The following is a summary of incident reports recently made to the Argyle Police Department as compiled by the staff of The CTG:
On Aug. 1, at 3:55 p.m., an attempt to deliver a citation to a resident in the 300 block of Red Bud was unsuccessful; no one answered the door; a successful delivery finally occurred at 11:56 p.m.
On Aug 9 at 2:30 p.m., an officer referred an animal bite report to All American Dogs. The caller was trying to break-up a fight with a Lab and his Boxer, which was the dog that bit him.
On Aug. 19 at 9:30 a.m., there was a report of a loose calf near Old Justin and C Taylor Road. He was reported running back and forth trying to get back inside the fence where his mama was. It was reported that a person from public works showed up and was able to reunite the calf with his mama in the pasture.
At 2 p.m. on Aug. 19, a follow up to a report from a residence in the 300 block of Red Bud resulted in a caller being told the electricity is back on and an oxygen tank can be picked up.
On Aug. 22 at 10:45 a.m., a report of a black steer on the run on W Jeter Rd near S. Gibbons Rd. was received. An employee of an area rancher was being sent to see if it belonged to them.
At 11 a.m. on Aug. 22, a woman called saying she wanted to report being harassed by a person who wanted to buy her purse listed on Craigslist and was concerned when he texted if he could buy her lunch at Earl’s Pizza when they met. After she said no, he no longer wanted to buy the purse. The caller was told that, although it was a no-so-smooth move, no criminal offense had taken place.
