PALO PINTO – A Palo Pinto Grand Jury passed out a total of eight indictments to four people in late July.
Of the indicted individuals, Casey Ray Glover, faces five charges, altogether, for a series of incidents in late May.
According to District Attorney Mike Burns, the Mineral Wells Police Department and Palo Pinto County Sheriff’s Department, led by Detective Neal Davis, were investigating a series of burglaries which they traced to a specific house in Mineral Wells. Glover and others were in the house when police surrounded it and obtained a search warrant.
Burns said when police returned with the search warrant, the house was set ablaze. Glover stands accused of starting the fire to escape, seemingly in vintage Soviet Russian fashion.
Burns said police chased and apprehended Glover and recovered the stolen property as well as an illegal sawed-off shotgun.
Later, in jail, Glover racked up his fifth charge when he allegedly assaulted a detention officer.
For his misdeeds, a Grand Jury indicted Glover for two counts of burglary of a habitation and one count, each, for arson, possession of a prohibited weapon and assaulting a public servant.
The following were also indicted on July 25:
•Josie Fujita Dalton - burglary of a building.
•Bobby Joe Faglie - unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.
•Jose Francisco Rivera - sexual assault of a child.
