Newton County Sheriff’s Report 3.23.20

PRESS RELEASE — Social distance of 6 feet, no hugs, no handshakes, wash your hands for 20 seconds. Gotta comply but it’s hard on this old man. Let’s all be smart and do what the smart people tell us to do. We will get through all this.

If you feel you need to be tested call 409-550-2536 and you will be interviewed by medical people to see if you meet the criteria to be tested.

We recovered a boat motor and cargo trailer that was stolen from Orange County. Good job Deputy Wonders.

Received a call where a girlfriend cut up another girlfriend’s dress. The lady was referred to the JP to file charges. One mad woman.

We had 6 calls this week where citizens ask us to have a deputy call them. For some reason they would not answer the phone. If we go to the effort to return a call, at least answer the phone. We try!

We have two deputies out with possible dead cows in a man’s pasture. He has a history of livestock abuse. Hope it’s not what the caller thinks it is.

Gotta go. Thought of the week: Never be afraid to try something new. Amateur’s built the Ark; Professionals built the Titanic.

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

PS: Social distance, wash hands often, no hugs, fist bump and elbow bump.
