Deputies handled several calls during the last week in Texas County.

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

•A 20-year-old Licking woman reported on May 7 that her dog had been stolen.

The woman told an investigating officer that the registered Rottweiler was chipped, and a scan by a monitoring company had placed it in the St. Louis area. The officer determined a St. Louis man had taken the dog while on a float trip in Texas County and transported it to St. Louis.

The officer and the woman made contact with the man and he said he was not going to return the dog because he was too busy. The man instead surrendered it to a St. Louis animal shelter.

A probable cause statement was sent to the county prosecutor seeking charges against the man.
