MOUNT VERNON — A Mount Vernon man charged in a grand jury indictment allegedly tried to run from police in a golf cart after setting fire to a stolen truck and crashing a stolen car.

Jesse J. Ervin, 25, is charged with two counts of grand theft, arson, burglary, breaking and entering, failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer and theft. According to Knox County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney David Merrell, the charges stem from Oct. 6-7 and represent a “continuing course of conduct” that began in Knox County and ended in Delaware County.
