INDEPENDENCE – A Grayson County Circuit Court grand jury met Jan. 26 and handed down indictments against 24 suspects on drug violations, burglary and other charges.
Among those indicted were two men charged in December 2017 with breaking and entering at different locations in Grayson County and Independence.
William Loggins, 30, of Piney Creek, N.C., was indicted on seven charges, including felonious damage to property, unauthorized use of vehicle, attempted grand larceny, attempted statutory burglary, statutory burglary, grand larceny and conspiracy to commit statutory burglary.
Taylor Tower, 31, of Fries, was indicted on six charges, including unauthorized use of a vehicle, attempted grand larceny, two counts of attempted statutory burglary, grand larceny and conspiracy to commit statutory burglary.
Last month, deputies responded to reports of break-ins at a summer home on Pleasant Grove Road in Independence, an outbuilding on Grayson Parkway in the Baywood community and a home in the Grinder’s Mill area.
According to a police report, deputies found that stolen items matched with an inventory list of items recovered from a vehicle that crashed Dec. 6 near the intersection of Grinder’s Mill Road and Englewood Road. The vehicle was abandoned and still running, but Tower and Loggins were found in a wooded area nearby and arrested.
