Fund created for injured officer

A fund-raising effort has begun to benefit law enforcement officers Glenn and Melanie Roe.

The couple were involved in a motorcycle crash Sept. 28 in St. Martin.

Glenn Roe, a sergeant with the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department was killed while Melanie Roe, the Wiggins Police Department Animal Control Officer, was seriously injured.

“It is going to take a long time for her to recover from her injuries,” said WPD Chief Matt Barnett. “Melanie is well liked in the community and we have been receiving numerous phone calls and cards and questions about how people can help.”

An account has been created at The Peoples Bank and those wishing to contribute can contact the bank to donate to the Melanie Roe Benefit.
