64 Service Calls

Your friends at Lytle PD responded to 64 calls for service last week. Officers conducted 36 traffic stops, 33 were citations and 3 were warnings.
Property crimes – Here is what was reported last week: A couple of mini-storage units had their locks cut; items were missing from one of the units. A guy drove into the gate at South Texas Hardware on Main St., he then fled the scene. There was another incident at the park, a partition in the men’s restroom was damaged and a small fire was started in the water fountain dish. H.E.B. Plus also reported an attempted theft; the guy was going to try to take a basket full of stuff but left it by the door and took off. Maybe, he was stealing some stuff for an Easter event and then realized he was a week early.
These are the arrests from last week: #1- A traffic stop on Main St. resulted in a warrant arrest on a male for Driving While License Invalid; the warrant was out of McMullen County. He was booked into the Atascosa Co. Jail. #2 – Officers responded to a report of an assault on CR 6843, a male was arrested for assault causing bodily injury after he assaulted a co-worker. The male was booked into the Medina Co. Jail. #3 – A male was arrested for striking the gate at South Texas Hardware and then fleeing the scene, officers were able to locate him quickly. He was booked into the Atascosa Co. Jail. #4 & #5 – Officers responded to John Lott Park for a report of “people smoking marijuana in a vehicle”. The incident resulted in a 17-year-old male being arrested on a felony dope charge and a 32-year-old female being arrested for tampering with evidence (felony) and resisting arrest (misdemeanor). Both were booked into the Atascosa Co. Jail. #6 – Officers arrested a male for public intoxication; he was booked into the Atascosa Co. Jail. That’s it for the crime stuff this past week. Property crimes were not too bad, and the arrests were enough to keep us busy.
What else is going on?
The state has started work on the IH-35 access road project, and the intersection of FM 3175 and IH-35 has been shut down. I believe they will move up the FM 2790 and IH-35 next. So that area along IH-35 will be interesting for the next year or so. Who knows, the way we are growing we may have to get accustomed to ongoing TXDOT projects. Doesn’t that just put a smile on your face?
Easter is approaching and this year the egg hunt at the park is back on! After 2 years of no hunting, we are back in action. The event will be Saturday, April 16 from 1P-3P at John Lott Park. Kids ages 1-8 can participate. The registration fee is one canned good or $1 per child. I bet it will be fun and I am hoping that the candy is not from 2019.
