  1. It is not in Carp or even near it and also not in Carp jurisdiction. It is in the county therefore the sheriffs from that sub station have authority there. Understand I am not correcting this wrong title, I am only answering your question.

  2. I really wish at least the locals would learn how to spell “Gibraltar.” And I agree with STARGIRL. Please, Sheriffs, have your writers learn about the use of apostrophes and other rules of grammar.
