Oct. 2

  • A victim came to the Sheriff’s Office and reported her identity stolen, specifically her social security number. The suspect(s) fraudulently used it to obtain jobs and money in California. A few days later the Sheriff’s Office developed a suspect’s name, and the investigation is on-going.

 Oct. 3 

  • A victim of family violence came to the Sheriff’s Office to report the assault. The 38-year-old suspect was named, as was his current location. Two deputies responded to the suspect’s location on FM 2231, where he was interviewed and a follow-up investigation took place. The suspect was then arrested for assault family violence, searched and transported to the jail.
  • National Night Out was held at the Stephens County Law Enforcement Center. The Sheriff’s Office handed out dozens of coloring books and magazines on crime prevention, fighting drug abuse, preventing bullying and other safety and security measures. Other freebies were also given to the children who attended. Thank you to our community for supporting law enforcement and attending on this night.

 Oct. 4

Oct. 6

  • A burglary of a home was reported on FM 578, where the victims reported a total of seven firearms stolen. Forced entry was used. As of Oct. 8, 2017, three of the firearms have been located by the Sheriff’s Office. The investigation is on-going. The sheriff would like to strongly encourage everyone to write down the serial numbers of any firearms and electronic items they own. Store those serial numbers in multiple locations for future reference. It is the best way to get your valuables located by law enforcement and returned.
