Police logs

Police logs are entries from the daily reports from Dallas Police Department and Polk County Sheriff’s office. Not all calls are included. The status of incidents reported may change after investigation.

Nov. 17 at 9 a.m., in the 17000 block of Brown Road: Polk County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call for an injured buck that had no horns or spike. The deputy called UGM, with no luck and left a message for Turtle Ridge to call him back if they wanted the deer. The homeowners called another animal rescue and asked the same. The homeowners were going to take the deer back to their residence and field dress it while they waited for a call back. The deputy told them if they didn’t hear from him or a wildlife center in the next few hours to use the meat the best they could as it should not go to waste.

Nov. 17 at 9:16 p.m., Orchard Heights Park: A deputy contacted a husband and wife out on a date night. They were trying to finish a conversation before going home to the kids, around the corner. The deputy told them for future reference, the park closed at sunset but he she had no objection to letting them finish their conversation.

Nov. 18 at 1:50 a.m., Salem Dallas Highway NW/Riggs Street NW: The driver of a vehicle pulled over to take a phone call and fell asleep. When a deputy contacted the person, the vehicle’s engine was running, the vehicle was in par and the headlights were on. The deputy spoke with the driver, who did not display any indications of impairment.

Nov. 18 at 9:49 a.m., in the 5700 block of Highway 22: Deputies investigated a burglary. Two locks were cut off of two different outbuildings. A gas can was stolen.

Nov. 20 at 8:45 a.m.: A deputy went to a residence for a welfare check on man who had called his caretaker to tell her he had dropped his cigarette and could not pick it up. The man is on hospice and could not move from his bed. He welcomed the deputy into his home. The cigarette had gotten stuck between the sheets and didn’t make it to the floor so the man was able to retrieve it. The man requested his nurse come to his residence and she said she could be there in a few hours. The man asked the deputy to brew him some coffee, so the deputy did. No further action.
