Smith County Law Enforcement Has Made 42 Felony Arrests So Far In April
This past weekend many East Texans took part in several different Easter egg hunts trying to find that golden egg filled with cash or some other kind of big prize. Most everyone walked away with a basket full of Skittles, chocolate eggs, jelly beans, and other assorted Easter candy only to bring it to work and place it on the break room table just like they did at Halloween! Time was spent with family and fellowshipping with friends too.
There was also plenty of shopping to be done last weekend at various markets and 'trade days' events throughout East Texas. While the majority of us were enjoying our holiday weekend, there were some that didn't get to experience any of it because they just happened to be sitting behind bars in the Smith County Jail.
