SIDNEY — The man accused of robbing a man at an ATM in March was indicted by a Shelby County Grand Jury on Thursday morning on more charges.

Jakob JM Young, 21, at large, was indicted on two counts of trafficking in drugs, felonies of the fourth-degree, one count of breaking and entering, a felony of the fifth-degree, and three counts of burglary, felonies of the third-degree.

According to court records, the first count reads: “On or about March 3, 2016, … he knowingly prepared for transport and distribution 26 capsules of heroin for distribution, knowing it was intended for sale or resale, when the amount of heroin exceeds 10 unit doses but is less than 50 unit doses.”

The second count points to the same date, but accuses him of preparing 18 capsules of cocaine for transport and distribution.

The breaking and entering charge claims on or about March 4, “he by force, stealth or deception, trespassed in a detached garage at 227 Helen Court, Sidney, in order to commit a theft offense.”

The burglary charges all point to him knowingly trespassing into residences and committing theft offenses on various days in March. The addresses include homes on Oak Avenue, Forest Street and Grove Street, all in Sidney.

At the beginning of April, Young was indicted on one count of aggravated robbery, a felony of the first degree. Young allegedly robbed Randy Evans, 46, of Piqua, with a knife while Evans was making a withdrawal from an ATM machine at the US Bank at 1222 Wapakoneta Ave.

He has pleaded not-guilty in the robbery case and a pre-trial hearing is scheduled for Monday. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday, May 5, at 10 a.m. in the new case against him. Young is being held in the Shelby County Jail.
