May 18th Ross County Grand Jury

The Ross County Grand Jury returned all 18 of their cases Friday, with 6 felonies open. 

In one, an accused car thief was caught near the abandoned car. 

According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, a 2013 Honda "Fit" was reported stolen from Albright Mill Road sometime between 5am April 20th, and 5pm 21st. 

Then at about 6:41pm the 'smart car' was found abandoned in a driveway on Marietta Road.  An officer responded to a report of a suspicious person, and arrested 32-year-old Jennifer Powell of Chillicothe...who just happened to have the keys to the car. 

For an indictment of recieving stolen property, Powell could get up to 18 months and $5,000 in fines. 

In another, dusty money led to a drug arrest. 

According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, a Chillicothe Police officer was called by the Adult Parole Authority to a situation at 391 1/2 East Second Street, February 1st. 

There, 20-year-old Laroy Robinson II of Columbus refused to take his hands out of his pockets, saying he wanted to remove the "weed" from them.  But the officer instead found two $20 bills that dusted the officer with white powder when they were removed, though he was not injured.  

It tested positive for cocaine, and pills found on Robinson tested as oxycodone. 

For indictments of aggravated possession of drugs, and possession of cocaine, he could get up to one year and $2,500 in fines.
