Bond has been set at $25,000 for two Brownstown men who are charged with breaking into six Brownstown businesses early last week.

Fayette County State’s Attorney Stephen Friedel last week filed felony burglary charges against Justin Michael Waterman and Gaige S. Jackson.

Waterman, 23, and Jackson, 18, were arrested last Tuesday and charged on Wednesday with breaking into Good Old Days Diner, Brownstown Lumber, Brownstown Floral & Gifts, Andy’s Auto Body, Zimmer Auto Body and New Beginnings Resale Shop & Backroom Video Rental with the intent of committing thefts.

Each of the six counts filed against the two men is a Class 2 felony punishable by up to seven years in prison and/or a fine of up to $25,000.

During their first appearance in court on Thursday, Fayette County Public Defender Ed Potter was appointed to represent Waterman.

Jackson was given until Sept. 9 to obtain an attorney.
