Crime investigations

Texas County deputies handled investigations during the last week.

The following are excerpts from reports generated by the Texas County Sheriff's Department:

•A woman called at about 5 p.m. May 24 to report a man lying in the road on Highway M about three miles from Cabool. Dispatch contacted Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop G about the matter, but no trooper was available.

An investigating deputy was unable to locate the man.

•A man called at about 4:50 p.m. May 23 to report a fight going on at a house next to his Reed Road residence at Licking. An investigating officer didn’t observe anyone fighting.

•A 61-year-old woman came to the TCSD office on May 24 to report than every time she puts decorations on a headstone in the Evening Shade Cemetery, they get stolen. She stated it has happened numerous times. There are no suspects.

•A 64-year-old woman came to the TCSD office on May 18 to report that she had told her 41-year-old son to get out of her house.

The woman told an officer her son rented the residence from her but hadn’t paid rent in three years. She said that when she told him to leave, he said he wouldn’t, but if he did he would burn the house down.

The woman said she wanted the incident on file in case something happened.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 1:40 a.m. May 23 after Alarm Central reported a glass breakage alarm going off at a building on Highway 17 at Roby.

Upon arrival, the officer observed that the building was secure and there was no sign of broken glass. The building owner arrived and nothing suspicious was found.

•A deputy responded on May 23 to a man’s request to check the well-being of a woman at a Craddock Drive residence at Licking. The officer determined the woman had sold the place to a man back in February and now lives in the Stockton Lake area.

•An 18-year-old Raymondville man called May 23 to report a prowler outside his Highway B residence. An investigating officer didn’t find anyone.
