Newton County Sheriff’s Report 1.27.20

Published 9:33 am Monday, January 27, 2020

PRESS RELEASE — I had to go to Austin last week for a couple of days. Big thanks to all the guys and gals here at the office for holding down the fort. Let’s see what’s been going on.

Can’t believe it! Only one dog problem reported all week. Some kind of record.

Our drug officer stopped a man with several grams of meth and a pistol. All the elements of a federal case. Good job Quinton.

We had several chainsaws stolen in the north end. Anyone hears of a good deal on a chainsaw, please let us know.

Received a call where a Mahindra Tractor with front end loader and a bush hog was stolen from FM 1415. Any information on this would be appreciated.

We get so many family disturbances calls. When we get these, they don’t want the other person to go to jail. It breaks your heart because so many of these are in front of their children. Oh well, what can I say!

Gotta go before I say something stupid. Thought for the week: Keep your face to the sunshine and you can’t see the shadow. Ya’ll have a great week and if we can help, just holler. God Bless.
