The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) has reached a new milestone on Facebook. Over 5,000 of our friends and followers have “Liked” us on Facebook! Between our website (www.livcoso.org) and our office Facebook page we are able to work with the media and public to share important area information, incidents and arrest updates, and even help members in the community locate their lost pets.
Thanks to you, we have been successful at capturing 164 of our Most Wanted fugitives strictly based on TIPS from the public. This saves our office significant amounts of time which we utilize to help many other people.
Just in the last few days Nicholas, Levi Reed, 29, was apprehended on Livingston and Carroll County arrest warrants. The Livingston County warrant was for alleged Statutory Sodomy and Mr. Reed had been a fugitive since December 2016. Tips helped law enforcement track Reed down to a location in Liberty where he was taken into custody. On June 06, Sherry Lynn Hicks, 51, was arrested by Brookfield authorities within a few hours of being posted on our website and social media notifying the public of the arrest warrant for alleged class D felony Stealing. This case also provided numerous TIPS to the LCSO on the whereabouts of Ms. Hicks.
We very much appreciate our friends and followers. We love our communities and county. We appreciate your support in making Livingston County and surrounding areas a safer place.
Sheriff Steve Cox
