Deputies responded to many calls in the county recently. 

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

•A deputy was dispatched at about 12:30 a.m. Feb. 14 regarding a report of a fight at a Highway AD residence at Cabool.

The man making the reports told 911 a 42-year-old woman had hit her 20-year-old daughter and the victim had told him there was blood everywhere. The deputy and a Cabool police officer arrived at the scene and made contact with the woman, who said there had been no fight. The daughter was also contacted, and she also told officers there had not been a fight.

The girl also stated her parents were separated and each had made attempts to get the other arrested. She said she believed her dad had called in the report.

•A deputy was dispatched to Texas County Memorial Hospital just after midnight Feb. 9 for a possible rape victim.

The officer made contact with a 38-year-old woman there who said she had been raped the previous day at the “party spot” on Panther Creek Road. She told the officer she had been run off the road at the location by a blue Chevrolet flatbed truck and that three men told her to get out of her vehicle.

The woman stated that two of the men held her down and the other (who had been driving the truck) raped her.

She said the suspect had a tattoo of a cross under one eye and of a teardrop under the other eye. Investigation continues.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 11:40 a.m. Feb. 6 regarding a report of a hostage situation at a Boiling Springs road residence at Licking.

Upon arrival, the officer made contact with two men (ages 62 and 31) and a woman (age 61) and determined that no hostage situation existed. Instead, the issue was that the younger man wanted to leave and his mother wouldn’t take him anywhere.

A computer check revealed that the 31-year-old man and an active warrant out of Boone County. Jon M. Larue was arrested and taken to the Texas County Jail.

•A 57-year-old Licking woman reported on Feb. 5 that a storage unit of hers at a Highway BB facility had been broken into and several items with a total value of $3,800 had been stolen. The woman said swiped goods included a generator and a gun safe containing several firearms.

There are no suspects.

•Nicholas M. Jones, 27, of 18100 Highway B at Houston, was issued a citation for fourth-degree domestic assault after allegedly hitting a 51-year-old woman during an incident at his residence on Feb. 14.

•On Feb. 10, a 49-year-old Bucyrus woman reported that her 1999 Dodge Durango had been stolen from her Peacock Lane residence. An investigating officer determined the vehicle – which needed repair and didn’t run – hadn’t been swiped, but had been moved from the property by a friend.

•A 48-year-old Houston man reported on Jan. 24 that his soon-to-be former wife, 39, was trying to kill him by putting something in a drink to make him overdose.

An investigating deputy noted in a report that due to the man making many false reports in the past, he was told the allegation was serious and he would have to come to the TCSD office to fill out a voluntary statement and participate in a recorded interview.

The man said he understood and would make time to come in. The deputy is waiting for the man to arrive.
