Police reports


Grayson County S.O.

Assault and arrest — June 18, E. Texas Street, Denison area, Deputy Dusty Wainscott. Deputies were answering a 911 call regarding a domestic problem as the dispatcher stayed on the 911 line. She reported to the deputies that she could hear lots of screaming and yelling going on. At that time, Wainscott and another deputy arrived and heard the same noises coming from inside the house, and a male voice yelling. They knocked on the door and announced “Sheriff’s Office,” and the yelling stopped. They saw a man walking to the door, and he told them that he and his wife had been arguing.

They also talked to the wife, who said the argument started earlier when she did not bring him his beer home and it escalated to the point, the report states, that the suspect slapped her in the face. The report notes there was redness to both sides of her face and that an independent witness confirmed her story.

Deputies jailed the suspect on a charge of assault causing injury-family violence, to which bail was set at $2,500. Since his arrest, the Texas Board of Pardons & Paroles has added a charge of parole violation against him, and he remains incarcerated.

Burglary of residence, Tom Bean area — June 18, FM 902, Deputies Joe Ross, Javier Soto, Raymond Clark. Deputies investigated the burglary of a home on FM 902, and found no forced entry.

Theft by scam-fraud — June 18, Deputy Tommy Carter. A complainant told Carter, according to the report, that he wired $4,146 to a woman whose name he provided for purchase and payment of a 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. It had been listed on Craig’s List. When his bid was accepted, he was told to make the payment through eBay Motors VPP, according to the report, and he gave the Sheriff’s Office the address in Indianapolis, Ind., of the business.

Then, he did not receive the jeep and began checking his records. He learned that the money had been picked up in Ohio, but Western Union security would not release information on the identity of the person who picked it up until law enforcement became involved. Law enforcement is now involved and continuing the investigation.
