Deputies were sent to a home on Sirfield Street Sunday night because of a man who had overdosed.
He said he wanted the officers to shoot him, according to the report.
That was different from what he allegedly told a dispatcher.
When the man called 911, he reportedly said if any deputy responds he better be single with no family as he will do what he has to do to protect himself.
He also said he would kill to protect himself.
The man was taken to the hospital where he reportedly refused to cooperate with the staff.
With the help of deputies, hospital workers were able to sedate the man, the report states.

Neighbor accused of being trashy

Police met with a man from Cherry Street onJuly 25 who said he found a bag of trash in the ditch on his property that was allegedly thrown there by his neighbor.
He said over the years he has had problems with his neighbor throwing soiled diapers and dirt clods at his house.
He said he thinks the neighbor is mad because he asked him to keep his dog on a leash.
He said he is in the process of moving because of the issues so he said he did not want to press charges.

Threatening to take action

A man whose mother lives on Park Street called police July 24 and said someone has been knocking on his mother’s front door and running away before she answers.
He said it has happened early in the morning three times within a month and it scares his mother.
According to the report, the man said he has “had enough” and will “take action into his own hands.”
When asked to clarify his statement, the man reportedly said he would shoot the person through the door.
The officer told the man it would be best to call police but the man “did not want to hear what I was advising him to do,” the report states.
The man then allegedly said the next time police see him is when the coroner is on the scene retrieving the bodies of the suspects.
The officer promised more patrols would be made in the area.

Boyfriend uses truck as weapon

A 53-year-old Andrews woman escaped serious injury when she was apparently purposely hit by the truck her boyfriend was driving Monday afternoon.
The woman said the two had been arguing all day and he dropped her off at her house. He later called and asked her to meet him on Apple Street.
She was waiting by the road when she saw her 65-year-old boyfriend’s truck zig-zagging in the road as he was approaching.
He then hit her with the passenger side of the truck “causing her to turn sideways, go airborne and hit the side and back of her head on the concrete,” the report states.
The woman, who told deputies the suspect is married to another woman, was taken to the hospital for x-rays. The suspect was not located.

Child molested while on vacation

An Ohio woman, vacationing with her family in the Georgetown County portion of Garden City, reported her 6-year-old son had been molested.
The call to deputies came from a child services worker in Franklin County, Ohio.
The child’s mother had reported the adults she was with on vacation were in the kitchen of the home they rented and all the children were in the living room.
The woman said when she later walked in the living room she saw a 16-year-old male family member with his hand on her 6-year-old son’s thigh “as if he were touching the victim’s genitals.”
The teen denied doing anything wrong but the child said the suspect had touched him inappropriately.
He said it has happened several times in the past.
The teen’s mother admitted her son has touched other children on previous occasions and “has not gotten any help for this issue,” the report states.
The case is still being investigated.

Woman threatened by ex

An 18-year-old Georgetown woman said her 22-year-old ex-boyfriend of Andrews has been making threats.
The woman said she has received threatening calls from him both at work and at her home for the past several weeks.
On Monday he called and allegedly said he would choke her, knock her teeth down her throat and scratch her car.
The woman said she has a small child the man claims is his.
She said there is a possibility of three fathers but the child is the excuse the man is using to constantly contact her.
The woman said she has items such as a washing machine and other appliances at the man’s house that he has threatened to take to the scrap yard.
The case was expected to be presented to a magistrate for possible prosecution.

Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
