Desk of Chief Ray Schultz,
A couple of
weeks ago we had a rash of burglaries from unlocked vehicles in Hunters Creek
Village. Detectives took over the investigation and were successful in
utilizing the ALPR system in identifying a suspect vehicle. Detectives had
canvassed the area and were also successful in obtaining video of a possible suspect
but did not know his identity. The suspect vehicle was found to be associated
with a Katy residence. Detectives then
reached out to one of our new officers who had been a Katy detective to see if
by any chance he might be familiar with our suspect. And as luck would have it,
our officer did know the suspect from prior contacts. (he even knew his name
and provided our detectives with a photo of the suspect that matched the video
found at the time of the crime) They then contacted the suspect and were successful
in obtaining a confession to the vehicle burglaries. Detectives are in the process of obtaining a
warrant for the arrest of the suspect and his accomplice. This is a great
example of teamwork and highlights our philosophy of hiring experienced
officers from other agencies who bring their expertise to assist us in making
an even more effective crime fighting crime team.Thanks to Officer Salazar.
