•A deputy was dispatched at about 7:30 p.m. June 1 to assist a Houston Police officer with a trespassing situation at Dooley Street and Hawthorne Street in Houston.
Upon arrival, the deputy observed the police officer with four people sitting on the ground. The police officer asked the deputy to watch three of the people while he spoke to the fourth. One person was arrested by the police officer.
•A deputy was dispatched at about 8:45 p.m. May 29 to assist Cabool police with a drug overdose incident at the Bel Noir Apartments on U.S. 63. When the deputy arrived, Cabool officers said the person who had overdosed had already been taken by ambulance to a hospital.
•An officer was dispatched at about 4:45 p.m. May 29 to a Highway 137 location at Raymondville regarding a vehicle reportedly in the roadway. Upon arrival, the officer observed it was actually not in the roadway and its occupants didn’t need any help.
•A deputy responded at about 6:40 p.m. May 29 to a request by the Houston Police Department to arrest a man at a Hayes Drive residence at Houston. Upon arrival, the officer discovered the man no longer lived there.

•An 80-year-old Cabool man came to the TCSD office May 23 to report that he had gone to an FBI office to report a hate crime and had been directed to the sheriff’s department.
The man produced a copy of a 15-page letter written by his 70-year-old sister and addressed to the Texas County prosecuting attorney documenting an ongoing dispute between them. He stated she hates him and was committing a hate crime.
An officer advised the man that what his sister had done didn’t qualify as a hate crime and probably wasn’t even criminal harassment.
