Deeds: Deputies got busy New Year’s Eve

January 4, 2014

The activity level for the Sheriff’s Office ramped up a bit starting New Year’s Eve, but the Granbury Police Department had a somewhat slower pace.

Sheriff Roger Deeds said that by 8 a.m. on New Year’s Day, the number of people incarcerated in the Hood County Jail was 206, with 33 new book-ins over a 48-hour time frame.

“Once the sun went down on New Year’s Eve, things really got busy,” Deeds said. “(There were) 17 total in the holding cells. So we had a very active night in law enforcement.”

The sheriff said his investigators are working on a sexual assault case. Deputies and police officers dealt with one conventional assault, three DWI arrests, five possession of controlled substances and one possession of marijuana. There were also three arrests for having no valid drivers’ license.

There seemed to be lighter activity overall within the Granbury city limits, although there were two theft arrests from Walmart.

“The New Year was relatively quiet,” said Deputy Chief Alan Hines of the Granbury Police Department, who noted that he was awaiting some reports Thursday morning. “But from what I have seen so far it was basically a slow night.”
