Tales from the Rural Patrol

(Editor’s note: Factual information for ‘Tales’ is provided by the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office. All persons listed are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Charges can be amended or dismissed.)

*Publisher’s Note: For decades, Illinois Valley News has published our unique version of the log entries from Josephine County Sheriff’s Office. Tales from the Rural Patrol kept the community informed and doled out public floggings via satire. Technology has changed the process. Log entries with the new JCSO reporting system are now limited to citations and arrests.

Monday, April 1
*Neven Shadoe was nabbed on a Jackson County warrant for failure to appear for charges of manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance.
*Corey Daniel, aka Michael Germany, added to his jacket when he was detained on a Grants Pass PD failure to appear warrant on a criminal trespassing charge and was granted a stay at the JoCo jail.
*Devan Larue was cited in lieu of arrest for failure to register as a sex offender.

Tuesday, April 2
*Nickolas Eugene Stephens was detained at taser point after a report of an altercation between Stephens and a man who let him move into his house, but then changed his mind. The reporting person admitted to slapping Stephens after he refused to leave. He was advised of eviction process, and Stephens was arrested on a warrant for a probation violation for a weapons offense.

Wednesday, April 3
*A 54 year-old man was pinned underneath a loaded livestock trailer after his Chevy pickup collided with a Dodge Dually, which was towing the trailer. A call to Mercy Flights was cancelled after the patient was extracted and deemed in stable condition. Patrick Eugene Pierce was cited to appear at the JoCo Circuit court on failure to appear for a traffic offense.

Thursday, April 4
*Tyson Adams was arrested in a plaza on Redwood Avenue and lodged without bail on a warrant out of Maricopa County, Arizona. The manager of the Lucky Duck would like him trespassed indefinitely from the premises. I guess it wasn’t his lucky day.
