August 2018


In the month of August, I was able to make three new beat contacts in Beat 09.  I met with Mr. Jim Ashley, who lives on Hawthorn Drive.   Mr. Ashley had no problems or complaints within the beat, except when his truck was broken into many years ago.  I also met with Mrs. Jeanette Matthews, who also lives on Hawthorn Drive.  Mrs. Matthews also had no problems or complaints within the beat, but we talked about her cats.  I also met with Mrs. Vickie Vacek, who also lives on Hawthorn Drive.  Mrs. Vacek also had no problems or complaints about the beat, but the big news of the neighborhood was one of the nearby houses that had been vacated unexpectedly.  The residence was recently purchased and is currently being renovated.     I located a white 1994 Ford F150 pickup, bearing Texas paper license plate number #416401F, parked in the parking lot at Lamar Park Apartments, 1720 FM 1640, near the 700 building, which was in violation of the junk vehicle ordinance.  The temporary plate was expired since May, 2018, and was registered to a subject from Houston.  The vehicle had a flat tire and was clearly in need of repair.  I was unable to locate an owner, so I issued a junk vehicle warning for the vehicle and placed it on the vehicle windshield.  The junk vehicle from July was removed.  I made a school visit to Deaf Smith Elementary during the first week of back-to-school.  I spoke to numerous teachers and employees.  No problems were reported.  I did not meet with the single registered sex offender in Beat 09 to obtain the information form, but he did contact the Police Department via telephone to inform me that he would be out of town on vacation for most of August and that all of his information was current and accurate.
