Sheriff Willis Blackwell would like to remind the citizens of Shelby County to be sure to lock your vehicles at home as well as when you are away. Over the past few months we have been working several burglaries where the vehicles that were locked were left alone and the vehicles that were unlocked had items stolen out of them. Don't make it easy for the thieves. We are living in desperate times where some people would rather steal than work for a living while they supply their drug habit. If anyone has any information in regards to the burglaries or if anyone has been approached to purchase items from someone please call the Sheriff's Office at 936-598-5600.
