We would also like to take a moment and remind all citizens the Sheriff’s Office Safety reminder of
“T.L.C.”, T-take your keys, L-lock your car, C-conceal our hid valuables from site. Some recent firearm
thefts occurred when they were left in unlocked vehicles. Firearm ownership is a cherished right, but with
any right comes responsibility.
Please exercise gun safety, never leave a weapon unsecure in a vehicle.
Montgomery County Sheriff Rand Henderson commends the outstanding teamwork demonstrated to take
these burglars into custody.
