The Texas County Sheriff's Department is investigating several thefts in the county. 

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

•A 57-year-old Cabool woman reported July 19 that a shed had been broken into at her Russell Drive property and several items with a total value of $1,465 had been stolen. There are no suspects.

•A 61-year-old Licking man reported on July 16 that two tractors had been damaged.

The man told an officer he had loaned a John Deere 2030 tractor to his 34-year-old son to cut logs at a Mooney Hollow Drive property, but the son had also taken a John Deere model 2460 without permission. The man stated that when he went there to retrieve the tractors, he found that the 2030 was missing its batteries and its muffler had been removed, and the 2640 had hood damage, a broken manifold and wiring had been removed.

An investigating deputy spoke to the son, and he reportedly said one tractor had a flat tire and the other had a starter issue.

A report was sent to the county prosecutor.

•At about 1:20 a.m. July 19, a 43-year-old Plato woman contacted 911 regarding a burglary in progress at her Elm Drive residence involving her 41-year-old former boyfriend.

The woman stated that the suspect was hiding in the basement and was armed.

An investigating deputy went to the location and made contact with both people, and the woman declined to pursue charges. They were advised of the 12-hour rule.

•A 22-year-old Success man reported on July 18 that a storage shed had been broken into at his Highway AN residence and several items with a total value of $10,900 had been swiped (including $9,250 worth of video gaming equipment, $1,500 worth of DVD movies and two Japanese swords).

An investigating deputy observed evidence of forced entry into the shed. A 34-year-old Cabool man is a suspect and investigation is ongoing.

•A 60-year-old Houston man reported July 18 that a Sig Sauer .45 caliber pistol valued at $820 had been stolen from his Fisher Drive residence. There are no suspects.
