Desk of Chief Ray Schultz,
keep harping on this, but once again we had a crew of car burglars hit the area
in and around the villages again last night.
The one thing that these crimes have with similar cases is that all the vehicles
were left unlocked. Our detectives have been busy working all day on this most
recent rash of cases. Using the ALPR system, we were able to identify the
suspect vehicle which is a rental 4-door, white with a black top, Jeep
Gladiator, displaying Texas license plates of SPL7361. Detectives are working on
obtaining subpoenas in hopes of identifying the renter. In the meantime, as a reminder please be sure
and lock your vehicle doors every time you leave your car or truck.
On March 18,
2023, from 9 am to 1 pm, the MVPD will be hosting a “Coffee with the Cops”
morning event at the Hunters Creek Farmers Market. Residents and guests will have the opportunity
to stop by and meet the MVPD command staff, our officers, and our dispatch team.
We will be joined by the Houston FBI Office who will present their “Run, Hide,
Fight” program and what to do should you ever find yourself present at an
active shooter situation. The exact times have not yet been set for the FBI presentation,
but it will be held at the church facility. We are hoping that we can host the
presentation beginning at 11 am with a second one starting at noon if we have a
strong interest. So, this will be a great opportunity to check out the farmers
market, get a cup of coffee and meet many of us, see our drone in action, sign
up for a future RAD class, and learn about active shooting events and responses.
This past Sunday
the MVPD hosted the Ferrari Club of Houston for their Annual Groundhog Day Meet
and Greet and Road Rally. 30 high performance cars met at the PD and held their
annual car show and ride. Thanks to
everyone who stopped by to check out the cars. We look forward to next year and
an even larger group of cars.
A few of you
asked what happened last Monday that required us to shut down Memorial for a short
while? Check out the attached picture to
see exactly what the issue was. Fortunately, no one was hurt. The driver did
receive a citation for his inattentiveness and a bill for the damage he caused.

we had a faulty, newly installed electrical transformer overheat. The smoke required
us to evacuate the building so VFD could check things out. During the
evacuation and clean-up, our phone lines were transferred over to Hedwig
Village PD. Our thanks to both Village Fire and Hedwig PD for their assistance.
Everything is up and running and a new transformer has been installed.
