•An 18-year-old Cabool man came to the TCSD office Feb. 28 to report Internet fraud.

The man told an officer he had found a truck he wanted on Craigslist in Key West, Fla., and the woman who allegedly owned it told him to send $1,000 and she would ship the truck so he could test drive it. The man said he sent the money but never saw the truck and the truck’s owner would no longer make contact with him.

The man was advised he would have to take the matter up with law enforcement in Key West.

•An officer was dispatched Feb. 27 regarding a report of unsafe living conditions at the residence of a 27-year-old man and 23-year-old woman and several young children on Dogwood Road at Mountain Grove.

The officer made contact with a DFS investigator there and observed garbage and clothing strewn throughout the house, broken glass in a hallway walking area and a package of cupcakes covered with mold in easy reach of the children.

The children (ages 5, 4, 2, 1 and 1) were removed and placed in their grandmother’s residence until the living conditions were improved.

•A woman who has more than one brother called Feb. 27 to report that the man authorities were looking at as a suspect in a case was the wrong brother. The woman was advised that deputies were still investigating the case.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 9 a.m. Feb. 27 after a man requested a well-being check on a woman at a Longview Road residence at Elk Creek. The officer made contact with the woman and she said she was fine and had turned off her phone while it was charging.

•A deputy on Feb. 24 investigated a report of a 2007 Chevrolet Trail Blazer that had been stolen from Fort Leonard Wood. A military police investigator said the vehicle was at a 24-year-old woman’s Success Road residence.
