An Erath County grand jury indicted 12 individuals Thursday including a teenager for burglary of a habitation, a second-degree felony, and burglary of a building, a state jail felony.

Michael Ramsey, 18, was arrested in June after breaking into his grandparent’s barn on CR 567 and stealing gasoline and personal information investigators believe he planned to sell.

Ramsey’s grandparents called authorities to report the theft in progress.

“When deputies arrived on scene they found the suspect walking down the road after ditching the stolen items,” Sgt. Investigator Ben Moore told the E-T at the time of Ramsey’s arrest. “We already had a warrant out for his arrest from the week before when he broke into his grandparent’s home so he was immediately taken into custody.”

Pearl, a bloodhound, arrived on scene a short time later to help investigators link Ramsey to the scene of the crime.

“Pearl picked up (Ramsey’s) scent quickly from the site of the arrest to where the offense occurred,” Moore said. “She also alerted on the stolen property, which was hidden under some brush.”

Ramsey remains in the Erath County Jail held on a $20,000 bond.
