S.O. Loses Employees: After Sheriff Bobby Rader had urged Commissioners Court to give him money for more deputies and pay raises for his department staff, instead Liberty County Commissioner's voted yesterday to cut back three deputies from the Liberty County Sheriffs Department and move them, and their allotted salaries into the general fund portion of the county budget. The Commissioners Court spent time behind closed doors before their vote. This comes after Sheriff Bobby Rader indicated in a letter his intent to use those three courthouse security deputy positions as patrol deputies unless needed at the courthouse for special security. Liberty County Judge Craig McNair made the motion to move those employees to a different department. The motion passed unanimously.There was no discussion on that decision during commissioners court. However, there was much discussion during a budget workshop held later Tuesday morning and we will cover that in a future news cast.

ClevelandRobberies: The Cleveland Police Department is urging area residents to be vigilant following two armed robberies over the weekend. Chief Darrel Broussard said a man was robbed at gunpoint last Friday around 11:20 p.m. after using an ATM Machine at a Wells Fargo location. The victim told police a maroon passenger car pulled into the parking lot behind his vehicle. He was approached by two men wearing dark sunglasses and red and white bandanas. The victim told police he gave the armed thieves his cash, wallet and cell phone. Another armed robbery was around 1:30 a.m. Sunday at the Valero Store on E. Houston in Cleveland. Two robbers, wearing bandanas, came into the store through an east entrance, a third came in from the west. One pointed a handgun at the store clerk and demanded money. Again, the victim cooperated and handed the robbers the money in the store's cash register. Police advise not to resist and be cooperative. Chief Darrel Broussard urged victims to get a good description without being obvious. Anyone with information on these two incidences should call Cleveland Police Department at (281) 592 2622 or the department's tip line at (281) 592 0800.
