Five people were indicted by a Johnson County grand jury for allegedly being involved in the Apr. 8 burglary of one of the suspects' grandfather.

Jessica Johnson, 32, of Williamsport, Melessa Robinson, 32, of Prestonsburg, and Charles Brian Ward, 39, of West Van Lear, were indicted on a charge of first-degree burglary in complicity with Devon Baldwin, 25, of East Point.

The group, the indictment alleges, were involved in a scheme in which Ward called Baldwin's grandfather and advised him Baldwin was in intensive care at Highlands Regional Medical Center so that Ward and Baldwin could burglarize Baldwin's grandfather's home.

According to the citation, the owner of the residence found numerous firearms missing from the house when he returned home.

Stacy L. Castle, 41, of Thealka, was indicted on a charge of receiving stolen property (firearm) for allegedly being in possession of a Colt .22 caliber handgun that was taken from Baldwin's grandfather's residence.

Baldwin, who was already incarcerated at the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center when Trooper Dustin Thompson made contact with him on Apr. 19, stated that Robinson was involved in the burglary, court document said.

When Thompson and a fellow trooper made contact with Robinson, she advised that Baldwin and another man had ridden with her in her vehicle to Baldwin's grandfather's residence and that the trio had then called the man to advise him that he needed to go to HRMC to see Baldwin, according to the citation, before Baldwin and the other man made entry into the house and took the firearms, as well as a "large bag of coins."

According to Robinson's citation, she had borrowed a vehicle in order to commit the crime and allowed someone else to drive it. Robinson also stated that she sold numerous firearms for drugs and money to an individual in Martin County.

According to the citation for Ward's arrest, Baldwin's grandfather supplied Thompson with the number of the cell phone from which he had received the call that led to the burglary, and this number matched Ward's cell phone. Baldwin, Robinson and Johnson all corroborated that Ward had made the call to Baldwin's grandfather, but Ward told Thompson that Baldwin had made the call himself.  Ward told Thompson that he never entered the residence, but had carried the bag of coins from the residence.

According to the citation, Johnson and Robinson told Thompson that Ward had entered the residence and assisted with carrying out the firearms.

After speaking with Robinson, the citation said, Thompson again spoke with Baldwin, who corroborated the statement Robinson had given, and added that he was "very sorry for what he had done," and that he "wanted to make right what he done wrong."

Robinson and Ward were also indicted on a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and Robinson was charged as second-degree persistent felony offender.

Baldwin, Johnson and Ward are currently lodged in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center, while Robinson was released May 8 and Castle has not been arrested in relation to this case. According to court records, a hearing is scheduled for July 17 in the case.
