Second man sentenced in home invasion

Brian Lee Lindsay was sentenced on Aug. 18 to 78 months in prison in three cases, including a June 14 home invasion robbery.

He is the second of four accused in the case to be sentenced.

In a plea agreement, Lindsay pleaded no contest to first-degree burglary and first-degree aggravated theft. Dismissed were charges of first-degree robbery, two counts of second-degree robbery, first-degree theft and third-degree theft.

Linn County Circuit Court Judge David E. Delsman sentenced Lindsay to 40 months in prison for the burglary and 13 months for the aggravated theft. He also will remain in post-prison supervision for 36 months following his release. He was fined a total of $800 in all three cases.

In another case, he was sentenced to 13 months in prison for escape after pleading no contest. A charge of fourth-degree assault was dismissed. He had been accused of assaulting a Sweet Home police officer on Jan. 18.

In a third case, he was sentenced to 12 months in prison for third-degree robbery in a June 6 incident. Charges of fourth-degree assault and second-degree theft were dismissed.

In the home invasion case, Jacob Salvador faces charges of first-degree burglary, first-degree aggravated theft, first-degree robbery, two counts of second-degree robbery, first-degree theft and third-degree theft. Sirena Patricio is charged with first-degree theft and first-degree aggravated theft. Marco Ashe was sentenced to 70 months in prison after entering a plea agreement in the case.

The charges stem from a June 14 incident when police responded to the 4900 block of Mimosa Circle. Three men at the residence reported that three other men had entered the residence and held one of the victims at knife point while removing a small safe containing $10,000 in cash from the home. No victims were injured.

Lebanon police arrested Salvador first after the home invasion on an unrelated Sweet Home warrant later that day. Lindsay was arrested after police executed a search warrant off Ridgeway Road on June 15. Lebanon police located and arrested Ashe, and Lebanon police arrested Patricio on June 19.

Salvador remains lodged at Linn County Jail. Salvador was scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 8 for arraignment.

Patricio appears in court next on Sept. 11 for arraignment.

Dylan James Johnston

Dylan James Johnston of Albany was sentenced in Linn County Circuit Court on Aug. 18 to 20 months in prison for first-degree criminal mistreatment.

Charges of third-degree assault, second-degree assault and failure to report as a sex offender were dismissed in a plea agreement.

Johnston was arrested after a 2-year-old girl was injured on Nov. 5, 2012 at her home in Mountain Shadows Trailer Park, 1530 Tamarack St.

Medics took the girl to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland with bleeding in the brain after she was injured by a relative’s boyfriend.

Sweet Home police arrested Johnston on Nov. 7 following an investigation.

The child’s mother reported that she had gone to the store with her sister, leaving the child and two other small children in the custody of her sister’s boyfriend, Johnston, said retired Police Chief Bob Burford following the incident. When the women returned, Johnston had told them he heard a noise in the bedroom and had found the girl unresponsive on the floor. A 3-year-old was standing nearby. He did not summon medics and waited for the child’s mother to return. She called for medics.

Medics alerted police to a possible child abuse case.
