Grand jurors return multiple indictments naming defendants in burglary, theft charges
BEEVILLE – Bee County grand jurors returned indictments on more than a dozen felony defendants when they met on July 16.
Those indicted included:
•Robert Jimenez Jr. on two counts that included burglary of a building, a state jail felony, and engaging in organized criminal activity, a third degree felony.
A Beeville Police Department investigator alleged that Jimenez, on Jan. 26, entered without permission a building owned by another man.
The second count of the indictment alleged that the defendant committed theft while in the building and that the burglary and theft were committed with the intent to “establish, maintain or participate in a combination or in the profits of a combination” who collaborated in carrying out the offenses.
If convicted of the third degree felony, Jimenez could be sentenced to up to 10 years in a state prison and fined $10,000.
A conviction could result in a two-year sentence to a state jail facility and a $10,000 fine.
His bond was set at $5,000 by District Judge Patrick Flanigan.
Jimenez also was named in a separate indictment on the same charges in connection with an incident that occurred on Feb. 1.
The second incident involved a different victim.
Another BPD officer made the allegation in that case, and Flanigan set bond on that indictment at $10,000.
•Murray Johnson on a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, a third degree felony.
According to a BPD officer, Johnson had a firearm in his possession on Dec. 15, 2013.
That incident was after the fifth anniversary of Johnson’s release from confinement on a Sept. 21, 2001, conviction on a felony charge of burglary of a habitation.
Johnson had the firearm somewhere other than his residence at the time of the alleged offense.
Bond was $20,000.
•Marcelino Treviño on a charge of evading arrest/detention with a motor vehicle, a third degree felony.
According to a Bee County Sheriff’s Office investigator, Treviño used a vehicle to flee from Deputy Taylor Clevenger during an incident on Aug. 14, 2013.
Clevenger was trying to detain or arrest the defendant at the time.
Bond was $1,000.
