When it comes to crime in Broome County, it looks like 2005, was just your average year.

The Broome County Sheriff's Office released its annual report for 2005.

The Sherrif's office responded to more assaults, burglaries and larcenies in 2005, compared to 2004.

But Broome County Sheriff David Harder says the number of complaints, as well as the number of arrests for rape and possession of marijuana have gone down.

Harder says crime statistics in Broome change slightly year to year, but nothing in the 2005 report looked out of the ordinary.

"I didn't notice anything that jumped out that much. Like I say, the averages they go up and down. They vary a few every year, either go up a few or down a few," says Harder.

It's not available yet, but the 2005 report will soon be online.
