Here are investigations handled by the Texas County Sheriff's Department that were released during the last week. 

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

•Deputies on Dec. 26 were notified that a 16-year-old Summersville boy had not returned from church to his Cherry Street residence.

The boy’s 61-year-old grandmother told officers she believed he had run away again with a pair of 18-year-old Mountain View girls he often spends time with and has run away with before.

The Shannon County Sheriff’s Department and Mountain View Police Department were contacted. One of the girls is known to drive a 2005 Mazda sedan, possibly silver.

County juvenile authorities and the Division of Family Services were also advised. Investigation is ongoing.

•A representative of CenturyLink reported on Dec. 21 that five telephone poles and about 500 feet of wire had been stolen from the junction of Highway 137 and County Road 3780 near Willow Springs. The representative said the theft occurred at about 2:30 a.m. and the damage estimate was $30,000.

There are no suspects.

•A 79-year-old man reported a theft at an Upton Road property on Dec. 4.

The man told an investigating deputy he was the caretaker of the property and the man who owns it lives out of state. The man said a John Deere riding mower and a Campbell Hausfeld air compressor with a total value of $1,625 had been swiped from a shed on the property.

There are no suspects.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 11:50 p.m. Dec. 19 regarding a report of trespassing at a Boone Creek Road residence at Licking.

A 52-year-old man who lives there told the officer two men and a woman had been beating on his door and wouldn’t leave. He said they finally left a short time after he called the TCSD.

The officer searched the area and was unable to find them.

The deputy was dispatched back to the scene at about 12:30 a.m. regarding a report of gunfire. The man who lives there this time said he had gone outside and started shooting his gun.

The officer reportedly told the man that wasn’t a great idea considering what he said had happened earlier. The deputy looked for the trio again, and this time located them on Highway 32. They were advised that if they returned to the man’s house, they would be cited for trespassing. They said they wouldn’t go back.

•A deputy was dispatched Dec. 10 regarding a report of drug paraphernalia found next to Long View Road at Elk Creek.

The officer made contact with a man there who said he had found a black glove containing several syringes and a medicine bottle containing an unknown substance. The items were seized and disposed of.

•A deputy on Dec. 25 investigated a report of an 18-year-old female missing from a Split Limb road residence at Raymondville.

A 56-year-old woman who lives there told the officer the missing teen is mentally handicapped, but doesn’t have a state-appointed guardian and is considered an adult.

Several deputies made calls to known friends of the missing teen, but she was not found. Later the same day, the woman reported that the missing teen had returned and was sorry she had caused problems.
