Sheriff’s Report – Incidents and Arrests
The Livingston County Sheriff’s Department reports several investigations and arrests through the past several weeks.
Some of the incidents include:
June 3rd, property damage was reported in the 10000 block of LIV 237. Someone had driven through a yard. Sheriff Cox says they later learned the person responsible had located the victim and paid for the damages.
June 4th, deputies responded to a report of a toddler found walking outside in a diaper unattended. The deputies located the child, who was found to be safe. They also learned the parent/caretaker had been getting a bottle for the child when the toddler exited the front door. The door has since been fixed so the incident can not happen again.
June 15 at 1:15 a.m. deputies responded to a church camp on Highway 190, where a child was reported missing. Deputies, Zaki, Chillicothe Police, and Missouri State Highway Patrol responded. The area was searched and the young child was found… sleeping in another bunk with a cousin.
