Four suspects charged in connection with several Whitley County burglaries were scheduled for their trial by jury Tuesday in Whitley County Circuit Court.

However, all those trials were continued until April 1.

Larry Brandon Shelton, 29, Eric Martin Shelton, 24, Joshua Tyler Croley, 26, and Timothy Edward Taylor, 33, all of Williamsburg, were arrested more than a year ago and now face charges connected to at least 10 different burglaries, netting property and jewelry estimated to be valued between $80,000 and $100,000.

All four were remanded back to the Whitley County Detention Center. According to jail records, Croley is under a $50,000 cash bond. Eric Shelton is under two $50,000 cash bonds. Larry Shelton has one cash bond of $50,000, however, other charges list him without bond. Taylor remains jailed without bond.

Larry Shelton was also indicted in Knox, Clark and Laurel counties for other burglaries. He was scheduled to face 10 trials Tuesday. Four of those trials involved second-degree burglary charges, and theft by unlawful taking. Three of the trials were also second-degree burglary, but the difference is the theft by unlawful taking charges accuse him over stealing more than $10,000. Two trials slated were second-degree burglary, and the last trial was for first-degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking charges.

Eric Shelton was slated for three trials Tuesday. One was for receiving stolen property under $10,000; the second was for second-degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking of more than $10,000; and the third was for second-degree burglary charges.

Taylor was scheduled for two trials. The first was for second-degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking; the second was also for second-degree burglary, this time with theft by unlawful taking of more than $10,000.

Croley was also slated for two trials Tuesday. The first was for second-degree burglary; the second was for first-degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking.
