Stolen Items at Deer Camps

We have had 3 thefts at deer camps in the last 2 days to include ATVs/UTVs. Deputies will be paying particular attention to these areas and any off road vehicles being transported in the county. 

We could also use your help. If you have a deer camp it would greatly help our efforts if you would lock up the camps and secure any vehicles. If you live near a deer camp keep your eyes out for any unusual activity. If you see unfamiliar vehicles it helps tremendously to get get the tag numbers. Nosy neighbors are better than ADT most days. 

Please share to spread the word.
