Published 2:46 pm Monday, August 20, 2018

PRESS RELEASE — Wow! What a week! This report might be a little long.

Please go get game camera’s and put them out around your house and property. Thieves are going crazy this last week or so. Also, please get all your serial numbers and put them up.

Anyone have any information on a black 20’ lowboy trailer. It was stolen off Hwy 87 in Bleakwood. We think it was used to steal the camo New Holland side by side and the green Honda 4-wheeler. Anyone show up with any of these items, please let us know.

Us and Orange County officers had to deal with a man who was going to shoot officers with a deer rifle. All live on facebook. After four hours, he put the gun down . We’re getting him help.

Received a 911 call where a lady staying with a friend and the ex-wife showed up. No good. Ex-wife hit lady with baseball bat. The fight started. Ex-wife left. No ambulance needed.

Received a report where a lady is missing in Indian Lake. She was last seen on video at 9:30 a.m. coming out of the woods at the end of Indian Lake road. In the early stage of the investigation. More to come later.

Received a call where two gators were mating under a ladies house. They were tearing everything up.

Received a report of a scam where a man lost a lot of cash. Please don’t send anyone cash through the mail. If it sounds too good to be true, it’s a hack.

Early Monday morning we were called to a house where two brothers were having major problems. Gun was involved. After a hour or so we got it all settled.

Deputies made three drug arrest in the last day or so. We got some meth and weed off the street. Good job guys.

Gotta Go: Thought for the week. Stop worrying about the world ending today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia. Ya’ll have a good week. If we can help, just holler. God Bless.
