Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Eight of the 10 of the suspects arrested at a methamphetamine bust at two homes located near the intersection of County Road 650 West and United States 40 on Feb. 16 have had their cases reviewed by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office and been processed through the court system.

On Feb. 19, Clay County Prosecutor Lee Reberger appeared on behalf of the State of Indiana to present the following formal charges:

* Nicholas Murans, 27, Fishers, Ind., appeared by videoconference before Clay Superior Court Judge Blaine Akers to be formally charged with dealing in methamphetamine, unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, possession of methamphetamine, possession of chemical reagents of precursors with intent to manufacture a controlled substance and operating a vehicle while intoxicated. According to Clay County Justice Center officials, Murans remains incarcerated on a cash bond of $25,000 while awaiting a scheduled jury trial on July 14.

* Galen Boyll, 45, Brazil, appeared before Clay Circuit Judge Joseph Trout to be formally charged with dealing in methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, receiving stolen property, possession of chemical reagents of precursors with intent to manufacture a controlled substance and being a habitual offender.

Although no court dates have been set at this time, officials confirm that Boyll remains incarcerated on a cash bond of $25,000.

* Patti Luker, 37, Brazil, appeared before Akers to be formally charged with dealing in methamphetamine, possession of chemical reagents of precursors with intent to manufacture a controlled substance and visiting a common nuisance. Officials confirm that Luker remains incarcerated on a cash bond of $25,000 while awaiting a jury trial on July 14.

* Raymond Winn, 34, Brazil, appeared before Akers to be formally charged with dealing in methamphetamine, possession of chemical reagents of precursors with intent to manufacture a controlled substance, possession of paraphernalia and visiting a common nuisance. Officials confirm Winn remains incarcerated on a cash bond of $25,000 while awaiting a jury trial scheduled on July 21.

* Todd Bryan, 44, Terre Haute, appeared before Akers to be formally charged with dealing in methamphetamine, possession of chemical reagents of precursors with intent to manufacture a controlled substance and visiting a common nuisance. Officials confirm Bryan remains incarcerated on a cash bond of $25,000 awaiting a jury trial on July 21.

* Patricia Moore, 45, Terre Haute, appeared before Trout to be formally charged with possession of marijuana and visiting a common nuisance. No court dates have been set at this time in the case against Moore, who has since bonded out of jail.

* Johnny Manning, 35, Seelyville, appeared before Trout to be formally charged with operating a vehicle as an habitual traffic offender, two charges -- one misdemeanor, one felony--of carrying a handgun without a license and visiting a common nuisance. No court dates have been set in the case against Manning, who has bonded out of jail.

* Mark Scott, 43, Brazil, appeared before Akers to be formally charged with possession of methamphetamine and visiting a common nuisance. Scott has bonded out of jail to await his jury trial scheduled on June 16.

* Courtney Anderson, 18, Terre Haute, appeared before Trout to be formally charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of chemical reagents of precursors with intent to manufacture a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia. Although no court dates have been scheduled at this time, Anderson has bonded out of jail.

* William Grycza, 49, Terre Haute, had an initial hearing date set on April 7 by Akers for a formal charge of visiting a common nuisance because he was transferred to officials in Vigo County for two outstanding arrest warrants.

* Jenny Grycza, 47, Terre Haute, had an initial hearing date set on March 17 by Trout for a formal charge of visiting a common nuisance because she was transferred to officials in Vigo County for undisclosed charges.

Two of the suspects, Brazil residents Joe Brand, 47, and Michael Truax, 58, have yet to be formally charged.
