OMAHA, Neb. (KSNB) - A Grand Island man Friday was sentenced to probation for a federal conviction for Possession of a Firearm by a Felon.

According to officials, 51-year-old Daniel Harp received four years of probation with special conditions and an additional condition of 12 weekends of intermittent confinement for possession of a firearm by a felon. There is no parole in the federal system.

On May 28, 2020, a Grand Island Police Officer stopped a vehicle driven by Daniel Harp. Harp was pat searched, and a container with pills was found on his person. The container did not have a prescription label on it and contained controlled substances.

Officers began searching the vehicle. Officers located loose marijuana shake on the floorboard and several shotgun shells throughout the cabin of the vehicle. An officer also found a black backpack in the back seat that contained mail addressed to Harp, a digital scale, several plastic baggies, syringes, a knife, a metal spoon, and a butane refill brass pin. Another officer found a TriStar Viper 12-gauge shotgun in the back seat area under a seat. That shotgun had been shipped and transported in interstate commerce.

Prior to May 28, 2020, Harp had prior felony convictions under Nebraska law for possession of a controlled substance, attempted distribution of a controlled substance, and theft.

This case was investigated by the Tri-Cities Drug Enforcement Team. It is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods.
