Texas County deputies handled investigations during the last week.

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

•A 54-year-old Eunice man reported on Nov. 27 that several items had been stolen from his Highway 17 residence, including a radiator, battery and carburetor from a truck.

The man told an investigating officer he suspected a 33-year-old man who is a tenant of his at a Highway B trailer park at Houston, and that he had gone to the suspect’s home and observed several of the swiped items there. A deputy went with the man to the suspect’s trailer and also saw the allegedly stolen goods.

No contact was made with the suspect, but photographs of the items were taken. Investigation continues.

•Seven TCSD officers responded at 3 p.m. Nov. 26 to a request for assistance by the Wright County Sheriff’s Department in a multi-agency search for a male suspect who had fled on foot from Mountain Grove police onto County Road 138 in Douglas County. Wright County called in a canine team, but the dogs and officers were unable to locate the suspect and the search was called off at about 5:40 p.m.

Also assisting were personnel from the Missouri State Highway Patrol and Douglas County Sheriff’s Department.

•A deputy responded at about 1:20 p.m. Nov. 26 to a 911 call regarding a request to assist an ambulance crew at a Reed Road residence at Licking.

Upon arrival, the officer made contact with a man who was extremely intoxicated and said he wanted to go to the hospital and needed oxygen. The man was taken by ambulance to Texas County Memorial Hospital.

•A representative of the Veterans Administration Hospital reported on Nov. 23 that a Plato man had stated he was “ready to get it all over” at his residence. The VA representative requested a well-being check on the man, and an investigating officer made contact with him at his home.

The man reportedly told the officer he didn’t want to hurt himself, but his wife had left him and he was having a hard time dealing with the holidays and other things going on. He said he appreciated the check, but that he was okay.

•A deputy responded at about 5:10 p.m. Nov. 24 to a report of several traffic cones being dumped out at Cleveland Road and Durham Road in Houston. An investigating officer located several cones and they were returned to the City of Houston road crew.
