K-Mart Free-Wheelers in Friday's Ross County Grand Jury


The Ross County Grand Jury returned all 18 of their cases Friday, with three open.

In one case, two females were apparently surprised when they were caught with bags full of loot, riding motorized shopping carts, after hours inside the K-Mart. 

According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, shortly after midninght April 4th, police were called to an alarm inside the store on North Bridge Street.  They found 19-year-old Shakyra L. Silcott of Eastern Avenue, and a 12-year-old juvenile, who fled to the back door after they saw the officers...where they were apprehended. 

They had hidden from store staff inside until the store was closed - and then filled two duffel bags with toiletries, hygeine products, and bottled drinks - before free-wheeling around. 

As an adult, Silcott could get up to 12 months and a $2,500 fine. 

Two domestic violence cases remained open. 

According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, on April 22nd, the Sheriff's office was called on a couple walking along Massieville Road, fighting.  33-year-old Michael A. Stanley, Jr. admitted to officers that they were fighting over meth.  His wife said he had choked her, hit her in the face, and pushed her into a ditch. 

Because of Stanley's previous domestic violence conviction in Vinton County in 2010, he could get up to 18 months and a $5,000 fine. 

And on April 23rd, Chillicothe Police officers responded to a call at 254 Mechanic Street.  According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, the victim said she had been on the phone with a male friend when her on-and-off boyfriend 42-year-old Chad M. Dade threw her phone at the floor, pushed her out of her chair, grabbed her by the jaw and slammed her to the floor, then grabbed her by the neck and slammed her head against the wall. 

Because of Dade's domestic violence convictions in Lancaster in 1996 and Pickaway County in 2007, he could get up to five years and a $10,000 fine.
