CACHE COUNTY (ABC4 News) – Cache County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to be on alert after an inmate escaped custody Thursday.

Deputies said an inmate named Joshua Michael Aders walked away from a volunteer assignment late Thursday morning. 

Aders was working as part of a community work project where inmates that have a history of good behavior are allowed to volunteer. Deputies said during this work shift, around 11:45 a.m., Aders stole a pick-up truck and drove away.

Aders was last seen in the Wellsville area wearing black and white striped trousers, fluorescent green t-shirt and black lace-up boots.

The pick-up truck he is traveling in is a 2005 white Ford Ranger with an orange caution light on top of the cab, a diamond plated tool box in the bed with Utah license plate D450Y.

Anyone that comes into contact with Aders should call 911.

Deputies said before recently moving to Utah, Aders was a resident of California.

Aders was serving a sentence in the Cache County Jail on charges of fraud, theft, failure to appear warrants, and drug-related crimes. He was scheduled to be released from jail in May 2019.

Anyone with information regarding Aders should contact law enforcement by dialing 911 or 435-753-7555.
