DOVER, N.H. - Two more Rochester men have been indicted in a brutal November home invasion in the city in which the suspects threatened the occupants of an Academy Street apartment with a gun and box cutters, apparently in an effort to steal drugs they thought were there.

Giovanni Angel Monroe, 35, of 15 Royal Crest MHP; Robbie Jablonski, 36, of 18 King St.; and Ryan Tiberio, 22, of 9 Western Ave Apt. 4 Dover, N.H., will now face trials in Strafford County Superior Court in connection with the alleged Nov. 17 robbery at 19A Academy St.

A fourth suspect, Cedric Ross, 34, of 157 Rochester Hills Road, Apt. 7, was indicted on armed robbery charges in connection with the case last month.

Jablonski is now charged with armed robbery for allegedly brandishing a gun during the home invasion; robbery for allegedly using a box cutter in commission of the crime and falsifying physical evidence for allegedly flushing drugs down a toilet and hiding drug paraphernalia. He faces up to 42 years in prison if convicted on all charges.

Monroe was formally charged with armed robbery for allegedly brandishing a gun, robbery for allegedly using a box cutter in commission of the home invasion; felony criminal threatening for allegedly holding a box cutter to an apartment occupant's throat; and being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon, having been convicted in June 2004 of witness tampering. He also faces charges of heroin possession from a Sept. 18 incident. Monroe faces up to 56 years in prison if convicted on all charges.

Tiberio, meanwhile, faces a lone charge of conspiracy to commit robbery for allegedly telling the other suspects there were 12 fingers of heroin at the Academy Street apartment and knowing a robbery was going to occur. He faces up to seven years in prison.

Police said they responded to the incident around 9:10 p.m. on Nov. 17 and learned that three males entered the residence, ordered the five people inside to the floor and took an undisclosed amount of money.

Based upon a brief investigation detectives went to the Riviera Motel where they conducted a search warrant on a room as part of the investigation and recovered evidence leading to the arrests.

It should be noted police have never released any information regarding any arrests of the apartment occupants in connection with the case.

The indictments were handed down on Thursday and released on Tuesday.

An indictment is not an indication of guilt, only that a grand jury has found sufficient evidence to move forward to trial.
