A Highland County Grand Jury on Tuesday handed down indictments of 10 people, including a Hillsboro man who allegedly brandished what appeared to be a handgun during a robbery at the Hillsboro Walmart in December.

Kasey Shandel Wright, 18, was indicted on one count of aggravated robbery, a first degree felony, with a specification alleging he displayed, brandished, indicated possession of or used a firearm; and one count of theft, a first-degree misdemeanor.

As reported by The Times-Gazette, Wright was arrested in December after police said he and a 17-year-old male took two cartons of cigarettes from Walmart in Hillsboro on Dec. 17.

During the robbery, Wright allegedly brandished what appeared to be a handgun, officials told The Times-Gazette.

Police later recovered a pellet/BB gun that they suspect Wright had during the robbery.

Wright is still listed as incarcerated at the county jail with a $100,000 bond.

The juvenile, whose name has not been released, was not listed in the indictment.
