NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches County grand jury indicted a 37-year-old man on an aggravated robbery charge in connection to allegations that he and other suspects were involved in a home-invasion robbery that occurred in late December of 2015.
Edwin Jermaine Griffin, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail. He was indicted on a first-degree felony aggravated robbery charge.
According to the Nacogdoches Police Department's daily activity report, the home-invasion robbery occurred at a house in the 2600 block of Lampkin Street in the early morning hours of Dec. 23, 2015. The complainant told police that unknown suspects forced their way into his home and took items at gunpoint.
There were minor injuries reported, the activity report stated.
Griffin was identified after a lengthy investigation and arrested. The case is still under investigation.
The Nacogdoches County grand jury also indicted Christopher Daniel Parker, 33, and Laura Lean Parker, 29, both of Nacogdoches. They were both indicted on a state-jail felony cruelty to non-livestock animal charges.
According to an arrest affidavit, the sheriff's office received a report on Jan. 29 that a pit bull dog was severely malnourished on the 1100 block of County Road 659.
Deputies learned Parker and his wife owned the dog and were able to seize the dog. According to the affidavit, the wife said the dog was skinny because she was old and had no teeth.
The dog was so emaciated that she could not hold her own weight.
According to the affidavit, an animal control officer told a deputy that she examined the dog and determined with an x-ray there was absolutely no food in her stomach. A veterinarian said the dog was only four years old and had poor health due to malnutrition. The vet also said the dog had a severe case of intestinal worms and heartworms.
Deputies obtained a warrant for Parker's arrest on Feb. 11.
