Chief Justice Assaulted by SACSO Deputy 
By Lydia Ashworth • Published 8th April 2018
 
 
 
Party-goers were left stunned this evening as a prank call lead to the Chief Justice, Alexander King, being threatened and assaulted by deputies of the San Andreas County Sheriff's Office.

As people enjoyed the club opening, two deputies entered the vicinity claiming there to be "a security issue". Deputy Matthews instructed the club to be cleared out whilst Chief Justice was contacted by SAN Network. SANN were able to gain the following clips of their conversation:
 
“ 
Alexander King says: I saw the 911 call, we will just lock the club.
Eric Matthews says (radio): 183 to 728, 10-4. Need assistance in getting everyone out of here.
Alexander King says: No need for evacuation.
Eric Matthews says: Well a little more hustle might be preferable.
Alexander King says: Lydia, just lock the club.
Alexander King says: No need for an evacuation, the club will be locked.
Alexander King says: No gunmen will enter here.
Eric Matthews says: We have reports that the security of the structure has been compromised.
Alexander King says: Feel free to clear outback.
Alexander King says: I checked the 911 calls myself.
Alexander King says: No such calls.
Eric Matthews says: I HIGHLY implore that you either assist in the evacuation, or leave yourself.
Alexander King says: So unless you have something else to add, there is no evacuation.
Eric Matthews says: Yeah, this isn't an argument, sir, it's an order.
Eric Matthews says: Please leave the building.
Alexander King says: The doors are locked, and no one will come in.
Alexander King says: I am telling you no.
Alexander King says: The building is secure.
Eric Matthews says: Then I'm telling you, that you have 60 seconds before I arrest you for Failure to Comply.
Alexander King says: Unless you have a warrant, you need to leave.
Alexander King says: Threatening to arrest me?
Marquis Prince says: I highly suggest you unlock the door for the other troopers.
Alexander King says: Are you mad?
Eric Matthews says: Absolutely not, sir.
Alexander King says: You need to leave or this will be considered trespassing.
Eric Matthews says: I am completely sane and dead serious.
Eric Matthews says: Then write up a civil complaint.
Alexander King says: No one is leaving.
Eric Matthews shouts: Everyone needs to leave the building.


This was all prior to Chief Justice being assaulted with a beanbag shotgun by a Deputy who has, within the last hour, been arrested.

SAN Network were also able to obtain the following CCTV footage of the incident:

It is believed that Chief Justice suffered severe pain to the arm and broken ribs.

Executive staff from the San Andreas County Sheriff's Office later arrived on scene, describing their own mess as "cancer".

This furthers the question: Are we really safe under the "protection" of the San Andreas County Sheriff's Office?

Fuel Delivery Leads to Blaze at Montgomery Gas 
By Lydia Ashworth • Published 7th April 2018
 
 
 
A fire broke out, this afternoon, at Montgomery Gas.

The San Andreas Investigation Bureau, joined by San Andreas News Network, were the first on scene, acting quickly to secure the scene whilst the Red County Fire Department were called. SAIB member, Graham Tasker, was relentless in his quest to keep civilians in the area safe, whilst FD simply wished death upon a news reporter.

It is believed that a truck about to deliver fuel to the gas station caused the blaze, crashing into the pumps most likely at speed. The driver of the vehicle was rushed to Crippen Memorial where it's understood that he is in critical condition. An additional casualty was taken to hospital.

Although the blaze was eventually tackled, the Deputy Chief himself was heard referring to the scene as a "f****** mess."
 

It is not yet known how the driver veered into the gas station, however SAN Network will bring you more updates as they become available.

Launching the "Giving Something Back" Initiative
By Lydia Ashworth • Published 14th March 2018

 
SAN Network, for a long time, have been a generally welcomed face in the community. From participation in events to the support of articles, nothing SAN Network do would function correctly without the support of the people of San Andreas. 

With that thought in mind, it's time to give something back and put our resources to good use. Starting with the purchase of Rockshore Youth Park Ice Cream Shop, SAN Network will be taking on the challenge to bring improvements to the local communities of Red, Bone and Flint County. In a partnership with Elite Trucking, SANN will be giving the underprivileged the chance to significantly improve their surroundings. Whether that be through upgrades to housing, amenities or simply the provision of equipment.

SAN Network plan to donate resources to the value of $1,000,000 to the most deserving candidates, with help from Elite Trucking who will carry out the work required.

((In short, if you have a faction that you think meets the above criteria this is for you. Although upgrades will be fully RP'ed by Elite Trucking, mapping is unfortunately not provided with this. You will instead receive the full $1,000,000 to use as you wish. The only condition is that you must show proof of your factions' existence through the provision of your faction topic in the application. New factions will be considered, including those who may make a new faction simply to take part!))

If you're from a group or community of people that could benefit from this scheme, simply fill in the below form and email it to lydia.ashworth@sann.sa ((Forum PM Beth)) or alternatively collect a paper copy from any SAN Network Office and hand it in at the front desk ((either way, forum PM me)).

Applications will be open until Friday 13th April.

Although this is SAN Network's main initiative, this is just the start. As an organisation we plan to contribute more to the locality in the coming months.

Best of luck!
