Sheriff Lavender wants to alert the community that his office took a report that at approximately 7:00 a.m. this morning a black male with yellow hair knocked on the door of a residence on Hartwood Road. The male stated that he was with the Ross County Sheriff’s Office and was there to collect an unpaid ticket. The female resident asked for identification and he claimed he had left it at home. The female said the male left the area driving a black Ford Escape with dark, tinted windows.
