Chase nets indictment of T’dale pair

CAMERON—Two Thorndale residents arrested in May in connection with an FM 908 break-in and subsequent chase were indicted Thursday by a Milam County Grand Jury.

Lonny Arthur Green, 49, and 37- year-old Pepper Sue Bowsher were indicted for evading arrest with a motor vehicle and burglary of a habitation, enhanced to first degree felony.

On May 27, a homeowner caught two persons in the act of burglarizing a residence and sheriff’s deputies chased a vehicle loaded with furniture to the County 428 Bridge over the San Gabriel River. Deputies said the pickup was damaged at the bridge and its occupants fled, a male leaping over the bridge railing into the river and a female running alongside the brush in the river bottom.

Green was arrested the next day while walking alongside a roadway on the way to turn himself in. Bowsher turned herself in the next week.
