(FREMONT) - A Fremont woman and her teenage son have taken the town of Fremont, its police department, two Fremont Police Officers and the Steuben County Sheriffs Department to court over the alleged actions of police officers during the early morning hours of January 26th. In a suit that was filed on Tuesday in Steuben Superior Court, plaintiffs Lana Fanning and Alexander Fanning claim Fremont officers Jordan Trippe and Adam Kitson searched their home while the teenager was detained by a Sheriffs Department Police Dog during what the Fannings claim was a "home invasion". The incident happened after police saw the younger Fanning walking in the area of the Fremont Community Center to his home on West Follet Lane at 12:30am. According to court documents, Steuben Circuit Judge Allen Wheat determined on February 18th that the two officers involved in the case did not have a reasonable suspicion that Alexander Fanning had committed or was about to commit a crime. The lawsuit goes on to claim that the police officers involved were not properly trained, supervised or disciplined. The Fannings are being represented by Allen Stout and Marilyn Ernsberger. Fremont Town Attorney Kurt Bachman was unavailable for comment on Thursday.
