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 deputy responded Nov. 3 to a request by the Cabool Police Department for assistance in an investigation.

Upon the deputy’s arrival, a police officer explained that a 6-year-old girl had allegedly been sexually abused by a 15-year-old boy outside the city limits. A Missouri Division of Family Services representative was on the school district campus talking with the victim and her father.

The county juvenile office was contacted and investigation continues.

•A deputy was dispatched Nov. 4 to Texas County Memorial Hospital to assist a woman who is a representative of the Missouri Division of Family Services.

The DFS rep told the officer a woman had a baby the previous night that tested positive for methamphetamine, and she wanted the officer there while she spoke to the baby’s parents. She also stated a doctor was going to sign paperwork to have the child removed.

•An officer on Nov. 2 investigated a reported theft at a Highway MM location at Cabool.

A 72-year-old man told the officer a combine radiator,  a Stihl chainsaw and four truck batteries with a total value of $1,780 had been stolen from his mother’s property. Several people were named as suspects and investigation continues.

•A representative of Raymondville School reported on Nov. 2 that a car had been sitting in the parking lot for at least two weeks.

An investigating officer found that the car wasn’t registered as stolen. The officer explained the school could have the car towed at the owner’s expense.

•A deputy responded at about 9 a.m. Nov. 2 to a report that a man and woman were sitting at Raymondville City Hall apparently smoking marijuana. The officer made contact with the pair and didn’t find anything illegal.

•A deputy was dispatched Nov. 1 regarding a report of property damage at a Business U.S. 60 residence at Cabool.
