A Fairview man was arrested July 8 on felony daytime burglary and grand larceny charges.
According to the criminal complaint filed at Marion County Magistrate Court, the resident of 102 Jarvis Lane, Fairview, said someone had broken into her bedroom at that address and stolen $10,000 in cash, coins and jewelry.
Investigating officer Chief E. Triplett determined that Randy Lee Yoders, 23, of that address, and a 14-year-old youth had broken into the bedroom and stolen $1,800 in currency; $2,050 in coins; and $7,200 in jewelry “by the confession of one of the subjects.”
If convicted, Yoders faces one to 10 years in a state correctional facility, or up to one year in jail and a $2,500 fine.
On July 11, Nichole Suzanne Thompson, 40, of the same address, was arrested for felony child neglect resulting in serious injury and felony malicious wounding.
According to the criminal complaint, Thompson struck her minor daughter “in the head with a metal detector, causing the requirement of medical attention.” The daughter was taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital by EMS and treated for head injuries.
The complaint also states that Thompson exited the residence and “pulled a handgun on Randy Yoders and told him she would blow him away.”
