Milan, NM |

Family has been disputing land ownership. The land is been turned into a dump of trash. One person is accused of stealing the trash and he has no ownership documents. Sheriff's want to go to the land and wants to discuss what belongs to who without all the proper paperwork. There are 3 people that claim the land .

Yes. Part of his job is to keep the peace. What better way than to meet with the parties in the dispute and attempt to resolve their issues? I expect he might also tell the parties who he might arrest if the dispute gets our of hand - maybe all three if you are all breaching the peace!
