Earlier this month, Weatherford-Parker County Special Crimes investigators and area law enforcement seized several weapons which are believed to have been stolen along with three ATVs and over two ounces methamphetamine after being prompted by anonymous tips.
Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said SCU members conducted an investigation which led them to an undisclosed address in northern Parker County, where a search revealed a small amount of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, three handguns, an assault rifle, various ammunition, a scope and 2.11 ounces of methamphetamine.
Parker County will participate in a nationwide effort to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft. The Parker County Sheriff’s Office will work in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration and other government, community, public health and law enforcement partners in a “Take-Back” initiative, in which a designated deputy will collect potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs for destruction.
“The service is free and anonymous with no questions asked,” Fowler said. “And no identification will be required to participate in the program.”
Sheriff’s deputies responded to two shooting calls over the Labor Day weekend.
Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said both shootings occurred Sunday, Sept. 5, 2010, but were unrelated and in separate parts of the county.
The first incident occurred around 11:30 a.m. in the 1200 block of Knob Hill Road, in Azle, where a 16-year-old juvenile was shot in the face with a .22 rifle.
Investigators said the victim found the weapon, which belonged to his mother, in a closet. The victim’s sibling did not observe the shooting, but told deputies his brother had been playing with the weapon when it went off. A sheriff’s report stated neither boy believed the rifle was loaded.
