Well it has been another busy week here in the Sheriff’s office and let’s get right to it with some housekeeping. I want to apologize to Bob from the Bend Store for the article in the paper last week. The way that I wrote it left some to believe that the intoxicated individual arrested out there last week, came from his store. The fact is that the store was closed and that I just used it as a reference point for the readers. The suspect was arrested about a half mile down the road and had no connection to the store. Sure sorry Bob and please don’t burn my next burger. The sheriff’s office arrested seven individuals on numerous charges from the 24th of this month to the 26th. Mariah Cromeans and Matthew Joe Lopez were arrested by Sheriff Brown for selling narcotics at the Executive Inn. Deputy Barrows and Deputy Stiles arrested Antonio Torres for outstanding warrants during a traffic stop. Sheriff Brown arrested Cody Herd for outstanding warrants out of the City of Lampasas, assisting Lampasas with their warrant round up. Sheriff Brown, Deputy Barrows and Officer Hill arrested John Patrick Adams for Driving While Intoxicated 2nd Offence with an open container. Sheriff Brown and Deputy Stiles arrested Francisco Martinez for driving without a license while investigating a disturbance call and immigration placed a hold on this individual. Dusty Wayne Sutton was arrested by Deputy Stiles and Officer Nobles for Possession of Marijuana < 2 ounces, Possession of Drug Parafinilla and Tampering with Physical Evidence. All of these individuals were arrested and are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. We are currently holding 9 in jail with 6 being held out of county. The jail has been running at full speed with only a few bumps, one of them being plumbing problems. We are currently working to correct a problem with our sewage pipes and have the short term fix in place, with a larger project to be completed within two weeks. We want to thank Commissioner Judkins and his staff for all their assistance and Jackie Shahan from Pecan Valley Hardware and the City of San Saba as well. It is very important that we all work together to ensure that we can keep this jail of ours up and running for as long as safely possible. We have had several opportunities in the past three years but have worked closely with jail standards and the commissioners court and fixed the situations. I am very happy with the working relationship that we have enjoyed with the commissioners court since I have been Sheriff. It is imperative that we all work together, even when we might not agree on everything and we have all been able to do that. The jail and staff are moving forward and we're getting ready for the next opportunity. Well that’s about it for this week. We want to encourage everyone to drive safely, report anything that seems out of the ordinary and to check on your neighbors and make sure that they're all right. Thanks again for all your prayers and you can reach us at 325-372-5551 or 5432.
