The Harlan Police Department reports five people were arrested over the course of the past week or so. On Sunday, 17-year old Jenna McDaniel and 21-year old Michael Tremayne, both of Harlan, were charged with Domestic Abuse Assault. The pair were arrested after officers investigated a reported altercation. Tremayne was brought to the Shelby County Jail, while McDaniel was transported to the Juvenile Detention Center in Council Bluffs. That same day, 18-year old Cassidy Coenen, of Harlan, was arrested on a weapons charge, after she was found to be in possession of a switchblade knife, following a traffic stop.

On Saturday, officers with the Harlan P-D arrested 29-year old Gabriel Brown, of Harlan, for allegedly violating a No Contact Order. The order was issued after Brown was arrested last Friday, following an altercation between himself and his wife. Police had responded to the 800 block of Market Street after receiving a report of a man threatening suicide. During their investigation, Brown’s wife told police about the domestic incident. Brown was later taken into custody on a charge of Domestic Abuse Assault.

And, 29-year old Bret VanPatten, of Harlan, was arrested Friday following a reported disturbance at the Westside Bar, in Harlan. VanPatten was charged with Public Intoxication.
