Indiana State Police with the Sellersburg post recently used tips from the public to help capture a couple of alleged thieves. On July 10, troopers were dispatched to the Hardy Lake beach area to investigate a theft. Victims told the officers that someone had gained entry to their unlocked car and taken a wallet and other items which included an iPod, a cell phone and a GPS system. Other folks visiting the beach supplied troopers with descriptions of two young men and their car. Using those tips, troopers matched the descriptions to James Stephan Tharp, 22, Crothersville, and Eric Lee Couch, 23, Austin.
