A former Lancaster County Court employee has received diversion in an attempted burglary case in which deputies alleged he was caught on a trail camera trying to break into a rural Lincoln home, according to court documents.

Logan M. Sikes, 21, had faced two counts of attempted burglary at the home in the 1200 block of Rokeby Road in October and August.

Chief Deputy Todd Duncan of the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office said a resident who knows Sikes called the sheriff's office Oct. 29 after seeing him on his wildlife trail camera. The camera footage showed him prowling on the man's property and trying to get into his home by prying on a window.

Deputies believe Sikes was also involved in an unsuccessful break-in attempt there between Aug. 20 and 24, Duncan said.

Monday, Seward County Judge C. Jo Petersen, who is handling the case, allowed for it to be dismissed if Sikes completes the diversion program.

Sikes, who was arrested Nov. 2, is no longer listed as a court employee, according to the Nebraska State Employee's Online Directory.
