6, Jensen tried to use a false check at a Maverik convenience store at 689 Washington Blvd., a probable cause affidavit states.
He also stole two packs of cigarettes.
Police did not say whether that incident was related to the Jan. 30 burglary and declined to give specifics about the ongoing investigation.
However, Ogden Police Lt. Danielle Croyle said police are pursuing multiple cases of forgery and fraud, which are more widespread than police initially believed.
Details on how many people's information and the specific type of information taken from Stevens-Henager College were not available.
Court documents show Jensen pleaded guilty in 1999 to aggravated burglary and theft, both second-
degree felonies, in 8th District Court in Duschesne.
Jensen is being held in Weber County Jail in lieu of $30,000 bail, and he is scheduled to appear in court today regarding both arrests.
