The following are other matters dealt with last week by sheriff’s department officers:
—An officer reported that on Aug. 15 he and four other officers had removed 734 marijuana plants at Plato, where the plants pop up yearly. The officer said the site has been inactive for eight years, and yields less each year. The property has reportedly been brush-hogged, sprayed and has had cattle on it.
—An officer reported that on Aug. 18 he had been dispatched to a Chick Johnson Street residence in Raymondville after a 74-year-old man reported that his 27-year-old son had stolen three $20 bills from his wallet while he was sleeping and then left with the money.
The father stated he wished to press charges, but the son has yet to be located. The father stated he would call the TCSD if his son returns.
—An officer reported that on Aug. 18 he had been dispatched to a Chick Johnson Street residence at Raymondville after a 73-year-old man reported that his green 1994 Ford Ranger pickup truck valued at $1,500 had been stolen.
There are no suspects.
—An officer reported that on Aug. 21 he had issued citations to a man and woman who were involved in a domestic disturbance at the woman’s residence.
Ericka J. Litchfield, 33, of 10678 Burley Road at Mountain Grove, and David W. Hewett, 49, of 11950 Highway 38 at Bendavis, were each cited for third–degree domestic assault following the scuffle, which occurred just before midnight and began with an argument about prescription medication, according to a report.
—A man came to the TCSD office to report that a woman had tried to run him off the road.
An officer spoke to both parties and advised that they stay away from each other.
—A 57-year-old Cabool man reported that an air conditioning unit valued at $250 had been stolen from a Beeler Road property owned by a woman who is away until 2013. The man stated he had been watching the place for the woman in her absence, but he hadn’t been there in about a month.
—An officer reported that on Aug. 25 a tip was received that a 25-year-old Cabool man and a female acquaintance were cooking meth at the man’s Highway 181 residence.
Upon arrival, officers made contact with the man at his mother’s house next door. He stated he had not been cooking meth, but would not give consent to search his home. The officer reported that further information about the man would be gathered to obtain a search warrant.
—A Huggins man called at about 5 a.m. to report seeing a man with no shirt walking on Huggins Drive. An officer made contact with the man and he said he was waiting for a friend to wake up so he could do some work for him.
—An officer was dispatched to a South Gate lane apartment at Plato regarding a domestic disturbance.
When the officer arrived at the scene, a 22-year-old woman answered the door who had visible marks on her throat and swelling under her left eye. The woman told the officer her 22-year-old boyfriend had come home drunk and assaulted her.
The officer observed the man asleep on the couch. When awakened, the man became angry and belligerent. He was taken to the Texas County Jail and a probable cause statement was sent to the county prosecutor seeking a charge of second-degree domestic assault.
—William A. Wilson, 26, of 14089 Highway 32 in Success, was arrested and issued a citation for violation of an ex parte after allegedly having his mother contact his 24-year-old wife on his behalf in an attempt to retrieve some of his belongings.
