10:47 p.m. — An employee at Perdue advised a truck was in a ditch at Cosby and Clark roads and was blocking the roadway.

8:39 a.m. —Brian Hill reported a large hole in the roadway at Sycamore and Oak streets. He advised he hit it and busted his front tire. The street department was contacted and the hole was filled.



12:17 a.m. — A caller at 2213E 300S said someone had stolen beef from her freezer in the past month. The scene was investigated.


1:18 p.m. — A caller reported a car was floating in the West Fork of the White River. Deputies found a minivan on the east side of the river, but there was nothing to suggest anyone was around the van. The van was too deep in the river for a wrecker to tow, so it will be moved when the water level lowers.


Janette Marie Russell, 30, Washington, was arrested by Daviess County Sheriff’s deputies Friday on a failure to appear warrant. She was being held at the Daviess County Security Center without bond.

Ashton Wagler, 19, Montgomery, was arrested by state police Saturday for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and minor consumption. He was released on $4,000 bond.
