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.
