The following are excerpts from just some of the reports recently generated by the Texas County Sheriff’s Department:
•A deputy was dispatched to a Buck Hollow Lane residence at Licking at about 11:50 p.m. Feb. 22 after a 22-year-old Beulah man reported that his truck had been stolen.
The man told the officer he was inside at a friend’s house and when he came outside his truck (of unreported make and model) was gone. On Feb. 28, the officer made contact with the man again as a follow-up, and the man stated he and a friend had gone driving around looking for the vehicle and found it on Ware Road.
•A deputy on Feb. 17 investigated a report that the children of a 32-year-old Houston woman had been kidnapped by her former husband.
The woman told the officer the suspect had taken the kids to Oklahoma and was refusing to let her speak with them. She stated there was no court-ordered visitation or custody in effect.
The officer made contact with the man and he said he had stage 4 cancer and was living with his former wife in Oklahoma. He said he had one child in common with the woman and that the child was in his custody.
The woman told the officer she would go to the TCSD office to file a report, but she never showed up. The deputy noted in a report that since there was no official parenting plan in effect, there was no crime committed.
•A 45-year-old Licking man called Feb. 13 to report that several checks of his had been stolen from his mother’s Highway AF residence.
The man told an investigating deputy that the checks were from an account he had closed about 10 years ago. He stated his former wife had advised him that she found a check at her Edgar Springs residence that written for $490. The man told the officer he suspected that his 24-year-old son was the culprit.
•A 44-year-old Raymondville woman reported on March 1 that someone had caused rocks to hit her 14-year-old son by spinning the tires of a truck outside her Highway B residence. A 35-year-old Houston man is a suspect.
•A deputy was dispatched Feb. 22 regarding a report of a possible domestic assault at a Vernon Lane residence at Mountain Grove.
The deputy made contact with a 34-year-old woman there who said her 62-year-old mother had tried to hit her. The woman said she didn’t want to file a complaint and didn’t want the officer to speak with her mother because she was sleeping and had health issues.
The officer determined that no physical altercation had taken place.
