Sheriff's officials on Monday said there were no serious incidents during this year's Merced County Spring Fair in Los Banos.
Sheriff Mark Pazin and his deputies were on hand during the event to provide security during its five-day run. The Spring Fair at 403 F St. kicked off Wednesday and ended Sunday.
Deputy Delray Shelton, sheriff's spokesman, attributed the success and safety of the family-friendly event to the collaboration between the fair board, Board of Supervisors, Pazin and his deputies.
During the fair, Pazin had ordered a "no tolerance stance" against all crimes, Shelton said.
In addition to the Spring Fair in Los Banos, the Merced County Sheriff's Department also provides security for the Merced County Fair, which is scheduled to take place June 12-16.
The theme for this year's Merced County Fair is "Thank You Veterans."
