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

•On March 16, a 50-year-old Bucyrus woman reported several suspicious incidents at her Suzan Drive residence.

The woman told a deputy that someone had cut the cables her dogs were tied to and one of the animals was missing. She also said someone had unlocked her turkey cage and let the bird out, and that her granddaughter told her someone in an old white truck had been driving by slowly and watching her.

She said her main concern was the truck.
