Time once again to start thinking ahead to the snow storm that is being predicted to hit us 4-13-2018 and last through the weekend. If your vehicles are parked on the snow routes in Fort Pierre and there is over 2 inches of snow, the chances are good that it will cost you at least $50.00 for the ticket and considerably more if it is towed. Please don't park on the snow routes until it has been plowed curb to curb.
SD Hwy 1806 north of Fort Pierre is closed between Cut Across Rd and mile marker 202, while the Sheriff’s Office investigates an accident. Please plan an alternate route.
THE CITY OF FORT PIERRE IS STILL UNDER EMERGENCY SNOW ROUTES It is still snowing folks! There is more then 2 inch additional accumulation of snow, and the Snow Routes will be enforced and tickets will be written. They are $50.00 each, and your vehicle may be towed at your expense.

We recently received information of a SCAM involving people posing as the Internet Crime Complaint Center. They are sending emails stating you are a victim of an internet crime and are entitled to restitution. They email you a form to fill out and send to them. When you download the form it is infected with malware that steals your personal information. Delete these emails and do not download anything or reply to them. These emails look officail but are not.

The Stanley County Sheriff's Office recovered some hand tools yesterday that were in the possession of an intoxicated individual who was trying to sell them.

It is that time of year again in South Dakota where the temps are dipping below zero and the roof sewer vents are freezing. If the vents freeze shut, deadly gas can’t escape and may enter your home. Please check your roof vents, and notify your neighbors if theirs are frozen. It is also a good idea to replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for the winter. The Stanley County Sheriff’s Office wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year!
Last week the Stanley County Sheriff's Office recovered a large amount of beer that appeared to have been possibly stolen. As of this date we have not been able to determine where it came from. If you have any information please call our office at 605-223-7792 or Dispatch at 605-773-7410.
The Stanley County Sheriff’s Office has knowledge of a packaging scam that has been discovered lately in Fort Pierre. The scam starts with an email that indicates you can make big money from your home by just receiving packages, and sending them to a different person and address. After replying to the email, they get the person to believe they are employees of the company, and talk the person into sending them personal information such as driver’s license info as well as photo, phone, and email information. The new employee receives forms and phone calls from individuals convincing them that they are legit. They promise to pay $20.00 for every box that is received and shipped by the person being scammed. They also email new labels with different names and addresses to send the packages to. We believe that the items are being purchased on the internet by fraudulent means by the scammers. No money or wages are ever received, and before the retailer can discover they are victims, the product had gone through several different locations and is not recovered. While the person being scammed has not been asked to pay anything out of pocket, they have been used to further a theft. Please check with the South Dakota Attorney General's Office before applying for this type of job on line. Call 1-800-300-1986. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is a scam.
Missing in the area of Hwy 63 near the Cheyenne School. If located please contact the Sheriff’s Office 605-223-7792 or Pierre Police Dispatch 605-773-7410.
Everyone at the Sheriff's Office would like to wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Today we took a report of a person who was tricked into thinking they won a big cash prize from Publishers Clearing House. It may be too late to recover anything for this person. 1. Never give any money to people you do not personally know. Especially someone who calls you on the phone or sends you an email. 2. You are never required to pay money to someone before collecting a prize. 3. If it seems to good to be true it probably is. 4. If you have any questions please call your local law enforcement.
