Just another reminder that there will be no Trick or
Treating on Warrenton between Valley Star and Memorial Drive on Halloween (this
includes Kilts Drive). Due to extensive
construction and open ditches and trenches there will be no pedestrian/foot
traffic allowed. Officers will be posted in the area during the evening.
Warrenton remains one-way traffic only with limited parking. Please obey all
signage and directions from construction personnel during work hours. Citations
are being issued to all violators.
MVPD Foundation Annual Clay Shoot is quickly
approaching. November 1, 2019 is this year’s annual clay shoot. There are still
just a few positions open to round out our last teams. If you are interested in
shooting or just sponsoring, please contact Officer Frank Lerma via email at email@example.com
Criminal Mischief, also known as Damage to Property
can easily add up to thousands of dollars. A resident recently came outside in
the morning to find that during the night someone had egged their vehicle.
After several attempts to clean off the egg were unsuccessful, the owner
learned that the egg had damaged the paint to the point that the trunk lid
needed to be repainted, costing over $1000. While some kids may think that
egging, soaping windows, destroying decorations or toilet papering may be just
in fun, the potential damage that can occur makes it anything but harmless.
Persons found damaging property can be charged criminally as well as be sued
for any damages. Please help us keep an eye out for any vandals or wayward
children over the next week. Our goal is to always protect you and your
property, and our proactive patrols will be extra vigilant this fall season.
The Villager Farmers Market continues to be a huge
success. Each Saturday morning hundreds of consumers visit the open-air market
in search of fresh fruits and vegetables. While most folks have been doing a
great job of parking in proper locations, some occasionally improperly park
blocking important emergency access. Please remember that additional parking is
available at City Hall and is only a short walk away.
This week we had another success with the use of our
Automated License Plate Readers (ALPR) as you will read below. What makes this
capture unique is that a bank security camera did not capture the suspect’s
vehicles license plate, but an ALPR did as the suspect followed the victim into
the villages after leaving the bank.
Detectives were able to use the ALPR to read the temporary tag on the
suspects vehicle and use this information in their investigation. Great work by
our patrol officers and detectives.
Have a great weekend. Chief Ray Schultz firstname.lastname@example.org

Unattended Death. MVPD officers were dispatched to the area after Houston PD
had received information of a possible deceased individual in the Bayou. Upon arrival officers located the remains of
a deceased male, approximately 60-70 years old. Through investigation, detectives
and the medical examiner were able to determine that the subject had taken his
own life. Detectives were able to
identify the male who was known to be homeless. Detectives are working with
area service providers in an attempt to notify next of kin.

Credit Card Abuse. The victim reported that 2 charges were attempted on their
credit card that had been declined as possibly fraudulent, however, the company
delivered the items anyway. On one occasion the driver had asked for a
signature and when the victim refused, the driver took the package and left.
After the second package was delivered the victim had brought the item inside
the residence and later an unknown female was seen at their front door on the
video doorbell. Information about the
credit card and the purchases was obtained and provided to detectives for their
follow up investigation.

1-100 Block of Oak Lawn. Burglary of a Vehicle. The victim had just made a
withdraw from a bank, north of I-10 and returned to a job site to check on
construction work. Upon returning to his vehicle, he found that it had been
burglarized. The victim thought that he
might have been followed from the bank to the job site. Officers reviewed video
from the bank and could see a black dodge follow the victim from the parking
lot. The cameras also showed the suspect vehicle did not have a front license
plate. Believing the victim drove past a
village ALPR, the victims license plate was checked against the ALPR and
located. Following directly behind the
victim was the same black dodge from the bank. Upon further review, detectives
could read the temporary license plate on the rear of the dodge and through
MVD, identify the owner of the car. Through investigation the vehicle has been
linked to other crimes in the Houston area. Detectives are working the case
along with other agencies in apprehending the suspect.
