Newton County Sheriff’s Report 7.2.18

Published 9:56 am Tuesday, July 3, 2018

Happy 4th to ALL. Hope your hot dogs and watermelon are good. Let’s see what’s going on.

Good job goes out to Deputy Hopson. We got a call about a burglary that just happened. The owner got a good look at the bad guy and his vehicle. Deputy Hopson located him and he is still in jail. All property recovered!

We ran a search warrant north of Burkeville. We found some drugs and items, we think are stolen from a hunting club.

Thanks to everyone who helped by playing in or sponsoring the Newton Athletic Booster Club golf tournament. Big success. Thanks to all.

Someone dropped off a mama dog and her puppies. Mama dog had been shot. If we can prove who dropped off these dogs, you will be filed on.

Several people in the county are putting camera’s out around their property to catch bad guys. It’s working. Keep up the good work.

A store clerk found a bag of meth at the store while she was working. Anyone loose

this meth, give us a call. We have it!

Gotta go: Thought for the week: I find it ironic that the colors, red, white and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing . Ya’ll have a good week. If we can help, just holler.
