-A A +A

Two Bonnieville residents, who pleaded guilty in LaRue County to the theft of lumber from an old barn, face similar charges in Hart County.

Justin C. Caswell, 29, and Nicole Oldham, 30, were indicted by a grand jury on charges of receiving stolen property and complicity. Caswell is also charged with being a persistent felony offender. They are accused of receiving barn lumber belonging to David McDowell, knowing it was stolen. The lumber had a value of more than $500 but less than $10,000.

Caswell and Oldham were sentenced to three years, probated, in November in LaRue County on charges of complicity, theft by unlawful taking and complicity, first-degree criminal mischief and complicity, and third-degree criminal mischief.

Also indicted by a grand jury are Jason Delaine Harris, 28, North Jackson Highway, Magnolia, for theft of a controlled substance, hydrocodone, and being a persistent felony offender; and Jacobi Caven, 23, Campbellsville Road, Hodgenville, for second degree assault; operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs; failure of nonowner to maintain required insurance; third-degree criminal mischief for damaging equipment belonging to SCRTCs; reckless driving; failure to wear a seatbelt; and for being a persistent felony offender.

The indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only. The person is innocent unless and until proven guilty.
