We don’t put up with it in Polk County. If we catch you stealing from a local store, we are going to arrest you and do everything we can to let people know you are a thief. Remember: We give free rides (in the back of a patrol car) if you get caught shoplifting in Polk County.” —Grady Judd, Sheriff (Source
