Young indicted for criminal attempt to commit murder

1-29-2014 —     The man that Monticello Police have been looking for in regard to an 

alleged shooting incident has been indicted by the Wayne County Grand 

Jury.

    The grand jury met on Tuesday, January 21 and returned an indictment 

against MacArthur Douglas Young, also known as John Young, charging 

him with criminal attempt to commit murder, wanton endangerment first 

degree and persistent felony offender second degree.

    The indictment stems from an incident on December 19, when officials 

allege that Young was involved in a plan that would culminate in the 

murder of an individual.

    The indictment also alleges that Young fired a rifle at individuals 

in that same incident.

    The Monticello Police Department issued a bulletin last month 

seeking information on the whereabouts of Young, and he has still not 

been apprehended.

    Anyone with information should contact the police department.

    Three other individuals were also indicted in connection with that 

same incident. Terry L. Lowe and Bobby Kay Coomer, Jr. were indicted 

for complicity to attempted murder for allegedly conspiring with 

Young. Jamie Sweet was indicted for hindering apprehension.

    Lowe was additionally charged with persistent felony offender.

    Following are other indictments returned by the grand jury last week.

    • Brian W. Atkinson was indicted for two counts of trafficking in a 

controlled substance first degree, two counts of manufacturing 

methamphetamine and persistent felony offender second degree.

    • Charles Martin was indicted for two counts of trafficking in a 

controlled substance first degree, trafficking in a controlled 

substance second degree and trafficking in a controlled substance 

third degree.

    • Travis Brown was indicted for trafficking in a controlled 

substance first degree.

    • Charlie Garner was indicted for trafficking in a controlled 

substance first degree.

    • Larry Dale Upchurch was indicted for trafficking in a controlled 

substance first degree.

    • Stephany Hancock was indicted for two counts of trafficking in a 

controlled substance first degree.

    • Stephanie Miller was indicted for three counts of trafficking in a 

controlled substance first degree.

    • Cecil Baker was indicted for two counts of trafficking in a 

controlled substance first degree.

    • Heather Moreland was indicted for flagrant non-support and 

persistent felony offender first degree.

    • Michael Carroll was indicted for manufacturing methamphetamine, 

unlawful imprisonment, fleeing and evading police first degree, 

possession of drug paraphernalia and persistent felony offender 

second degree.

    Readers are reminded that grand jury indictments do not indicate 

guilt, only that further action is necessary in a court case.

    Indictments are public record in the Wayne Circuit Clerk's Office.
