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

•A deputy was dispatched May 4 regarding a report of a vehicle stolen from a Shafer Road residence at Licking.

The 59-year-old man who owned the vehicle (a red and white 1986 Chevrolet long bed pickup valued at $5,000) told the officer he had last seen it the previous night and that a neighbor had reported seeing it on Ware Road in Licking.

The officer traveled to the Ware Road location and found the truck in a pasture. He observed that it had sustained damage to the front end and a door, and had fence wire on its front bumper.

After returning to the TCSD office, the deputy was contacted by a woman who stated her 32-year-old husband had a substance abuse problem and might have swiped the truck. A Missouri State Highway Patrol officer located the suspect walking on foot on Highway C at Licking and observed that he had injuries. A family member took him to a hospital in Rolla.

The investigation continues.

•On May 6, a deputy investigated a report of damage at Long Hollow Cemetery in Plato.

A man representing the cemetery showed the officer that a headstone and an angel statue were missing and another headstone had been moved. There are no suspects.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 4 p.m. May 10 regarding a report of four ATVs racing up and down the roadway and doing donuts on Volner Road and Kelly Road at Raymondville. The officer was unable to locate the vehicles or their drivers.

•A deputy was dispatched just after midnight May 10 regarding a report of a gunshot at a Hogan Road residence at Houston.

A man at the location told the officer his house had apparently been shot and the deputy observed what appeared to be a large caliber bullet hole in a corner of the structure. The officer determined the shot might have come from a hill adjacent to the home.

•A Cabool man called May 9 to report that his daughter and son-in-law had pitched a tent on his Highway U property and were living there without his permission. An officer made contact with the pair and advised them they needed to leave.
