Texas County deputies recently handled several investigations. 

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

•Kenneth D. Romine, 47, of 14342 Highway AA in Bucyrus, was issued a citation for peace disturbance after an incident at shortly before midnight on May 1.

A deputy responded to a report from two men who stated their neighbor was making excessive noise and yelling at them through a loudspeaker. The officer went to the scene and advised Romine to cease the noise.

But the deputy was dispatched back to the location two more times the same night, and finally wrote the ticket. The officer reported that upon arrival on one of the trips, several loudspeakers were visible at Romine’s residence and he could be seen playing drums with the sound coming from the speakers at a high volume.

The officer advised him that multiple complaints had been received, but Romine allegedly replied that he didn’t care because they had shot his dog and was going to keep them awake.

Earlier the same day, a deputy responded to a report of a shot dog at Romine’s residence. Investigation of that case reportedly continues.

•A deputy on May 14 investigated a 911 call regarding a man kicking in the door at a Cleveland Road residence at Houston.

The officer reported that the 31-year-old Washington (Mo.) man had been on a float trip on the Big Piney River with friends, when a man he was with fell in the water and lost consciousness. The suspect allegedly went to the home to call 911, but when nobody was found to be home, he kicked in the door to get to a phone.

The man who fell into the river reportedly suffered a seizure, but was examined by emergency medical personnel and released. The man who kicked in the door agreed to pay for the damage to the home, and no charges were filed.

•A deputy on May 12 responded to a fax from the Cabool Police Department that indicated a 55-year-old woman had complained about representatives of Jehovah’s Witness coming to her Berry Road residence.

The officer advised the woman that an attempt would be made to contact the representatives to advise them not to come back to her residence.

•A deputy responded at about 10:50 p.m. May 12 to a report of an unknown animal in a house on Red Bud Road at Cabool.

A woman who lives there told the officer the animal had made entry through the doggie door. The officer was unable to locate it.

•An officer was dispatched at about 3:45 p.m. May 13 regarding a report of trash dumped on Hillcrest Road at Licking.

The officer made contact with a man who lives there who said there were two piles of trash, and he had found papers with a woman’s name on them. The officer contacted the woman, 22, and advised her to clean up the trash or she would be cited for littering.

•A deputy on April 19 responded to a report of a 30-year-old woman’s dog being shot at a Highway U residence at Cabool. Upon arrival, the officer observed two marijuana plants growing in plastic cups.

A probable cause statement was sent to the county prosecutor.
