Several persons were admitted to the Texas County Jail during the last week. 

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

•A 68-year-old man reported on April 5 that a large amount of trash had been dumped on his Emmett Kelly Road property at Raymondville, including a small refrigerator, lots of clothing and several boxes of various items.

An investigating officer found evidence in the trash that it belonged to a Houston man who lives on Grand Avenue. Houston police attempted to contact the suspect at the apartment he lives in, but without success. Investigation is ongoing.

•Christopher L. Trentham, 34, of 8309 Mineral Drive in Houston, was issued citations for driving while intoxicated, driving while revoked and failure to drive on the right half of the roadway after a traffic stop on Mineral Drive at about 12:15 p.m. March 31.

A Houston police officer on patrol on Forrest Drive observed a white GMC pickup weaving and driving off the roadway into a ditch, and then take a right turn at Mineral Drive and continue northbound before eventually pulling over.

A deputy also in the area observed that the driver – Trentham – displayed signs of being drunk and field sobriety tests were conducted. He was taken to the Texas County Jail for a 12-hour hold period.
