Police Blotter Update

By Mark D. Roberts | Saturday, August 30, 2008

I haven’t been updating my local police blotter for a while. So, here are some recent highlights . . . .

May 19

10800 block of Highway 87, Comfort, 7:24 p.m., A caller reported that someone ran through his fence. [MDR: With a car? Or with superhuman strength?]

May 20

100 block of Sunflower, Comfort, 9:49 p.m., A caller reported several people were standing outside her house and drinking. [MDR: If you throw a party and people won’t go home, you can always call the Boerne police. They’ll handle it.]

June 21

539 mile marker of Interstate 10, 12:36 a.m., A caller reported seeing a woman riding topless on the sunroof of a Jeep. The caller reported that she almost fell off when the vehicle turned towards Ranger Creek. Police searched the area but were unable to find the truck. [MDR: No mention of whether the police were able to find the woman or not.]

June 17

200 block of Bandera, 3:35 p.m., Police and EMS were called when an employee at a dry cleaners got his head stuck in a pressing machine. The man had gotten out by the time police arrived. [MDR: Note to self – Don’t ever put head in a pressing machine.]

June 12

100 block Flintrock Drive, 8:45 p.m., A caller reported that his 21-year-old son took his wife’s debit card and used it to take money from their account without permission. [MDR: Now that’s what I call effective parenting . . . call the police!]

June 21

8500 block of Raintree Woods Drive, 9:08 p.m., A caller reported that someone had thrown shoes in the roadway. Police found four pairs of shoes and located four teens hiding in nearby bushes. The teens were told not to throw shoes in the road and sent home. [MDR: Not much to do here in Boerne but throw shoes in the road.]

June 23

29000 block of Ralph Fair Road, 4:45 p.m., Police stopped after seeing two women on the side of the road arguing. One woman reported that the other had come to pick her up after her car broke down. However, the women began arguing and the one with the broken car decided she did not want a ride. She later agreed to ride with her friend. [MDR: Where is Condoleeza Rice when you need her?]

June 25

300 block of Rosewood, 8:31 a.m., Someone entered the church during the night, rummaged through the offices and played basketball in the gym. [MDR: Okay, that’s it. Playing basketball without permission!]

300 block of Fifth Street, Comfort, 4:52 p.m., A caller reported that someone came by their house the previous night selling tamales for a church. The caller purchased the tamales and found out the next day that the church was not selling tamales. [MDR: Now there’s a way to get people to buy your tamales. Claim you’re from a church.]

    Mark, I always stop by to see what you write. It’s almost always deep and thoughtful. And I appreciate that. I must admit, I love these and look forward to them greatly.

    Enjoyed your series on the exegesis exam revision. Maybe they’re trying to ease the process because we’re so desperately short of preachers?
    Anyway, I didn’t have any trouble with my 2nd run at the old exam — thanks to your class and your practical approach to the matter. Thanks, again.
    Enjoy the Police Blotter part of the blog. Kinda reminds me of the small town I grew up in (Bishop, CA).
    Blessings and peace, my friend.

    Mark: I noticed that most of your Police Blotter entries are tagged with the “Small Town” topic, but this one doesn’t seem to be. You probably would want to tag them all the same so people can find them all if they want or need to.


Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
