One of the co-conspirators in a Grass Valley Home Invasion Robbery , 18 year old Devan Thomas, pleaded out to Conspiracy to Commit Residential Burglary yesterday (Thursday) which Assistant District Attorney Anna Ferguson explains is a strike and will expose him to potential prison.
Ferguson says Thomas’ participation in the crime was calling his co-conspirators and confirming the victim was home on December 6th, the day of the home invasion and robbery. Thomas did not go into the victims house and did not participate in injuring the victim directly.
There are still 4 co-defendants left, Tyler Leal, and Michael Wallace., who are 17, and Elliott Roberts and Billy Mecredy who are 18. Ferguson says the case is moving forward slowly.
All four co-defendants remain in custody. Ferguson says the victim who is in his mid 70′s had a recent surgery but still can’t see in the eye that was hit with a blunt object during the home invasion robbery.
