Newton’s County Sheriff’s Report 7.16.18

Published 11:06 am Monday, July 16, 2018

Hope everyone had a good week. Wasn’t too bad around here. Chief Deputy Hall was on vacation and she was missed.   She does so much, you don’t miss her till she’s gone.

We had several calls where family members assaulted family members. Drugs and alcohol were involved with most of the calls. Children witnessed some of these. Breaks your heart!

We spent time finding a man who dumped garbage in a hunting club. He said he would clean it up. $1000.00 fine is he doesn’t.

We received two snake calls this week. One rattlesnake and one cotton mouth. Please be careful when dealing with snakes. They will make you hurt yourself. Word is mothballs help keep snakes away, so does #6 squirrel shot!

We arrested two males for breaking into deer camps. We recovered lots of small items that were identified by owners.

Gotta go. Though for the week. If only common sense was more common. Ya’ll have a good week and if we can help, just holler. God Bless.
