According to the indictment, the pair did knowingly enter or remain unlawfully in a building of Edward Lavon Smith, with intent to commit a crime of theft of property in violation of the state’s burglary statute.

The third count shows that Piland “did intentionally receive, retain, or dispose of stolen property, band saw and/or screwdriver and/or circular saw, the property of Edward Lavon Smith.” The property was valued in excess of $500 but not more than $1,499.

The indictment says that Piland know that the property was stolen or had reasonable grounds to believe it was stolen and did not have intent to restore it to its owner.

Bond was set at $100,000 each in the indictment.
