Alicia Noel Tindle of Stone Mountain,  was sentenced in Rome this week to 20 years, to serve five in prison, after pleading guilty to burglary and theft by receiving charges.

Authorities said that Tindle served as a group’s lookout person as they invaded a home in the Stonebridge Community.


Adrian Delloyd Mitchell, 38 of Covington, pleaded guilty this week to being part of an armed robbery in the Stonebridge community in July 2015.  Court documents state that Mitchell pleaded guilty to theft by receiving stolen property and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Mitchell was sentenced to 10 years in prison and an additional 10 years on probation. He also received a $1,000 fine.

Mitchell was the third of four people arrested in the case to be sentenced.  Reports said that he and 24-year-old Alicia Noel Tindle of Stone Mountain, stood out side the home while the robbery occurred.

Tindle’s case is still pending.
