Charges Dropped Against Orrington Couple 

Brandi Harris and Vince Hatch were arrested Tuesday in Maine after a nationwide amber alert was issued by the state of Iowa.

Harris and Hatch drove there and picked up Harris’ children, 8-year-old Rae Ann Meyer and 10-year-old Cameron Meyer, without permission from her ex-husband, Jeff Meyer.

They were charged in Iowa with violating a custodial order and fugitive from justice.

But the Iowa A.G. dismissed those counts after reviewing the custody rules for the children.

The rules say Harris and Meyer are supposed to switch off each week taking care of Rae Ann and Cameron in the summer.

But Meyer moved the children to Iowa in early July and Harris hadn’t seen them until she drove there this week.
