HOUSTON COUNTY: Houston County Sheriff Andy Hughes and members of the Sheriff Investigative Unit and VIce Unit received information on a potentially dangerous situation today.
Sheriff Hughes personally and members of the investigative unit of the department started working the information they were presented with. That information had to be worked in conjunction with out of town and out of state agencies.
After working all day on the information they were presented with. Deputies made contact with suspects this afternoon at the Chevron Station on Montgomery Highway outside Ross Clark Circle. Several marked and unmarked deputies, to include Sheriff Hughes converged on the scene and with the suspects. Several persons were carried to the Houston County Sheriff Criminal Investigation unit for further questioning.
So far, the information the Sheriff Department was presented with is not the exact story as the information they had.
Am I vague? Absoulutely I am. The reason is this could have been major and all information did not develop as the original tip provided. However, the biggest part of this article...the Sheriff and Deputies acted promptly and were on top of what could have been major crime. Their proactiveness and quick response, their investigative efforts, made a huge difference in the case. Had all of the information provided in the tip panned out, the department was on top of it.
Good job guys. To the readers, sorry I can not just spell it...but please take my word...Sheriff Andy Hughes and the deputies did an outstanding job.
The Chevron Station had NOTHING to do with this incident. However the manager came out and made sure we ( Matt and I knew ) we had to get off their property and could not take any pictures or be on their property. Even though I was on empty and needed gas! I had to got to Flying where the gas is FAR - FAR - FAR less expensive than the Chevron!!! With long lense cameras do not have to be on their property...
Make sure you check other stations, gas is far less expensive than the Chevron Stations. Watch the price signs - why pay them so much more when you can just drive across the street often times and save money.
