Newton CountySheriff’s Weekly Report 6.8.20

PRESS RELEASE — This is going to be a short and non-Billy Rowles Sheriff’s report. Very busy this Monday morning.

We worked a very complicated homicide over the weekend. Feud between some young people lead to shots fired, and a man being run over and killed. One side saying murder and on saying self-defense. To complicate things even more, which County (Jasper or Newton) did the death take place in. Sheriff Newman’s office and we are going to figure it out.

We recovered a stolen vehicle in the Deweyville area. Good job Deputy Franklin. By the way, please pray for Deputy Franklin’s family as he lost his mom over the weekend.

Sorry so short but gotta go. Thought for the week. Good judgement comes from experience and a lot of that comes from bad judgement. Ya’ll have a good week and if we can help, just holler. God Bless.
