The Hyde County Sheriff’s office reports that although Ocracoke had a record number of visitors for this time of the year, crime reports remained low and the island continues to enjoy a relatively calm fall.

For the period of Sept. 15 to Oct. 16, Corporal Blackburn Warner reported one dog bite; one DWI, and one larceny from a store, which is shoplifting.

There was one 24-hour hold for drunkenness, three motor vehicle crashes of the fender bender level and three injury to properties, with one related arrest.

For the same period, the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department reported 12 medical responder and four medevacs.
