Sheriff Steve Cox




1.      On September 14, we were summoned to the south west portion of the county regarding a suicidal person.  Investigation resulted in the deputy taking an adult into custody for self protection and subsequently seeking professional help for that person with assistance from the family.


2.      On September 14, Joel T. Kellison, 35, Chillicothe, surrendered to our office as he was wanted on a parole violation warrant.

c.       Joel Tracy Kellison, 35, Chillicothe, on a parole violation warrant.


4.      A local citizen recently was contacted on an apparent scam.  The intended victim even spoke with the criminal on the telephone and noted the foreign accent of the suspect.  Information was forwarded to the appropriate agency.


5.      On September 18, we received a report of a lost or stolen white colored Pyrenees dog about 1 year old from a location on Liv 387.  Investigation continues.


6.      On September 19, we investigated a report of a vicious dog in Mooresville which was reported to have knocked a young girl off her bicycle, clawed her but did not bite the child.  The deputy located the animal owner and he retrieved his dog with understanding it needed to be restrained.  A report was submitted to the Livingston County Health Center as required by law.


7.      On 09-20 we investigated 2 reports from an out of county resident that her child was with the father at his residence and the child was not being properly cared for.  Both times the deputy reported finding no evidence to support the mothers claim.  The report notes both parents are involved in a Court custody dispute.
