Newton Sheriff’s report 12.10.18

Published 1:11 pm Tuesday, December 11, 2018

PRESS RELEASE — Not too bad around here last week. Let’s see what has been going on.

We getting more calls on scams. Call’s saying, they are from the Social Security Administration. They wanting your social security number and your banking information. NO WAY JOSE. Be Smart! Tell them to call the Sheriff’s office, “they will have my information”.

Deputy Chris Berry fell off his deer stand and broke four ribs. He’s doing better but he will be off awhile. We will be shorthanded, so please bare with us.

Friday night and early Saturday morning we had lots of rain and flooding. Lots of county road damage. Let’s be patient with our road commissioners.

Never seen so many family knock down and drag outs. Come on folks, just leave.

Brother on brother, kids on moms and dads, husband’s on wife and it keeps going on. We need some mature adults out there. Sure would help us.

Lots of reports of drunk drivers for some reason. This time of year, drunks are all over the road. Please don’t drink and drive. First offense DWI is going to cost you about

$10,000 in fines, lawyer fees, reinstatement fees and so forth.

Gotta Go. Have court this morning. Thought for the week: There are no traffic jams along the extra mile. Have a good week and if we can help, just holler. God Bless.
