Memorial Villages Police Department

From the 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.

Speeds have been creeping up across the villages over the past couple of weeks.  Please slow down and follow the speed limits that are posted. If no speed limit is posted, the speed limit is 30 MPH. School Zones are 20 MPH. As we move into spring we will be stepping up speed enforcement to help protect our kids and to keep the community safe.

The flyer for the 4th Annual Food Truck Rodeo has been completed and is attached to this week’s V-LINC, along with the Coffee with a Cop event, and Run, Hide, Fight presentation from the FBI. We hope that everyone can join us at these events.

Have a great weekend. Chief Ray Schultz
