A Berea resident was indicted by a Madison grand jury last week in connection with an Aug. 4 armed robbery.
Adam L. Anglin, 24, of Burchwood Drive in Berea, was indicted on second-degree robbery and first-degree persistent felony offender charges.
The persistent felony charge enhances both charges to Class B felonies, punishable by a maximum of 20 years in prison. If convicted for both, Anglin could serve a maximum of 40 years in prison.
He was arrested after police investigated a report of an assault and theft around 5:15 p.m. Aug. 4, according to a release from Richmond Police Chief Larry Brock.
The officers met with a man in the 100 block of Rice Court who told them he had been hit in the head by Anglin, which caused him to loss consciousness, the release stated.
The man said Anglin stole his wallet, $200 and a cell phone.
Officers found Anglin at 8 p.m. on Boggs Lane near the Madison County Health Department. The release states they recovered $192 from him, and further investigation confirmed he was the suspect named in the robbery report.
Anglin remains in the Madison County Detention Center under a $25,000 bond.
In other indictments:
• Joshua McWhorter Dillon, two counts of first-degree criminal abuse, a Class C felony. According to the indictment, Dillon subjected a 10- and 11-year-old to “torture and/or cruel punishment,” between Jan. 1, 2008, and March 15, 2012.
If convicted on both counts, Dillon could serve a maximum of 20 years in prison.
• Justin C. Woods, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony. If convicted, Woods could serve a maximum of five years in prison..
• Denton Bostwick, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor. If convicted, Bostwick could serve a maximum of six years in prison.
• Felisha Centers, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony, two counts of possession of paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor and operating a motor vehicle while impaired, jail/fine. If convicted, Centers could serve a maximum of seven years in prison.
• Adam W. Morton, tampering with physical evidence, a Class D felony and first-degree persistent felony offender, a Class B felony. The persistent felony offender charge enhances Morton's tampering charge to a Class B felony as well. If convicted on both charges, he could serve a maximum of 40 years in prison.
• Mitchell Peters, receiving stolen property, a Class D felony. If convicted, Peters could serve a maximum of five years in prison.
An indictment is a formal statement of charges and does not imply guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to proceed with prosecution. See Monday's Richmond Register for the conclusion of recent Madison County indictments.
