Grand jury indicts man charged with breaking into smoke shop

By CHRISTIN COYNE

A Parker County grand jury last week indicted a man accused of breaking into a Weatherford smoke shop in December and stealing cigarettes.

Ross Wade Hogans, 22, was indicted on a charge of burglary of a building, a state jail felony.

He was accused of a break-in at Christy’s Smoke Shop on Dec. 30. Thirty cartons of cigarettes were reported missing by the owner.

Police charged Hogans in the burglary after receiving a tip via Crime Stoppers.

Hogans was arrested by Hudson Oaks police in February after, police say, Hogans attempted to sneak a flat screen television out of Walmart without paying for it. He and two other suspects in the shoplifting incident were arrested after a short pursuit.
