Just a few hours ago our nightshift team received a
hit notification of a stolen vehicle entering the villages. Our dispatchers immediately initiated our
notification protocols and alerted officers who flooded the area. Within minutes
one of our sergeants spotted the stolen vehicle occupied by 3 individuals. Other officers assisted and conducted a high
risk stop of the stolen vehicle. Inside,
officers located one subject with an outstanding warrant for robbery, and
another male with warrants for drug possession. A female inside the car was
holding methamphetamine and sitting on a semi-automatic handgun. Also, inside
were ski-masks. All 3 were arrested and
the stolen car was recovered. We are
pretty confident that these 3 individuals were up to no good and our officers
most likely thwarted a more serious crime from occurring. Great job by our
officers and dispatchers in getting these 3 suspects and a gun, off of the
Yesterday evening just before this arrest, this same
team was patrolling the villages keeping an eye on our trick or treaters.
Thanks to everyone for slowing down during the evening and keeping a lookout
for kids traversing throughout the neighborhoods.
Since we are speaking of traffic, I want to give everyone
a heads up that we will be stepping up traffic enforcement on Blalock, meaning
more speeding tickets. Residents who live in both Piney Point and Bunker Hill
along Blalock Road have expressed concern about increased traffic and speeds.
Residents attempting to exit side streets on to Blalock as well as walkers
crossing near Quail Hallow/Greenbay have witnessed speeding vehicles and have
voiced their concerns. Each week our
officers on all shifts target specific areas due to speeding or accidents. These areas almost always include; Voss,
Gessner, Memorial near San Felipe, Memorial near Thamer, Warrenton, Kuhlman and
Piney Point Road. Remember the villages
is known for our quality of life and streets with safe speeds and less noise
contribute to that.
With the passing of Halloween, we start to head into
the Holiday season. It is hard to
believe that Thanksgiving is just over 3 weeks away with Christmas 4 weeks
later. The holiday season is the time of
year where we need to be extra vigilant, especially with our use of
credit/debit cards. Many criminals are
hoping that with the increased use of cards that you will not be monitoring
your statements as close and they can “skim” your accounts/cards and use your
stolen ID/accounts longer before being discovered. The next 3 months is a time
where it is important to closely monitor all of your financial records. Check
accounts on-line whenever possible. Mobile apps allow you to see your accounts
real-time. A routine of checking accounts daily, can help avoid problems, as
well as making it much tougher on criminals to steal your identity. More on
this topic over the upcoming weeks.
Thanks to the residents who gave up their Rockets and
Texan Tickets and donated them to the MVPD this week. Many of you who called said you had Astro’s
tickets and were attending their games either here or in Washington, and while
we were all rooting for the Astro’s, they did give it one heck of a run.
Several members of the team to include players and staff live in the villages. All of us here at the MVPD are extremely
proud of the 2019 season. The Astros
have nothing to be ashamed of, they played hard, they played with heart, and
they fought to the very end. Watch out
2020! I know where they will be next
Have a good week. Chief Ray Schultz firstname.lastname@example.org
