Texas County deputies recently handled several investigations. 

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

•A deputy responded at about 12:10 a.m. March 19 to a report of a peace disturbance at a residence in a Morton Road trailer park at Houston.

The report indicated a man and woman were fighting and could be heard on the other end of the trailer park. Upon arrival, the officer observed trash strewn all over the yard and all over a car parked there. He made contact with the man and he said the woman had been drinking and had thrown bags of trash on the car.

The woman told the officer she was mad and thrown trash around, The 12-hour rule was put in place, and the officer warned the two that if he had to return, one would have to go to jail.

•A man called March 19 to report that another man had threatened to burn down his grandmother’s Grassy Road residence at Summersville. The man making the report said the other man was mad because he had to move out of the house.

•A 45-year-old Rogersville man came to the TCSD office on March 18 to report that his 67-year-old stepfather had stolen $1,400 worth of scrap metal from his Highway 38 business at Cabool and sold it to an adjacent scrap metal business.

The man said he didn’t wish to pursue charges, but wanted to give the suspect a chance to pay him back.

•A deputy responded on March 14 after a man reported finding child pornography on his grandfather’s computer at his Big Creek Road residence at Yukon. The officer observed photos on the computer, and determined that none depicted child pornography or any type of nudity or sexual acts.

•A man called March 16 to report that his 62-year-old brother was going through a divorce and had shot up his Malburg Road residence at Elk Creek.

An investigating officer made contact with the man, who was intoxicated and had shot numerous holes in the home’s living room floor. He was taken to the Texas County Jail for a 12-hour safekeeping period, and six guns (two rifles, two shotguns and a pistol) were removed from the residence and placed in the TCSD evidence room due to the nature of the incident.

•A Cabool man came to the TCSD office on March 15 to report the theft of a vehicle.

While the man was filling out a theft report, he received a call on his cell phone indicating his mother had borrowed the vehicle without telling him.

•An officer was dispatched at about 4:20 p.m. March 14 after a Licking woman reported that her grandchildren had gotten into a fight at their Osage Lane residence and one had struck another with a crutch. The kids were taken to the hospital to be checked out and a report was sent to the county juvenile office.

•A deputy responded on March 8 to a report of a peace disturbance at a Kell Road residence at Summersville.

The officer made contact with a man who lives there who said a neighbor man had driven up to a fence line, revved up his vehicle and fired shots from what he believed was a shotgun. The man told the officer he heard shot falling onto his house.

He stated he didn’t want to press charges, but said this was the second time he had reported a similar incident, and he wanted the other man to stop.

The officer made contact with the neighbor man, 54, who said he was tired of people messing with him all the time and neighbors harassing him and wanting him to move. He also said there are people always watching him from the woods at night and that people are constantly riding ATVs all night on nearby roads.

The deputy and a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper stayed in the area for a while but were unable to locate ATVs.
