A Georgetown man is facing robbery charges after allegedly stealing cash and a vehicle from his girlfriend to buy heroin on Sunday afternoon, March 13.
Brandon Lee Vaughn, allegedly lured his live-in girlfriend into their North Apple Street home and restrained her against a wall, taking from her pockets a purse with $200 in cash, credit cards, debit cards, as well as her cell phone and her car keys. Vaughn then left the scene in the victim’s car, police said.
Chief Robert Freeland of Georgetown Police said the victim received a cut to her thumb during the incident.
According to Freeland, police caught up with Vaughn back at the residence early Monday morning by pinging the victim’s stolen cell phone. After making a forced entry on the home, Georgetown Police found Vaughn inside hiding and were able to arrest him without further incident.
Vaughn has been charged with second-degree felony robbery, fourth-degree felony grand theft of a motor vehicle and first-degree misdemeanor domestic violence. He is currently being held on $100,000 cash, surety or property bond. Defense counsel Aaron Maus will be representing Vaughn as his attorney, according to court records.
