The following are excerpts from reports generated by the Texas County Sheriff’s Department:
•A deputy was dispatched at about 6:10 p.m. Oct. 8 regarding a report of drugs found at a Burton Branch Road property at Success.
A man who lives there told the officer someone had trespassed and was fishing in a pond on the property. The officer and man went to the pond and found a tackle box with a bag of pills in it.
The pills were determined to be of the over-the-counter variety and not controlled drugs. They were disposed of.
•An officer responded just after midnight Oct. 14 to a report of a barking dog at a Northview Lane trailer park at Houston.
The officer made constant with a woman there who said a dog was locked inside a trailer and she didn’t think it was being cared for. The officer was unable to get anyone to answer the door of the trailer in question, but the dog came to a window with no curtain and appeared to be healthy and in good shape.
•A deputy was dispatched at about 4:10 a.m. Oct. 4 regarding a call to assist an ambulance crew at a Hidden Valley Road residence at Mountain Grove.
The response occurred after a woman called 911 to report that her 59-year-old husband was complaining that a live snake had entered his body through his urethra and was trying to crawl out his throat. The officer determined the man suffers from several mental disorders. The man reportedly cooperated with the ambulance crew and was taken away for treatment and observation.
•A deputy was dispatched to a Tiffany Drive residence at Houston on Oct. 15 for an agency assist call from a Howell County Sheriff’s Department officer.
The Texas County officer was advised that a hit-and-run accident had occurred at a corn maze on Highway AM in Howell County and a suspect lived at Tiffany Drive and owned a Ford SUV.
The deputy made contact with the woman who owned the vehicle, and she showed the officer damage on it. She also stated her daughter had been driving.
Information and photos were forwarded to Howell County authorities.
•A deputy investigated a reported burglary Oct. 10 at a Grassy Road residence at Summersville.
A 61-year-old woman who lives there told the officer a collector’s coin valued at $135 and a weed eater valued at $250 had been swiped. Entry to the home was reportedly made through an externally-mounted exhaust fan. There are no suspects.
•A deputy responded at about 4:10 a.m. Oct. 11 to a report of a prowler at a residence in a Northview Lane trailer park at Houston.
