Authorities are investigating several crimes in the county.

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

•Deputies were dispatched July 27 regarding a report of a burglary at a Kitchem Drive residence at Licking.

A 25-year-old man who lives there told officers that numerous tools and an Xbox 360 had been stolen. The deputies observed a broken window that was the likely point of entry. Investigation is ongoing.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 2:20 p.m. July 27 to check the well-being of a woman at a Highway NN residence at Mountain View.

Before making contact with the woman, the officer was advised she had two active Mountain View municipal warrants. The deputy arrived and arrested Emma Tanner, 26. She was taken to the Texas County Jail and held for pick-up by the Mountain View Police Department.

•A woman from Taylorville, Ill., called July 9 to report that she had paid a 40-year-old Cabool man $3,650 for him to fabricate 13 pieces of custom furniture for her, but she had not received any items.

The woman told an officer she had been contacted by the man on March 15 and was told the furniture was ready. She said she brought a trailer to Texas County to pick the items up, but when she arrived she found out none of the furniture was complete.

The woman stated the man promised to deliver the furniture on three other dates, but the outcome was the same. She also said the man had recently listed the completed items for sale on Facebook and would no longer return her calls or reply to messages.

A deputy went to the man’s Vernon Lane property on July 9 and observed that of the 13 pieces of furniture the woman had ordered, only six were complete. A probable cause statement was sent to the county prosecutor seeking charges against the man.

•Officers were dispatched July 14 regarding a report of a burglary at a Long Valley Road residence at Huggins.

A 32-year-old man who lives there told officers that numerous items with a total value of $22,760 had been stolen. The man named a woman and two men as suspects. Investigation is ongoing.

•A 43-year-old woman came to the sheriff’s department at about 10:20 p.m. July 24 to report that her 42-year-old boyfriend has assaulted her at their U.S. 63 residence at Houston.

The woman told an investigating officer the man had become angry at her for waking him up and had hit her in the face with a pillow. She said she wished to pursue criminal charges and a report was sent to the county prosecutor.

The man and woman were each advised of the 12-hour rule.
