MOUNT VERNON — A Mount Vernon man and his mother were both indicted on similar felony charges in Knox County Court of Common Pleas on Tuesday.

Kenneth Hodge, 32, was indicted the third-degree felonies of burglary, grand theft and having weapons while under disability.

Tammy Hodge, 58, was indicted on charges of complicity in the commission of having weapons while under disability and obstructing justice, both third-degree felonies, stemming from the same incident.

The charges all originate from an incident March 1, 2019, where Kenneth Hodge allegedly entered a residence by force, stealth or deception on Columbus Road in Mount Vernon and allegedly took a Smith & Wesson firearm without permission. He was not allowed to have, carry or use a firearm after being convicted of felony drug trafficking in Franklin County in 2008.
