Missing inmate arrested in Grand Island

Grand Island, Neb. — An inmate who didn’t return to the Community Corrections Center in Lincoln (CCC-L) last month has been arrested. 20 year old Torrien Harris was taken into custody by the Grand Island Police Department on Tuesday after she didn’t return to CCC-L on July 18 from her job in the community. Harris was placed at the facility on February 17. She was sentenced to a year and two months to two years and five months on charges of burglary, theft and obstructing a peace officer out of Lancaster County. She has a tentative release date of November 4, 2022.

At 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Grand Island Police went to the 800 block of West Sixth Street in response to a man who said Torrien Harris entered a residence, stole his Apple Mac Book Pro laptop valued at $2,500 and his Galaxy S10E cell phone valued at $300 from another residence. Officers saw Torrien Harris running out the back yard of the second residence and she attempted to run away from officers after being given commands to stop. She was later detained and a record check confirmed a State of Nebraska arrest warrant.

Harris has been charged in Hall County Court with theft by unlawful taking $1,500 to $4,999 and obstructing a peace officer. She also faces a felony charge in Lancaster County for escape while under arrest on a felony charge.
