Man indicted on second meth charge

RICHMOND — A grand jury indicted a man on a methamphetamine manufacturing charge stemming from a traffic stop made while the man was on his way to a court hearing on another drug-related charge.

Alonzo Edward Denny Jr., 22, was stopped by Berea police for speeding after officers received a tip that a car matching the one Denny was driving contained a meth lab.

A search of the vehicle uncovered several items used in manufacturing the drug, Berea police said, and Denny was arrested.

Denny was indicted on a charge of manufacturing methamphetamine and driving on a suspended license Wednesday for the incident.

He already was under indictment for manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of the drug, marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession and was on his way to court on those charges when he was arrested, Berea police said.

Denny is scheduled to return to court on those charges May 3, court records indicate. He will be arraigned on the new indictment May 20.

Rape indictment

Timothy James Hounshell, 33, was indicted on charges of third-degree rape and two misdemeanor counts of third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor.

The indictment alleges that Hounshell provided alcohol and engaged in sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 16.

The alleged offenses took place between Oct. 1 and Dec. 16 of last year, according to the indictment.

The grand jury minutes for the case indicate a charge of custodial interference against Hounshell was dismissed.

Hounshell is free on bond, according to the grand jury minutes.

Other indictments

• Javier Cruz-Vasquez, no age or address listed, on first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and misdemeanor charges of second-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. If convicted, Cruz-Vasquez could receive five to 10 years in prison on the trafficking charge and up to 12 months in jail on each of the misdemeanor charges.

• Joshua B. Brewer, no age or address listed, on flagrant non-support. If convicted, Brewer could receive up to five years in prison.

An indictment is a formal statement of charges and does not imply guilt.
