A 35-year-old Harrington man turned himself in to police Thursday to face multiple criminal charges stemming from an incident last month.
Police initially took Steven R. Huey into custody at his home in the 100 block of Dorman Street on Dec. 27 after receiving a report after someone threatening to commit suicide, Harrington Police Department spokesman Lt. Earl K. Brode said.
Huey was uncooperative and placed under arrest after a short struggle, he said. Officers then learned Huey had taken a vehicle without permission earlier that day.
After Huey was taken to a local hospital for a mental evaluation, officers found a cigarette box he had attempted to hide inside the vehicle that contained drug paraphernalia, Brode said.
Upon his release from a psychiatric facility, Huey turned himself in to Harrington police.
He is charged with tampering with physical evidence, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, resisting arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He later was released on $4,000 unsecured bond.
