I agree Sheriff Foskey has done a great job of cleaning up our drug infested county. He doesn't show favortism and clearly let's everyone know that if you are gonna deal drugs in Bacon County, he will get you.

What drug problem has he solved? The only dealers that he has removed from the streets is low level dealers found through traffic stops or meth producers that have been reported by locals concerned for there community. Numerous crops of pot have been seized but they could not or would not wait to catch who was growing it. I am not saying he is not at good person but to say he is cleaning up Bacon county is a joke. Until Bacon county quits turning a blind eye to the major growers and traffickers nothing will ever change.
Do better then

So, how would you do things differently? Jump in and arrest folks without probable cause so that it gets thrown out of court? There's a reason Sheriff F has a 100% conviction rate (check public record). He gets his ducks in a row first, but unfortunately, just because you seize millions of pot plants on someone's land doesn't mean you're going to know who was growing them. But please, dazzle us with your knowledge of law enforcement investigation protocol...

I never claimed to be an investigator but when you make these large bust and get your picture in the alma times but there is never an arrest what is the point. If he has gotten convictions on these large bust please let people know I will admit I'm wrong. There has been a blind eye for years even before Foskey. Until these commonly know people are arrested and convicted nothing will ever change in our home town.

It's called eradication, look it up. Any web site devoted to law enforcement can help you understand the term. Just because an arrest hasn't been made doesn't mean progress hasn't occurred.

If you have a sheriff like Atkinson and Clinch Co. has you would think Foskey was trained by Matt Dillon. You have a good Sheriff, support him

This is not intended at the sheriff but law enforcement in general. They very rarely catch anyone high up in the drug business. And if they do its almost never due to their great police work. Its almost always due to them catching a drug user during a traffic stop or doing something stupid Andrew then they get that person to roll on the higher ups. And almost always that guy gets off with slap in the wrist. Quit waitinv on law enforcement to get rid of the drug problem because its not going to happen . EVER! The best thing you can do is educate your children on the hazards and bust their ass if you suspect them of doing any drugs. And I know lots of parents in this town would smoke a joint now then when they were young and they tbink if their kid does it its not that big of deal as they are just teenagers. Well the pot we smoked as kids is nothing like the pot the kids are smoking today. And by far the biggest problem is prescription drug abuse. And that is a fact. Meth is not going away and you better make damn sure you educate your kid about the danger of it because I promise you he or she is going to be offered it at some point or another. Doesn't really matter who the hell the Sheriff is its going to be up to you to be real parents and make sure your kids stay away from the drugs because no sheriff is going to ever come close to fixing the drug problem in any town period
it IS the truth

Unfortunately, I agree with every word. I wish this was not the truth, but it is. I also agree with busting their ass , if possible. If there is a father in the home and the child is still living off parents, I don't care if they are 18, bust their ass if they act a fool!
Just my opinion...do what you have to do to keep them away from drugs.

I'm just gonna throw this out there. Sure foskey is a great sheriff and does his job well. He doesn't show favoritism at all, but to say he's cleaning up the county is a joke. I say forget the pot go after the crap that's killing people. The freaking pills. Pills in bacon county is ridiculous. Roxys are running rampant on bacon county and coffee county. Its crazy how many people I know that is addicted to the dang things. and no I don't do it. I've never even seen one I just know they do them. If I was police officer I'd be watching the, motels in Alma and that apartment complex out by stock market. I've, heard the maintenance dude at those,apartments sales them.and I know who a pretty big dealer is in Nicholls to. I'm just not putting his name up on here. I mean sure its great that he is cleaning up some stuff but this County isn't get cleaner its getting worse. Don't turn a blind eye on that. I graduated less than ten years ago and since then its gotten worse...way worse.

If you know who these dealers are it is your obligation as a compassionate human being to report it to the sheriff or the drug task force. Personally I would skip over the sheriff and go directly to the Southeast Drug Task Force. They have shown a tendency not to show favoritism when dealing with these people. I turned a big time dealer in Douglas over to the sheriff there only to find out he was servicing the sheriff and half of his department. When deputies show up in their county owned patrol cars to get their roxy's you realize you have made a mistake. Maybe Coffee Countie's new sheriff will do something about it. Just have to wait and see.

I reported over a two years ago only find out from one of his flunkies that he was told that an anonymous report had been made concerning him and a few of his customers. So I figure what's the point in saying anything. They know the guy is selling. They just don't do anything about it
