Marshall County Sheriff Reports Wet/Dry Vote Vandalism
Marshall County law enforcement are responding to an uptick in vandalism related to the upcoming wet/dry vote. Marshall County Sheriff Kevin Byars says signs for and against the sale of alcohol are being vandalized. He says it is a crime.
“Be responsible, quit acting like children. All this is antagonism, that’s all it is. Folks out there need to be mindful if we catch you and can prove that’s what you’re doing. (There’s ) no alternative you will spend the night in jail.”
An area pastor says his church was vandalized recently and that it may be in connection to the sign thefts. Sheriff Byars says, though, that sign vandalism and theft is common during regular elections too. The Marshall County wet/dry vote is July 17th.
