Texas County deputies handled several recent investigations. 

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

•A West Plains Police Department officer called July 23 to request assistance in locating a stolen firearm.

The officer said a man had reported that a Baikal IJ-70 Makarvo 9-millimeter pistol had been swiped, and that the only people he knew who had been inside his home and could have known of the gun were a couple living at a Country Aire Lane trailer park at Cabool. A deputy made contact with the suspects, and they said they had stayed at the man’s residence but knew nothing about a stolen pistol.

•Texas County 911 on July 23 requested agency assistance with a 37-year-old man who was extremely drunk and possibly having a seizure at an Elm Drive residence at Plato.

An investigating deputy spoke to a 22-year-old woman there who said the man has multiple heart conditions and might have been convulsing after throwing up. An ambulance crew arrived and the man declined to be taken to a hospital. The officer cleared the scene at about 1:30 a.m.

•A 60-year-old Licking woman reported on July 10 that neighbors were shooting her vehicle with a BB gun outside her Kitchem Drive residence.

The woman told an investigating deputy she could see where BBs had hit the vehicle, but the officer was unable to see any evidence of BB damage.

The officer contacted the woman’s neighbors and they said they don’t have a BB gun and hadn’t been shooting one.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 10:45 a.m. July 10 regarding a report of a prowler at a Highway 38 residence at Bucyrus.

An 85-year-old woman who lives there told the officer she saw someone in a field across the road from her house. The officer was unable to locate a suspect.

•A 27-year-old woman called just after midnight July 20 to report her grandfather was missing from her Hickory Drive residence at Plato. While an officer was on the way there, the woman called back to report her grandpa was in a hospital in Lebanon and not missing.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 10:15 a.m. July 1 to assist the Summersivlle Police Department regarding a report of a man with a gun at a Highway 17 residence at Summersville.

A 31-year-old man who lives there told the deputy a former employee had come to his house and pointed a gun at him. The officer gave dispatch a description of the suspect’s vehicle, and the Missouri State Highway Patrol was contacted to be on the lookout for it.

•A deputy responded at about 4:50 p.m. July 17 after a woman who wouldn’t identify herself called to report dogs in a cage at a Morton Road residence at Houston.

An investigating officer observed puppies in a cage that had shade, food and water. A person at the location said the puppies were about to go to a new home and were in the cage waiting to be picked up.
