Officer Vernon Horelica
In April, I was able to make three new beat contacts in Beat 9. I met with Kay Dawes, who lives on Laurel Oaks Drive. Mrs. Dawes had no complaints or problems within the Beat. I also met with Jim Zack who lives on Cedar Drive. Mr. Zack had concerns about all the foot traffic on his street coming from Mustang Crossing Apartments, due to some recent burglaries in the area. I advised Mr. Zack that if he sees anything that is suspicious to call the Police Department and give a description of the person(s) and we would check it out. I also advised Mr. Zack that I would keep an eye on the area and also pass it on to the other shifts as well. I also met with Susie Palacios, who lives on Chestnut. Mrs. Palacios had no complaints or problems within the Beat.
This month I visited Seguin Early Childhood Center and introduced myself to several members of the staff there. Also in my Beat this month I located a black 1999 Chevrolet Camaro that is in violation of the junk vehicle ordinance at 1711 Cypress. The vehicle was registered to Matt Winikates at that address. I issued a warning for the City Ordinance violation and placed in on the front door of the residence. I made attempts to meet with the owner, but there was no answer at the door on any of the occasions. I will check back in the month of May to see if the vehicle is removed or brought up to code. The junk vehicle at 1709 Lamar from March has not yet been brought up to code. I will make contact with the owners in May and if it is not brought to code, they will be cited.
I conducted extensive patrols in my Beat due to a recent daytime burglary on Cedar, and some others in the neighboring areas, including Rosenberg. I made frequent foot patrols of the abandoned structures at 1809 Cypress and 1903 Cypress to make sure there were no illegal activities occurring there and that no vagrants had entered the structures for shelter. I made several attempts to make contact with the single registered sex offender in Beat 9, however, I was unsuccessful.
