Sheriff’s office urges extra caution during holiday shopping season

MADISON COUNTY, Tenn. — The Madison County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind you to be careful during the holiday shopping season.

The sheriff’s office says remember to lock your car, keep gifts, guns and valuables out of sight, and beware of phone scams.
