Public Warned About Unauthorized Event
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is warning people about an unauthorized event. Over the week, an individual has been inviting many agencies and businesses throughout Jackson County to an event scheduled at the Jackson County Expo ponds on Saturday, October 4, 2014.
According to businesses who have been contacted, the event is partnering with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and the Jackson County Fairgrounds to assist the homeless. The suspect is asking people to come help him mine for gold in the Expo ponds. A portion of the gold that is found in the ponds will go to the homeless. The suspect is telling businesses 10% of the gold will go to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and 10% will go to the Jackson County Fairgrounds.
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and the Jackson County Fairgrounds are NOT participating in this event. This is an unauthorized event and the public is discouraged to go.
