Memorial Villages Police Department

From the Desk of Chief Ray Schultz

Thank you to everyone who participated in or assisted in making this years Twinkle Light Parade a huge success. The parade went off without a hitch and everyone had a great time, enjoying the floats, caroling, hot chocolate and the snow.  We saw several large groups of neighbors who had gathered along the route enjoying each other’s company. The number of children was the largest ever both along the route, and at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church. The snow play area was packed with children and adults alike.  I even saw several officers throwing snowballs and having fun.  A special thanks to Bunker Hill city staff for all of the coordination and to MDPC for opening up their facility. Also, to the Memorial Villages Police Foundation for sponsoring the MVPD float and the snow area. I have attached a few pictures from the parade to the weekly report. There will be additional pictures being posted on the MVPD Facebook page over the coming days.  

While visiting with residents last night at the parade I received a very interesting comment from a couple that has recently moved to the area. They were telling me how much they enjoyed the parade and how special the parade was because the parade occurred right in the community. They stated that usually, you have to drive downtown or to a commercial area in order to see a parade. They especially enjoyed the Villages parade because it was right in their backyard where the backdrop was the area decorated homes, and not an “Arby’s”. They said the parade was nicer being held in a community of million-dollar homes and not along a street of strip malls. I have to say, I agree. 

This morning we were serenaded by a group of young women (students) from Magnolia School who stopped by the MVPD and dropped off cookies and other goodies and to sing Christmas songs to our staff. Thank you.

Congratulations to our newest graduating class of R.A.D. students. The group of 11 finished up the training by practicing their physical skills on instructors. This closes out the 2022 RAD year. Stay tuned for information about our 2023 RAD schedule.

School finishes up today for the holiday’s. That will mean more children out and about over the next 2 weeks. Remember to pay extra attention and slow down when traveling through the villages. We want everyone to have a safe Christmas season.

On December 21, 2022, there will be a special Farmers Market in Hunters Creek Village at the First Congregational Church located at 10840 Beinhorn. Market hours will be from 3pm – 7 pm.

Yesterday on December 15th, 2022, members of the MVPD assisted the Memorial Exchange Club in spending the morning with seniors of the Mission Centers of Houston. The exchange club provided a morning of BINGO, served a hot lunch and distributed Christmas gifts to approximately 90 people.   A special thanks to the Exchange Club and the Schwartz family for allowing us to assist.

The "Stormy Rock" has not yet been located and returned to the MVPD. (See attached picture of the rock). If you find the rock, return it to the MVPD and you will receive a Stormy Doll for her return. Stormy is lost somewhere on Hunters Creek City Hall Property. Search near the bottom of one of the many trees where she likes to lay and help get her home.  Good Luck. 

Have a great weekend. Chief Ray Schultz

The victim is a contractor working on a construction project in the area.  The victim had just left a bank in the 6400 block of San Felipe after cashing a check and returned to the job site.  As he exited his vehicle, a Chevrolet Impala pulled up and a large framed, black male wearing all blue clothing exited the vehicle, approached the victim and knocked him to the ground before pulling an envelope that contained cash from his pocket.  The male then jumped into the rear seat of the Chevrolet and fled the area. Officers utilized the ALPR system and located the suspect vehicle that had followed him from the bank.  Officers identified the license plate that returned to a Cleveland, TX address.   Officers went to the Cleveland address and learned that the license plate had been stolen from a vehicle of the same make, model, and color in Houston.  A comparison of the rear of the vehicle, verified that the vehicle in the robbery was a different Chevrolet Impala.
