WATER THEFT

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

•A deputy responded at about 11 p.m. Oct. 2 to a report of an incident in Licking involving a man pointing guns at a woman.

The deputy and a Licking police officer spoke to the woman at a motel room, and she said she and another man had been told to leave a residence on Vancleve Drive by a man who had pointed an AR-15 and a pistol at them. The man who was with the woman stated the alleged suspect had not pointed a gun at them, but that he had delivered an AR-15 to the suspect that belonged to him, and he and the woman were at that time told to leave.

The woman declined to press charges.

•A deputy responded at about 1:10 p.m. Oct. 2 to a report of a prowler at a Highway AT residence at Licking.

The officer made contact with a man who lives there who stated “they are coming after me, and they are mad.” The officer asked the man if he had taken any drugs, and the man said he had taken “some speed or ice,” and that he wanted to go to a hospital for help.

The deputy gave the man a ride to Texas County Memorial Hospital because the man became upset about being strapped down in an ambulance.

•A Cabool woman called at about 1:20 p.m. Oct. 2 to report a suspicious red SUV going down the driveway of her neighbor’s Barnum Lane residence. Before an investigating officer arrived, the woman called back and said it was just someone coming to help her neighbor.

•A 54-year-old Raymondville woman called Oct. 1 to report that someone had shot and killed her bull mastiff dog at her Craig Lane residence.

The officer spoke to several neighbors, who stated the dog was always running loose and would growl at them. Investigation continues.

•An officer was dispatched at about 11:50 a.m. Oct. 2 regarding a report of gunfire at a Blue Bird Road residence at Cabool. The officer determined the sound had been caused by kids playing with the phone while watching a movie that included gunfire.

•A representative of Houston Water District 3 called Sept. 23 to report theft of water at a U.S. 63 residence.

An investigating officer made contact with a water district worker at the location, who showed where a water meter had been removed in July due to non-payment. The deputy observed where a lock on the water line had been broken, and a white hose put in place to complete the connection to the home’s water lines.

Since the meter had been removed, there is no way to determine how much water had been illegally used since July. Two vehicles registered to a 40-year-old man were observed outside the residence, but it was unclear who lived there. The officer reported attempting to make contact with people there on multiple occasions, but each time nobody was home. Investigation continues.

•A 35-year-old Licking woman came to the TCSD office Sept. 22 to report that her 49-year-old former husband had been taking photos of her at her Highway 32 residence, and that she had a full order of protection on him. An officer made contact with the man and he said he had not photographed the woman, but had stopped in the middle of the roadway to take a picture of a lawn mower he had been awarded in divorce proceedings.

Investigation continues.

•A deputy responded at about 7 p.m. Sept. 28 after a man reported someone kicking the door at his U.S. 63 residence at Cabool. The officer was unable to locate the kicker.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 10:15 p.m. Sept. 25 regarding a report of a vehicle that had been sitting for hours at Highways 32 and N. The officer was unable to locate the vehicle.

•An 18-year-old Summersville woman reported Sept. 27 that a dachshund puppy had been stolen from her Primrose Drive residence.

The woman told an officer she let the dog outside for five minutes, saw a white Jeep pull into the driveway and then noticed the dog was gone. She stated she thought the vehicle belonged to the postal service.

The officer contacted the area’s mail carrier, who said she had stopped at the home to turn around and observed two dogs, but that neither were puppies. Investigation continues.

•A deputy and officers from several agencies were dispatched at about 5 p.m. Sept. 26 regarding a report of a 3-year-old boy missing from a Cloverdale Road residence at Cabool. The boy was found safe hiding in a bathroom inside the home.
