These men and women are some of the best around and I’m proud to be able to work along side them. At this time some property has been recovered and we are hoping the remaining can be found as we bring in the other suspects. The citizens who live in Abbeville and Henry County work too hard to have someone come in and steal their belongings. It’s time to send a message to these thieves that this behavior is not going to be tolerated. I’m going to push that all individuals responsible be sent to prison and let it be known to anyone else who wishes to do the same will be treated the same.”– Abbeville Police Chief Eric Blankenship
