Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office hosts CSI Academy – 21 investigators earn certification

PICHER – For two weeks local law enforcement investigators from 14 different agencies near and far including Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Nevada, and the British Virgin Islands attended Crime Scene Investigator Academy at the Quapaw Marshal’s training facilities in Picher.

Santa Rosa sheriff: 28 vehicle burglaries could have been prevented

NAVARRE — Three recent arrests clear 28 burglary cases in one Navarre neighborhood, according to Santa Rosa Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Rich Aloy. However, he said, the victims could have taken one step to prevent the crimes: lock their car doors.

The Santa Rosa Sheriff’s Office YouTube account has multiple videos depicting the problem.

One video, titled, “Don’t be a target to these criminals in Navarre,” states that since the beginning of 2017, in Navarre, there have been 41 vehicle burglaries, 16 stolen vehicles and seven stolen guns with one thing in common: the victims’ car doors being unlocked.

The same video shows surveillance footage in which a suspect passes up a white truck upon finding the door locked.
