A Houston man was arrested on several counts following an incident east of Houston, authorities said.

The following are excerpts of reports generated by the Texas County Sheriff’s Department:

•The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported horses in the road on Highway 17 north of Highway K at about 4:50 p.m. Aug. 16. An investigating deputy was unable to locate them.

•A deputy assisted Licking police after consent was received to search a Highway 32 storage unit after a theft was reported at about 11:15 p.m. Aug. 16. The Licking police officer was unable to determine what had been stolen.

•A woman came to the TCSD office at about 4 p.m. Aug. 11 to report that she had gone to an area near Highway Y to swim and when she pulled into the parking lot, all the people who were there left in a hurry.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 9:40 a.m. Aug 4 regarding a report of a suicidal woman at a Decker Drive residence at Licking.

The woman was taken to Texas County Memorial Hospital without incident, but while the officer was inside the home, he observed six items of drug paraphernalia in plain view on a table. The items were seized as evidence, and Gary R. O’Daniel, 64, of 16045 Decker Road at Licking, was issued a citation for possession of drug paraphernalia.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 9:45 p.m. Aug. 15 after a man reported a party involving numerous people and seven or eight vehicles at the Allen Cemetery on Brushy Creek Road at Raymondville. The officer observed nobody at the location.

•A deputy assisted a Summersville police officer with finding an address on Highway 17 at about 12:15 a.m. Aug. 12. The deputy located the address and advised the police officer of its location.

•An officer was dispatched at about 9 p.m. Aug. 11 after a woman called to report that another woman had left her children home alone at a Deer Run Drive residence at Licking that had no running water. The officer went to the home, and observed the woman there with her children. She showed the officer the house had running water.

•A 61-year-old Summersville man called Aug 9 to report that three jars of coins totaling an unknown amount had been stolen from his Arroll Road residence. There are no suspects.

•A deputy responded at about 11 p.m. Aug. 4 to a report of a disturbance at a Highway AM residence. The officer made contact with two people there who said there was no problem other than they had been drinking.

•A deputy responded Aug. 12 to a report of property damage and arson at a 72-year-old woman’s Chick Johnston Street residence at Raymondville. Upon arrival, the officer observed what appeared to be ashes and melted debris under the bumper of a Chevrolet S10 pickup, and a melted area of the plastic portion of the bumper. Further investigation revealed that a metal building on the back part of the property had been damaged by fire.

The officer reported that the characteristics of the debris near the building were similar to those near the truck, but that toilet paper soaked in a substance that looked and smelled like bacon grease was also evident.

A neighbor man told the officer he saw three minor boys near the scene while he was walking at about 5 a.m.

There are no suspects, and investigation of the case continues.

•Three men who are members of the board of a Tyrone cemetery came to the TCSD office Aug. 12 to report alleged embezzlement by a woman associated with the organization. The men showed an investigating officer copies of questionable checks and indicated that funds had been moved from one bank to another without their knowledge. They told the officer they wished to have the case postponed until an agreed upon later date.
