Man indicted in theft of car

RICHMOND — A Madison grand jury indicted a Richmond man Wednesday on a charge of stealing a car from a Mississippi car lot.

Edward O. Wardle, 49, was charged with receiving stolen property (less than $10,000) and second-degree escape.

The police caught up with Wardle on March 14 in the Kroger parking lot after receiving a report that a stolen vehicle was in the area, according to an RPD report.

The officer determined the Kentucky license plate on the car did not match the registered description of the vehicle.

The Saturn had been taken from the Mississippi car lot the day before, according to the report.

Wardle left the vehicle while the officer was checking it out, but he was detained a short time later, the RPD reported.

Other indictments issued Wednesday

• Christie Crowe, two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, theft by unlawful taking.

• Brooke Feltner, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia.

• William H. Taylor, second-degree escape, tampering with a prisoner monitoring device, second-degree criminal mischief.

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.
