Texas County deputies recently handled several investigations. 

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

•A deputy was dispatched at about 7:45 p.m. May 13 regarding a report of peace disturbance at a Mineral Drive residence at Houston.

The officer made contact with a man who lives there who said neighbors were shooting guns which was making it hard for him to hear his television. The man also said he was concerned that the neighbors might not be shooting in a safe direction.

The deputy went to a neighbor man who showed the officer that the direction they were shooting in was safe. He also said they wouldn’t be shooting after dark.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 7:30 p.m. May 1 regarding a report of an assault at a Highway MM residence at Mountain Grove.

The officer made contact with a 47-year-old woman who lives there who stated she had been attacked by two women – ages 51 and 25 – who had hit her, bitten her and thrown her to the ground. A report about the incident was sent to the county prosecutor.

•A deputy investigated a report of a burglary May 8 at a U.S. 60 residence at Cabool.

A 58-year-old man who lives there told the officer numerous items with a total value of $8,701 were missing. The man named another man as a suspect. Investigation continues.

•A 58-year-old Houston man reported on May 12 that a chainsaw, lawn mower battery and the key to an ATV had been swiped from his Brown Hill Road residence. There are no suspects.

The probation officer stated the unit (valued at $1,860) had been intentionally set on fire, according to the company it was manufactured by (a representative confirmed that the fire started on the outside of the unit).
