"The Hancock County Sheriff's Office, in the last couple of months, had about 12 burglaries in the eastern part of the county," said McFarland. "State police had at least three."


Jacob Richardson,19, was arrested and charged for creating a police standoff and Danny Goodrich, 19, was arrested for bail violations. A female juvenile is also charged for receiving stolen property.
