Chief Priest’s Report – Lytle



Greetings from Lytle PD, Your Lytle PD officers handled 54 calls for service. It wasn’t too busy. Fortunately, the Strawberry Festival in Poteet doesn’t have much impact on us. I hear they had a huge crowd. I don’t mind a little “festival” now and then, but that event is too high-speed for me.

Onto the dreaded property crimes. We work hard for what we have and don’t like people taking our stuff. Well this week our stuff included a couple cell phones from Cricket Wireless. Our only other report was about a guy who took some tamales and chicken wings from H-E-B, valued at $10. So there were no big crimes this week. I guess the crooks didn’t want to chance getting arrested and miss the Strawberry Festival.

Two incidents resulted in a trip to jail; a third incident resulted in citations. In the first incident Capt. Reyes and Ofc. A. Lopez got dispatched to the H-E-B for a report of a person “under the influence.” The contact resulted in two females being arrested for possession of meth. The second incident was the result of a traffic contact by Capt. Reyes. The driver was highly intoxicated and refused to exit the vehicle. A Bexar Co. Sheriff’s Deputy responded to Reyes’ call for assistance. The driver was removed with the help of the deputy and was arrested for DWI and resisting arrest. The third incident was another report of a driver “under the influence,” contact was made by Lt. Dear and Cpl. Robison. An adult female and a 16-year-old juvenile were cited for possession of drug paraphernalia and released.

That’s a wrap for the week in review. It’s a great time to be in Lytle … things are really moving forward. I’m resting up because I think it’s about to get busy.
