Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Looks like the Coronavirus has spiked back up. Mask and safe distance are back in order. Let’s see what’s been going on.

Orange Police Department arrested the third person involved in the attempted ATM heist in Burkeville. Big thanks goes out for all the help down there.

We executed a search warrant on Private Road 6008 in the Bon Wier area. Gary Marley Johns was arrested for 5 counts of Possession of Child Pornography. Officers of the office of the Attorney General Child Exploitation unit were fun to work with.

A man was working on his vehicle, minding his own business when a man came on his property. The trespasser started making threats and getting stupid. He is now in jail for Terroristic Threat and being stupid.

Wife came home full of alcohol and meth. She started beating out the windows. She cut her right forearm. Instead of being home she went to hospital.

We have had a couple deer camps broken into in the last week or so. If you put out game cameras it would sure help us.

Gotta go! It’s Monday morning and it’s already crazy. Thought for the week: It’s not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived.
