Citizen of the Year 2015

Sheriff Phil Miller and staff would like to congratulate Mr. Ridley Watson, 81, for providing information vital to apprehension of two suspects wanted in a commercial burglary. On October 21, 2015, two men attempted to rob the Jolly Wally's on Bankhead Hwy. Mr. Watson was able to fend off the robbers as well as provide a vehicle description, including license plate number. If it hadn't been for that key piece of information, we would've had a much more difficult time solving this case.
