During the month of August, I made three beat contacts. On 080818, I met Annie Garza. Ms. Garza said that she has resided in the neighborhood for 13 years. She further stated that her only problem was one of the neighbors who occasionally plays their music too loud. I advised her to contact the Police Department whenever the problem arose. On 081418, I met Alma Soria. Ms. Soria advised that she and her family have been in the neighborhood for about 2 years and so far, has no complaints. On 082818, I met Karyn Hiles. Ms. Hiles said that she has been in the neighborhood for over 30 years and has no complaints. She further advised that her street is quiet.
I located a junk vehicle described as a 2001 Ford pickup, red in color, and bearing Texas license plate DXJ6163. The registration has been expired since August, 2015. The vehicle was parked in front of a residence on Edgewood Drive. I made contact with the owner, Antonio Soto. He advised that he is waiting on parts to repair the vehicle. I advised him of the junk vehicle ordinance. Mr. Soto advised that he would move the vehicle. I later checked and observed that the vehicle had been removed from public view.
All street lights in Beat 7 were found to be functioning properly. I did locate a defective street light at the northwest corner of Rufus Street and Center Street. The number on the pole is 32711-- --. The last 2 numbers were not legible.
I attempted to meet with Robert Flores, a registered sex-offender in Beat 7. I was advised by his family members that due to an incident that occurred at his residence, he is now in the hospital. I was further advised that once he is released, he will probably not be returning to the neighborhood. I advised ID Tech Chads Dzierzanowski, who is in charge of registering all sex-offenders in the city.
