Emergency responders praised

Editor, My wife, Jodi, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department, Liberty 911, and the Hinesville Police Department for working together for the speedy recovery of our company vehicle.
On June 12, as we were getting ready to go to bed, we heard the engine of our company truck, parked in the front of the house, start. I looked out the door in time to see the truck being driven off our property, heading east on Highway 196 toward Hinesville.
I jumped in my wife’s car in pursuit of the vehicle. Meanwhile, Jodi called Liberty 911 to advise them of the theft. Jodi later told me the operators were very courteous and quick to dispatch a deputy to the house. The deputy showed up several minutes after the call was placed to 911, and took her statement.
Within 15 minutes of leaving our residence, the deputy called to inform Jodi the truck had been recovered. We were told to recover our vehicle at Airport Road after the detectives finished photographing and processing it for evidence. We later found out the person who took the vehicle was armed and on probation.
Once again, I would like to thank the Hinesville Police Department, Liberty County Sheriff’s Department, Liberty 911 and everyone who took part in the speedy recovery of our vehicle. Job well done!
