Brandon was turned over to the Mercer County Sheriff's Office.

Angela Bradley works as Billerman's housekeeper, but Billerman told officers that Bradley did not have permission to have the items. Found with Bradley were credit cards, identification cars, a social security card and other identification information along with a blank check from Billerman's account. Police also found property belonging to others who have yet to be located.
Angela Bradley was taken to the Mercer County Jail facing four misdemeanor counts of theft.
Meanwhile, two 18-year-old Celina men were arrested on multiple misdemeanor charges for allegedly damaging and stealing from a condominium. Jared L. Reier and Trevor A. Kriegel were caught inside after being seen by a nearby witness as they entered the condo garage.
Police say their investigation show that both Reier and Kriegel had been inside that home multiple times and had been involved both in thefts and causing damage to the property. Both men were jailed, but posted bond that same day. Each faces charges of misdemeanor theft, trespassing and criminal damaging. The police investigation is continuing, and more charges may possibly be filed.
