A Kitts Hill man faces charges that he took money from a local corporation without permission, Lawrence County Prosecutor J.B. Collier Jr. said.

Meeting Monday and Tuesday, the Lawrence County Grand Jury returned an indictment against Manuel Wilson, 43, of 628 County Road 61, Kitts Hill, charging him with one count of aggravated theft, a third-degree felony.

The indictment alleged that Wilson deprived Tri-State Industries of $100,000 or more without the consent of his employer, Collier said.

The grand jury also returned four other true bills:

– Michael Laverack, 18, of 403 Brehl Ave., Columbus, was charged with receiving stolen property, fourth-degree felony.

– Larry Stoneburner, 18, of 69 Jones Ave., Columbus, was charged with receiving stolen property, fourth-degree felony.

– John Tallini, 40, of South Eighth Street, Ironton, was charged with domestic violence, fifth-degree felony.

– James Langley, 24, of 62 Township Road 1272, Proctorville, was charged with theft, fifth-degree felony; two counts of theft by deception, first-degree misdemeanors; and two counts of forgery, fourth-degree felonies

As filed, an indictment represents only a formal charge and does not indicate a court judgment.
