Newton County Sheriff’s Report 2.3.2020

PRESS RELEASE — So sick of all this impeachment junk.  Let the president alone and start doing what we pay you to do. Let’s see what’s going on here in Newton County.

We received a call in the Deweyville area about a very intoxicated man. Seems he was tearing up his house and swinging a machete around. That kind of call makes you pucker up. It all ended ok.

Received a call from a lady whose camera was showing her that people were breaking into her house. The thugs were gone when we got there. We got some information on what was stolen before we saw the pictures of the bad guys. They came back again. Deputy White and Deputy Blueitt put 2 and 2 together and found out who the thugs were. They went to their house and found some of the stolen items. After executing a search warrant, more stolen items were found.

Louisiana officers contacted us to see if we knew a certain guy who they caught breaking into a home in Louisiana. It was one of the guys on camera here. After a two Parish pursuit, they caught him. We get him after Louisiana finishes with him. Great job to all that helped. Cameras work.

Aunt was keeping dog for other family members. Dog got out and was run over. Owner (family member) came over to Aunt’s house and busted out windows. Makes you wonder about helping people out.

Got to go. Thought for the week: We are all born mad, some remain so. Ya’ll have a great week and if we can help, just holler. God Bless.
