Grand jury indicts man accused of duct-taping woman to pole

RICHMOND — A man who was accused in November of duct-taping a woman to a pole for nine hours was indicted last week by a Madison grand jury.

James D. Foster, 38, of Hill Street, was indicted on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, fourth-degree assault, second-degree unlawful imprisonment, possession of drug paraphernalia and second-degree persistent felony offender.

Richmond police were sent to the area of Hill and East Irvine streets at 6:35 p.m. Nov. 5 to meet with a woman who reported being held against her will at Foster’s home, according to an RPD news release.

The woman said she was visiting Hill’s home when he accused her of stealing the meth he was making.

Foster duct-taped the woman’s hands to a pole and also taped her mouth shut, according to the release.

The woman said Foster struck her repeatedly about the head and eyes. The woman was duct-taped to the pole at 9 a.m. and released sometime around 6 p.m., according to the release.

Officers searched Foster’s residence and found several items of evidence connected to the reported crime, the release stated.

Officers also found coffee filters, lithium batteries, ammonia, Liquid Fire drain cleaner and other materials often connected with the manufacture of methamphetamine, the release stated.

Foster was arrested and taken to the Madison County Detention Center. He was still listed as an inmate Wednesday afternoon.

Because Foster has been previously convicted of a felony, the manufacturing meth charge can be treated as a Class A felony, which carries a sentencing range of 20 years to life in prison.

Other indictments:

• Junius D. Randle Jr., third-degree assault, second-degree disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, alcohol intoxication.

• William Barker, trafficking in marijuana (more than 8 ounces), second-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia.

• Steven Arthur Napier and Amanda L. Barnes two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. Napier also was indicted on charges of tampering with physical evidence and first-degree persistent felony offender. Barnes also was indicted on a charge of possession of marijuana.

• Ricky L. Smith Jr., Robert Bender, Robert Blake Hobson and Nicole A. Tingle, conspiracy to traffic in marijuana (more than 8 ounces). Smith, Hobson and Tingle also were indicted on one charge each of possession of drug paraphernalia.

• Jeffery Scott Back, two counts of receiving stolen property (less than $10,000) and third-degree possession of a controlled substance.

• Gregory Scott Anglin, first-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

• Timothy Cloyd Tudor, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, third-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana.

• Christopher Delafuente, first-degree possession of a controlled substance and aggravated operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

• Curtis D. Collins, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, operating a motor vehicle on a suspended license, failure to give signal, failure to wear seat belt.

• Carl L. Anderson and Shamika M. Flood, three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. Anderson also received three counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, while Flood received one count. Anderson was indicted on a charge of trafficking in marijuana (less than 8 ounces).

• Adam Baker, trafficking in marijuana (less than 8 ounces).

An indictment is a formal statement of charges and does not imply guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to prosecute.
