On Monday morning, April 11, around 10 a.m., Sheriff Burby and Newton County Sheriff’s Deputies recovered a stolen ATV in Bon Wier.  Sgt. James Hopson and Corporal Keith Franklin recovered the ATV and found that the ATV was stolen out of Merryville, Louisiana.  Sheriff Burby stated that he is tired of seeing thieves and drug dealers stealing from hard-working residents.  He said, “We are cracking down on crime in Newton County.  We are going after the criminals.”  The crime is still under investigation.

    There are a lot of drugs and illegal activity in Bon Wier, Tx. Would be great it it got all cleaned up. My grandfather would be proud as he has lived there for over 50 years and it’s just got worse and worse. Please do something as the last couple of sheriffs has not done anything about the situation. Thank you.
