THIEF HOLLOW CREEK. Thief Hollow Creek rises seventeen miles southeast of Roaring Springs in extreme southeastern Motley County just north of the Dickens county line (at 33°51' N, 100°35' W) and runs north for five miles to its mouth on the Tongue or South Pease River (at 33°53' N, 100°34' W). It flows through dense gullies, low hills, and steep slopes with locally high relief, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
