Newton County Sheriff’s report 9.23.19

PRESS RELEASE — Please remember Southeast Texas flood victims in your prayers. Lots of people got their homes flooded again.

We are trying to locate Prentis “Arnold” Lewis. We have warrants on him. I talked to him on the phone and he will not come in or tell me where he is. Any information will be appreciated.

We received a call about a naked lady here in the Newton area. We had several officers volunteer to take the call. Wonder why.

Game Warden Landon Spacek was checking camps in Type II hunting area when he discovered stolen property. Constable Lane Mooney from Orange County had his camp hit a couple weeks ago. We got all his property back. Great job Landon. One in jail.

Got a call about people in a man’s attic. We checked it out. No boogers. Same call four hours later. Still no boogers. Man shot 9mm pistol into the attic six times. Now his house is going to leak. Still no boogers located.

Gotta go. Thought for the week: To succeed in life you need three things. A wish bone, a back bone and a funny bone. Ya’ll have a great week and if we can help, just holler. God Bless.
