BEAVER CITY, Neb. A Holbrook woman bonded out of jail Monday, after a search of her home by Furnas County deputies last week revealed hunting equipment and hunting trophies allegedly stolen from another Holbrook residence.

Following the report of a burglary and ransacking of the house at 401 Swayze during the night of Wednesday, Sept. 6, and morning of Thursday, Sept.7, the owner listed missing items: hunting equipment, an elk antler, deer antler sheds, a mountain lion mount, a turkey mount and a mirror with antlers around it.

Deputies observed an elk antler behind the Brad and Brandy Carlson house at 419 Randolph in Holbrook, and, after obtaining a search warrant for the house, found other items believed to have been stolen from the residence on Swayze. Five people were detained and interviewed.

Deputies arrested resident Brandy R. Carlson and charged her with burglary, theft by receiving stolen property and criminal mischief. Her bond was set at 10 percent of $25,000.

Carlson will appear in court again on Monday, Sept. 25, at 9 a.m., for a preliminary hearing.
