Law enforcement agencies are investigating several burglaries and thefts including a break-in at a storage facility, where a household's worth of property was taken.

Deputy John Harper was dispatched Wednesday to the facility on the Old May Road in Early, where two units were burglarized. A man told Harper he had moved his daughter's household property into one of the units and his daughter is attending a school in Galveston, Harper's report states.

The unit had been filled nearly to the top, the man told Harper, as he had made three trips with a flatbed trailer to get all of the items placed inside.

The man said he would provide a list of the stolen property. A partial list of stolen items included appliances, a bed and a thick, expensive mattress and several plastic storage bins.

Fewer items were missing from the other unit that was burglarized — two boxes of dishes and an antique child's rocker.

In other incidents:

• Harper met Tuesday with a representative of Kool Kreations, a business on Highway 279 that builds and repairs docks. A shipment of two encapsulated flotations was reported missing.

Deputy Terry Sliter was dispatched Tuesday to County Road 290 in Zephyr, where a Sky Trac lift was missing.The owner said he'd been in Mexico taking care of some business and when he returned the item was gone.

• Deputy Robert Ramirez made a traffic stop Wednesday afternoon on the Bangs Highway about a mile west of Brownwood and arrested six undocumented workers. The six had been working in Abilene and were returning to their homes in Austin.

An immigration hold has been placed on the six, and they will be deported, sheriff's officials said.

• Yusef Imani Reown, 17, of Brownwood, turned himself in to Brown County Jail Tuesday afternoon on a warrant for possession of marijuana under 2 ounces, Early police said. Early officer Stephanie Haile made a traffic stop on Dec. 16 and seized several items of drug paraphernalia. Officers initially were unable to access the inside of a container. The owner said it was empty. Once access was gained officers located marijuana.

The marijuana charge was later dismissed when Reown pleaded guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia in a plea bargain, court records show. 

• Brownwood officer Danny Hutchins was dispatched Monday to the 900 block of Booker, where a man reported the theft of his .38 caliber Colt Agent revolver. The firearm has a 2-inch barrel and reported its value at $1,400.

• Hutchins took a report at the Law Enforcement Center about the loss of $120 in a vehicle burglary in the 2000 block of First.

• Officer Jesse Mares was dispatched Tuesday to the 300 block of Bluffview, where an identification card and debit card were taken from a vehicle.

• School resource officer Fred Bastardo was notified Tuesday of a student with alcohol at the high school. The student was cited for minor in possession and placed in the Disciplinary Alternative Education Program for 45 days.

• Mares was dispatched to the 1000 block of West Commerce, where a business owner said an employee stole stools from the shop.

• Officer Gary Villalpando was dispatched Tuesday to the 1700 block of Avenue C, where juvenile was caught inhaling air duster for a "quick high." The juvenile was taken to the Brown County juvenile detention center.

• Officer Zane Taylor was dispatched Monday to Murphy USA, 403 W. Commerce, on a report that an ex-employee is suspected of stealing several items.
