The Harlan Police Department reports a Harlan woman, 27-year old Amanda Sue Wicker, was arrested Tuesday, on an active Shelby County warrant for Failure to Appear for a pre-trial conference on drug related charges, and a moving violation. Wicker’s bond was set at $10,000. Wicker was arrested on December 31st, 2011 on two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance, Driving while denied or revoked, and OWI/1st offense. She had been scheduled to appear at her pre-trial conference on April 30th. Her trial is set to take place on May 30th.

Three days prior to her arrest for skipping her court appearance, Wicker was arrested on a Class-D Felony charge of Criminal Mischief in the 2nd degree, after police investigated an incident where a 2001 Chevy Suburban had been extensively damaged at a location on Market Street. She had posted a $500 cash bond and was ordered to appear for a preliminary hearing on the charges, on May 17th.
