"Everyone seemed to have a good time and we were happy that we drew a good crowd." Lebanon Police Chief Billy Weeks said there were fewer arrests and tickets written this time than in years past. "Overall, there was less activity then we have had in the past," Weeks said. "The most unusual activities were the burglaries inside the fairgrounds over the weekend. Identities were stolen and people were pretty upset." Weeks said the Lebanon Police didn't work security inside the fairgrounds but they did take the reports. He said there was reported vandalism and burglaries in Fiddler's Grove."The fairgrounds staff does well," Weeks said.
