The following are matters dealt with last week by sheriff’s department officers:

—A 49-year-old Raymondville man reported that tires and wheels valued at $2,040 were stolen off of his truck while it was parked at his Sackett Road residence.

There are no suspects.

—An officer reported Aug. 9 a 71-year-old Roby man had reported that an infrared heater had been stolen from a rental home he owns by a 52-year-old male tenant.
The man stated that the heater had been sold by the suspect to a Roby restaurant, which representatives of the business confirmed. A report was sent to the county prosecutor for review.
—Jackson C. Morgan, 35, of 4071 S. Highway 137 in Elk Creek, was issued a citation for violation of a child protection order after allegedly waving at a 14-year-old girl at her mother’s residence at a Northview Lane trailer park in Houston.
The woman told investigating officers that Morgan also sent text messages to her cell phone. A Houston police officer also involved in the investigation confirmed observing the texts.
—Aleesha R. Utter, 21, of 14407 Gentry Lane at Roby, was issued a citation for third-degree domestic assault after allegedly punching a 44-year-old Plato woman with her fist during a late-afternoon fight at the woman’s residence.

An investigating officer collected evidence at the scene implicating a 47-year-old Houston man. The officer also observed damage done to a door to the home, and took blood samples from the scene.
The suspect was later contacted and a blood sample was later taken. Both were sent to a lab for comparison.
