Amish in Mesopotamia encouraged to report crime

Posted: Updated:

MESOPOTAMIA TOWNSHIP, Ohio - The Trumbull County Sheriff's Department is encouraging the Amish Community in Mesopotamia to report crime and suspicious activity.

Officials say they're seeing an influx in the number of Amish who are drinking and driving, as well as the number of large parties taking place among the community's youth.

"It's very difficult to ascertain what problems they're having in the Township of Mesopotamia because up to this point the Amish generally don't like to report things, they like to take care of them in their own church," said Major Harold Firster. "What were trying to do is get cooperation so we can help them and aid them in correcting some of these problems."

Sheriff Deputies add that the Amish are subject to all Ohio law - including drinking and driving as well as curfew.
