On Wednesday, August 4, a Hartford man was arrested for being in possession of firearms on school property.

Police Chief Wayne Robb responded to the call of a suspicious person in the joint parking lot of Mercy Family Medicine and the Mansfield Elementary School, located at 100 N. Walnut Street. Upon arrival on scene, Robb made contact with a male subject and sought a consent for search. According to Robb, the subject, Daniel Harris, was cooperative and agreeable to the search. That search led to the discovery of four firearms, a set of handcuffs, and a bulletproof vest.

Harris, a Security Corporal at Choctaw Casinos and Resorts, was allegedly waiting inside the vehicle on a female he had brought to the clinic. The female reportedly alerted the staff that she was fearful because of the number of guns Harris had.

The concealed handgun carry license holder was arrested on four charges of firearms possession on school property, class D felonies. He was transported to the Scott County Detention Center and booked in at 8:09 p.m. Following a hearing on Friday, August 6, Harris was released on $35,000 bond.
