Texas County deputies are investigating several crimes in the county.

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

•A 37-year-old woman reported on June 14 that she had found the door broken open at a residence she owns on Success Road at Success. An investigating officer determined a male tenant had kicked the door in after locking his keys inside the home.

•A 45-year-old Willow Springs woman reported at about 8:30 p.m. June 15 that her 25-year-old son was missing from their Timberline Road residence.

The woman told an investigating officer that the family had searched the surrounding area but had not found the missing man. She said he had sent some texts hinting about suicide.

The woman reportedly found the man the next day in Eminence and he was fine.

•A Raymondville man called June 17 to report a break-in at a Highway B residence.

The man told an investigating officer that a man and woman at the location had a U-Haul trailer loaded with his possessions. The suspects told the officer the items in the trailer belonged to them.

The officer then asked the man what he had missing and he said a saw, but couldn’t think of anything else. The suspects told the officer they gave the saw back to the man about a week earlier.

The man said he was glad the two were leaving and that he needed no further help from the officer.

•A 33-year-old woman called June 18 to report that a man was at the Flat Rock river access holding a handgun out the window of his car.

An investigating officer made contact with the man, 19, who said the gun was actually a BB gun that looked just like a revolver. The officer said it looked real and was scaring people. The man apologized, and said he would no longer be a problem.

•A 45-year-old Willow Springs man reported on June 11 that several items with a total value of $1,350 had been stolen from a property he owns on Dogwood Road at Mountain Grove.

The man told an investigating officer that swiped goods included an air compressor valued at $500 and a fertilizer spreader worth $500. He said he wasn’t sure when the theft had occurred, but that a neighbor had experienced a theft a week earlier and it could have happened the same day.

•Deputies were dispatched June 15 regarding a report of an 11-year-old girl threatening herself and others with a knife at a Hayes Drive residence at Houston.

Sheriff’s department blotter

After a brief standoff, a deputy was able to take the weapon from the girl, who was reportedly holding a 12-inch butcher knife and was backed up in a small laundry area adjacent to the home’s kitchen.

She reportedly allowed a deputy to get close to her to show him a necklace she was wearing. At that point, the officer shined a flashlight at her face and snatched the knife away.

The incident reportedly began when the girl put mud on the car of 18-year-old girl’s boyfriend. The child was sent to a hospital for a 96-hour evaluation period.
