Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands. That’s dangerous and often tragic. That’s why it was great to see thousands of folks from across the country clean out their medicine cabinets and turn in – safely and anonymously – a record amount of prescription drugs.

Bring in you unused, out dated medications and we will dispose of it through the Take Back Program.

Locations of pickups are The Wright County Sheriff’s Office 125 Court Square, Hartville come to the back glass door and The Ann Short Turner Community Center 205 N. Missouri, Mansfield.

Cooler weather reminds us that winter isn’t far away. It is time to check your vehicles over for winter time driving. You should check your Tires, Lights, Engine fluids. Also have an emergency kit in your car. Put items such as a blanket, gloves, shovel, and a small container of rock salt, flashlight, and some non perishable foods in your vehicle. Also a cell phone charger if you have a cell phone.

If you don’t start out the day with a smile, it’s not too late to start practicing for tomorrow.

Have a great day! Sheriff Glenn Adler

Sheriff’s Office Report

    Hello from the Wright County Sheriff’s Office. Hope everyone is good. The month of May was a busy month. The Sheriff’s Office dispatch received 219 calls for service with 143 of those calls belonging to the Sheriff’s Office. The remainder of the calls was for Hartville, Mansfield and Mtn Grove PD, Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Missouri Department of Conservation.
The calls for the Sheriff’s Office are as follows. 2 Abandon Vehicles, 9 Burglar Alarms, 3 Animal Complaints, 9 Assaults which includes 2 assaults on Deputies, 5 Burglaries, 6 Civil cases, 1 Coroner assist, 10 Domestic’s, 9 Fire/Rescue dispatch, 8 Harassments, 1 Jail Assist, 1 Landlord/ Tenant Dispute, 4 Law Enforcement Assist, 12 Misc Information, 2 Motor Vehicle Accidents, 1 Peace Disturbance, 2 Prowler Calls, 1 call of drugs at a school, 2 Search Warrants, 19 Suspicious Activity, 11 Thefts, 2 Threats, 7 Trespassing, 4 Vandalism’s and 12 Check Wellbeing of a person.
During the month of May the Jail booked in 67 new inmates. We transported 9 to the Department of Corrections that were sentenced.
I would like to remind everyone that during the summer months there is a lot of traffic on our highways. If you are traveling check your vehicle out before you leave. Check things out under the hood such as fluids, battery and fan belts. Then check your tires include tread depth and air pressure. Also check all your lighting is working properly. Remember Buckle Up when you are operating the vehicle.
Watch out for Road Crew with MoDot and the County Road and Bridge. Summer months mean lots of work to our roadways.

The following is State Law.
Upon approaching a stationary emergency vehicle displaying lighted red or red and blue lights, or a stationary vehicle owned by the state highways and transportation commission and operated by an authorized employee of the department of transportation displaying lighted amber or amber and white lights, the driver of every motor vehicle shall:
(1) Proceed with caution and yield the right-of-way, if possible with due regard to safety and traffic conditions, by making a lane change into a lane not adjacent to that of the stationary vehicle, if on a roadway having at least four lanes with not less than two lanes proceeding in the same direction as the approaching vehicle; or
(2) Proceed with due caution and reduce the speed of the vehicle, maintaining a safe speed for road conditions, if changing lanes would be unsafe or impossible.
3. The motorman of every streetcar shall immediately stop such car clear of any intersection and keep it in such position until the emergency vehicle has passed, except as otherwise directed by a police or traffic officer.
This to me is a very important law which helps keeps Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS, MoDot and Tow Truck operators safe. We will be working an enforcement project sometime this summer for this law. I have read too many stories of the above that I listed loosing someone because they were hit. I want everyone to go home safe after work.
Have a good summer. Thanks you so much for all your support to my Office and I.
Until next time be Happy and Positive for yourself and someone else.
Sheriff Glenn Adler

App 50 mailboxes have been reported so far. A caller from just inside Texas County called as well.

    Deputy McCleary was dispatched to the area and he located the vehicle that was reported. He stopped the vehicle and made contact with 2 males in the vehicle. Deputy McCleary obtained a confession and arrested both subjects. One male was 16 years old and a Juvenile, the other male was 17 years of age. Deputy McCleary also located the baseball bat used to beat the mailboxes.

    Joseph Holt was charged in Wright County Circuit Court with Felony 1st Degree Property damage and is being held at the Wright County Jail. His bond is set at $5,000 cash. The Juvenile will be charged through the Juvenile Court System.

    If you have had your mail box damaged around the Mtn Grove area and have not reported it please call the Wright County Sheriff’s Office at 417-741-7576 and report it.

Most of the time we never get a description of a suspect vehicle because it happens so fast and is dark out but this time an observant person got a good description of a vehicle and the Deputy was able to locate it and make arrests. Thank you to the person that called this in. We depend on the publics help.
