A caller reported seeing smoke and flames in the 1000 block of East Hickory Hill Road as he drove by. Officers found a grass fire.

A resident on Harpole Road told Argyle police about receiving harassing phone calls from a person in reference to a computer virus scam. The resident told the caller to stop calling but the caller then “became vulgar and has continued calling.”
