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

•A 36-year-old Licking man reported on Aug. 3 that three windows in his Ford pickup had been smashed while it was parked at his Garrison Road residence. An investigating officer observed an ax near the truck that had small pieces of glass imbedded in its wooden handle. There are no suspects.

•Terry W. White, 29, of 16464 Forrest Drive in Houston, was issued a citation for third-degree domestic assault after allegedly throwing a bowl of cereal at the victim that hit her in the face and also choking her during an argument over bills just after midnight Aug. 3.

A deputy returned to the same home about 24 hours later regarding a report of another domestic disturbance.

•A 24-year-old Licking man reported at about 6:30 p.m. Aug. 1 that a set of keys were missing from his Whispering Pines Lane residence. The man told an investigating officer that he had seen a small blue car drive by his house and suspected the occupants had stolen the keys.

The woman said she told the man not to be there any more, but said that when she left and returned, the supplies were gone.
