Adams County Sheriff Patten said he was proud of his deputies for being observant in locating Dison and also diligent in recovering the stolen items.

“They did not just answer the call and go back to patrolling the county,” Patten stated in a news release. “They took the initiative to go find the suspect, which probably saved the county from having more car burglaries in the area.”
