It looks like we will be having another hot weekend ahead of us. Please don’t forget about outdoor pets and ensure that they have plenty of water and access to shade or cooled pool rooms, garages, or patios. Heat indexes are expected to be above 105 degrees both Saturday and Sunday.

The 4th of July is a little over a week away and there is still plenty of room in the parade, so anyone who is interested in joining in on the fun is asked to register with the Hunters Creek City Manager, Mr. Tom Fullen at tfullen@cityofhunterscreek.com   Additional good news about the parade is that candy will be allowed to be thrown during the event, so plan on finding a place along the route before 9:45am on the 4th and maybe you will be lucky enough to grab some sweet treats.

Traffic patterns continue to change in the area along Taylorcrest and Bunker Hill Road. Please try and avoid the area if at all possible. Detours and road closures will be continuing for several more weeks.

Earlier today MVPD Officer Patrick Torres broke his leg while assisting on a medical call. Officer Torres was assisting in getting a patient down from an attic area of a home when he fell from the folding staircase. We expect Officer Torres to be off work for about 6 weeks as he recovers.

Detectives this week have been busy following up on a burglary investigation from last week.  Following up on a hunch and utilizing the department ALPR system detectives located a suspect’s vehicle near the area of the burglary at the time of the crime.  Additional reviews of other nearby video surveillance footage also captured the suspect vehicle at an adjacent property.  Detectives are now working on obtaining a warrant for the arrest of this repeat offender.  More great work by our team of detectives of utilizing all available resources to solve a crime that years ago would have gone unsolved.

Have a great weekend.  Chief Ray Schultz rschultz@mvopdtx.org
