NASCAR driver Mike Harmon was released on bond Wednesday after a warrant was issued for his arrest over the theft of Jennifer Jo Cobb's van earlier this month.

Yahoo! Sports reports The Rowan County Sheriff's Office issued warrants for the arrest of Harmon and his sister Sheila Rae Rice on Wednesday following Cobb's claims that her hauler was stolen on May 11.

The siblings were taken into custody for felony larceny of a trailer and breaking and entering of a motor vehicle.

Harmon was Cobb's team manager when she ran in the Nationwide Series. According to a post on Cobb's Facebook page she did not specifically accuse him of stealing her vehicle and the arrest warrant against him was issued because of "evidence and eye witness accounts."

Shorty after Cobb -- who runs for the Jennifer Jo Cobb Racing team -- reported the van as stolen, David Novak -- who has been in litigation with Cobb about the ownership of the team -- contacted the Ponce Inlet Police Department and claimed the vehicle belonged to him.

Cobb said in a statement that her sole concern was to get the transporter back so "we can make Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.”
