Numerous investigations were handled during the last week by Texas County Sheriff's Department deputies.

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

•On Nov. 12, a deputy investigated a report from a 46-year old Licking woman that she had heard whispering outside the bedroom window of her Highway CC residence.

The officer stated that the woman told him Christmas decorations had also been stolen from a storage building on her property. The officer reported checking an area under the window as described by the woman but was unable to locate footprints or other evidence of anyone being there. He was also unable to confirm evidence of a break-in of the storage building.

•Jackson C. Morgan, 37, of 4091 Highway 137 in Elk Creek, was issued a citation for resisting arrest during an incident at about 11 p.m. Nov. 23 on Grand Avenue in Houston.

A reporting officer stated that he and another officer were in a patrol vehicle turning from Walnut Street onto Grand Avenue and observed Morgan standing in the middle of the roadway. Morgan motioned them to go around him, and they stopped and made contact with him, asking why he was standing in the road.

Morgan then allegedly stated he wasn’t standing in the street. An officer then assisted Morgan – who was apparently intoxicated – to the side of the road. Morgan was then advised he was being taken to the Texas County Jail for a chance to sober up, but he actively resisted.

•A deputy was dispatched at 3:30 a.m. Nov. 17 regarding a report of a male prowler at a Northview Lane trailer park in Houston. The officer was unable to locate a suspect, and the woman who called in the report said the prowler had left and she wasn’t sure where he had gone.

•At 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12 a man requested that an officer check the well-being of his daughter at a Parker Road residence. The officer made contact with the daughter and determined she was fine, but her cell phone had quit working.

•An 83-year-old Licking woman reported on Nov. 16 that a bottle of hydrocodone pills had been stolen from her Highway N residence.

The woman told an investigating officer that several family members and others had been at the residence. The officer was able to question all the people who were reportedly there, except the former girlfriend of a grandson. Investigation continues.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 12:35 a.m. Nov. 9 to a Dekalb Lane residence at Plato regarding a fight between two brothers, ages 40 and 36. The officer made contact with the younger man and determined he had an active arrest warrant. He was arrested and taken to the Texas County Jail.
