            Sheriff Harris states “Thanks to the Investigators, Rainsville Police Department and DHR for doing the outstanding job they do and being very observant on noticing the false ID trying to be pulled off. Investigators work 100’s of cases a year and a lot of the time it is the small things that make the case possible for the prosecutors to reach as many guilty vertices as we do at the Sheriff’s Office.”
