June 17th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The Harlan Police Department reports eight people were cited over the past week for Minor in Possession of Alcohol. Officials say an investigation into a noise complaint on June 9th at 1803 Lincoln Avenue, resulted in the arrest of four male juveniles. 17-year olds Brian Schechinger, Brock Travis, John Prichard and Joshua Carlisle, all from Harlan, were brought to the Harlan Police Department, cited for Minor in Possession, and released to the custody of their parents.

And, on Sunday (June 12th), 18-year olds Bailey McGrath and Jandy Johnston, and 19-year old Jill Haupts, all from Harlan, along with 19-year old Trisha Nowatzke, from Earling, were cited for Possession of Alcohol under the legal age, after a Harlan Police officer observed the teens allegedly in possession of booze when he pulled up next to their vehicle, in the parking lot of a business. All four were cited for the offense and released.

That same day, 21-year old Zachary Culp, from Harlan, was cited for selling alcohol to persons under the legal age, after officers observed him allegedly committing the act at the Harlan Kum and Go Store.
