Pemiscot Co. deputies to patrol levee system

PEMISCOT COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

The Pemiscot County Sheriff’s Office reports it has been asked by the Levee Authority to begin patrolling the levee system because of the rising Mississippi River levels.

At this time, no one is allowed to be on the levee or on the sides of the levee and anyone caught violating this order will be asked to leave and not return to the levee until further notified.

Deputies will be working overtime to enforce this request.

The Pemiscot County Sheriff’s Office reports this is only a precaution, and as of now there are no reported problem areas in the system.
