Help Out The Franklin County Sheriff’s Department

The man who broke into a house in Pacific probably didn’t know the homeowner had a good security system. Franklin County deputies responded to a house in the 6000 block of Hwy O outside Pacific in reference to a break in. The property owner told police he had surveillance cameras posted outside the residence. The video showed a black two door passenger car drive in to the driveway of the residence. A white male wearing a ball cap, dark t-shirt, blue jeans, and white tennis shoes, exited the vehicle and walked near the doors of a camper located on the property. The subject was also observed in other areas of the property until he is observed running from the residence to his car. The home owner had an audible alarm in the residence and thought the suspect more than likely activated it when he fled the residence. Deputies are currently trying to identify the suspect and vehicle. You can view the photos on our facebook page at The New KLPW AM All Talk 1220.

Anyone with information related to the identity of the suspect is requested to contact the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office at 636-583-2560. Callers can remain anonymous if requested.

Thomas Jefferson, proponent of the Bill of Rights, could never have conceived just how many venues there are today for First-Amendment protected speech.

What he also could not have conceived is how this phenomenon of pervasive media has actually stymied, not enhanced, the free speech expression of presidential candidates.
