Texas County deputies recently handled several investigations. 

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

•A representative of Oakwood Golf Club reported that two horses were on the golf course at about 9:20 a.m. Aug. 7. The man who owns the horses was contacted and said a storm had knocked out power to an electric fence.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 7:30 p.m. Aug. 4 to a Success Road residence at Success after a man reported his brother was following him around wanting to fight him. An investigating officer met with both men, and neither wanted to sign a statement. The officer advised them to leave each other alone.

•A Cabool woman called at about 6 p.m. Aug. 5 to report her neighbor’s dogs were chasing her at her Highway AD residence and she was afraid of them. An investigating officer made contact with the dog owner and advised her to keep her dogs under control or she could be issued a citation.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 3:45 p.m. Aug. 5 regarding a Missouri State Highway Patrol report of animal abuse at a storage unit facility on U.S. 60 at Cabool.

Dispatch advised the officer that kids were picking up dogs by their necks and a man was going to eat the dogs for breakfast. The officer made contact with people at the scene who said the man was joking and the dogs were well taken care of.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 10:50 p.m. Aug. 3 regarding a report of a domestic dispute at a High Street residence at Mountain Grove.

A 43-year-old woman who lives there told the officer her 46-year-old boyfriend had grabbed her by the arms and thrown her out of the house, and then tossed her cell phone and computer into a puddle. The officer was unable to make contact with the man. Investigation of the case continues.

•A Raymondville man called at about 8:20 p.m. Aug. 3 to report that a fight was going to take place at his Brushy Creek Road residence. An investigating officer went to the home and there was nobody there.

•A Licking woman called at about 4:20 p.m. Aug. 1 to report that someone had burned her Honda ATV at her Vancleve Drive residence. An investigating officer observed the ATV and could not find any evidence of it being burned.

•A deputy responded on Aug. 1 to a request for assistance by a Missouri Department of Social Services representative regarding a report received through the child abuse hotline.

The report – made by a man – stated that a 59-year-old Plato man had thrown a 14-year-old boy off of his bicycle, punched him in the face and run over the bike. The hotline report also stated the boy had been sexually touching a young girl.
