Newton County Sheriff’s report 8.26.19

PRESS RELEASE — Hope everyone had a great week. Not too bad around here. Some of the guys who have been off are back. Still keep Deputy Sonny White in your prayers.

Received a call from the Farrsville Community. Someone went into the cemetery and broke several tombstones. We need to catch who did it. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Sick! Sick! Sick!

Lady called and said she hired a man named “Monster Baby” to haul scrap iron off. She loaned him a low boy, a come along and a ratchet strap. So “Monster Baby,” she needs her ratchet strap and come along. She said you forgot to return it.

Received a call where a lady said that a man has used camo netting to hide her house. She may have been on drugs.

Deputy Wonders had a vehicle refuse to stop and took off to Louisiana. Once they got toLouisiana, the bad guy turned around and came back to Texas. He likes our jail better than Louisiana jail.

Gotta go. Starting a murder trial this morning.

Thought of the week: ‘Seen it all, done it all, can’t remember most of it.’

Ya’ll have a great week and if we can help, just holler! God Bless.
