Friday's Ross County Grand Jury Indictments

The Ross County Grand Jury returned all 22 cases presented to them, with only two open.

One was where 39-year-old Tyrance M. Hayes of Columbus was found asleep at the wheel...repeatedly. 

At about 2am February 24th he was reported passed out at the gas pumps at the BP on High Street.  But a witness reported he had previously passed out, on State Route 104 while waiting for the traffic light at US 35...for three cycles of the light. 

He failed sobriety tests and was arrested for OVI.  A loaded 40-caliber handgun on his car floor added a charge of improperly handling a firearm in a motor vehicle.  And previous convictions for felony assault in 2008 and posession of cocaine in 1999 in Montgomery County, added having a weapon under disability. 

He could get up to a total of 6 1/2 months and $13,500 in fines. 

Another was where a woman was picking up her great-grandson at his mother's house at 854 Orange Street March 9th.  But later she found the mother, 26-year-old Abigail M. Fogel, in the back of her car with her purse. 

Credit cards and a change purse were missing from it, which were found in the houshold trash after a search warrant was executed. 

Fogel was indicted for theft, and theft from a person in a protected class.  Both are fifth degree felonies because credit cards were stolen, and the victim was "elderly by statute." 

They could fetch her up to 12 months and a $2,500 fine.
