A woman called police Saturday to report catching her 15-year-old granddaughter buying marijuana.
The woman said the teen is staying with her because of trouble with her mother. The girl appears to be addicted to marijuana, the woman said.
At about 8 p.m. a car pulled up in front of the house and stopped. The girl ran outside and spoke briefly to the driver, and the woman said she believed the girl was purchasing drugs.
When she returned to the house, the grandmother asked her about the incident and the girl claimed she was just greeting a friend who stopped to say hello.
The woman asked her son, who is a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper, for help. She told the girl to hand over the marijuana or she would search her.
The girl finally turned over a small packet of marijuana, a police report states.
The trooper handed the packet, zipped into a small plastic bag, over to the police officer, and the girl was detained on juvenile charges.
800 block of West Eagle Drive — A woman told police Sunday that another woman attacked her at a bar, apparently because she danced with the wrong man.
The woman said she was sitting in the bar at about 1 a.m. and a man asked her to dance. She accepted and danced with him.
When she sat back down, she saw the woman giving her “dirty looks,” she said.
She sat down with the woman she came with, and the other woman continued to glare at her, finally getting up, walking over, and hitting her several times in the head, chest and face with her fists, the report states.
She and her friend decided to leave the bar and the woman started to follow them out but was held back by an employee of the bar, she said.
13500 block of Pruett Road — A woman reported that a neighbor stole her medication with her in the house Sunday.
The victim said that while she was sitting in her living room, the neighbor walked in through the kitchen door without knocking.
The neighbor said she was bringing back some clothing her son had borrowed, according to the report. She asked if she could have a cup of coffee from the pot that was in the kitchen.
She then opened the refrigerator door, which blocked her from line-of-sight vision from the living room.
But the victim’s cabinet doors are mirrored and she could see the woman’s reflection in one of them.
She watched the woman reach into her purse, which was hanging by the back door, and take her medications from inside, the report states. Then she left.
