A 32-year-old Waxahachie woman has been indicted on a felony attempted aggravated kidnapping charge stemming from a Dec. 1 incident in the 300 block of Richmond St.
Julie Gaddy Martin also was indicted on a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon relating to the incident.
According to an arrest affidavit on file with the case, two teens were waiting on a friend and sitting in a vehicle outside of a residence, when an unknown female approached them, got into their vehicle and drew a weapon, telling the vehicle’s owner that “he was going to do what she said.”
The woman told the teen she wanted him to take her to Wyatt Street to buy some crack, according to the affidavit, which indicates he told her he couldn’t do that, at which time she began to plead with him.
An adult male resident in the house observed what was going on and walked out to the vehicle, with the woman telling the vehicle’s owner to say she was his girlfriend, according to the affidavit.
The teen told the adult male he didn’t know her, with the adult male telling her to leave, at which time the woman left on foot, according to the affidavit, which notes Martin was subsequently identified through a photo lineup.
Endangering a child
Angelica Villa Arreola, 33, and Gregorio Barajas Villa, 32, both of Ennis, were each indicted last week on two charges of endangering a child and possession of marijuana over 50 pounds.
The charges stem from Nov. 3, when sheriff’s deputies and Ennis police officers were attempting to serve a warrant at an address in Ferris, assistant district attorney Patrick Wilson said.
“While searching the residence, officers found 160 pounds of marijuana and several semi-automatic weapons,” he said, noting the drugs and weapons were easily accessible to two children living at the home.
Impersonating a public servant
Stacey Harold Hogan, 34, of Malone, Texas, was indicted on a charge of impersonating/exercising functions of a public servant, a third-degree felony.
According to an arrest affidavit relating to the Feb. 12 incident, Hogan was northbound on Interstate 35E in Ellis County when he attempted to pull over another motorist by displaying a flashing red/white light through his windshield and by motioning.
The other driver, an off-duty police officer with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in Waco, contacted authorities, according to the affidavit, with Glenn Heights officers able to locate and make contact with both vehicles, finding the light in the floorboard of Malone’s pickup.
Later, during an inventory of Malone’s vehicle, officers also found a gold, six-pointed star badge, according to the affidavit.
