The Harlan Police Department reports four 18-year olds were arrested last week on alcohol charges, following a traffic stop. Taken into custody on May 25th, were: Brock Travis, Jared Klein, and Cari Freml, all of Harlan, and, Rachel Ferry, of Kirkman. Each was cited for Possession of Alcohol under legal age, and later released. Their booze was confiscated.

On that same day, 32-year old Shelly Hulsebus, of Harlan, turned herself in to authorities. The woman was wanted on an active Shelby County warrant for 3rd degree theft, after allegedly taking $412 from the cash register at the place of her employer, Bomgaars Supply, Incorporated, in April. Hulsebus was being held in the Shelby County Jail on $1,000 bond.

Authorities in Harlan also spent part of the past week investigating an incident of vandalism. On May 23rd, a Harlan woman reported that her 1992 Lincoln Town Carr was intentionally scratched on both sides, and the driver’s seat punctured twice. The damage was estimated at $1,500, and the case remains under investigation.
