The Houston Police Department recently handled several investigations that led to citations or arrests.

The following are excerpts from reports generated by the Houston Police Department:

•Jason M. McCrath, 43, of 300 Ozark St. in Houston, was cited for driving without a valid license on Dec. 6.

•Michelle R. Tilton, 42, of 422 King St. in Houston, was issued a citation for stealing under $750 after allegedly shoplifting at Walmart on Dec. 8.

•Gary R. Alliston, 57, of 7415 Country Club Lane at Houston, was issued a citation for first-degree trespassing on Dec. 9.

Alliston was cited after an officer was dispatched at about 7 a.m. regarding a report of an intruder at the Piney Inn on Grand Avenue. Upon arrival, the officer made contact with a 48-year-old man and 57-year-old woman who said they had awakened to find an unknown man asleep in a chair in the living room.

The officer observed the sleeping man and woke him up. Alliston then stated he had been riding his bicycle past the Piney Inn at about 2 a.m. after leaving a nearby bar. He said he was cold and went inside, where he located a door and opened it.

Alliston reportedly said he thought the door led to a lobby, so he sat in a chair and fell asleep.

•Chance A. Hebblethwaite, 22, of Rolla, was issued citations for driving while intoxicated, driving while revoked, failure to signal turn, failure to wear seatbelt, failure to drive on the right half of the roadway, no insurance and displaying plates of another after a traffic stop on Second Street at about 11:30 p.m. Dec. 1.

An officer wrote the tickets after observing a brown Ford truck driving on the wrong side of Pine Street and then coming to a stop in the middle of the road. The officer then observed the vehicle turn onto Second Street without signaling and then into an alley behind a local bar.

After making contact with the driver, the officer smelled alcohol. Hebblethwaite was taken to the Texas County Jail.

•Duane L. Jordan, 31, of 8270 Highway ZZ in Mountain Grove, was issued a citation for stealing under $750 after allegedly shoplifting at Walmart on Nov. 20.
