The Mills County Sheriff’s Office reports two people were arrested this past week and one accident was investigated. Thursday night, 45-year old Laurie Ann Stephens, of Council Bluffs, was arrested for Domestic Abuse Assault. She was being held in the Mills County Jail Friday without bond. And, on Wednesday, 26-year old Curtis Lin Harrod, of Council Bluffs, was arrested at the Pottawattamie County Jail, on a Mills County warrant for revocation of his pre-trial release. Harrod’s bond was set at $10,000.

That same day, authorities in Mills County investigated an accident that happened at around 11:30-a.m., about 7-miles north of Glenwood. Officials say a 2006 Chrysler driven by Theresa Wissing, of Glenwood, was traveling south on 221st Street when a northbound 1996 Lincoln driven by Jeramy Elrod, of Mineola, crossed the center line of the road. After the cars collided, the Chrysler spun around and came to rest in the west ditch. The Lincoln went off the road to the left, went up an embankment and hit a stop sign and roadway sign, before coming to rest in the west ditch. No serious injuries were reported.
