Huron County Sheriff Dane Howard provided what appears to be inaccurate information last week to bolster his defense of deputies involved in a botched raid on Benedict Avenue on March 25.
Howard released a series of text messages exchanged between his detective and a Norwalk police officer regarding the flawed search warrant used in the raid.
But he left out four specific text messages that appear to show statements he’s made about the raid are not accurate.
The sheriff appears also to have incorrectly stated that no conversation occurred between his deputy and the Norwalk officer in the days leading up to the raid.
Phone records obtained by the Register show it apparently did occur.
