Last Friday during our huge mail theft arrest and investigation there was a second mail theft investigation coming to a conclusion. Over the past several months our detectives had been working several cases of mail theft from area USPS mailboxes located just outside of the villages. The Postal Inspectors Office had enjoined us and Hedwig PD in the investigation and our detectives and investigators worked in collaboration and were able to successfully get an indictment on our suspect. Read the US Attorney’s Office News Release (attached) for additional details. Great job by both teams of detectives in putting together this large and complex case.

Yesterday afternoon officers and detectives attempted to arrest another serial mail thief who was in our area looking to steal more mail. When officers attempted to stop the suspect, he fled from our officers driving on the wrong side of the street. When the vehicle turned going towards Hunters Creek Elementary School officers called off trying to stop the suspect for the safety of the community. Minutes later, the suspects vehicle hit again on an ALPR as he was now driving the Longwoods neighborhood, again looking for mail.

Once again officers responded to the area. Upon seeing the officers, the vehicle fled driving recklessly towards Duchesne Academy.  Again, officers did not pursue out of an abundance of caution and due to safety. The good thing is our officers were able to positively identify the suspect as they clearly saw him. Detectives are obtaining another arrest warrant for this serial offender. Hopefully, the next time he is arrested he will stay in jail and not get another trip through the revolving doors of justice. In the meantime, please remove your mail as soon as possible each and every day. Good work by our patrol team.

This weekend we celebrate Labor Day. Unfortunately, this weekend is also known as a drinking weekend, meaning we expect to see additional drunk drivers on street across the metro area. Please be extra careful if out driving, especially during the evening hours. We will have officers out looking for drunk drivers and will have no problem arresting them and towing their vehicles.

Have a great weekend, Chief Ray Schultz rschultz@mvpdtx.org
