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

On May 29 at 9:55 a.m., a resident reported that a goose had been shot with an arrow near the pond on East Hickory Ridge Circle and was still alive. Police referred the situation to the animal control vendor, who put the goose down. A game warden requested the arrow for further investigation.

On June 6 at 10:10 p.m., a caller reported that someone in another vehicle pointed a handgun at her at the traffic light at FM 407 and Hwy 377. The caller had honked at the other driver because he pulled out in front of her, and he slammed on his brakes.

On June 9 at 2:11 p.m., a resident of Cimarron Court reported that a bobcat ate her chicken, and now it’s stalking her miniature horse.

On June 10 at 7:31 a.m., the manager of the Subway restaurant said she received a call from the alarm company, and when she arrived the back door was ajar and there was a footprint on the counter. The money was still all there, however, and when the manager reviewed the security footage, she saw employees jumping over the counter, which is where the footprint came from.

On June 12 at 12:32 p.m., a resident called police to ask them to keep people from parking in the parking lot of the Wise Health Surgical Center. An officer explained that it was private property and not an enforceable matter.

On June 12 at 3:33 p.m., a caller wanted police to check on her aunt, who lives in Argyle. An officer made contact with the aunt, who said she’s fine but wasn’t feeling well and simply didn’t want to speak with anyone, “that’s why she’s been ignoring people.”

On June 13 at 8:22 p.m., a resident on Redbud Street reported that there was a band playing loud music at another home. An officer responded to the house, where the homeowner said the kid’s birthday party would be done shortly. The officer told the complainant that the party would end soon, but she said she wanted the music to stop, so the officer went back and shut down the party.

On June 17 at 6 a.m., officers moved four baby raccoons off the roadway on Crawford Road.

On June 18 at 8:36 a.m., employees at Argyle Town Hall reported a woman pulled into the parking lot and stood outside her vehicle praying for some time, and they were concerned for her welfare. The woman left before police arrived.

On July 15 at 12:34 a.m., a resident on Athens Drive reported some kids were running around and possibly “up to no good, could be egging houses.” An officer saw four boys, about 12-14 years old, and they ran, they ran so far away…
