Another Harrison County individual has been arrested for her alleged involvement in a church burglary early last month.

Alicia Johnson, 19, was arrested last Thursday at 11:30 a.m. by Cpl. Walter Tapp of the Cynthiana Police Department.

She is charged with two counts of burglary and one count of theft.

Tapp said Johnson allegedly entered the Webster Avenue Church of God on two separate occasions between Feb. 5 and Feb. 6, at which point she allegedly took “a large amount of collection money.”

Tapp said statements from Laura Bailey, 18, and Kevin Northcutt, 20, identified Johnson as the primary suspect for the Feb. 5-6 church burglary.

Bailey and Northcutt were arrested Feb. 18 and charged with burglary after breaking into Robinson Christian Church, along with Timothy Lloyd Abbott Jr., 27.
