Numerous investigations were handled during the last week by the Texas County Sheriff's Department.

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

•At about 8:15 p.m. Sept. 3, a deputy investigated a report of a peace disturbance at a Boiling Springs Drive residence at Licking.

A woman who lives there told the officer her neighbors had been yelling at each other for two hours. The officer made contact with a woman at the neighboring home who said her husband had warrants for his arrest and had fled the scene, but she would try to keep the noise down.

•At about 8 p.m. Sept. 7, a deputy investigated a report of a peace disturbance at a Catfish Lane residence at Cabool. A man who lives there told the officer he and his roommates had been verbally fighting. He said they had left, and he didn’t think they would be back.

•Terry W. White, 30, of 16464 Forrest Drive in Houston, was arrested Sept. 8 for having four active Texas County warrants for misuse of 911.

An investigating officer reported that upon arrival at the front door of White’s residence, a man was observed running from the front room toward the rooms in the back of the house. The officer asked another man who was there who the man was who had run, and he stated he and a woman were the only people present at the residence.

The deputy then told the man that if White was found during a search of the home, the man would be arrested for harboring a fugitive. The man then told the officer White was in a back room.

White was found under a pile of blankets next to a bed. He was taken to the Texas County Jail and held on $20,000 bond.

•A 27-year-old Cabool man came to the TCSD office Sept. 9 to report a burglary at his Spruce Drive residence. The man told an investigating officer that a Miller’s welder valued at $1,500 and numerous tools valued at $275 had been swiped.

There are no suspects.

•A deputy responded Sept. 10 to a report of abandoned animals at a Highway AJ property near Bucyrus.

The officer reported observing six sheep at the location that were in varying conditions, from dead to malnourished. The officer stated that no food or water was visible and that more than one animal appeared to have a broken leg. After an investigation, the officer determined the property owners were a 42-year-old man and his wife who had moved to St. Louis.

Attempts were made to contact them without success. The matter was reported to the Humane Society.

•Deputies were dispatched at about 10:20 p.m. Sept. 6 regarding a report of a party in the woods on Hayes Drive at Houston. Contact was made with several people at the location who were advised they were on private property and needed to leave.

•Deputies were dispatched at about 4:20 p.m. Sept. 5 regarding a report of underage people consuming alcohol at the Baptist Camp river access on Highway RA. An investigating officer stated nobody was observed drinking at the location. 

•A deputy was dispatched at about 5 p.m. Sept. 12 regarding a report of a theft at an Arthur Creek Drive residence at Houston.

A 56-year-old woman who lives there told the officer her washer and dryer were missing. She also stated she and her 51-year-old husband were going through a divorce.

The officer made contact with the man and determined he had taken the appliances.
