MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Four people charged with aggravated robbery in a January home invasion and two teens facing aggravated robbery charges in a foiled carjacking were indicted Tuesday by a Berkeley County grand jury.
Evan Sears, 20, of 605 State Circle, Martinsburg, is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, possession with intent to deliver cocaine and possession of marijuana in connection with a Jan. 9 robbery at a Martinsburg apartment.
According to court documents, three men walked into Samuel Pennington's apartment at 489 Porter Ave., at about 8:40 p.m. One of the men said they were in the wrong apartment and they left.
Ten minutes later, the men came in through the back door and demanded money from Pennington and his guest, Timothy Stotler. The three men left with wallets, cash and video game systems.
