We have an update from the Sheridan Police Department on the home entry case that happened Tuesday night in Sheridan. Detective Sgt. Tom Henry explains.
Henry says that the use of the CodeRED alert caused some panic, which was certainly not the intent; rather, they felt it was serious enough to put out an alert. He adds that this was the first time the new system was used, and they have some fine-tuning to do in using it.
Of the incident, Henry says.
Initially we had been told that there wasn't much of a description of the man, but now we know that he is a white male who possibly goes by the name of "Jake", appeared to be in his 30's with short blond hair, and was wearing work boots, a dark shirt and a baseball cap.
The matter is still under investigation. If you have information that could assist the Sheridan Police Department with the identity of this subject, please contact the PD at 672-2413.
