Several arrests have been made. Dallas County Sheriff Stan McGahee
would like to thank Grant County and Sheridan Police Department
for their recent assistance with the apprehension of suspects in these
cases.
“The communication and response among our neighbors has been
outstanding. We are appreciative of the assistance and look forward
to continued mutual aid with the surrounding law enforcement
agencies. We’re all on the same team. Reports from the public are
also much appreciated and needed. It takes all of us working together
sometimes to help in these types of cases.” Sheriff McGahee
declared. “With so much rural area in our county, we rely on the good
citizens to report if they see something suspicious in their vicinity.
We have stepped up patrols but we can’t be everywhere at once. The
reports from citizens have been significant to our efforts.
