PIKEVILLE, Ky. - A Pike County grand jury on Monday indicted a Williamson man and Kentucky woman for their alleged roles in receiving a stolen luxury car. They were among 13 others indicted this week.

Tyrone Davis, 36, of Williamson, and Melissa Williamson, 40, of Sidney, Ky., were each indicted on one count of receiving stolen property.

According to the unsealed indictment, Davis and Williamson are accused of "knowingly receiving, retaining, or disposing" of a Cadillac SRX taken from Tim Short Chevrolet in South Williamson. The luxury SUV was taken from the lot on Nov. 9 and was valued at more than $10,000, according to the indictment.

An indictment is not an indication a person is guilty of a crime. It only means enough probably cause exists to warrant a jury trial.

Allen, 43, of Martin, Ky., theft by deception, theft by unlawful taking and being a persistent felony offender; Chris Damron, Elkhorn City, Ky., theft by unlawful taking; Gregory Blake Hackney, 50, of Steele, Ky., operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicants, wanton endangerment and fourth-degree assault.
