Texas County deputies recently handled several investigations. 

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

•A 65-year-old Willow Springs man came to the TCSD office Aug. 13 to report that a 2008 Ford F-150 pickup had been stolen from the driveway at his Bartlett Drive residence on July 24. The man named another person as a suspect. Investigation continues.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 5 p.m. Aug. 14 to assist the Houston Police Department regarding a report of tear gas being set off at an auction at the Houston Area Chamber of Commerce Fairgrounds. Upon arrival, the officer determined that an unknown person had been looking at a pepper spray gun and accidentally shot it toward a man’s face in front of him. An ambulance reportedly took the victim to Texas County Memorial Hospital to have his eyes flushed.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 10:45 p.m. Aug. 12 to assist the Houston Police Department regarding a report of gunfire at Miller’s Grill on South U.S. 63. Officers were unable to locate the person who had called in the report, but a man at the scene said his truck had backfired.

•A 28-year-old Roby man came to the TCSD office Aug. 4 to report that while he was in jail, his 24-year-old wife had left for Pennsylvania and taken their child. After an investigation, the man was informed that no charges would be filed against the woman because the couple wasn’t married when the child was born and he would have to legally establish paternity.
