(7-17-18) Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey released an aerial photo today taken of crop damage that occurred July 15th, 2018 in the area of Brown and Meyer Road(s) outside Celina. The damage occurred when an intoxicated motorist went off the roadway through several fields. The aerial photo was made possible by an individual who donated the drone to the Sheriff’s Office for assisting deputies who would otherwise be unable to scope out the entire path of destruction done.

Sheriff Grey stated:

“We in Mercer County are fortunate to have caring citizens who help us gain the tools we use and are also fortunate that this community supports local law enforcement”.

The drone is also used for accident reconstruction and in the event of a missing person, as well as a variety of other things. The Sheriff’s office greatly appreciates the community support.
