Argyle Police Blotter

The following is a summary of incident reports made to the Argyle Police Department as compiled by the staff of The CTG:

On July 24 at 6:12 a.m., an officer saw a Lyft driver going in circles on Country Club Road. The officer stopped them to see if they needed help, and ultimately gave the passenger a ride to his construction job.

On July 28 at 8:58 a.m., a resident on Meandering Creek Drive reported finding a ladder leaning up against his house. An officer talked to a neighbor who said her ladder was missing, and she thought her son and his friends were playing outside the day before and got a toy stuck on their neighbor’s roof and tried to climb up to retrieve it, leaving the ladder.

On July 28 at 4:13 p.m., a caller reported that a couple was loading their car with donated items from the donation box in front of the Exxon at FM 407 and FM 1830.

On July 30 at 3:41 p.m., a resident in the Country Lakes neighborhood reported that someone threw tomatoes at several homes during the night.

On July 30 at 4:23 p.m., a resident on Charyl Lynn Drive reported that his/her roommate pawned their guitars and other property.

On July 30 at 6:57 p.m., a resident on Old Justin Road reported that her dog went missing, and was later found dead in a neighbor’s yard, apparently killed by the neighbor’s dogs, which also bit the caller’s husband.

On July 31 at 2:10 p.m., a driver reported several people were asking for donations for their church at the intersection of FM 407 and Hwy 377. Some were banging on the doors demanding money, a caller said, and they were at times standing in the middle of the road. The church group volunteered to leave when an officer told them they couldn’t stand in the roadway.

On Aug. 3 at 8:24 p.m., an officer stopped in the 800 block of East FM 407 because a dog was loose in the roadway. “I caught him with my own bare hands as he licked me profusely,” the officer wrote.

On Aug. 4 at 6:57 p.m., a caller reported a woman in a white dress went into a 7-11 store on FM 407 (in front of the Harvest subdivision) and bought alcohol, then sat in the parking lot for a while before circling several times and leaving, swerving on the road in Argyle and unable to maintain speed.

On Aug. 5 at 1:04 p.m., a resident on Creekside Trail called police about a snake, possibly a Copperhead, seen in the garage. The snake was hidden in the corner behind some large boxes. The officer tried to reach with a shovel and bring it out, but “the snake’s head fell off while I was trying to remove it from the corner.” The dead snake was put in the dumpster.

On Aug. 5 at 7:46 p.m., a caller reported a Jeep sitting on top of the bridge over I-35W (around mile marker 78) and the caller feared the people may be trying to drop things on passing vehicles.

On Aug. 9 at 8:19 a.m., a woman reported a driver on I-35W in Argyle in a yellow Camaro with black racing stripes driving aggressively. The woman told police that the other driver kept waving something at her, possibly a gun, and aggressively forced her into the grass median.

On Aug. 16 at 10:11 a.m., a caller reported a man was masturbating in his vehicle in the parking lot of the Argyle post office. An officer issued the man a citation for indecent exposure.

On Aug. 16 at 6:22 p.m., a caller reported that someone in another vehicle threw pennies at their car on Country Club Road.
