On August 10th, Deputies were dispatched to the 5400 block of Farrell Road for a structure fire.

Upon extinguishing the fire, Dexter Fire Department personnel advised that approximately 50 lambs and 80 turkeys had died inside the barn.
On August 13th, Deputies responded to the intersection area of North Territorial Road & Donovan for a serious injury accident. Multiple callers reported that a vehicle traveling west on North Territorial Road had struck a motorcycle traveling east. The caller’s reported serious injuries to both riders, including the loss of limbs.
