A Parker County grand jury Thursday indicted three men accused of robbing a man at gunpoint in June.
Kriztofer David Ledbetter, 22, Jason Ray Salmon, 18, and Tyler Craig Williams, 19, were indicted on charges of aggravated robbery and two counts of theft of a firearm.
The resident of a home in the 400 block of Calhoun Bend Road near Azle reported to deputies that the men entered his home the day after a party and used the resident’s own handgun to rob him.
They reportedly took cash and rifles from the residence and attempted to take a television but were unable to remove it from the wall, according to the Parker County Sheriff’s Office.
Ledbetter admitted to splitting the money and guns with the other two suspects, according to the sheriff’s office.
A juvenile girl who had been at the party also made an accusation against the resident and asked Ledbetter to pick her up at the residence the morning of the alleged robbery, according to the sheriff’s office.
Another party-goer claimed the juvenile girl later demanded the television from the resident in exchange for not taking a complaint to authorities, according to the sheriff’s office.
Family burglar suspects
Three Springtown family members suspected of burglarizing and stealing from Parker County residents in June were indicted Thursday by a Parker County grand jury.
Bobby Dale Lewis II, 44; his brother, Jonathan Hardy Lewis, 32; and his son, Justin Ray Lewis, 19, were indicted on charges of burglary of a habitation and theft of metal amounting to less than $20,000, enhanced.
Parker County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to two calls around the afternoon of June 13. During the first, the caller reported a burglary in the 2100 block of Carter Road near Springtown. A second caller notified the sheriff’s office that three unknown men appeared to be taking car parts from a yard in the 7000 block of Hutcheson Hill Road.
