Sheriff Butch Anderson has issued a statement to the community to prevent being victimized. Residents are reminded to lock their doors, make sure outside lights are working, not leave ladders outside, and make sure any security cameras on their property are working correctly. “As always if you observe a possible perpetrator or suspicious person do not confront them yourself; be observant to get the best possible description of the person and immediately contact 911 to have law enforcement handle the matter,” said Anderson.
