It's not everyday that the Gibson County Sheriff's Department gets a call to save someone from a snake or snapping turtle, but when it happens, they jump into action!

According to the department's FB page:

Sgt. Vanoven was sent on a report of a breaking and entering in a garage. He apprehended the suspect without incident.

The officers aren't just dealing with theft, drugs and snakes...They are protecting the citizens of Gibson County from snapping turtles, too!

 Deputy Smith was sent on a report of a snapping turtle in Haubstadt on Saturday. He located the turtle and was able to safely relocate him.
