MONTCALM (WVVA) - A pair of Mercer County residents face multiple charges after being arrested following a burglary in the Montcalm area Wednesday night.

Justin Matthew Havens, 28, of Bluefield and Ronald T. Williams, 29, of Montcalm, were arrested following a home invasion on Sandlick Road in which approximately $1,000 of jewelry was taken.

Police were able to locate the two based on the description and tag number of the vehicle they left the scene in -- a white Pontiac Grand Prix.

According to the criminal complaint on the incident, the suspects admitted to conspiring to break into the residence, and also admitted to staging an armed robbery in the Montcalm area weeks earlier.

On Sept. 26, according to the criminal complaint, Havens allegedly set up a meeting with a woman near Montcalm Elementary baseball field to buy drugs, with a plan in place for Williams to show up, wearing a mask, and rob both Havens and the woman of cash and drugs.

Afterwards, Havens and Williams allegedly met up and split the cash and pills.

Both suspects face charges of burglary, conspiracy and grand larceny in connection with the Oct. 17 incident, and charges of armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery in connection with the Sept. 26 incident.

Both are being held at Southern Regional Jail on $100,000 bond.

Havens has served as an assistant coach at Montcalm High School. School officials said Friday he is no longer coaching at the school.

Dr. Deborah Akers says Havens is currently not allowed on school grounds. His employment status will be determined at the next Board of Education meeting, scheduled for Tuesday.
