GEORGETOWN — The Brown County Grand Jury met recently and handed down indictments to 20 individuals, including Brandon Lang, Christina Nichole Stacy, Samuel Stacy and Kenneth James Lunsford.

The investigation into the individuals was conducted by the Brown County Sheriff’s Office with help from the Ripley Police Department.

According to the BCSO and the bill of indictment from the Brown County Common Pleas Court, they allegedly stole money and property from numerous people to support their alleged drug habits.

As of press time, Lang, Lunsford, and Christina Stacy were behind bars at the Brown County Adult Detention Center. Samuel Stacy is still at-large, according to the BCSO.
