(from 7/22/21) … just
before noon, officers were alerted to an aggravated robbery that had just
occurred along the walking path in the 11700 Block of Greenbay. A resident was walking along the path when he
was approached by a black male. The male suspect assaulted the victim causing
injury to both of his arms and pushed him to the ground causing a head injury.
The suspect took the victims phone and a handgun from him before fleeing east
on Greenbay towards Flintdale. The
suspect was described as a black male wearing a light-colored long sleeved
zipper hoodie type jacket. The suspect was missing several teeth. Officers
arrived in the area and rendered aid to the victim. The victim was transported
by VFD to an area hospital for treatment.
Last week we had this horrific crime occur in our community
and our detectives continue to follow up leads as they aggressively work this
case. Their investigation has taken them across the metro area and has included
subpoenas for financial records and IP data. Something else that has occurred
is tremendous outreach from the community, ranging from prayers for a speedy
recovery for Mr. G. to offers of food for his family. We have reached out to
Mr. G.’s family and they are humbled by the overwhelming community support,
thoughts and prayers. Mr. G. continues on his path to recovery. We want to
thank everyone for your help in looking for video footage and for letting us
know of things that were observed around the time of the crime. Our investigation continues as do our
enhanced patrols throughout the community.
Also, a couple of weeks back we had a theft of jewelry
from a residence that was perpetrated by some contractors who were at the home
doing some work. Detectives have been working this case and got a break when
they checked some interior home video surveillance footage. The footage does
not actually show them take the item, but it does have them talking about the
missing item and the value of it. This is extremely strong evidence to have.
Detectives were able to use the evidence to obtain an arrest warrant for the
suspects. This investigation continues.
This case got us at the PD to start talking more about
the value of internal video monitoring especially when workers/contractors are
present. Whether it is a web camera, indoor camera, baby monitor etc… these are
valuable tools that can be used to help protect your home and property during
construction work or remodeling. We
suggest informing the workers that cameras are present, so they know. Workers
and contractors should also be identified by name, so you know who is in your
home. Most contractors will tell you if you ask. Valuables should be removed or properly
secured. Every year we investigate
several thefts that are committed by on-site workers, installers and/or repair
persons. The investment into an interior home camera or two is worth the
nominal cost and can be a tremendous help if they should ever be needed.
I often speak of how lucky we are to work in such a
supportive and giving community. This week we were treated to cookies and
gourmet donuts, Torchy’s Tacos and tickets to last weekend’s Astros Games. We
also were surprised by two very generous donations to the Memorial Villages
Police Foundation. As always thank you for your continued support.
One of the areas where the Foundation assists our
employees is with College Scholarships for their children. This week, several of our employees are off
to colleges across the region with their kids, helping them get settled
in. Thank you for helping them make this
possible. Our team of professional
officers and dispatchers are grateful to be able to serve in such a supportive
This week Bunker Hill City Hall dropped off resident
packets for Officer Boggus to give to new residents. The stack of packets was
for approximately 15 new families who are moving into the villages – Welcome.
Officer Boggus meets new residents, introduces them to the villages and to
V-LINC. We are fortunate that the popularity, safety and quality of life here
in the villages attracts new families who want to live and work here. We continue to see more and more young
families with elementary aged children.
This is also a good reminder for everyone who is out and about driving,
that we all need to slow down just a little. Our quality of life begins with
our quiet, safe and sane streets. Speeding is a zero-tolerance infraction, so
please drive safely.
Have a great weekend. Chief Ray Schultz email@example.com
