Texas County authorities said an investigation in Raymondville helped solve several cases. One person fled and was found in a brush pile, they said.

Two women were arrested during an incident Dec. 29 at a Splitlimb Road residence at Raymondville.

A Texas County Sheriff’s Department deputy was dispatched at about 10 a.m. after a report was received of a possible trespasser at a rental home. When the officer arrived, he observed a truck belonging to a man who was not allowed to be there.

During an investigation, a 35-year-old woman who lives there became belligerent and was ultimately handcuffed and arrested for interfering and resisting. A second woman reportedly fled the scene, but was later found by officers hiding in a pile of brush about 400 yards from the house.

She was identified as a 25-year-old Houston woman who had multiple outstanding warrants, and was arrested for the warrants and for resisting arrest.

The investigating officer reported that the women’s arrests also led to information that helped solve several other crimes in Texas County and Illinois. One of those crimes involved the theft of two air conditioning units from Raymondville School.

The two units were found at the Splitlimb Road residence, and the 35-year-old woman and a 45-year-old Illinois man were identified as suspects in that case.

Both women were taken to the Texas County Jail and reports were sent to the county prosecutor.
