Dry conditions are leading to more brush fires. A fire at County Roads p-32 and p-39 around 7:30 last night was brought under control by firefighters, another brush fire at Highway 30 and County Road p-30 was handled Saturday by Kennard fire crews.
Also on the Washington County Sheriff’s Activity summary just released this morning – a scam in the 1400 block of County Road p-15 ends in the victims loss of money deposited into an account. You’re advised to always double check before you have financial dealings with someone you do not know. If you have questions or concerns about possible scams, you can always call your closest law enforcement agency.
It’s always best to let someone know if you’re headed out for the evening. A missing person report in the 3300 block of County Road p-38 included a helicopter search of the area. The woman reported missing advised that she had gone to play Bingo with a friend.
Those are just a few of the matters on Sheriff Mike Robinson’s report for the weekend.
