Newton County Sheriff’s Report 4.13.20

PRESS RELEASE  — Hope all is well with everyone. I’m like you, I’ll be so glad when all this COVID-19 is over and gone. Let’s see what’s been going on.

We have had one employee tested and we are waiting on the results. We are praying for a negative result.

All the teenagers out of school and bored means extra work on us. We have had several reports of kids riding ATV’s and acting a fool. I’ve offered a steak dinner to any officer who catches them. Mom & Dad ain’t gonna be happy.

Received a call where a 2-year-old child fell in a pool. When he was pulled out, he was unresponsive. They got him breathing again and appeared to be ok. When I get names of the heroes, I will let you know. More to come.

Gotta go. Have Commissioners court (via phone) this morning. Thought for the week: A little gray hair is a small price to pay for all this wisdom. Please remember social distancing and wash your hands. Y’all have a great week and stay healthy. Y’all need anything just holler. God bless!
