Not alot of crimes or arrests to report

Lytle P.D. activity from the week ending Sept. 3, 2023: Officers handled 55 calls for service and conducted 104 traffic stops. Of those 104 stops, 54 resulted in a citation and 50 were warnings.

Sorry, not a lot of crimes or arrests to report. I know it creates a dull report, but I only have so much to work with.
We had two (2) arrests last week: #1 – Ofc. R. Garcia conducted a traffic stop on Main St. for an expired vehicle registration. The 24-year-old male driver had an active felony warrant out of Medina Co. for possession of a controlled substance. He was booked into the Medina Co. Jail. #2 – Ofc. J. Cortez conducted a traffic stop for a defective light that resulted in the arrest of a 44-year-old female for an active felony warrant out of Bexar Co. for possession of a controlled substance. She was booked into the Atascosa Co. Jail.
We had two (2) property crimes reported last week: #1 – A wallet was reported stolen from the Dollar Tree store office (Main St.). The video showed the wallet was dumped in the parking lot after our crook helped himself to the credit cards. #2 – A trailer-mounted BBQ Pit was taken from a residence near the intersection of Cottage St. and FM 2790 N. It was taken on 9/1 between 8:10 AM and 5 PM. It was valued at $2,500. So, if your “sus” neighbor had a big Labor Day weekend party and a nice BBQ Pit on a trailer showed up out of nowhere …. Give us a call. I used the word “sus” to show that I am hip and up-to-date on stuff and not just some old man mourning the loss of Jimmy Buffet.

Numerous city streets are scheduled to be repaved starting on Sept. 28. We will push out more info on the various streets set to get paved, Railroad St. is a big one. They should be done in 5 days if the weather cooperates. Just because some of the roads will be nice and new, the speed limits won’t increase! The last time Railroad St. was paved I would just sit on the side of the road, turn on the radar and start humming the theme song to the Cannon Ball Run movie….and wait for speeders. Usually, the wait was very short.
