Newton County Sheriff’s Report 10.15.18

Published 11:36 am Monday, October 15, 2018

PRESS RELEASE — Hope everyone had a great week. Not too bad around here. Let’s see what has been going on.

We had a couple calls about hunters shooting very close to homes. Remember two things happen every time you shoot a gun. “Once the bullet leaves the barrel, you can’t get it back” and “your responsible for every thing the bullet does”. Be careful and be smart.

We received a call reporting that a lady dumped two puppies at the dump. We located her and had a prayer meeting with her. It’s against the law to dump dogs. I don’t think she will do it again.

We had several windows knocked out of vehicles in the Newton area over the weekend. Anyone know anything about it, please let us know. We need to know who these thugs are.

I have had two of my dear friends scammed in the last couple of weeks. It breaks my heart to have elderly taken advantage of the way these animals do. Please please please before you send any money to anyone you don’t know, talk to someone. If it sounds too good to be true, don’t respond.

We are in the middle of working a sexual assault of a child. Very heart breaking. I would love to tell you all bout it, but you know I can’t.

Gotta go. Thought for the week. “In school, you are taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson. Ya’ll have a great week and if we can help, just holler. God Bless.
