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

•A 53-year-old Licking woman reported on Oct. 23 that several pieces of jewelry and numerous coins with a total value of $1,520 had been stolen from her Prescott Road residence.

The woman told an investigating deputy she came home and found the front door open, and discovered that several rooms had been rifled through and items thrown on the floor. The officer observed damage to the door jamb.

There are no suspects.

•Vikki L. Hebert, 48, of 17856 Highway H at Elk Creek, was issued a citation for stealing after allegedly swiping 120 scratch-off lottery tickets from Cody’s One Stop store at Raymondville. Hebert was identified as the suspect via surveillance video from the store.

•A 64-year-old Houston man reported on Oct. 28 that several items with a total value of $5,500 had been stolen from the office of his business on U.S. 63.

The man told an investigating officer the swiped goods included three saddles, two guns and more. The officer observed pry marks and damage to the front door. Investigation is ongoing.

•A 59-year-old Licking man reported on Oct. 23 that two guns with a total value of $700 had been stolen from his Cameron Road residence. There are no suspects.

•A deputy responded on Oct. 24 to a report of cattle theft at a Highway Y property at Elk Creek.

A 44-year-old man there told the officer he had been gone for a few days and when he returned, the unreported number of cattle were gone. He said he was in the process of divorcing his 46-year-old wife and that she might have something to do with it.

Deputies from the Texas County Sheriff’s Department were called to several investigations in the last week.

The deputy contacted the woman and she said she did take the cattle  because they were hers.

The officer advised the man that the matter was civil and he would need a lawyer to pursue it in court.
