Fair Director Loran Brookins advised that recently an unknown person had broken into one of the Fair offices and had stolen some handheld radios and chargers. Mr. Brookins also advised that it appeared someone had been living in one of the offices on the fairgrounds.
On December 7, 2015 Deputy Sam Quincey and other deputies went to the fairgrounds to conduct a security check. Deputy Quincey located David Alec Summers (12-3-80) sleeping inside one of the offices.
