Deputies with Texas County Sheriff's Department handled several investigations during the last week. 

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

•A deputy was dispatched at about 8:45 p.m. Aug. 9 to a Steely Chapel Road residence regarding a woman who had overdosed on her medications. Upon arrival, the officer found the woman lying on the couch. An ambulance took her to Texas County Memorial Hospital.

•An officer went to a Daisy Drive residence at about 11:30 p.m. Aug. 9 in an attempt to locate a man wanted by Pulaski County authorities who was thought to be living there. Upon arrival, the officer made contact with a man who stated the suspect was living in Edgar Springs.

•A deputy was contacted by the Havana Police Department at about 8:30 p.m. Aug. 7 regarding a stolen dog. The officer was told that a witness had gotten a license plate number from the suspect’s car, and it checked to a Ladley Road residence in Texas County.

The officer went to the location and the residents stated they do have the dog. It was taken to an animal shelter and the owner made arrangements to pick it up.

•A 37-year-old Cabool woman reported on Aug. 9 that a 23-foot Bayliner boat valued at $5,000 and a trailer valued at $1,000 had been stolen.

The woman told an investigating officer that she had been awarded the boat in a divorce settlement, but before she could pick it up from where it was stored, the man who had been keeping it in storage called her former husband and told him to come and get it. She stated she spoke to her former husband and he said he would make sure she didn’t get the boat and it would be unusable.

The officer contacted the ex-husband who stated he had sold the boat a month earlier and didn’t know where it was. The officer advised him he had been seen earlier the same day pulling the boat through Houston. He denied that was him.

The matter is being investigated.

•A 66-year-old Licking man reported on Aug. 8 that a 51-year-old man had tried to hit him with a 6-foot long post.

The alleged victim stated that he and another man had been traveling in his pickup on Boiling Springs Road and the suspect had run in front of the vehicle and then disappeared in the bushes. When they looked for him, the suspect allegedly jumped out and swung the post at the victim.

An investigating officer went to the suspect’s Boiling Springs Road residence to get a statement and issue a citation for assault, but a woman there said he would be gone for three days.

•Officers were dispatched at about 1:40 p.m. Aug. 8 to a Morton Road trailer park in Houston regarding a domestic disturbance and possible suicidal person.

The officers made contact with a 43-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman who had apparently been in an argument, and the man had cut his wrist with a steak knife.

He was taken to Texas County Memorial Hospital for treatment of his self-inflicted injuries, and for court-ordered mental evaluation.

•A Licking woman reported on Aug. 8 that her sons had found syringes on the back of their property while squirrel hunting.  The woman told an investigating officer the items were probably left there by her male neighbor or his friends.

The syringes were removed and disposed.

•A Cabool man called at about 9 a.m. Aug. 8 to report finding a small coin purse hanging on a fence at the end of Highway AV that appeared to contain drugs and paraphernalia.

An investigating officer stated the items included smoking devices and plastic bags containing a white residue that tested positive for methamphetamine. The items were logged as evidence and marked for disposal.

•A Licking woman called at about 6:30 p.m. Aug. 7 to report goats running loose and eating flowers at her Highway 32 residence. An investigating officer made contact with the goats’ owners, who came and retrieved them.

•A Cabool woman called at 10:15 p.m. Aug. 7 to report prowlers knocking on the windows of her Malberg Road residence. An investigating officer was unable to locate any suspects.

•A Raymondville woman reported just after midnight July 30 that her landlord had locked the gate at her Sumpter Drive residence so she could not get to her house. The woman told an investigating officer that someone had unlocked the gate just before he arrived.

•A 53-year-old Success man reported on Aug. 5 that a Mossberg shotgun had been stolen from his truck while it was parked at his Highway 17 residence. There are no suspects.

•A 54-year-old Summersville man reported on Aug. 11 that a jar containing about $75 in change had been stolen from his Ranch Road residence.

An investigating officer stated a strand of golden hair was found in a window to the home, which was the suspect’s apparent point of entry because a screen had been replaced upside down. The man named a 32-year-old woman who might have been the burglar. The officer reported that he had tried to locate the same woman earlier the same day on outstanding warrants, and that he had received a call indicating she had been seen walking on Highway 137 about two miles from the man’s house.
