The following are excerpts from reports generated by the Texas County Sheriff’s Department:
•A deputy was dispatched Jan. 29 to Texas County Memorial Hospital regarding a report of a possible stabbing victim.
The officer made contact with a 38-year-old man there who said he had been fixing a sandwich at his Walnut Grove Drive residence in Bucyrus and had fallen onto a knife that punctured his right leg. The officer spoke to a woman during investigation of the case who said she thought the man’s former girlfriend had stabbed him, but the officer noted in a report that no evidence had been found to substantiate that claim.
•A deputy resounded at about 9:15 p.m. to a request by a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper in locating a stolen vehicle in the Dunn area.
The vehicle was supposedly behind a trailer house in the area, but searches were conducted at several residences on King Road and Oakridge Road and it wasn’t found. There are no suspects.
•A deputy was dispatched at about 12:15 a.m. Jan. 29 regarding a report of peace disturbance at the Evening Shade store on Highway AW. A man there told the officer four trucks had been spinning tires at the location, and that he didn’t know who the drivers were but wanted to ask for extra patrol in the area.
•A Bucyrus woman reported on Jan. 28 that a neighbor man’s dogs had killed four of her cats. An investigating officer made contact with the man, and he was given a verbal warning to maintain better control of the dogs.
•A deputy was dispatched at about 10:30 p.m. Jan. 20 after a woman reported kids shining laser pointers and flashlights outside her U.S. 63 residence at Houston.
Upon arrival, the officer was told by the woman that all the kids had run off, and that they had been bothering her dog and playing games in the adjacent woods.
The officer searched the area, but was unable to find evidence of anyone but the home’s residents having been there. Based on the woman’s description of the situation, the officer determined she had likely been seeing city light and phone tower lights and that a bunch of kids probably hadn’t been there.
•An officer was dispatched Jan. 22 regarding a report of peace disturbance at a Highway 17 residence at Roby.
The officer made contact with several Sho-Me Power workers at the location who said a man wearing a beanie and dark clothing had approached them and cussed at them and threw things at them. They said the suspect had left shortly before the deputy arrived. The officer searched the area and didn’t find the suspect.
•A deputy was dispatched at about 5:20 p.m. Jan. 21 after a woman reported a suspicious sound at her Highway AU residence at Houston. The woman told the officer the sound had shaken her house. The officer was unable to locate the source of the sound.
