December 25

  • A deputy transported a female inmate to a prison unit in Gatesville.

 December 27

  • A suspicious person and vehicle were reported by a neighbor at an abandoned house in the 2000 block of East Elliott Street. The neighbor provided a description of the person, the license plate and pictures of the vehicle. The sheriff’s office responded and found the vehicle at a location nearby. A 61-year-old male was issued a criminal trespass warning for the vacant property.

January 2

  • A deputy transported two Stephens County inmates to a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison near Abilene.
  • The sheriff’s office assisted Breckenridge Police Department with a male who was involved in a domestic disturbance in the parking lot of the Law Enforcement Center. The male was arrested and booked into the jail for assault on a public servant, resisting arrest, and assault family violence. The sheriff’s office then conducted a serial number check on firearms in the male subject’s vehicle, and one of them was determined to be stolen from Tanglewood Island in December 2007. This firearm will be returned to its owner.

SHERIFF’S NOTE: Write down all the serial number, make, model and other unique descriptors for your firearms, electronics and other valuable items. Store your list in multiple locations and formats, and then give that information to law enforcement in the event the items are stolen. That is the best way that law enforcement can detect and retrieve your stolen property.

The course was put on by The Betty Hardwick Center, a local provider for mental health services. The center also serves juveniles, and many of their services are free to the patient.
