The following are excerpts from reports generated by the Texas County Sheriff’s Department:
•A deputy responded at about 6:10 p.m. May 21 to a report of a possible burglary at an Emery Road residence at Bucyrus.
The woman who lives there had called stating she was out of town and had been told the front door to her home was open and her animals were out. Upon arrival, the officer observed that the door was secure, no animals were out and nothing was out of place. The officer advised dispatch to contact the woman and advise her what she had been told was unfounded.
•A deputy was dispatched at about 6 p.m. May 24 to assist an ambulance crew at a residence in a Northview Lane trailer park at Houston. Upon arrival, the officer observed that a 53-year-old man had fallen through a mirror and cut a golf ball-sized chunk out of his forehead, down to the skull.
The man was acting angry and erratic and the ambulance crew was concerned that they might need help with him. The man became cooperative and was taken away in the ambulance.
•A 58-year-old man came to the TCSD office on May 24 to report that he and his grandson had been attacked by a 57-year-old Elk Creek man with a butcher knife at his Grogan Road residence. The alleged victim said he was unsure if he wanted to pursue charges, but that the Lebanon Police Department had taken a statement from the grandson.
An investigating officer contacted the Lebanon PD and was told there was no record of a statement from the grandson. The officer contacted a neighbor man and asked if he knew anything about the situation, and he said the assailant had stopped at his home prior to the assault and said he was going to get them to leave his house or cut them if they didn’t.
•An Elk Creek woman reported on May 23 that a blue 2008 Pontiac G6 had been stolen from her Highway H residence. After an investigation, a deputy sent a probable cause statement to the county prosecutor seeking charges against a 27-year-old Yukon man.
•A deputy was dispatched May 22 regarding a report of tampering with a motor vehicle at a Highway BB residence at Licking. A man who lives there told the officer that water and dirt had been put into the fuel tanks of his tractors and a truck. There are no suspects.
•A deputy responded May 23 to a report of failure to control an animal at a Highway 17 residence at Success.
The officer made contact with a 60-year-old man who lives there who said a 31-year-old neighbor man’s pit bull had gotten into his trash and when he tried to run it off it became aggressive toward him so he shot and killed it with a shotgun.
