ATTN: Anneta Community! The GCSO, KSP, and other agencies will be conducting traffic Safety Checkpoints in your area at approved locations throughout your neighborhood this evening (July 10). We will be looking for impaired drivers and traffic violators, as well as targeting high drug complaint locations. For a list of approved locations please contact the Sheriff at (270) 259-3024 during normal business hours.

Please share this post. Evidently, someone is making phone calls claiming to be LT Jarrod Mudd with the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office and telling them they have a warrant for their arrest. Additionally, the imposter calls saying that you missed a court date and were subject to a fine. They then tell you to go to a local business to obtain a money card and send it to another location. THIS IS A SCAM!!! Neither LT Mudd, nor anyone at the GCSO would ever ask a citizen to obtain a money card to cover a fine or a warrant. Please do not give any personal data or banking information over the phone unless you are 100% sure you know with whom you are speaking. If you ever have a question about a phone call you receive from anyone at this office, do not hesitate to call us at (270) 259-3024.

Just wanted to let everyone know that the phones were down at the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office for most of the day. Comcast advised that they had a server down that effected customers nationwide. Please note that we still provide services at the office during regular business hours. However, as always, if you need a police response or need to talk to a deputy you may call Central Dispatch at (270) 259-0303 on the non-emergency line or 9-1-1 in case of an emergency. Thanks for your patience.

Grayson County Sheriff’s Office News Release Millwood Man Facing 40 To 400 Years In Prison Date of Release: May 16th , 2018 Contact: Sheriff Norman Chaffins Grayson County Sheriff 44 Public Square Leitchfield, KY 42754 (270) 259-3024 (LEITCHFIELD, KY)- Millwood man and Grayson County resident, James Armes, age 36, has been indicted by a federal grand jury on multiple counts of Production of Child Pornography, multiple counts of Distribution of Child Pornography, several counts of Possession of Child Pornography. Armes was indicted by the Grayson County Grand Jury in 2017 on 3 counts of Sexual Abuse 1st and 2 counts of Sodomy 1st. Upon Armes’ initial arrest, video images of him sodomizing a 10-month old baby were discovered on his phone. This evidence was turned over to federal authorities where additional child porn images were revealed which led to the federal indictments. Armes faces up to 400 years in federal prison if found guilty on each count. Additionally, he faces up to 40 years to life on the Grayson County indictments. This investigation began by a GCSO deputy who simply looked beyond the warrant. The deputy was alerted by a family member that child porn images were on his phone and the investigation launched from there. The case was turned over to our GCSO detective and retired FBI agent, Dennis Dvorjak. Det. Dvorjak consulted with federal authorities and the decision was made to turn over all evidence to the FBI and pursue charges federally. “A sexual predator who would have, no doubt, continued to prey on our children was removed from the streets of Grayson County. The FBI’s investigation will help keep it that way. The images on his phone were some of the most vile and disgusting images we have ever had to view. Monsters like James Armes should NEVER be allowed to walk our streets again.”-Sheriff Norman Chaffins #400YearsIsNotEnough#ScumOfTheEarth

Grayson County 5th Graders ROCK!!!! Great honor to take these Clarkson kiddos out for lunch after they wrote the best essays on the importance of being drug and violence free. Great job Breanna, Maycee, Tate, and Sydney!

What an honor it was to present my Deputy, Rance Whobrey and Ofc. Keith Harrell with the GCSO/LPD Lifesaving Award for his actions on February 25, 2018. You won’t see it on the 6 o’clock news, but acts like this occur everyday in America by our men and women that wear the badge. Dpty. Whobrey saved a man’s life that was resisting arrest. He could have very easily put the cuffs on and let the cards fall where they may. If he had, the man would be dead! Instead, he retrieved a GCSO tourniquet from his cruiser while Ofc. Harrell applied pressure and stopped the bleeding long enough to be transported for trauma care. The doc said a minute longer of bleeding he would have surely died! Thank you for your dedicated service to Grayson County, Dpty. Whobrey and Ofc. Keith Harrell!

We now have a name! Thanks to Judge Kevin Henderson and the fiscal court for upgrading us. It is much better than the old “County Government” letters that kept falling off! Shout out also to Steve Minton of Infinity Signs and Grafix for the great work in design and labor!

This is NOT Grayson County, KY. This was investigated by Gwinnett County, GA authorities already and it is being recirculated. AGAIN, this is NOT our schools.

“This is Sheriff Norman Chaffins. This message is being disseminated with the support of every law enforcement agency in this county and the Grayson County school system. Since Monday, Feb. 19, 2018, law enforcement has investigated six incidents involving threats to our schools and students. Of these six incidents, two of them were unfounded, and four have resulted in multiple criminal charges, ranging from misdemeanor to felony offenses punishable with up to five years in prison. We want every Grayson County citizen and student to know that we will aggressively investigate every threat we receive until we find out who's behind it. If your child jokes about a threat, we will not think it's funny. We know that we do not yell "Bomb!" in an airport. We know that we don't scream "Fire!" in a movie theater. And in our current climate in our schools, we do not post, share, blog or say anything that threatens or menaces our children or school staff in any way. If anyone is found to be behind any of these threats, not only will they face disciplinary action from the school, but they will face criminal action by law enforcement and prosecution to the fullest extent allowed by law. The safety and security of our kids is the number one priority of every officer in this county. We will go above and beyond when it comes to investigating complaints of threats to our students or staff. We encourage our parents to talk to your kids about these threats and the consequences that goes along with making them. Most importantly, we encourage you to emphasize to them that if they see or hear something to say something. When law enforcement, our school system and our community work together, everyone is safer. Thank you, and God bless."

Enough is Enough!!! In order to put a stop to Larry Poole’s scamming of our citizens, I need victims to come into the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office and give a statement. It appears that he is still at it! I will need your name, contact number and a brief statement about your interaction with him. As much as WE know about him, there are still some elderly folks and others who do not have social media who may be HIS next victim. The only way we stop that from happening is if people come forward. Thank you and feel free to share this post. Sheriff Chaffins

Alive at 25

Here are some more photos of Hannah Abell. We pulled them off her Facebook page. Notice she is followed by 837 people. I am certain one of them knows where she is. The "FOUND SAFE" photo was from a previous outing. She is still missing.

This is a picture of Hannah Abell that was reported missing by her mother on May 27th. We did not release a photo or the details of her missing because we were following up on leads to her whereabouts. She has not been seen by her mother since April 26, 2017. Hannah left on her own will and took clothes and a mattress with her according to her mother. This is the only picture her mother was able to provide. She is believed to be staying with her boyfriend somewhere in the Louisville area. According to her mother, Hannah has done this multiple times. Once again, even though she is gone of her own free will, we will continue looking for her until she is found safe. Sheriff Norman Chaffins
