Theft — Dec. 5, 2500 block N. Travis, Officer Tony Walden. Medications were reported stolen while the owner was asleep in an apartment. Witnesses told police, according to the report, that several people had come into the apartment after the complainant went to sleep.

Theft — Dec. 2, 200 block E. Wilson, Telephone report. Between midnight Sept. 2 and midnight Nov. 25, someone took refrigerators, a stove, and a gas heater from a rental property. Police have suspects to investigate.

Theft — Dec. 2, 4100 block Town Center, Officer John Phares. A business asked police to investigate the disappearance of about $1,000, taken over a two-week period from a cash register. Police have a suspect to investigate.

Theft — Dec. 2, 4800 block Texoma Parkway, Officer Brian Nichols. A woman reported that a person she knew took her car while she was shopping. The value is more than $1,500.

Theft arrest — Dec. 3, 4800 block Texoma Parkway, Officer John Phares. Phares reported that he was called to a store at Midway Mall, who said a man, described to police, had walked out of with about $500 in clothing. Phares found the suspect still inside the mall and, after store employees identified him, found the described clothing inside his vehicle. He jailed the suspect on a charge of theft and the suspect posted $1,500 bail in surety bonds later Saturday.

Theft — Dec. 3, 600 block S. First, Officer Jeremy Jones. Taken was a blue 2000 Ford Mustang. The owner said the keys had been left inside it. It is valued at more than $1,500.

Theft by scam — Dec. 4, Officer Tim Gann. A complainant said he had been contacted by a man saying he was a lawyer for one of the complainant’s relatives from California, but who allegedly was in the Dominican Republic. The caller said the relative had been in an automobile accident and needed money to pay for the other person’s car. The complainant wired $3,900 to the Dominican Republic.

The next day, he became suspicious and called the relative, who had not been in an accident.

Forgery of prescriptions — Dec. 2, 425 N. Highland, Officer Jeremy Jones. A complainant said that an insurance comany notified her that a patient had been getting numerous prescriptions from her office. The complainant said that she looked into this and determined it was an employee who had been calling in her own prescriptions without the complainant’s authority. The investigation continues.

Assault — Dec. 5, Officer Chris Carson. A victim said that she lives with a man who got into an argument with her. It became physical when he pushed and hit her. She and a witness, the report states, said that the man pushed her to the ground and tried to drag her back into their residence. He also is accused of choking her.

Because this is the third time in one month that the suspect has been jailed on a charge of assault causing bodily injury, police jailed him on a charge of assault-family-2 or more times within 12 months. He was also jailed on the same charge in early November and again Dec. 2, according to Grayson County Jail records, and was out on a total of $4,000 bail at the time of this incident. The previous bail bond companies took themselves off the previously posted surety bonds. Now, he remains in jail on that charge, plus violation of protective order with prejudice, and the two previous assault charges. His total bail is now set at $24,000, and there are conditions set on him if he does post bail.
