Members of the Texas County's Department handled several investigations in the last week.

While it may not be related to the string of burglaries bearing similar characteristics that recently occurred in parts of three area counties, the Texas County Sheriff’s Department received a call last week to regarding another burglary in the southwest portion of the county.

A Mountain Grove man last Sunday came to the sheriff’s department in Houston and reported that someone had stolen several items from his Dogwood Road residence.

The man stated that the stolen items included 37-inch Sylvania flat screen TV, a Nikon camera, an 18-inch Craftsman chainsaw, various tools and jewelry. He said he suspected a Mountain Grove woman in the theft and that he had seen her unloading the goods at her place of residence.

The matter was under investigation at press time.
