Two people face drug trafficking charges following a welfare check in Georgetown on Thursday, March 10.
Brenda Kay Bellamy and Alfonzo Bayatah Pratt were each charged with aggravated trafficking in drugs, a fourth-degree felony, trafficking in marijuana, aggravated possession of drugs and permitting drug abuse, all fifth-degree felonies.
Georgetown Police were called to the couple’s Marshall Avenue apartment on Thursday evening to conduct a welfare check and discovered evidence of drug abuse while at the apartment, police said.
Police then executed a search warrant on the apartment in collaboration with an agent from the Brown County Drug & Major Crimes Task Force, recovering suspected hydrocodone and marijuana in various locations in a master bedroom.
Bellamy was placed under arrest on scene and Pratt was arrested at the Georgetown McDonald’s later in the evening. Pratt allegedly admitted to trafficking in Percocet (oxycodone) and marijuana in a videotaped statement with investigators, according to court documents.
Bond was set at $10,000 cash, surety or property for Pratt and $7,000 cash, surety or property for Bellamy. Both are expected in court for an appointment of counsel hearing next Monday.

They have no business receiving other people’s hard earned money. Let them stay incarcerated until they get jobs ,real ones.
That doesn’t solve anything. What planet are you from? No they shouldn’t receive welfare, but who do you think pays to house, feed & provide medical for them? Taxpayers! So taxpayers pay for these types regardless. My goodness there are things to be done in brown co. We need drainage ditches dug in our area of town. Lets provide them with good old backbreaking work! Pay an oversee person to supervise. That would be cheaper on both ends. Marijuana will be legal in Ohio soon. Drug busts should be scripts, cocaine, meth, & heroin. Those are the drugs that cause harm.ofcourse if you have the right last name, you can grow as much as you want, with a slap on the hand!!!! What about that drug task force of Brown co. I’m sure No Comment.
how are they going to get real jobs while incarcerated the whole system is screwed up and until its fixed nobody is safe
When rich and influential people are considered above the Law , then any respect for the Law is sadly lost !!! A good clean out is needful , not unlike what Jesus did at the temple ! .
