Durham incident ends in two arrests
A phone call tipping off the sheriff’s office about the location of a man wanted on three warrants ended with two people being arrested at a Durham residence Monday.
Undersheriff David Hartley said deputies evacuated the residents of the house before they arrested Ryan A. Hardy, 19, Hillsboro, without incident.
Hardy was in possession of a handgun stolen from an unlocked car in Hillsboro, Hartley said.
He was arrested on suspicion of distribution of a stimulant suspected to be heroin, drug paraphernalia, possession of a weapon by a felon, and possession of a stolen firearm, criminal use of a weapon, and on three warrants for alleged probation violation.
Hardy’s girlfriend, Sharee N. Bradley, 25, Hoisington, was also arrested on suspicion of possession of heroin with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Hillsboro police Chief Dan Kinning said Hardy is a suspect in a Hillsboro car theft and two car burglaries last week. Additional charges may be filed in those cases, he said.
