Elizabethtown police arrested a man this week after allegedly finding someone else’s absentee ballot in his possession.
Elizabethtown Police made contact with the subject, Allen Hartford, in reference to a civil complaint. Police discovered that Hartford had an active warrant against him. While conducting a search of him, police discovered an absentee ballot on him, with police saying Hartford was unable to tell them for sure how he got it. Police delivered the ballot to the address listed, where the owner said he did not know it was missing, and that no one else was supposed to be in possession of the ballot. Hartford was arrested and charged with possession of stolen mail, a Class D felony in Kentucky.
He was lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center.
