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:

•Trevor A. Light, 25, of 12549 Kitchen Drive, No. 3, in Licking, was issued a citation for stealing after a deputy’s investigation of a stolen battery charger on Aug. 28. The charger, valued at $25, was reportedly swiped from a neighbor’s residence and Light tried to sell it to a man who lives on Reed Road.

The deputy reported that Light admitted to the crime when questioned.

•A deputy was dispatched Aug. 19 regarding a reported theft at a Colburn Road residence at Cabool.

A 68-year-old man who lives there told the officer he had ordered a smokeless rolling black action for a firearm he is working on from a company in Nevada. The man said the unit (valued at $400) had been shipped on July 27 and delivered on Aug. 1 or 2, but he still didn’t have it.

The man stated he contacted the Post Office with a tracking number but nobody there had any further information. He reportedly found a priority mail container between his mailbox and Beeler Road and he told the deputy he was going to look further down the road to see if he could locate anything else of interest.

•A 29-year-old woman reported on Aug. 21 that four ladders and a two extension cords with a total value of $385 had been stolen from a site where a house was being built on Sand Hollow Road at Bucyrus.

Investigating deputies found a ladder leaning against a tree on an adjacent property, but it didn’t appear to be one of the missing units.

While searching the property, the officers reportedly found three marijuana plants in the back yard. They were seized and disposed of.

Investigation continues.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 6:30 p.m. Aug. 27 regarding a fight in progress at a Kitchem Drive residence at Licking.

Upon arrival, the officer made contact with a 30-year-old woman who said a 31-year-old woman had kicked her in the right temple, eye and forehead during an argument. The officer observed bruising and swelling in the injured areas.

A probable cause statement was sent to the county prosecutor seeking an assault charge against the alleged assailant.

•A deputy was dispatched Aug. 26 regarding a reported domestic dispute at a Colburn road residence at Cabool.

Dispatch advised the officer a 30-year-old woman stated she had been assaulted by her 23-year-old girlfriend. The deputy made contact with the alleged victim at a Zimmerman Street residence and she said the incident began when she looked at her girlfriend’s phone and saw she had received a text from a man. She said she confronted the girlfriend about it, but was then pushed down and choked.

The woman told the officer she got away, but the girlfriend grabbed her waist, threw her to the ground and choked her again. The officer reported seeing no marks on the alleged victim’s neck.

The officer made contact with the girlfriend, and she said the other woman had charged her over the text and she had pushed her away to protect herself.

Neither woman wanted to pursue charges, and the 12-hour rule was implemented.
