Newton County is being hit hard by a series of unusual thefts that are creating a safety hazard for unsuspecting citizens. According to Deputy Director of Newton County Emergency/Risk Management Jody Nolan manhole covers and storm grates are being prised up and stolen from roadways at an alarming rate. And the problem doesn't stop there. The openings that are left exposed when the covers are taken is large enough for an automobile tire to go into, or worse, an unsuspecting person could fall into one. Authorities ask that if citizens see suspicious activity to call 911 immediately or call 678-625-5007 to leave an anonymous tip or go to www.newtonsheriffga.org and click on "anonymous tips."
