The officer made contact with a woman at the suspect’s home, who stated she had not seen the gun but that his mother had. Investigation of the matter continues.

A 25-year-old man living there told the officer that about 20 chickens had been stolen from his Fisher Drive residence March 22 between 10 a.m. and 11 p.m.

A deputy was dispatched at about 11:30 p.m. to a Brown Road residence at Raymondville regarding a report of harassment.

A 52-year-old man living there told the officer that three men in a truck had been bothering him and that the same thing had happened multiple times in the past. As the deputy was speaking with the man, a red truck drove by with three men inside, who the man identified as the three suspects.
