  • A Harrisburg couple were arrested for stealing a vehicle shortly after 6:30 a.m. Tuesday at an address on Skaggs Street.
    Police arrested Monica Renaeh Gibbs, 19, 2 N. Skaggs St. Apt. 702, Harrisburg, 11:55 a.m. Sept. 17 on charges of theft over $500, theft over $10,000, possession of methamphetamine manufacturing materials and possession of drug paraphernalia; and Forest Allen Holloway, 23, 437 W. Church St., Harrisburg, noon Sept. 17 on charges of theft over $500 and theft over $10,000.
    They were both charged with stealing a pickup truck from the Economy Inn on Poplar Street at sometime after 1 a.m. Tuesday, according to Police Chief Bob Smith.
    The vehicle's location and time of theft were determined by an onboard GPS navigation system added to the pickup after purchase. The stops that were made by the vehicle after it was stolen led police to the Skaggs Street location where the arrests were made and drug equipment found.
