Texas County deputies recently handled several investigations. 

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

•A deputy was dispatched April 9 to assist Mountain View police with a search of a residence and property at Mountain View.

During the investigation, a motorcycle was found that had been reported stolen out of Hollister, and two rifles that a 52-year-old man who lived there had in his possession illegally because he was a convicted felon. A probable cause statement was sent to the county prosecutor seeking felony charges against the man.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 11 p.m. April 9 after a man reported loud music near his Oak Hill Drive residence at Houston. Upon arrival, the officer was unable to hear anything.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 11:15 p.m. April 9 after a man reported loud music near his Piney Drive residence at Houston. The officer made contact with the people playing the music and they agreed to turn it down.

•An officer was dispatched at about 9:40 p.m. April 6 regarding a domestic dispute at a Mooney Hollow Drive residence at Licking.

The officer made contact with a 55-year-old woman there who said a 50-year-old man there had threatened her, but when the officer asked what form of threats they were, she wouldn’t say. The officer spoke to the man, and he said he hadn’t threatened the woman, but was outside the residence because she wouldn’t leave him alone.

The man told the officer he wanted to leave, and he left on foot indicating he would call someone to pick him up.

•At about 7:50 p.m. April 7, a deputy investigated a report of property damage at a Brushy Creek Road residence at Houston.

A 25-year-old woman who lives there told the officer a 25-year-old man had come to her house to get a TV and she told him he wasn’t getting anything. She stated the man then used a jack handle to break windows out of her car. Investigation of the case continues.

•A woman reported at about 9 a.m. April 7 that her son was missing from his grandfather’s home in Bucyrus. An investigating officer called the son and he said he was with his grandfather and was fine.

•A woman called at about 10 a.m. April 6 to report finding mason jars containing a white substance on her Steely Chapel Road property. An investigating officer determined the substance was pickling salt.

•A 49-year-old woman reported on April 5 that jewelry and a cell phone with a total value of $673 had been stolen from her Tiffany Drive residence at Houston. The woman gave the names of two men who might have swiped the items to an investigating officer.

Investigation of the case continues.

•A woman reported on April 5 that a man had sold her car while it was parked at his house (address unknown) and taken her gun from her U.S. 63 residence.

An investigating officer made contact with the man and he said the woman’s mother had taken the gun and a man driving a green Suburban had taken the car away for the woman.
