Bond was set at $5,000 cash only upon condition of no contact with the alleged victim’s property.
Shelton and Jana R. Ballard (1980), also of Glendale, were indicted on charges of second-degree burglary and complicity. They allegedly entered a residence with the intent to commit a crime on or about July 30, 2012.
Kentucky State Police investigated.
Bond was set at $9,500 cash only for each upon condition they have no contact with the alleged victim or each other.
They will be arraigned April 1 in LaRue Circuit Court.
