A Springfield man has been indicted on 18 felony counts involving break-ins and is being held on a $1 million bond.

The indictment obtained by the Springfield News-Sun alleges that investigators have connected Boyce to more than 10 burglaries in Clark County. The indictment says the alleged crimes took place between August 2016 through June of this year.

“We expect him to be connected with more burglaries and are still investigating,” Clark County Prosecutor Andy Wilson said.

Though he declined to give a total amount that was stolen, Wilson said it’s expected to be thousands of dollars worth of items. Boyce is suspected of stealing jewelry, the prosecutor said, and other valuables like expensive coin collections.

Boyce’s sister, Quiana Boyce, 34, and another woman, Victoria Nored, 27, were also arrested in connection with the burglaries. They each face a charge of receiving stolen property.

“Police expect to make more arrests,” Wilson said.

Ramon Boyce was arrested Friday, according to Wilson. Ramon Boyce was previously convicted of burglary charges in 2008 and served a prison sentence.
