The following are excerpts from some of the reports recently generated by the Houston Police Department:

•Kenneth D. Lee, 48, and Tiffany J. Mourning, both of Licking, were each issued citations for tampering on Oct. 2.

An officer was dispatched at about 7:30 p.m. regarding a report of vandalism of a slot machine in a business on Grand Avenue. Upon arrival, the officer saw a red Dodge sedan leaving the location and stopped it.

Mourning was driving and Lee was a passenger, and they claimed Mourning bumped the machine but nothing else had occurred.

The man who owns the business was contacted and he provided security video showing the pair kick and shake the machine until money fell out of it.
