A 66-year-old man was injured after a man wielding a gun broke into his home and knocked him to the ground, according to a release by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.
Jamar E. Rancher, 21 – who showed up at the home with his mother, Maggie Rancher – allegedly kicked in the door at 5142 Georgetown Road Lot 51 Saturday and knocked Odell Farler to the ground, the release says.
Farler may have broken his hip.
Jamar Rancher also destroyed property in the home, waved a gun and threatened to kill everyone inside, the release said.
Rancher also assaulted Farler’s grandson, Jason Dean, during the incident, according to the news release.
Dean told the sheriff’s office that Maggie Rancher gave him $35 to steal a TV from Walmart.
He said he called Maggie Rancher back and said he couldn’t do it and would return her money the next day. About an hour later, Maggie Rancher and her son came to Farler’s door looking for Dean, according to the release.
Farler’s granddaughter, Destiny Farler, said that during the incident, Maggie Rancher broke the windows of Farler’s van with a hammer.
Melton said Maggie Rancher may be charged but isn’t yet because the incident didn’t occur in an officer’s presence.
“The deputy’s still doing the investigation on it, so I don’t know if he will take out a warrant or summons on her or if she’ll be indicted for conspiracy with her son,” Melton told The State Journal.
Jamar Rancher faces charges of second-degree burglary, second-degree assault and second-degree terroristic threatening. He’s in Franklin County Regional Jail on a $50,000 cash bond.
