With the growing popularity of sell and trade websites, the Delaware County Sheriffs Office urges all to use caution when entering into business arrangements with strangers.

Unfortunately, a Delaware County Youth fell victim to a dishonest person that sold him stolen property. Sadly, this resulted in Deputies being forced to seize those stolen items from the young man just days before Christmas.

As a direct result of a recent Delaware County Sheriff’s Deputies PBA fundraising campaign and the generosity of the local businesses that donated to the fundraiser, this incident had a happy ending. The Deputies PBA was able purchase and present to the youth a new PlayStation 4, with accessories.

On behalf of everyone at the Sheriff’s Office, we wish you all a Happy and Safe Holiday Season.
