Five Men Plead Guilty To Hunting Violations - Court Orders Men To Pay Fines

April 7, 2007 - Associated Press

ATLANTIC, Iowa -- Five men, including a Coon Rapids police officer and two former officers from Harlan, pleaded guilty to hunting violations.

Kent Gries of Elk Horn and four men from Harlan -- Daniel Grabill, Dustin Hansen, Aaron Holtz, and Bradley Wendt -- entered pleas to one count of pursuing a deer with a car and trespassing in Cass County District Court Friday.

Court records said the men were ordered to pay fines of $165 each plus court costs.

Holtz and Wendt are former Harlan police officers. Gries is a police officer in Coon Rapids.

The charges stem from hunting incidents in November in Cass County.

Wendt also is charged in Adair County with failure to display his license plates.

Hansen, Wendt and Ross Burchett, of Harlan, face additional charges of shooting a rifle over water in Adair County.

Burchett also faces trespassing and pursuing a deer in a vehicle charges in Cass County. His case will be heard in court on April 12.
