WAXAHACHIE — Midlothian resident Royce Lee Ostrander, 31, was one of 42 indictments that came down from the Ellis County Grand Jury on Wednesday. Ostrander was indicted on burglary of a habitation and possession of a controlled substance — less than one gram after the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office arrest on Aug. 16.

According to the burglary of a habitation indictment, on Aug. 4 Ostrander allegedly "did then and there, with the intent to commit theft, entered a habitation without the effective consent of the owner." In possession of a controlled substance indictment, Ostrander allegedly on May 25 did "then and there intentionally or knowing possess" a controlled substance, namely methamphetamine, amounting to less than one gram.

The Daily Light previously reported that on Aug. 9, deputies responded to the report of an armed robbery at a residence on Farm-to-Market Road 876, where two male suspects fled the scene. The second suspect, later identified as Ostrander, was able to elude law enforcement officers. Ostrander was taken into custody 12 days later. Members of the U.S. Marshal’s Office Fugitive Task Force took Ostrander into custody at 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 16 in DeSoto. Ostrander's accomplice during the Aug. 4 burglary, Jack Dewayne Flanery, was arrested by law enforcement on Aug. 4 and was later indicted on three charges of aggravated robbery on Oct. 26.

According to online records from the Ellis County District Clerk Office, Ostrander and Flanery’s arraignment is set for Jan. 3, 2017, in the 443rd Judicial District Court. Janet Traylor has been appointed as Ostrander’s attorney, and Fehler Damon has been appointed as Flanery’s attorney.

Both Ostrander and Flanery remained in custody at the Wayne McCollum Detention Center as of press time. Ostrander has bonds totaling $520,000, and Flanery has bonds totaling $1.1 million.
