Aug. 28: Verbal dispute — A woman told deputies she took money from her husband’s wallet to buy lottery tickets for her father. When she returned, her husband yelled at her for spending money.
The couple continued to argue outside. The husband then called his mother to help him pack his clothes so he could move out of the house. He told deputies the furniture in the home was his, but his wife could have it.
The deputies left but were later called back to the house, as the husband and wife were arguing over belongings. It was determined a kitchen table belonged to the husband’s mother. The husband was attempting to take all of the furniture. The deputy told the couple he could not divide their belongings and would have to resolve that issue in civil court.
The husband and his mother left the area.
