As a result of an undercover drug investigation by the Brown County Sheriff's Office, three suspects face multiple felony charges for Trafficking in Drugs.

Sheriff Dwayne Wenninger reports that Alonzo Garcia, 28 years of age, and Christina Malott, 23 years of age, both residing on East Plum Street, Georgetown, Ohio were arrested on February 9, 2012 for multiple Trafficking in Drug and related charges for their involvement in selling prescription pain pills.  Both suspects are being held at the Brown County Detention Center.  Garcia's bond is $50,000.00 and Malott's bond is $25,000.00.

Wenninger says the investigation also revealed that James Luke, 66 years of age of Ripley, Ohio was supplying pain pills to Garcia & Malott, who were selling them to others.  A search warrant was obtained from Brown County Municipal Court Judge Joseph M. Worley and was executed by the Sheriff's Office at Luke's home on February 14, 2012.  A total of $19,000.00 cash and a vehicle were seized from the suspects.  Felony charges for Trafficking in Drugs on James Luke will be presented to the next Grand Jury for indictment.

The sheriff encourages anyone with information on illegal drug activity in Brown County to contact the Brown County Sheriff's Office Drug Information Hotline at 937-378-4435 Ext. 275, or to send an anonymous tip to www.browncountyohiosheriff.us
