Texas County deputies are investigating several crimes in the county.

The following reports were generated last week by the Texas County Sheriff’s Department.

•The owner of a Boiling Springs road resort reported at about 8 a.m. June 22 that a man was trespassing and was suspected of stealing items from guests. The owner told an investigating officer he wanted the man removed. The officer made contact with the man, and he was removed and advised not to return.

•A man reported at about 10 a.m. June 23 that a dog was trying to bite him at a Northview Lane trailer park. An investigating officer stated that the dog did not appear aggressive, and advised the man to file a complaint with the trailer park manager.

•An officer was dispatched at about 4:30 p.m. June 16 to a Mills Road residence at Cabool after a man reported that another man was threatening he and his family. The alleged threat-maker told the officer he didn’t intimidate anyone.

•A 69-year-old Licking man reported at about 6:45 p.m. June 21 that a camping trailer on his Highway C property had been broken into and burglarized, and that a white Ford Ranger pickup was sitting in his driveway.

The man was unable to provide a list of items stolen from the trailer to an investigating officer, and stated he was going to move the trailer to a different location to prevent further damage. Before the officer left, the owner of the pickup showed up, claiming the vehicle had broken down. It was towed at his expense.

•A report was received at about 9:50 p.m. June 21 at about 9:50 p.m. that a 30-year-old Plato man was at his father’s Highway M residence at Success, attacking the father’s truck with brass knuckles.

An investigating officer determined that the alleged truck assailant was not in possession of brass knuckles. He did tell the officer that his belt buckle had what appeared to be brass knuckles on it, but that the belt was no longer in his possession. The officer stated the man refused to indicate where he had disposed of the weapon or belt.

The father stated he didn’t want to press charges, and just wanted his son to leave. He did.

•A 64-year-old Tulsa, Okla., man reported that several items had been stolen and a fifth-wheel trailer (valued at $5,000) burned to the ground at his Bear Claw Road property in Texas County.

The man told an investigating officer that swiped goods included a gas-powered generator and a chainsaw. A tractor had also been damaged by fire. There are no suspects.
