2019 has started off crazy and does not appear to be slowing down for the LCSO. We have had various crimes reported, multiple sex offenses being investigated, stopped a crime spree, assisted several other agencies and continue trying to keep up with investigations and many calls for service.
One case on January 11 we made significant progress on an investigation reported January 05 as a possible child abuse. That case has turned into multiple counts of child sex offenses and incest violations. The victim is a very young child and the suspect is a juvenile teenager. The suspect was detained on January 11 and is now in juvenile holding facility. The Child Advocacy Center and Juvenile Officer assisted during this investigation.
We have requested multiple services be offered to the family and victim. This has been and will continue to be lengthy and time consuming investigation. Our thoughts are focused with the healing and help for the victim and family.
