Former Elmore cop accused of exposing himself to teenage girl

Shaun Harder

A former Elmore police officer who is already in trouble for threatening a horse rescue mission is now facing even more serious accusations.

Shaun Harder, 24, is charged with trying to solicit sex with a 14-year-old girl he met online.

Investigators say Harder exposed himself to the girl and sent her hundreds of sexually explicit text messages. Her mother discovered the relationship and called authorities.

Harder is currently behind bars on several charges related to this case.

He is also facing charges for allegedly threatening the Arabian Rescue Mission via his Facebook page.

The mission is involved in the rescue of 36 horses from an Oak Harbor farm.
