We have had a rash of stolen ATVs, UTVs and trailers stolen in the area of US 45 N, between I-24 and Tunnel Hill Rd, during the early morning hours. Residents are encouraged to lock all of their equipment up. It is also strongly advised, that if you have not already done so that you record the serial number and VIN number of all of your equipment. If anyone has any information regarding this matter, please contact the Johnson County Sheriff's Office at (618)658-8264.

If you have a friend or a loved one (that lives in Johnson County) that is suffering from Alzheimer's or any other condition that affects their thought process that makes them prone to wander off or get lost, we would encourage you to check into a service we provide called Care Trak.

It is National Telecomunicators Week aka Dispatchers. They are part of our family that are never seen but always heard. They are our lifeline and yours. (not pictured, Joey P. Apparently he is not into selfies like the rest of them 😉)

**Update** Old 146 Loop has been reopened. **Attn.** We are asking that all motorists avoid Old Route 146 Loop near Honeysuckle Ln. We are currently handling an accident. Please seek alternative routes, until further notice.

Another great job done by our department today. KY State Police was involved in a pursuit which crossed over into IL. Also involved in pursuit was IL State Police, Metropolis PD, Massac County Sheriff's Dept, Vienna PD and us. Our Sheriff was able to stop the vehicle and apprehend the subjects safely. Great job everyone!!!

We received a pie from this sweet lady yesterday representing Autumn Ridge for National Pie (3.14) day. Thank you again!!! Everyone enjoyed it.

It's tax season again. There are more and more IRS scams being called in. This actually happens year round but more often during tax season. Read this and there is information of where your information from these calls can be turned into.

FREE Hunter Safety Course. This usually fills up pretty quick once I post it so you will want to call very soon.

**Immediate Job Opening** The Johnson County Sheriff's Department currently has an immediate opening for a full time officer. Applicants must hold a current certification with the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board. Resumes may be turned in, in person at the Johnson County Sheriff's Department, or mailed to P.O. Box 546 Vienna, IL, 62995.

FYI These people were asked to leave Johnson County because they are trying to scam out citizens. If they do come to you residence please contact us at 618-658-8264

FYI Avoid Tunnel Hill Rd if at all possible. It is very slick as other side roads in the northern part of the county probably are too.

On behalf of the Johnson County Sheriff's Department, we want to express our deepest condolences to the family, both blood and brother/sisterhood of Buncombe Fire Chief, Sue Davis. May you rest in peace.
