?    A cooperative effort by Harrison County Sheriff’s Office, Corydon Police Department and the Indiana State Police produced an arrest
warrant for Jeremy Paul Karlin.
    On September 28 Harrison County Sheriff’s Deputy Marty McClanahan investigated a burglary at the Old Capitol United Methodist Church in Corydon. Some of the items taken from the church were a projector, DVD player, and assorted cables.
    On October 1, the church reported a second burglary in which two Yamaha speakers, an audio headset, microphone(s), cables, cart, and a sound mixer were taken.
    On October 16, the owner/leaser of a farm equipment maintenance building in Corydon reported to Corydon Police Officer, Mark Bye, that he had discovered electronic items in a small room of the maintenance building. The electronic items were later identified as the items taken during the two burglaries at Old Capitol United Methodist Church. Personal items not belonging to the owner/leaser were also found.
    On October 17, Senior Trooper/Detective William J. Wibbles, Jr., with Indiana State Police Sellersburg Post, took the leads in the investigation and began putting the pieces of the puzzle together. The investigation established probable cause for filing charges on Jeremy
Karlin.

?    Floyd Central and North Harrison’s boys’ cross country both finished better than their coaches expected at the IHSAA State Cross Country Meet Saturday at the Lavern Gibson Course near Terre Haute.
    The previous week, after having finished third at the Brown County semi state, Floyd Central coach Tim Korte said he was hoping for something like the 12th spot, as a team.
