Grand jury indicts two men in home invasion, theft

RICHMOND — Two Richmond men were indicted Wednesday by a Madison grand jury in connection with a May home invasion.

Pernell Evans, 48, and Jason W. Osborne, 33, were both indicted on charges of first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary.

Osborne also was indicted on charges of first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), first-degree possession of a controlled substance (heroin), tampering with physical evidence, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest.

Osborne and Evans are accused of gaining entry May 17 into a Hampton Way apartment by forcing open a back door, according to a Richmond Police Department report.

Once they were inside the home, they took a 50-inch television, the report stated.

Osborne allegedly had a tire iron, and he punched the resident, William Kelly, several times in the face with his fist.

Officers who responded to the incident reported seeing Osborne and Evans running from the apartment and detained them.

The officer searched the vehicle the men were riding in and reported finding several syringes, burnt aluminum foil, spoons with white powder residue and a bag of what police suspected was heroin, according to the release.

Osborne also is alleged to have discarded a small bag of suspected methamphetamine after he was detained.

Evans was released May 30 from the Madison County Detention Center, but Osborne remains in the jail.

Other indictments handed down last week:

• Gregory S. Beeler, 48, second-degree assault.

• Delieto A. Jones, 26, convicted felon in possession of a handgun, tampering with physical evidence, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (cocaine), possession of drug paraphernalia (digital scale), attempt to tamper with physical evidence, second-degree persistent felony offender.

• Coby G. Chasteen, 30, receiving stolen property and second-degree persistent felony offender.

• Kayla S. Grubb, 23, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (oxycodone) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

• Brenda Hamm, 24, two counts of first-degree possession of a controlled substance (cocaine and oxymorphone).

• Karen Michelle Tackett, 37, first-degree bail jumping.

• William A. Burns, 26, first-degree bail jumping.

• Katrina S. Johnson, 27, first-degree bail jumping.

• Priscilla Ann Miller, 29, first-degree promoting contraband (possessing suboxone in the Madison County Detention Center.)

• Rebecca J. Kalman, 37, first-degree bail jumping.

• Darryl Ballard, trafficking in marijuana (more than 5 pounds).

• Chad Allen, fraudulent use of a credit card and second-degree persistent felony offender.

• Robert Harold Roberts, 50, two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (oxycodone) and first-degree persistent felony offender.

• Kenneth Burnam Cobb, 29, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (oxycodone).

Charges against the following people were dismissed without prejudice:

• Raymond L. Crutcher, 25

• Shannon D. Osbourne, 30

• Amy L. Wylie, 36

• Kayla S. Grubb, 23

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.
