Ten indicted by Grand Jury

The Brown County Grand Jury met recently and handed down indictments to 10 individuals, including Christopher Cole Powers.

Powers, 35, of Lynchburg, was charged with two counts of burglary, a second-degree felony and two counts of petty theft, a first-degree misdemeanor, according to his Bill of Indictment from the Brown County Court of Common Pleas.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed in the Brown County Municipal Court, Powers assisted in a pair of burglaries, both in Mt. Orab. After an eye witness provided deputies with the Brown County Sheriff’s Office a description of Powers’ car on June 24, he was arrested two days later.

A BCSO deputy spotted the vehicle, the affidavit states, and ran the licence plate tags, which found they were expired. After performing a traffic stop, the initial officer arrived at the scene and both he and Powers went back to the BCSO. Powers then confessed to the burglaries and showed law enforcement where both took place as well as where some loose change that had been taken had been hidden.

According to the Bill of Indictment, Powers took part in burglaries of Anne Thomas and Katie Pierson’s properties.

Powers was arrested on June 26 and has remained in the Brown County Adult Detention Center on $75,000 bond, according to the BCSO jail roster.

If convicted on all counts, Powers could face up to 16 years in prison, in addition to a fine.

Also indicted were:

Jeremy Jennings, 35, of Felicity, on; one count of theft, a fifth-degree felony, one count of receiving stolen property, a fifth-degree felony, and one count of forgery, a fifth-degree felony.

Eric M. Lewis, 36, of Georgetown, on; one count of breaking and entering, a fifth-degree felony, one count of theft, a fifth-degree felony, one count of forgery, a fifth-degree felony, and one count of resisting arrest, a second-degree misdemeanor.

Robert A. Mason, 44, of Hillsboro, on; one count of carrying a concealed weapon, a fourth-degree felony, one count of improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle, a fourth-degree felony, one count of improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle, a fifth-degree felony, one count of falsification, a first-degree misdemeanor, and two counts of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, a drug of abuse, or a combination of them, a first-degree misdemeanor.

Tracy Runnels, 45, of Williamsburg, on one count of theft of drugs, a fourth-degree felony.

William Joseph Wood Jr., 35, of Cincinnati, on one count of illegal manufacture of drugs, a second-degree felony, and one count of illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs, a third-degree felony.

David J. Zimmerer, 55, of Georgetown, on one count of illegal manufacture of drugs, a second-degree felony, and one count of illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs, a third-degree felony.

Kevin Blake Tucker, Joshua Brockman, and Brandy Keith, were also indicted by the Brown County Grand Jury. An explanation of the charges against these three individuals is included in a separate story that profiles a new county-wide initiative to crack down on drug suppliers in which the sale of drugs resulted in the death of the recipient.
