The agency issued an alert on Thursday, Sept. 22 regarding Leonardtown resident Robert Alan Mandley, Jr., 32, after he went AWOL from his program earlier this month after an arrest for first-degree assault.

    Far-right Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has been drawing a great deal of criticism from Democrats — as well as some Never Trump conservatives — for sending two planes of migrants, many of them from Venezuela, to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. DeSantis critics have been saying that it wasn’t hard to figure out why he chose Martha’s Vineyard for his political stunt: Massachusetts, home of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, is a deep blue state — and DeSantis, during an election year, wanted to show off his ability to “own the liberals.” On Monday, September 19 in Bexar County, Texas — where the flight of migrants originated before going to Florida and later, Martha’s Vineyard — Sheriff Javier Salazar announced that he would be opening a criminal investigation of DeSantis. And since then, according to Vice’s Paul Blest, Salazar’s office has been inundated with “threats.” Salazar, at a press conference, told reporters he believes the migrants were “lured” to Martha’s Vineyard under “false pretenses” in violation of both county and federal law. In a brochure that Popular Information posted on September 19, migrants were...

Over 170 of these stops were to assist motorists or to issue warnings for violations. Awareness and education to citizens about the dangers of drug abuse and impaired driving was a main focus of the two-day...
    Law enforcement officials told the station the homeowner feared for his life and fired several shots at Jennings, who died at the scene. According to WCPO, the homeowner was watching TV when Jennings came in, and officials said the homeowner dialed 911 as the incident was unfolding.

The sheriff's office on Wednesday morning didn't immediately respond to TheBlaze's request for comment on the apparent discrepancy.Anything else?Other neighbors dialed 911 after the shots were fired, WCPO said.

Interestingly, Salazar also said that investigators have not been able to locate a single migrant who was offered the Martha's Vineyard trip but turned it down.

    Nearly 40 years after a woman was found dead in a Northern California river, authorities said they solved the cold case thanks to the clothes she was wearing when she was killed. As deputies prepared to arrest the suspect, 64-year-old Eric David Drummond, he died by suicide in Sierra County, the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday. Drummond had been spurned by Joette Smith, 33, when he asked her on a date shortly before her 1983 killing, and he was first identified as a suspect five years later, the department said. His DNA matched a recent profile taken from Smith’s clothing. “While Drummond will never face criminal charges … the Sheriff’s Office is confident that the evidence in this case would support a conviction of Drummond for the murder of Joette Smith,” Lt. Patrick Dimick said in a news release. Business Brink’s heist mystery: Questions arise about a timeline that ‘doesn’t make any sense’ A 298-mile drive in 2 hours and 4 minutes?

    The foot soldiers of the top cop in Los Angeles County are going after his enemies in what critics describe as his most brazen, personal crusade yet. And it may be blowing up in his face. A day after Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department investigators searched the homes of a county supervisor, the local transit authority, and a member of the Sheriff’s Civilian Oversight Commission, a local judge ordered the agency to stop part of its search. Superior Court Judge William Ryan wrote late on Thursday that the department must immediately cease its search of computers seized from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Office of the Inspector General. Ryan also ordered the department to disclose what hard drive imaging may have been done, by whom, and who has seen the material in question. The decision, which went public on Friday, came after attorneys for the agency’s inspector general challenged the warrant, which critics say was part of a bogus investigation of crimes that do not exist. But perhaps more disturbing to the local police reform set is that two women’s lives have...

    A dispatcher from the Fremont County Sheriff's Office had a brilliant idea. The Fremont County Sheriff's Office was scheduled to conduct an unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) exercise, and the dispatcher suggested searching for the dog during the training. "Today the FCSO UAS team took part in a training mission with a humanitarian twist," the Fremont County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post. "Farrah the Golden Retriever was lost several months ago when the car she was in was involved in an accident." "Today, the FCSO drone was deployed in the area where she was last seen," the sheriff's office stated. "Within minutes, Deputies spotted her using the drone's infrared camera." Taylor said of her tearful reunion, “She stuck her head through the barbed wire fence, and then the next minute she’s laying in my lap and I was like, ‘I got her!’” "I just started crying," Salazar said. Salazar helped lure Farrah with chicken. Being out in the harsh conditions of the Colorado wilderness caused Farrah to lose half her weight. The beloved golden retriever also had...

    BEN LOMOND — Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office investigators believe they have solved a nearly four-decade-old cold case that left a popular San Lorenzo Valley restaurant owner dead. Joette Smith  Recent developments in forensic technology allowed detectives to confirm a link to a long-held suspected murderer in the case, authorities announced Wednesday. The case stems from March 28, 1983, when the body of Joette Marie Smith was found floating in the San Lorenzo River near Woodland Drive. The popular 33-year-old owner and operator of the Buffalo Gals restaurant was determined in a subsequent autopsy to have died of strangulation. Smith was last seen late the previous night at Henflings bar and grill. In news articles shortly after her death, the Omaha, Nebraska, native was described by friends as “kind-hearted, old-fashioned, generous, giving and a friend to everyone.” It was not until 1988 that the Sheriff’s Office first settled on suspected killer Eric David Drummond, a man with an “extensive history of violent crimes” that included sexual assault convictions in California and Nevada, according to an agency press release.

    REDWOOD CITY — Three San Mateo County criminal attorneys are suing the county sheriff’s office, alleging that deputies have been surveilling written communications between attorneys and jail inmates without proper warning or notice, according to a US district court complaint. The complaint — filed in the US District Court of Northern California by attorneys Curtis Briggs, Robert Canny and Matthew Murrillo —  alleges that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s office violated the First and Sixth amendment rights of inmates when it updated its inmate communications system, allowing deputies to comb through privileged communications between attorneys and inmates of the county’s two jails. The complaint says the sheriff’s office gave no notice or warning that it had the ability to look through private communications between attorneys and inmates, making it nearly impossible to have private mail between inmates and their attorneys. Ara Jabagchourian, who is representing the three attorneys in court, said the sheriff’s office also could have implemented a feature to block the review of confidential attorney-client messages but did not do so. The San Mateo County Sheriff’s office could...

    Authorities are warning residents in the region of a new phone scam from a person pretending to be a deputy. Putnam County Sheriff Kevin McConville said in the last couple of days, several county residents have reported receiving phone calls from a man impersonating a member of the Sheriff’s Office.  The man has been calling residents, saying he is “Sergeant Jason Cooke” from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office at 3 County Center in Carmel, the sheriff's office said. The caller tells the person they are facing legal consequences for failing to comply with a prior or current criminal matter and that they are required to post monetary bail in lieu of being arrested, the department said.
