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

Jan. 8

––A man called to report that on New Year’s Eve a neighbor had fired off a bottle rocket that landed in the yard of his Elder Springs Road residence. An officer contacted the neighbor, who agreed not to shoot off fireworks that might land on the neighboring property.

Jan. 10

––A 62-year-old Cabool man called to report that his ex-wife had tried to poison him in 2010 in order to get life insurance money.

Jan. 12

––An officer reported that on Dec. 13 he had investigated a report of a stolen shotgun.

The officer stated that a 55-year-old Plato man claimed he had loaned a Bennelli Super 90 (valued at $600) to a 31-year-old man who would not return it. The gun owner stated that the man he loaned the weapon to claimed it had been stolen, but he believed the man he loaned it to had actually stolen it.
