        LEBANON — A trail of beer cans led investigators to 32-year-old Scott A. Williams, of Franklin, who police say stole nearly $1,800 in valuables from a church less than a thousand feet from his home.

        In indictments announced Friday, a Warren County grand jury charged Mr. Williams with breaking and entering, theft and vandalism.

        Police say Mr. Williams made several trips between the Church of Nazarene and his home on June 10 to steal a television, VCR, speakers and miscellaneous audio equipment.

        Police said they found several beer cans in the short path between the home and church.

        Mr. Williams' relationship with the church was unclear, police said.

        In other grand jury action, a woman accused of smuggling eight grams of marijuana in her shoe to her inmate boyfriend at Lebanon Correctional Institution also was indicted Friday.

        Authorities said Brady Flantoill, 25, of Westwood, tried to bring the drugs to Robert Lattimore, 26, who is serving a seven-year sentence for robbery and kidnapping.

        Both were charged with illegal conveyance of weapons or prohibited items onto the grounds of a detention facility.
