The Office of the Sheriff is seeking information regarding a malicious destruction of property that took place earlier today, on Devers Branch Rd. in Centreville.
A large, charcoal gray, lifted, with black-out windows truck was caught on video driving through and damaging both county and private property. We understand the image quality is low but ask that you help us in trying to identify this individual.
Sheriff Gary Hofmann advises “we understand it is ‘cool’ to have fun in the snow; however, it is NOT cool to damage county roadways, ditches, farm fields, and private property. This goes beyond having fun in the snow. The best thing this truck driver could do is to contact us directly so the damages can be remedied before they must be criminally charged.”
