Two men who were arrested earlier this week for stealing a car have had the charge dropped and the car’s owner has been arrested for filing a false report that led to their arrest.
Since Elkins and Ganous were arrested based on that report, the theft of property charge was dropped and both were released from custody. Elkins is still charged with no driver’s license and Ganous is still charged with no seat-belt as a result of the original incident.
Stinson, 23, of Nashville, was arrested by investigators Thursday, March 16 and charged with filing a false report to law enforcement officers, a Class D felony. He was transported to the Hempstead County Detention Center where he is awaiting his first court appearance.
