An outbuilding in Wheeling was searched for possible stolen property with the consent of the Wheeling resident. No stolen items were found. Investigation continues.
A recent investigation into possible child endangerment was unfounded and evidence supports no criminal violation took place.

We received information from the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail that on the evening of January 01 two male Livingston County detainees got into a fight. One man was sent to the hospital for examination and was soon returned to custody while a criminal report is being sent to the Daviess County Prosecuting Attorney for consideration of charges on the other man for assault.
One late night New Years Eve prowler was caught and found to be very unhappy on New Years Day. A large owl was found inside the chicken coop at Sheriff Cox’s property. A photo of the culprit is on this press release. The owl and chickens were released unharmed.
