  • If you have teenage children, you should be interested in this event.

    Some people, including myself, might think or at one time thought "Not my kid. They would NEVER do that...." Listen folks, I've learned that teenagers today are faced with things that we NEVER had to deal with. The only way to try to ensure that your teens don't get themselves into situations that have life long consequences is to arm yourself with knowledge of what they are doing when they're away from you or while they're in their rooms.

    If you have a teenager, come to this informational forum and let us pass on information that might help you. But even if you can't, and MOST OF ALL, parents.....Stop being friends and be parents.....self included of course!

  • Anyone missing a large mix breed German Shepard looking dog in the Rodger's Creek area? It is a male and is super people friendly. However, he is not cat friendly, and he is trying to eat my rabbits. I have goats as well, so in the morning, I will be calling animal control. I would like to find his owner before that happens though.

  • FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Sheriff Stacy Nicholson releases the following information:

    Gilmer County Sheriff’s Office has, on Monday April 13, 2015, arrested and terminated a Detention Officer, Josh Posey.

    Sheriff’s Detectives have been investigating multiple burglaries for approximately 2 weeks in which Neal Posey has been charged. During the course of the burglary investigation, the Detectives learned that Neal Poesy was an uncle of a Sheriff’s Office Detention Officer, Josh Posey. As the case developed and the Detectives learned more about the case, the need arose to conduct an interview with Josh about the case. During this interview, Josh made a false statement to the Detectives. Josh was at that time placed on administrative leave with pay until the rest of the case could be pursued. Josh also admitted he had made a false statement to Gilmer Deputies on a prior incident involving an investigation of a suspicious vehicle. This case also involved his uncle, Neal Posey.

    On Monday, Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Josh Posey, charging him with making a false statement. He was arrested and subsequently terminated. Josh Posey was processed and booked into the Gilmer County Detention Center on Monday and directly after posted bond.

    Neal Posey (Josh’s uncle) remains in the Gilmer County Detention Center. Detectives are still actively investigating his involvement in possibly more burglaries.

    Sheriff Nicholson states, “This is very disappointing to me as well as my staff. I make a point to give a speech to all new employees when I swear them in and warn them that even though they are beginning work with the Sheriff’s Office, they are not above the law and in fact can get themselves into more trouble sometimes than if they were regular citizens. We have high standards within the Sheriff’s Office and no matter how painful it may be, we intend to keep them high to maintain the trust of the citizens of Gilmer County.”
