Recent reports filed with the Liberty County Sheriff's Office include:
Leash-law violation — An officer responded to a dog bite that occurred on Robin Road.
The complainant said he was visiting a friend and had his dog in his friend’s backyard, which is fenced. Two other dogs pushed their way into the yard through a narrow opening in the fence and attacked the man’s dog. The dog reportedly sustained injuries that required $800 in veterinarian bills.
The same two dogs, pit bulls, broke into the same backyard about a month earlier and killed a rabbit. Environmental health has been notified of the incident.
Theft by taking — An officer responded to a call on Myrtle Lane in reference to gas being stolen from a vehicle.
The complainant said her car recently had been filled with gas, but when her husband drove it to work the next day, it shut off due to lack of fuel.
Hit-and-run — An officer was dispatched to Interstate Paper in reference to a hit-and-run. The complainant said she was parked near the edge of the parking lot and observed damage to the side of her car that was not present when she went in to work.
The timing of the damage was consistent with the shift change.
The suspect, who was caught on video backing into the complainant’s vehicle with his car, had left the scene of the accident and gone home. He was contacted and told to come to the Liberty County Jail to discuss the incident.
The man admitted hitting the vehicle, but said he didn’t know who it belonged to. He was arrested for hit-and-run.
