Regarding his transition to sheriff from his current role as chief of detectives with the sheriff's department, Forney promised, "this place isn't going to skip a beat.We are just going to keep on going.
"I'm always going to miss my friend, Sheriff Berghager," he said."Nobody can fill his shoes, nor will I try.But we are going to continue the good work that he started and operate the office in the manner he did.
"When Ben was gone on vacation, we made things work the way he liked it.And a lot of the ways he liked things done are still in my mind," Forney said.
"He was like a dad to me, and he kept the office and the staff in the office closely knitted," he continued."I worked with him 10 years.He wasn't for sure if he was going to run for the fourth term.We talked about it."
Forney added that he wanted to thank "all the citizens of Ralls County who supported me and all the people who went out and helped me out, especially my party backers."The Berghager family helped him, he said, "and I was very grateful and very thankful."
Forney noted that in special election each party chooses its candidate and Johnson ran as an Independent.

Forney has reported he has experience in working with rural law enforcement, and he explained that, "you have to be resourceful when you do this.

The gunfire capped a two-county chase that started in Ralls County at approximately 6:30 a.m. at a motel located just north of the Clarence Cannon Dam, according to Ralls County Sheriff Paul Forney. "The owner heard some noises in the building. They tried to call up on some phones and no one answered so he called the sheriff's office and a deputy responded," he said. "The deputy and owner were going to go check the building when they heard a noise like somebody jumped or fell. It was still kind of dark and he shined a light down in the dark and there was a guy. He yelled for him to stop and that's when he (suspect) took off running. He got in the vehicle and sped out. That's what began the pursuit." Sunday morning's incident was not the first attempted break-in at the motel, according to Forney. "Apparently somebody tried to pry the cash drawer open. That occurred sometime late Friday night or early Saturday morning," he said. "A small pickup truck, dark in color, was seen in the area." Considering the suspect was reportedly driving a "small, S10 truck" could there be a connection between the two incidents? "It sure looks like it to me," said Forney.

"But we're investigating that and the one where he fled the scene."
Two-county chase
The chase was on from there as the suspect, with the Ralls County deputy in pursuit, raced north into Ralls County. "He (deputy) was calling for assistance and maybe some spike strips to be set out," said Forney.

The victim lived at the home where the assault occurred, according to Ralls County Sheriff Paul Forney. Forney explained on Tuesday that "neighbors and people in the area were interviewed for information," and the state patrol assisted with the arrest and preliminary investigation. He added that although the victim's injuries "were not real serious, the witnesses' statements" were valuable in making decisions about the filing of charges against Pargeon. "With the deputy and the trooper's conclusions and the witnesses' information," Forney said, "we believe the charges to be appropriate."
