Local business owner arrested


Local business owner Melvin Lee Kellogg, 36, was arrested Monday for a failure to register violation as well as being in a protected area. Kellogg is the owner of LiquiFaction, a local business at 125 N. State Street.In the last year, the business with many windows fronting State Street has become a favorite among locals. We got involved because he runs a business here, Morgan County Detective Bill Wentland said.We started seriously taking a look at him.There were a lot of concerns because a lot of teenage kids hang around his business. Wentland said Kellogg updated his sex offender registry listing with the fact that he was a manager at LiquiFaction.However, he is the owner.In addition, law enforcement noticed his presence at a 4thof July celebration, which is considered a protected area that Kellogg was supposed to avoid.He is also supposed to avoid schools, playgrounds, etc. According to the Utah Sex Offender Registry, Kellogg was convicted in 1998 for sexual exploitation of a minor, a second degree felony.In late June, Kellogg was charged with stalking a minor in Summit County’s Third District Court.He has a court date set for Aug. 13 regarding the stalking charges. The sex offender registry lists three separate addresses for Kellogg, one in Park City, another in Coalville, and a third in Salt Lake. Kellogg and his attorney declined comment.
