Letcher

On Saturday, April 18, the Sanborn County Sheriff’s Office was called to a rollover accident east of Letcher. Both the driver and the passenger were taken to Avera Queen of Peace Hospital in Mitchell, treated and released. The driver was cited for passing in an intersection. Names of those involved and any other information could not be provided at this time.

At a recent town board meeting, the Letcher Town Board passed a resolution similar to most towns in the state, suggesting the closure or limited operation of non-essential businesses, such as bars, restaurants and other indoor and outdoor venues where people congregate. They also passed in that resolution that the Letcher Community Center shall remain closed until school resumes or the public health emergency is over.

Eugene “Beaner” Prins of Woonsocket was last seen Thursday, March 26, at approximately 7:30 p.m. at a rural residence south of Forestburg. According to the Sanborn County Sheriff’s Office, the sheriff’s office was notified of the disappearance by a social media post at around noon on Friday, March 27. They contacted the Jerauld County Sheriff’s K9 unit, but due to the amount of time that had passed and searcher activity in the area of the last sighting, the K9 was unable to get a trackable scent. After that was determined, a search was conducted using drones, ground searchers and the South Dakota Highway Patrol’s plane until the search had to be called off due to darkness.
