The LCSO has been extremely busy with all types of work from Calls for Service, Investigations, Court, Assisting Other Agencies, Prisoner Transports and Extraditions, dealing with multiple persons intoxicated on methamphetamine, dealing with hostile people, and many other statutory obligations. It was a week when we could have easily used 10 or more additional deputy sheriffs on staff.

Extradition of John B. Carey, 24, Colorado was extradited from El Paso County, Colorado and booked into the Daviess Dekalb Regional Jail on Livingston County arrest warrant for alleged felony Property Damage-1st Degree.

The LCSO has had quite a bit of trouble with vehicle breakdowns on transports. One car overheated and was towed from near the DDRJ to local repair shop for repairs. Another patrol vehicle broke down due to over-heating and was repaired at an area shop and then used for a transport and overheated again. Repair shop reported the new device put on the car was apparently faulty and replaced free of charge. On August 09 an employee was extraditing a prisoner from Clay County and that different patrol vehicle broke down. A local tow company took another patrol vehicle to the employee and returned our broken down car to a local repair shop. We had two other patrol vehicles each have 1 tire ruined due to dangerous items in the roadway such as large staples/nails. The LCSO actively works on preventative maintenance on our patrol vehicles in attempt to avoid just these problems. Some of our vehicles have over 150,000 miles. We appreciate the help from the local towing services and repair shops.

As of Friday afternoon the LCSO has 22 people in custody at the Daviess Dekalb Regional Jail, 4 of which are female detainees.
