The Community United Effort Center, which was offering a $5,000 reward for Harrelson’s return, received a tip that Harrelson may be in Rowan County. Officials went to a home on Bradshaw Road in Mt. Ulla and found Harrelson during a search of the home. One of three other people in the home was a 27-year-old woman wanted on drug charges.

Harrelson was taken to the Stone Wall Youth Developmental Center in Concord and is set to go back soon to Wilmington. The 27-year-old woman was given a $5,000 bond and placed in the Rowan County Detention Center.
