Police deal with weekend troublemakers


Mineral Wells police said an otherwise quiet weekend in Mineral Wells was disturbed by the reports of two hit-and-run drivers and a few other lawbreakers.

The first hit-and-run occurred Sunday around 7 p.m., according to police, and involved an unidentified vehicle running through a residential lawn in the 1400 block of S.E. 12th Street.

Reports indicate the driver hit a mailbox, fence, wooden container, trash cans, and a resident's pickup truck before driving away from the scene.

The complainant could not provide a description of the vehicle or its driver.

A second hit-and-run collision happened Monday around 11:30 a.m. at the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 1195 and South Loop, police said.

According to reports, someone crashed into a stop sign at the location and a Palo Pinto County deputy recovered the sign a short time later.

Reports did not include a description of the vehicle involved.

A storage facility in the 2500 block of East Hubbard Street was burglarized Monday, police said.

Reports show the facility's property manager reported someone broke into one storage building and removed more than $2,500 worth of items including appliances, televisions, an air hockey table, and a mattress.

According to reports, the building's lock appeared bent and dented as though someone removed it by hitting it with another object.

Police also reported a theft at a church in the 100 block of N.W. 4th Avenue Monday around 4 p.m.

According to police, the complainant reported a wallet was stolen from her purse while she was cleaning.
