The Elizabethtown Police Department apprehended two Elizabethtown men after they had stolen approximately $2700 worth of property from a residence on College Street Road. According to arrest citations, a witness stated he observed Willie Stallins and Corey Constant stealing the items out of the front window of the apartment. The two loaded the items into a stolen 2000 Honda Odyssey van and drove away. Later, the vehicle was found, and witnesses advised Stallins lived at a residence on Stallins Court. Police made contact with Stallins and Constant, who had the merchandise with them in the residence. Both denied any knowledge of the burglary or property. Another witness inside the residence confirmed the two had brought the items inside the house during the night hours. Constant and Stallins were both lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center.

The Elizabethtown Police Department responded to a Hardin County residence after receiving a call of a domestic dispute. According to arrest citations, when officers arrived at the home, they made contact with the victim who said that the father of her child, Nicholas Costa of Lake in the Hills, Illinois, was drunk and had assaulted her. Reportedly, Costa arrived at the residence heavily intoxicated, and became verbally abusive, throwing things around the apartment. The victim stated that Costa had flipped a child’s high chair toward her in anger, striking her in the side. He also allegedly broke the coffee pot and threw a printer at her before leaving. Officers then made contact with Costa, who smelled heavily of alcohol, and admitted he didn’t remember how much he had to drink. He was arrested and charged with assault and alcohol intoxication in a public place, and was lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center.

At a meeting of Hardin County Fiscal Court held last night, a resolution was proposed and subsequently voted on. The resolution called for a reaffirming of the oath that the magistrates had taken to serve the Constitution, also stating that the Constitution and all 27 ratified amendments are the supreme law of the land, and resolutions that face the fiscal court should be voted on as such. Most members of the fiscal court were not behind the resolution, however, and many voted no on the proposed item. The resolution was dropped with 5 nays to 3 yeas and one magistrate absent from voting.
