Newton County Sheriff’s report 6.11.18

Published 9:38 am Tuesday, June 12, 2018

PRESS RELEASE — It’s been pretty quiet around here. Let’s see what’s been going on in the county.

You know when you do something wrong, there is going to be consequences. Being on drugs or alcohol is no excuse. Don’t blame us for doing our job. You gotta pay the fiddler.

We had several grass fires reported this week. Please be careful when doing your burning. It can get out of control before you know it.

We received several complaints about 4-wheelers and side by sides being driven by kids on the roads. Please moms and dads, help us with this. They can get seriously hurt so easy.

Received a report of a hospice patient who took all his medicine and left his residence. Trout Creek Fire Department and others get him located far into the woods. Big Thanks goes out to Howard West and all his helpers getting him out of the woods and to the hospital.

Gotta Go. Thought for the week. Why are fathers like parking places? The good ones are already taken. Ya’ll have a good week and if we can help, just holler! God Bless!
