From the Desk of Chief Ray Schultz,
Over the next several weeks, cabling crews will be
installing new network systems along Hedwig Road and the approaching rights-of-ways. These rights-of-ways will connect from both
Piney Point and Hunters Creek residences. Contractors will need to access the
yards of residences in both cities near Hedwig Road. The contractors will
attempt to contact homeowners before entering the yards. Please offer any
assistance as needed, especially by keeping pets inside while workers are in your
yards. Contractors will all have proper identification. We will have extra
patrols in the areas as well.
Officers Boggus and Vasquez have been busy putting
together a summer schedule of several special community events. On July 12,
2023, from 7pm – 9pm, the MVPD, MVPF and the Villages Stroll Magazine, will be
hosting an “Evening Glow Stroll” in Piney Point. The event will be held at Chapelwood United
Methodist Church. The MVPD will have vehicles, music and displays set up at the
church and we will be sponsoring free Kona Ice for everyone who attends. At dusk, there will be 1 mile stroll in the
neighborhood. Participants will be given glow sticks to help light up the
route. While the event is free, we are
hoping that attendees will bring a can or two of food that will be donated to charity.
The food donations will go to a local food bank to help those in need. This
will be a fun event for everyone, so be sure and put it on your calendar. More
to come about other events in next week’s V-LINC.
Yesterday, MVPD officers apprehended 2 car burglary suspects
who had just broken into 2 vehicles near Memorial Drive. An observant resident
had seen a car stopped in the roadway and a young male run from a construction
site, jump in the car, and speed off. Officers
were nearby and quickly stopped the car. Upon approaching the vehicle, they
found an air compressor in the backseat and a passenger sitting on a window
punch in an attempt to conceal it from officers. Other officers proceeded to
the area of where the suspect vehicle was first spotted, and they located 2
construction vehicles that had windows broken out and had been burglarized. The
2 17-year-old males were both placed under arrest and booked into the Harris County
Jail. One of the 17-year-olds was found to have previous arrests for
residential burglary. The stolen property was recovered and returned to the
owners. Our thanks to the resident who did not
hesitate and called 911. Her actions send a strong message to criminals, that our
community is not afraid to get involved and we will hold bad actors
Thank you to the residents who sent over Astro’s
tickets for both last weekend and again for this weekend. We have employees and
their families attending games tonight and Saturday. Thank You for thinking of
Earlier today the newest R.A.D. class graduated after
3 days of training. The 18 students
learned self-awareness and self-defense skills. Congratulations. If you missed this class and still want to attend
one, we will host our next class in July on the 10-12th. Contact officer Michelle Owens at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and to reserve
your place in class.
Aggressive driving appears to be on the rise again
across the metro area. Remember if you are out and about and find yourself in the
area of an overly aggressive driver or drivers. Don’t get mad and try to retaliate,
as things may spiral out of control. Just drive away from the situation or the aggressive
driver. In the meantime, we will
continue our traffic enforcement efforts in the villages by slowing down
speeders, red light runners and stop sign violators with citations.
Have a great weekend. Chief Ray Schultz email@example.com
