Elkhart Police detained a woman found with a stolen handgun and iphone taken from a crash site.
Officers encountered the suspect, Charity Slusser, 38, of Elkhart, late Monday night, Feb. 26, in the 400 block of Waterall Drive.

Her bond was set at $25,000, with the case forwarded to the Elkhart County Prosecutor’s Office for formal charges.
