People named in several indictments that were sealed Monday have been arrested and their names were released on Thursday, according to a release from Henry County Sheriff’s Capt. Eric Winn.
The sealed indictments included a number of charges that were related to a seven-month drug operation.
However, indictments also were sealed for incidents that were not part of that drug operation, Winn said.
An indictment is not an indication of guilt. It is a grand jury’s determination that enough evidence exists to warrant a trial.
Indictments issued that were not part of the drug operation are:
• Sherry Lynne Bunch, 49 1006 Smith Lake Road, Martinsville, one count each forgery, uttering (passing) forged check, obtain money by false pretenses.
• April M. Cannoy, 33, 601 Mitchell Road, Axton, one count each burglary, grand larceny, obtaining money by false pretenses.
• Robert William Easter, 29, 1766 Bassett Heights Road, Bassett, obtaining money by false pretenses.
• Cathy Lynn Gallegos, 50, 67 Chestnut St., Fieldale, two counts credit card fraud.
• William Raymond Handy, 38, 210 Tabor Drive, Martinsville, identity theft.
• Ricky Dean Janey, 54, 79 Maple Drive, Collinsville, possess cocaine.
• Iris Lee Toler, 49, 80 Spring Drive, Collinsville, obtain controlled substance by fraud.
• Christina Lynn Stanley, 44, 1111 Burchland Drive, Martinsville, one count each burglary, grand larceny.
An additional eight people are being sought on a total of 16 sealed indictments that also are unrelated to the drug investigation, Winn said.
Information contained in those indictments will be released as arrests are made and the indictments are unsealed.
