Chief Priest’s Weekly Report



Greetings from Lytle PD, Our call volume last week just barely made it above the 50 mark; we ended up with 53. It’s been mostly hot with a scattering of police activity.

We had one arrest last week. On Saturday night Sgt. Hanson was dispatched to the IH-35 Access Rd. at FM 3175 for a two-vehicle collision. His investigation resulted in the arrest of the at-fault driver for DWI.

In the property crime section: The biggest crime of the week was a stolen vehicle. Yes, it was a Ford F250 (2004) model. Taken from Quicksilver Auto on Main St. Here is the deal … the motor was “blown.” So our thief had to either tow the truck or trailer it out. I guess all that time the crook spent getting their online “hot wiring” course completion certificate wasn’t of much use on this one. Ofc. Peña took a forgery report, a stolen check was cashed at Community National Bank. It is nice to get a good old fashioned crime. This was the kind of stuff we handled all the time before everything went “online.”

Here is some actually good information you can use and pass on. Yes, I agree that often my weekly report is full of useless information. The City of Lytle in conjunction with the San Antonio Food Bank will be holding a free food distribution on July 27. The time will be from 3-5 p.m. at the Lytle Community Center (19031 Priest Blvd.). It is for any area resident, not just those that reside inside the city limits. YOU MUST preregister online. The link can be found on the city’s website

We knew it was going to happen, it was only a matter of time. Water restrictions are here if you are a City of Lytle water customer. You can only water once a week and it depends on the last number of your address. I will confuse it if I try to explain it here. Go to the city’s website for the details. I am going to seek some clarification from code compliance because I sometimes run a water hose from a neighbor’s house. Not always, only if they are like away on vacation or maybe real sound sleepers. So I am not sure if the address is where the water is coming from or the address it is going to. I’m sure I will get it all figured out.

RICHEY PRIEST is the Lytle Chief of Police. You may reach him at richard.
