Deputies with the Texas County Sheriff's Department were called to a variety of calls in the last week.

A Cabool woman called the Texas County Sheriff’s Department on March 19 to report that a camo-colored 2007 Kawasaki 750 ATV valued at $10,000 had been stolen from her Pointer Road residence.

The woman told an investigating officer that she suspected a high-school age boy. She stated that he was a friend of her son and that he had told her son that he and his friends had been stealing ATVs lately.
