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

•A deputy responded to a report of a stolen vehicle on Aug. 20.

The officer stated in a report that a 50-year-old Cabool man said a 1994 Chevrolet pickup valued at $2,000 had been swiped from a barn at his Sunrise Drive residence. After an investigation, the truck was located in Webster County and a 52-year-old Cabool man was arrested by Springfield police and transported back to Texas County pending further investigation and formal charges.

•Two officers were dispatched at about 8:30 a.m. Aug. 25 regarding a report of a domestic dispute at a Deer Run Drive residence at Licking.

During the officers’ investigation, a 32-year-old Licking man who was a suspect at the scene made derogatory statements to the officers and fled. The man was subdued by a Taser and apprehended.

He was taken to Texas County Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained when he fell during the pursuit. He was later released and taken to the Texas County Jail where he was placed under “suicide watch” observation and held for having several outstanding warrants.

•A woman called Aug. 26 to request that an officer speak to a female neighbor on Durham Road, stating that the neighbor almost hit her with a car. The officer made contact with the neighbor, who said she didn’t recall the incident but would be more careful.

•An officer responded at about 6 p.m. Aug. 21 to a report of threats with a firearm at a U.S. 63 residence at Cabool.

The officer reported that a 43-year-old woman at the location said her 43-year-old male neighbor had come to her home and stated her dog had killed his cat. The woman reportedly also said that a short time later her brother saw the neighbor point a rifle at her residence.

The officer made contact with the neighbor, who denied having a gun, but a Remington .22 caliber rifle was located in his home. The officer determined the man was a convicted felon and arrested him for unlawful possession of a firearm.

A probable cause statement was sent to the county prosecutor seeking formal charges.

Receipts from the sale of the items bore the name of a 29-year-old Raymondville man.

A 68-year-old Elk Creek man came to the TCSD office the same day and reported that numerous power tools and other items with a total value of $4,929 had been swiped from his Highway 137 residence.
