The Texas County Sheriff’s Office and its deputies were involved in a series of significant incidents on Wednesday, August 2, 2023. They were dispatched to a residence on Venable Drive in the Success area after receiving reports of domestic violence. The suspect, a 46-year-old male who was wanted on a felony arrest warrant and identified as a sex offender, was believed to be present at the location.
