CCSO works to cut out dirt road mischief

Due to the poor conditions of the county’s dirt roads, the Crenshaw County Sheriff’s Department is cracking down on reckless behavior on them.

“We’re trying to assist the county with the dirt road problems, and if we catch anyone riding around tearing them up, they’ll be charged with criminal mischief,” said sheriff Charles West.

A number of roads around the county also remain barricaded, and that is also a problem.

Deputies say driving around or interfering with barricades is an arrestable offense and also carries a $500 fine.
