Newton County Sheriff report 5.13.19

PRESS RELEASE — Stayed bowed up most of the week.  Let’s see what was going on.

We picked a jury and started a trial Monday morning.  Lot of our officers were tied up Monday and Tuesday.  If you called for assistance and it took extra time for us to get there, we apologize.

A lady walked in to the office to complain on her neighbor.  Seems the neighbor is a devil worshiper and is putting voodoo on her and her house.  The devil voodoo is yellow and blue.  I did not know it comes in different colors.  She stated that a red bird taps on her window and tells her this.  That’s how she knows.

A lady called and said her boyfriend has been shot several times.  She is taking him to the hospital in Jasper.   She ran out of gas.  Our Deputy picks them up and takes them to the hospital.   They won’t give a statement, do not want to file charges.  Mean while the guy was shot in belly and will be eating soup for a while.  We are still investigating.

Job well done goes out to Deputy Adams during routine check of a business in Deweyville, he caught a man stealing copper wire from an A/C.  Bad guy in jail, Deputy Adams gets pat on back.  Good job!

Received a call from a lady who said she thinks she found a stolen tractor.  She stated it looks like her neighbors stolen tractor.  It was.  Good neighbors are priceless.

Gotta Go.  Thought for the week. Doing nothing is hard, you never know when you’re done.  Ya’ll have a good week and if we can help, just holler.  God Bless.
