Man charged in recent burglary also involved

A Rogers, Ark., woman is facing two felonies relating to an alleged robbery at gunpoint on Oct. 28 at a home on Highway 112 near Seligman.

Angela Goetz, 37, of Rogers, Ark., is charged with first-degree robbery and delivery of a controlled substance.

According to a probable cause statement filed by Deputy Thomas Bennett, with the Barry County Sheriff’s Office, the robbery occurred at a home in the Highway 112 home, and the drug charge stems from an incident on Farm Road 2200 near Cassville.

On Nov. 6 at about 3:15 p.m., Bennett was dispatched to a home in the 11,000 block of Farm Road 2200 in reference to a vehicle stolen from a victim at gunpoint on Oct. 28. The victim said she was riding in her vehicle with Goetz and Jerrid Johnson, 26, of Seligman, and said she wanted the vehicle back. Johnson allegedly pointed a gun at the victim and told her to get out of the vehicle, threatening her life if she said anything. The victim said Goetz pushed her after she got out of the vehicle, then Goetz and Johnson left in the car.

The victim said she did not report the incident out of fear for her and her family’s safety. On Nov. 6, the victim located her vehicle, and Johnson and Goetz were located inside the Farm Road 2200 home.

A syringe with a clear substance was located in the home, and Goetz allegedly possessed multiple items testing positive for methamphetamine. Scales and plastic baggies were also allegedly found in a search of the vehicle.

Goetz is being held in the Barry County jail on a cash-only bond of $50,000. She has been arraigned, and a disposition hearing is scheduled for Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. in the courtroom of Judge Robert Foulke. A motion for bond reduction has also been filed.

Johnson faces charges of first-degree robbery, delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a firearm in relation to the case. He is being held in the Barry County jail on a cash-only bond of $50,000. He has also been arraigned and has a disposition hearing scheduled for the same time as Goetz.

Johnson has an additional case pending, charged with first-degree burglary, armed criminal action and misdemeanor resisting arrest for a separate incident in Washburn on Sept. 23. In that case, he has a cash-only bond of $35,000. It is also set for a disposition hearing on Tuesday.
