Warning Given About Trespassing
Posted on Mar 22nd, 2015 Comments (0)
Sunday morning, an observant neighbor on the river alerted the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office that a couple of juveniles were seen doing donuts with their four wheeler on the FOR Community Center grounds. Because of the excessive rain yesterday, the center’s grounds are very wet and easily rutted. Sheriff’s officer Joshua Beal responded to the call and found the two juveniles busily circling the grounds. The two were issued a warning about trespassing on private property and allowed to leave.
