GARNER, Iowa – After nearly 2 ½ years on the lam, a man has finally been sentenced for a Hancock County car theft.

Jeremiah John Somerfelt Harmon, 31 of Waterloo, was charged with two counts of 2nd degree theft in June 2015 after the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office says he stole a car from Crystal Lake. The vehicle also contained over $1,500 in personal property.

Harmon agreed to enter an Alford plea to one count of 2nd degree theft but failed to appear for a hearing in September 2015 and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Harmon was then arrested in March 2018 in Story County and turned over to Hancock County law enforcement.

On Friday, Harmon was convicted of 2nd degree theft and ordered to spend three years on supervised probation. He must also get a substance abuse and mental health evaluation and complete all recommended treatment.
