The following reports were generated last week by the Texas County Sheriff’s Department.
•A Roby man called on Nov. 8 to request extra patrolling near his Highway 32 residence due to suspicious activity (of unknown nature). A deputy reported he had patrolled the area for several days and not seen any suspicious activity.
•A deputy was dispatched at about 4 a.m. Nov. 5 to assist Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers with a vehicle rollover accident on Highway 17 at Evening Shade. Upon arrival, the officer made contact with the driver, who was taken away by ambulance. Patrol officers secured the scene before the deputy’s departure.
•A deputy was dispatched at about 8:10 p.m. Nov. 5 regarding a truck blocking a portion of Old Yukon Highway at Yukon. The officer made contact with the man who owned the vehicle, and he moved it out of the way. The officer then gave the man a courtesy ride to Houston.
•A deputy investigated a report of assault at a Highway C residence at Licking on Nov. 10 at about 5:40 a.m.
A 33-year-old woman at the location told the officer her 34-year-old estranged husband had struck her in the mouth with his fist and injured her hand by slamming a door on it. The officer stated he observed that the woman had abrasions on her knuckles and her lip was red.
The officer was unable to locate the man, but after an investigation, the deputy determined the man would be issued a citation for third-degree assault when he was found.
•A 94-year-old Licking man called on Nov. 9 to report that a set of deer antlers had been stolen from his Bean Creek Road residence.
The man told an investigating officer that he had placed the rack on his porch and turned away for a moment, and when he looked back it had disappeared. The officer stated in a report that sheriff’s department officers work on cases each month in which the man claims something has disappeared.
•An officer was dispatched on Nov. 9 at about 8 a.m. regarding a possible suicidal man at a Vollmar Drive residence at Raymondville.
The officer made contact with the man, who indicated he had tried to harm himself with a belt because of being questioned about a child molestation incident a few days earlier. The man was taken by ambulance to Ozark Medical Center for a 96-hour evaluation period.
