Attempted Kidnapping: Liberty police are investigating a report of attempted kidnapping. Sunday around 9 p.m., police responded to the intersection of North Travis and Monta where a teenage boy reported he was sitting on a bench in that area when approached by a man who tried to pull him into a car. The teen said he was able to free himself and run away. The boy reported the male driver is 50 to 60 years old with white hair that is balding on top. The vehicle is possibly a white-colored Lincoln. Anyone with information is asked to call the Liberty Police Department at 936-336-5666. Callers can remain anonymous.

Courthouse Security: Liberty County Commissioners voted 3-0 yesterday to return three deputies positions to Liberty County Sheriff Bobby Rader. We reported last week, following a closed-door session, commissioners voted 4-0 to remove the positions and salaries of those three deputies from the sheriff and place them in the county’s general fund. Yesterday, the county attorney told commissioners that if the county attempted to create its own security force they could run afoul of state law, but moving funds from the S.O. to the county’s general fund budget was not illegal. He did say the peace officers’ commissions could be carried by either the sheriff or a constable’s office. Sheriff Rader said he would not carry the commission on an officer who was not under his supervision. In Tuesday’s special meeting, Commissioners Eddie Lowery, Norman Brown and Mike McCarty voted to return the deputies and corresponding funding back to the sheriff’s department.
