Temporary Closure of Limestone Co. Detention Center

Limestone County Detention Center, publicly owned, but privately operated, has been closed again, but only temporarily according to Limestone County Judge Daniel Burkeen. Not to be confused with the Limestone County Jail, the Detention Center is being de-populated until a larger population is available for housing in an attempt to save money. Prior to closing, the facility had about 250 employees and generated millions of dollars of revenue, which accounted for about five percent of the county’s budget. “It is being maintained and kept on active status with the jail commission,” explains Burkeen. “LaSalle Corrections, the company hired to take over the prison, renovate the facility, and seek inmates, will continue to seek larger contracts so the facility can be reopened.” This closing will not affect Freestone County, as the inmate housing contract for overflow is with Limestone County Jail and not the detention...

The following items are compiled from recent Texas Parks and Wildlife Department law enforcement reports. Gone Hog Wild A game warden was on his way home from work near Bay City when he noticed a pair of four wheelers driving around a private ranch working spotlights. He called another warden for backup and together they gathered up what turned out to be eight individuals and their hog dogs. Allegedly, a neighbor who knew the hunters told them that the ranch owner was out of town and wouldn’t be around. The warden contacted the rancher, who indicated that he would be getting with him to file charges on the group once he returned home. Holy Mackerel, Not Again A Matagorda County game warden was checking an offshore sport fisherman and found several frozen undersized Spanish mackerel. The fisherman stated that he had purchased the fish for offshore bait from a seafood dealer in Matagorda, who turned out to be the same business owner that received numerous citations for the same violation when wardens inspected his place of business a few weeks ago. The warden contacted the business owner and questioned him about the possible possession of any more undersized mackerel. The dealer admitted to having more and led the warden to a freezer where he had 256 illegal undersized mackerel stored. Citation and approximately $1,700 in civil restitution are pending....
