So here is a new one. I personally just received the text shown here. The link directed me to a Facebook login screen. Problem is, I'm already logged into my Facebook. I wanted to share this because I suspect this to be a new scam and what appears to be the latest way to hand over your Facebook account to a hacker. Please feel free to share this post with others.

We have had a rash of vehicle's being rummaged through last night. A reminder to please take all valuables and medication out of your vehicle and to lock your vehicles and homes. As always, please call us if you see anything that doesn't look right. Thank You

The Rooks County Commissioners voted to place Rooks County in a County Wide Burn Ban this morning. The Ban will be revisited on a weekly basis until conditions improve.

There have been Coyote sightings near some neighborhoods, Typically they are nocturnal, but it is not uncommon to see them in the early mornings. They may prey on a small, unattended pet, but are generally scared of people. Merely seeing one is not reason to call us as they are native wildlife and live amongst us. However, they may be a little WILE. E, there are certain behaviors that are cause for alarm. Specifically: • Coyote carrying box marked “ACME" • Coyote dropping anvil from hot air balloon • Coyote posting signs such as “Detour” or “Free Bird Seed" • Coyote in possession of giant magnet • Coyote in possession of catapult • Coyote detonating explosives/TNT • Coyote launching self with giant crossbow

For those of you wondering what the road conditions are like in the area, this photo was taken at approximately 6:00 am this morning. The photo was taken south of Plainville on US-183 and is the view through the windshield of one of our patrol vehicles. Even though the snow has let up for now, the high wind is causing some whiteout conditions. If you don't have to be on the roads today, we urge you to please, stay home where it's safe.

Please remember that If you live on snow emergency route, to move your vehicle off the street. We are expecting 3 to 5 inches of snow. We would hate to have to tow your vehicle so our plows can get through.

Good afternoon parents of teen drivers! We've recently had a lot of inquiries about the restrictions of teen driver's with certain permits/restrictions. We'd like to direct you the Kansas Department of Health and Environment's website outlining the do's and don'ts of teen driving: Simply click on the type of license your teen driver has, and the website will redirect you the page outlining the restrictions and rules.

Though, as parents, we wished our children would behave better in public.... we'd like to remind everyone that we want children to feel comfortable coming to the police. So please take this PSA into consideration.
