He allegedly threatened man his mother had paid $35 to steal TV

A man who allegedly broke into a home on Georgetown Road, knocked down a 66-year-old man and threatened to kill everyone in the house was indicted by a Franklin County grand jury Wednesday.

Jamar Rancher, 21, is charged with second-degree burglary, second-degree assault, third-degree terroristic threatening, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and two counts of second-degree persistent felony offender.

Jamar Rancher’s mother, Maggie Rancher, gave Jason Dean $35 to steal a TV from Walmart for her, Commonwealth’s Attorney Larry Cleveland said.

Dean took the money, but told her the next day that he couldn’t do it and would give her the $35 back, Cleveland said.

“That did not satisfy Jamar Rancher,” Cleveland said.

Rancher allegedly went to Dean’s home at 5142 Georgetown Road Lot 51 on Sept. 8 and kicked in the door, which knocked Odell Farler, 66, to the ground and broke his hip, Cleveland said.

He then pulled out a gun and threatened to kill everyone in the house, Cleveland said.

Rancher has previously been convicted of second-degree robbery and first-degree wanton endangerment in 2010.
