Texas County deputies recently handled several investigations. 

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

•A woman reported at about 9 p.m. Sept. 29 that her grandchildren were missing from her Highway M residence. An investigating officer located the kids at their aunt’s house.

•A Houston man came to the TCSD office Oct. 2 to report property damage at his Union Road residence.

The man stated a neighbor woman had hired a bulldozer operator who had leveled a fence, taken out trees and caused other damage on his property. He produced “before” and “after” photos depicting the damage.

The man said he would try to work things out with the woman.

•A woman called at about 3:45 p.m. Sept. 24 to report a dispute at a residence in a Morton Road trailer park.

An investigating officer made contact with the man and woman who were allegedly involved and they claimed no dispute had occurred.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 4 p.m. Oct. 3 regarding a report of a domestic assault at a residence in a Morton Road trailer park at Houston.

The officer made contact with a 35-year-old man who lives there who said he had been attacked by a woman. He stated the woman had hit him in the face and bitten him on the ear, and the officer observed bleeding areas on the man’s lip and ear.

No charges were filed and the 12-hour rule was implemented.

•A deputy responded at about 11:55 p.m. Oct. 2 to a 911 call regarding an incident at a bar on Highway 32 west of Licking.

The officer determined that three unknown men had tried to start a fight at the bar, and the bar owner had locked them out. The men reportedly beat on the door repeatedly for a while, but were gone when the officer arrived.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 7 p.m. Oct. 1 regarding a report of a burglary at a Highway AD residence at Cabool.

A 47-year-old woman who lives there told the officer she had been away for a few days and when she returned she found that a Samsung tablet and two rifles with a total value of $500 were missing. There are no suspects.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 9:45 p.m. Sept. 30 regarding a report of a prowler at a residence in a Morton Road trailer park at Houston.

A man who lives there told the officer he thought someone was in his truck. The officer checked on the truck and determined it was locked and nobody was in it.

•A deputy responded at about 10:30 a.m. Sept. 30 to a report of an unresponsive woman at a Roby Road residence at Roby.

Upon arrival, the officer observed a man and woman arguing and trash and blood on the floor and shower door. The people were advised to stay away from each other and the woman stated she was leaving.

•On Sept. 30, the FBI requested warrant confirmations on two men and two women. All information was confirmed and submitted.

•A deputy responded at about 12:15 a.m. Sept. 21 to a report of theft at a Shafer Road residence at Licking.

A 58-year-old woman who lives there told the officer someone had entered her house and swiped $31,000 cash out of her underwear drawer. The woman named a Licking man as a possible suspect, indicating he is the only person who could have known about the money, but she said she didn’t think he took it.

•A deputy was dispatched Sept. 29 regarding a report of two dogs attacking a calf at a Highway 17 property at Plato.

The officer made contact with a 57-year-old man who lives there who showed a calf with injuries to its neck, ear and legs.

The man said he had given a verbal warning to the woman who owns the dogs after a similar incident about three weeks earlier. He shot and killed the dogs this time, and the officer observed and photographed their bodies.

As a result, a citation for failure to maintain adequate control of animals was issued to the dogs’ owner: Larenie McMahon, 26, of 12943 Highway 17 in Plato.
