A store robbery, several drug- and alcohol-related crimes and an aggravated assault/stalking charge all were included in indictments handed out by the January session of the Lamar County Grand Jury.

Rayla Jeanette McCurry, 43, of Paris, is charged with one count of second degree robbery and a count of theft less than $2,500 in conjunction with an alleged shoplifting attempt Jan. 7 in the 900 block of Clarksville St.

Store employees said they saw her concealing items inside her purse and then attempt to leave without paying, according to police reports. Police found that McCurry had at least two prior convictions for theft, so the charge was enhanced to a felony.
