Brandy L. Burdine of the 900 block of Katherine Court in Seymour was arrested on two Class A felony counts of dealing in a controlled substance, a Class B felony charge of dealing in a controlled substance and a charge of possession of marijuana.

Burdine’s arrest follows four that occurred in late August. Arrested last month were Walter L. Brooks, 64, Crothersville, two counts dealing in a controlled substance; Rocky A. Drake, 36, Seymour, three counts dealing in a controlled substance; Rocky Jones, 31, Seymour, three counts dealing in a controlled substance; and Katrina K.
