Published 9:03 am Monday, August 19, 2019

PRESS RELEASE — We have earned our money this week. It’s been busy. Let’s see what’s been going on.

Please have patience with us for the next two weeks. We have two deputies off because of new babies being born, one on 10 days emergency leave and deputy White taking chemo. Please remember them in your prayers.

Received a call where two brothers having a knock down and drag out. Seems one brother choked out the other. All about how to load a horse in a trailer. Brotherly love.

Deputy Wonders recovered a stolen vehicle in Deweyville and arrested a female who was in possession of the vehicle. Good job Matt.

We received several calls about people dumping dogs. One call was about momma dog and a litter of puppies. Please help us out. If we catch you dumping dogs, we will file charges. It’s against the law.

If you borrowed a wood burning stove from someone two years ago, they want it back.

Gotta go. Thought of the week: The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. Ya’ll have a great week and if we can help, just holler. God Bless.
