Deputy's finalizing paperwork today for formal charges against a Texas man who is alleged to have struck a parked car and other property as he left the scene yesterday afternoon.  Driver was subsequently arrested by Sherman County Deputy's for DUI and leaving the scene of at least two accidents. All subjects taken into custody are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

A pat on the back to Deputy Tony Wardell who stopped in Colorado yesterday to assist a CHP trooper on the side of the road who was struggling to take a DUI suspect into custody.  Sometimes our Deputy's are called into action even when they are off duty. Good work Tony.

Tonight Sheriffs Deputies were dispatched to rural Northwest Sherman County for a report of a 51 year old man trapped under a tree that he was cutting down. Thanks to the quick work of good samaritans, Aubrey Winter and Bill Gatshall, the victim was freed. He was transported by Northwest Kansas EMS.
The Sheriff's Office is excited to announce the beginning of a relationship with the Arapahoe County Colorado Medical Examiners Office that will now allow our deputies to get real life training that cannot be matched by merely looking at pictures in books or looking at power point presentations. Forensic Pathologist Kelly Lear-Kaul and Undersheriff Jason Showalter have been working together these ...last few weeks to arrange for our deputies to attend in progress autopsies. This training will allow our deputies to gain first hand experience in post-mortem investigations so that the first time they see this kind of evidence won't be on the scene of a crime. This will also give our deputies a better understanding of what takes place in the medial examiners office and give them a respect for what they may have to ask families to endure.  This program demonstrates the Sherman County Sheriffs Office dedication to getting the highest possible level of training for its deputies and the understanding that great education allows us to prepare for whatever challenges we may face in Sherman County. This program begins on Monday and will run until all of our deputies have attended training sessions.

The Sherman County Sheriff Office executed a search warrant at 419 West 16th Goodland Kansas on May 23rd 2013.  The search warrant resulted in the arrest of Michael Robben.  Michael Robben was charged with Sexual exploitation of a child.  A bond of $250,000 has been set by the Sherman County District Court.   The investigation is ongoing and came about because a concerned citizen brought attention to law enforcement of a computer that may contain child pornography.  If you have any information please contact the Sherman County Sheriff Office.  Please note that all accused are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
