police reports

• July 31: Officers responded to a domestic disturbance call at Petro’s Truck Stop. Upon arrival and speaking with the first complainant, officers determined it was a possible kidnapping. The first complainant stated he and the victim were hitching a ride from Texarkana, Texas, with the driver of the truck. They stopped at the truck stop. The suspect told the first complainant to get out of the vehicle and get him a hamburger. As the victim started to get out with the first complainant, the suspect told her to stay in the vehicle and presented a handgun. The suspect then drove off with the victim getting off I-40 Eastbound. The first complainant had the phone number for the second complainant, who when contacted stated she had seen the victim and the first complainant at a motel in Mount Pleasant, Texas, yesterday. The daughter was also able to give more updated information on her mother. The first complainant added the suspect told him he had to drop his load somewhere in Virginia. Due to the weather, the first complainant was advised to go to the driver’s lounge to stay out of the heat and when officers went to speak with him again he had left with no way to make further contact. Officers spoke with a dispatcher who stated that without trailer or license plate numbers, he could not advise as to the driver or the location of the truck.

• Aug. 1: A police officer was fueling his vehicle at a gas station off Campbell Station Road when he observed a man come out of the gas station and get into an Oldsmobile and pull forward striking the curb. The man stopped by the officer. The man had a very strong odor of an alcohol about his person and had multiple empty beer bottles and cans in the front passenger-side seat of his vehicle. The man was given field sobriety tests on which he did poorly. Upon a record check, it was discovered that his license was revoked for failure to report an accident and also he violated the implied consent law by refusing to submit to a blood alcohol test.
