Crowd seems to boost cash for hospitalized sheriff’s deputy – Salisbury Submit

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office lit 100 or more grills in its parking lot to raise money for employees or charities, but Thursday’s fundraiser for Brian Benfield could top the list of most food sold, Sgt. David Earnhardt said.

Benfield has been hospitalized with COVID-19 for more than a month and is expected to be transferred from the hospital to a long-term care facility. His wife and son also contracted COVID-19 and have since recovered.

To help their colleague, Rowan County Sheriff’s Office staff turned into quick orders Thursday, grilling hot dogs and making sausage sandwiches in the parking lot next to the Rowan County Courthouse. They attracted interested customers and also arranged orders,

“This is probably the biggest we’ve ever made, most of the food we’ve ever sold,” said Earnhardt, Benfield’s manager.

He estimated the fundraiser would cover a large chunk of Benfield’s hospital bills out of pocket, but it wouldn’t nearly fully cover the costs he incurs.

“If one of us is involved in something or needs help, we try to do something for him and to help him as well as possible,” said Earnhardt.

As they watched the line of people buying groceries Thursday, Benfield’s daughter Gracie and father Ned called it “a blessing”.

“Brian made a lot of friends,” said Ned Benfield. “We’re thankful.”

Wayne County Sheriff’s Workplace warns of cellphone rip-off focusing on individuals for cash, threatening arrest

That Wayne County Sheriff’s Office warns residents of scammers posing as lieutenants or other officers to raise money, and even threatens to arrest people if they fail to pay.

Official, the said caller threatened arrest for an alleged violation and asked victims to buy a Green Dot or other type of prepaid card and “deposit the money immediately or risk immediate arrest”.

“Unfortunately, we see a lot of scams like this one year-round, where suspects scare innocent victims into giving money to avoid arrest,” said Undersheriff Mike Jaafar. “It’s a ruse we want to warn people about so they don’t fall for it if it happens to them.”

MPs warned local residents about a similar scam in January.

Regarding this particular scam, officials said people should know:

  • You will never be called by an officer threatening arrest for a violation unless you pay something.

  • Never give money to someone you don’t know personally.

  • Call the police if you continue to receive such harassing calls.

“If in doubt, get the caller’s information and write down the incoming number on your phone in case you need to report this to the police. But I can assure you, no one from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office will call you and ask for cash, ”Jaafar said.

Sheriff’s Workplace posts tips about how you can spot counterfeit cash

The St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office has tips on how to spot counterfeit money after multiple complaints from local residents.

According to Sheriff Bobby Guidroz, these complaints are mostly coming from local truck stop casinos. The fake money was seen in all demonimations.

He says detectives work on several occasions where even the marker pen and counters don’t recognize them.

The sheriff’s office provided a few options to help residents spot fake bills:

FEEL THE BILL – Counterfeit money feels different to real cotton and linen money.
Look at the bill – there are embedded fibers of red and blue. Counterfeit money has no fibers, but some try to print the colors onto the paper. We all deal with money almost every day; Check the color of the bills. Often the forger does not match the colors.

CHECK for security features – in all denominations except $ 1 and $ 2. The easiest way to find a fake $ 5, 10, 20, 50, or 100 dollar bill is to look for the security features. Look for an embedded security thread (a strip of plastic) that runs from top to bottom. Hold the bill up to the light, you will see the strip and print on it. Holding the bill up to a light is another great way to look for a watermark. A watermark with the picture of the person whose portrait is on the bill is on all $ 10, $ 20, 50, and $ 100 bill lines from 1996 and on $ 5 bill lines from 1999.

Notify Authorities – Call your local law enforcement agency if you think you have a fake bill and are not putting yourself at risk.

Guidroz says anyone who receives counterfeit money cannot be reimbursed by law enforcement or a bank, but adds that if they are arrested, the courts can order a reimbursement.

Sheriff’s Duke fifth annual Dynamite Chili Fest raises cash for brand spanking new LEC monument

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX / KJTL) – The Elks Lodge was today where you should be before!

There, the Citizen Alumni Association of the Wichita County’s Sheriffs Office hosted Sheriff Duke’s 5th Annual Dynamite Chili Festival.

The event was attended by 27 stoves, some of which traveled from outside Texoma: Amarillo, Fort Worth, Dallas, and even Telephone, Texas.

The alumni association is raising money to erect memorials for fallen MPs and firefighters in Wichita County outside of the new law enforcement center.

With the aim of raising $ 350,000, organizer Danny Cravens emphasized the importance and how good the chili was.

“It’s all donated money, so events like this make it happen. It was really good chilli, I’ve tried something, something is a little warm, but it’s good, ”said Cravens.

They also had a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle which the winner kindly returned to them directly.

Be on the lookout for more fundraisers the Alumni Association will be running to help achieve its goal, including a golf tournament in April.

Or go straight to the Law Enforcement Center’s new reception to donate!
