Sheriff Dave Scott and Deputy Jeff Fredrickson watch diligently while Dave Christianson demonstrates how his company's tank locks work, as part of the efforts of Cherokee County to prevent the theft of anhydrous ammonia. The Sheriff accepted 153 locks on behalf of the county, and the locks will be used by area businesses and farmers, with a 100 percent cooperation of said persons, according to the Sheriff. Christianson works for Tanks-A-Lok security devices of Humboldt.
