Brandon Moore is still grappling with the concept of people calling him a hero.
He’d better get used to it. On Tuesday, the Morrow County Sheriff’s deputy was selected as he National Sheriff’s Association Deputy Sheriff of the Year.
“I’ve never done anything on such a huge scale,” Moore said. “This is definitely quite an honor, and very humbling.”
On Oct. 21, Moore responded to a call regarding a dispute between neighbors at a farm near the Knox County line. After resolving the dispute, Moore left — but ultimately returned after a tipster reported one of the landowners was growing marijuana.
