DPSO Retiree Breakfast


 

 

On March 28, 2019 Sheriff Jayson Richardson hosted a Retiree's Breakfast for all retired law enforcement within the DeSoto Parish Sheriff's Office. This is a bi-annual event that is held
 at the DeSoto Parish Training Center and has been a huge success. Pancakes, Biscuits, gravy, eggs, sausage, and refreshments were graciously provided by Pirogues Catering Service.

 

 

 

 


Many of these retired men and women served together in law enforcement for years, but rarely get the opportunity to gather in one place to visit with one another. The breakfast event aims
 to help keep them connected to each other and to the Sheriff's Office. Many have paved the way for a better future in our parish, and their sacrifices are innumerable to count. We are grateful for their service and for events such as these that bring together
 experience and wisdom in law enforcement.

The Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office Wage Battle Against Drugs


 

 

 

 

 

 

An ongoing investigation into the distribution of methamphetamine in Nacogdoches County has led to the arrest of a large drug distributor with ties to a Mexican Cartel operating out of the Dallas area. The Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office has made 19 felony arrests in the past two months involving narcotics. Those arrests have enabled investigators to identify one of the main sources of those drugs that were being distributed in the Deep East Texas area.

 

The Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office reached out to the Texas Department of Public Safety Criminal Investigation Division and the Nacogdoches Police Department Street Crimes Unit for assistance in the case due to the magnitude of the volume of drugs that were being distributed.

 

On March 27, 2019 around 11:00 am, the Sheriff’s Office along with the other two agencies, conducted a traffic stop on a Cadillac SUV on FM 225 at Cr. 753. Through an investigation by all three agencies the Sheriff’s Office had information that the drug distributor was in the process of bringing large quantities of methamphetamine to Nacogdoches County.

 

Deputies found probable cause to stop the vehicle for a traffic violation and identified the driver as Matthew Fallis who was the main target in the investigation. A passenger in the vehicle was identified as Mary King. Deputies requested a search of the vehicle but were denied by Fallis. A Sheriff’s Office K-9 arrived on scene and conducted a free air search of the vehicle. The K-9 gave a positive alert to the vehicle that gave deputies probable cause to search the motor vehicle.

 

A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of 1. 5 pounds of crystal methamphetamine and 3 ounces of black tar heroin. Also found in the vehicle were two 9 MM pistols. One pistol was found in the driver’s door and the other pistol was found inside a bag where the narcotics were hidden. Both pistols were loaded. The Sheriff’s Office seized over seven thousand dollars in cash that was found inside the car as well.

 

Law enforcement have found that Fallis has direct connections to a Mexican Cartel Gang that was moving large amounts of Methamphetamine that originated in Mexico that was then moved to the Dallas area. The drugs were then distributed to the East Texas area on a weekly basis.

 

Sheriff Jason Bridges stated that black tar heroin is rarely seen in our community. This is the largest seizure of black tar heroin by the Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office has gained information that the Mexican Cartel was using Fallis to distribute their drugs and was attempting to get him to push black tar heroin in our community.

 

Matthew Fallis 41 years of age from Waxahachie, Texas and Mary King 37 years of age from Dallas, Texas were both arrested for two counts of Delivery of a controlled Substance a 1st degree felony. Fallis was also charged with Unlawful Possession of a firearm by a felon. Fallis is currently on parole.

 

Sheriff Bridges stated that the ATF has been contacted and will be assisting in this ongoing investigation.

 Boil Water Notice for Community Public Water Systems


 

 

 


Due to a water outage from a broken main the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the Choice public water system ID# 2100005 to notify customers from 5719 HWY 96 S to FM 2140 on 03/27/2019 to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc). Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions). 

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. 

 

In lieu of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes. 

 

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes. 

Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice. 

 

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail. 

 

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Vince DI Verdi at 936-591-1205.

Tenaha ISD Mourns Loss


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The TISD family is saddened to learn of the passing of Martha Boren this morning. Mrs. Boren’s death is the result of complications from heart surgery a few weeks ago.

 

Mrs. Boren’s career spanned almost three full decades at Tenaha ISD where she served most recently as the Director of Academic Affairs.

 

Her work has been vital in the survival of our small district through her efforts to acquire grants and maintain compliance of all federal and state funded programs.

 

Previous to her role in Central Administration, Mrs. Boren served as a Principal, and as a Business Teacher over her long career.

 

The Tiger Family has lost a “lynch pin” to the success of the students at TISD.

Please keep her husband Wesley and daughter Lesley in your thoughts and prayers in this difficult time.

 

Friday, March 29, 2019, Tenaha ISD will Dismiss Classes at 1:00 pm so that staff and students may attend Mrs. Martha Boren’s funeral.

Veterans of Somalia to be Remembered


 

 

Americans consider themselves to be a compassionate people, and the United States military has a long tradition of humanitarian relief operations both within and outside the continental United States. Never has this humanitarian impulse proven more dangerous to follow than in 1992 when the United States intervened to arrest famine in the midst of an ongoing civil war in the East African country of Somalia. Ultimately hundreds of thousands were saved from starvation, but unintended involvement in Somali’s civil strife cost the lives of thirty American Soldiers, four Marines, and eight Air Force personnel during the years of 1992 and 1994.

 

Shelby County VFW Post 8904 and the Auxiliary will honor those who served during this time with a wreath laying at the Veterans Memorial on the grounds of the 1885 Historic Courthouse in Center on Friday, March 29th, 2019 at 10 a.m.  As always the public is invited to honor their fellow Americans.  More information call Post Quartermaster Larry Hume at 598-2976.

Text 911 Available in Our Area


 

 

 

Deep East Texas Council of Governments (DETCOG) Regional 9-1-1 Network is pleased to announce the availability of “Text-to-9-1-1” service in Angelina, Houston, Jasper, Nacogdoches, Newton, Polk, Sabine, San Augustine, San Jacinto, Shelby, Trinity, and Tyler counties. If you are in an area where texting service is not available to 9-1-1, you will receive a ‘bounce-back’ message telling you to make a voice call. 

?

 “Text to 9-1-1” is a service that allows citizens to send a text message directly to 9-1-1 for assistance in the event they are unable to make a voice call. Simply send a text as you would normally. In the recipient field enter 911, compose the message and push send. Once your text is sent, the 9-1-1 system will send an automated message asking the individual texting for the address of the emergency. This starts the text session between 9-1-1 and the individual needing emergency help.  

 

It is important to remember that “Text to 9-1-1” services should only be used in an emergency situation when someone is unable to speak.  Examples include if the person is deaf, hard-of-hearing, speech impaired, or when speaking out loud would put the individual in danger.  “Text-to-9-1-1” also provides a silent alternative in cases such as a child abduction, active shooter or domestic abuse. You need to be able to tell them your exact location and the nature of your emergency when texting 9-1-1. Use simple language and no abbreviations or slang.

?

If you are able, please call 9-1-1.  It takes longer to get all the information when communicating through text messages.   Please DO NOT TEXT and DRIVE! Pull over to a safe location before sending a text to 9-1-1. 

?

If you would like more information about “Text-to-9-1-1”, please contact Van Bush at 409-384-5704 or email at vbush@detcog.org. You can also visit the DETCOG’s website at detcog.org.

Shelby County Appraisal District Reminds Businesses to Render Their Taxable Property by April 15th


 

 

If you own tangible personal property that is used to produce income, then a rendition must be filed with the Shelby County Appraisal District by April 15th.  Property owners who need more time to file their renditions may file a written request with the chief appraiser on or before April 15th to receive an automatic extension to May 15th or the next business day. The chief appraiser may also grant an additional 15 days after the postponed deadline, if necessary.

 

A rendition is a report that lists all the taxable property you owned or controlled on January 1 of this year.  Property includes inventory and equipment used by a business. Owners do not have to render exempt property, such as church property or an agriculture producer’s equipment used for farming.

 

The appraisal district may use the information submitted in the rendition to set property values.

If more than one appraisal district appraises a property, the property owner should render in each appraisal district office.

 

You can also file a report of decreased value to notify the district of significant depreciation of your property. For example, if your property was damaged by a storm, flood or fire last year, you should file a report of decreased value. The district will look at your property before assigning a value.  The last day to file a rendition or report of decreased value is April 15th.

If a rendition is filed late, is incomplete, not filed at all or is determined to contain false information, a penalty of 10 to 50 percent of the total amount of taxes levied on the property for that year will be imposed.

 

For more information about rendering property, deadline extensions, penalties and rendition forms, taxpayers may contact the Shelby County Appraisal District at (936) 598-6171.  More information is also available from the Comptroller’s website at www.comptroller.texas.gov/taxes/property-tax/.

Operation Allied Force - Kosovo Memorial


 

 

20 years ago, on March 24, 1999 NATO launched an air campaign called Operation Allied Force to halt the humanitarian devastation that was then unfolding in Kosovo.  The decision to intervene followed more than a year of fighting within the province and the failure of international efforts to resolve the conflict by diplomatic means.

 

NATO announced the suspension of the air campaign on June 10, 1999 once it had concluded a military technical agreement with the federal republic of Yugoslavia.

 

NATO casualties were light and the alliance suffered no fatalities as a result of combat operations.

VFW Post 8904 and the Auxiliary will conduct a wreath laying ceremony in honor of those who served in Kosovo at the Veteran’s Memorial on the grounds of the Historic Courthouse in Center on Friday, March 22nd at 10:00 a.m.  As always the public is invited to honor their fellow Americans.

Vidor Felon Charged with Illegally Possessing Firearms


 

 

BEAUMONT, Texas – A 39-year-old Vidor, Texas man has been indicted by a federal grand jury and charged with firearms violations in the Eastern District of Texas announced U.S. Attorney Joseph D. Brown today.

                

Brandon Aaron Holeman was named in a three-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury on Mar. 6, 2019, charging him with two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of possession of an unregistered firearm.

 

The indictment alleges that on two separate occasions, Dec. 12, 2018, and Feb. 2, 2019, Holeman was pulled over by law enforcement in Vidor and during both traffic stops, Holeman attempted to evade police and was arrested after brief pursuits.  Holeman was also in possession of firearms during both traffic stops, for a total of two revolvers, a pistol, and a sawed-off shotgun.  Further investigation revealed Holeman is a convicted felon and prohibited from owning or possessing firearms or ammunition. 

 

If convicted, Holeman faces up to 10 years in federal prison.

 

This case is being investigated by the Vidor Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Russell James.

 

It is important to note that a complaint, arrest, or indictment should not be considered as evidence of guilt and that all persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

TxDOT URGES YOUNG DRIVERS TO PLAN FOR SOBER RIDE AHEAD OF SPRING BREAK


 


 

 

AUSTIN – Spring Break is a dangerous time on Texas roads, with hundreds of impaired driving crashes involving young drivers occurring each year. As college students and young adults head to Spring Break destinations in the coming weeks, the Texas Department of Transportation’s “Plan While You Can” campaign reminds them to make a plan for a sober ride before the party starts.

 

“Drinking alcohol and driving can severely impact a young person’s future. Many promising lives are cut short due to the poor decision to drink alcohol and drive,” said TxDOT Executive Director James Bass. “We urge young drivers to make responsible choices during the Spring Break holiday. Before heading out, please plan ahead for a sober ride to ensure you get to and from your destination safely.”

 

During last year’s Spring Break* in Texas, there were 444 crashes involving young drivers who were driving under the influence of alcohol. Those crashes killed 11 people and seriously injured another 37.

 

The “Plan While You Can” campaign includes a statewide tour featuring the new “Plan to Win” virtual reality game where participants are a part of an immersive trivia game which poses questions related to drinking alcohol and driving, and also demonstrates the consequences of drunk driving. Players avoid “jail” by answering questions correctly, and winners progress to a waiting taxi to receive a safe and sober ride. The experience will visit 10 Texas cities during March.

 

While drivers under the influence of alcohol risk killing or seriously injuring themselves or others, they also face up to $17,000 in fines and fees, jail time and loss of their driver’s license. Visit SoberRides.org to find alternatives to drinking alcohol and driving, such as:

 

Designating a sober driver or calling someone for a sober ride home

 

Contacting a cab or ride-share service


Using mass transit

 

Spending the night
 

“Plan While You Can” is a key component of #EndTheStreakTX, a larger grassroots effort that encourages drivers to make safer choices while on the road. Since Nov. 7, 2000, at least one person has died on Texas roadways every single day and that’s why #EndTheStreakTX asks all Texans to commit to helping end the streak of daily deaths on our roadways.

Phone Scam


 

 

Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is warning area residents of a phone scam.

 

A scammer has been calling Shelby County residents and telling them they’re going to be arrested for missing jury duty.

 

The only way to keep from being arrested, according to the scammer, is to purchase gift cards and give the caller the gift card information over the phone.

 

The caller states he is Lieutenant Del Birdwell of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office will NEVER call to warn an individual of an arrest warrant.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office will NEVER request payment by means of a gift card.

 

The telephone number being used by the caller is 936.203.8900. If you receive a call, DO NOT give the caller any information. This is a scam.

Center Middle School Remains Closed Due to Power Outage


 

 

SWEPCO and others have worked through the night. Unfortunately, power is not yet restored, and problems remain.

 

Therefore, Center Middle School will be closed today, March 6. All other campuses will be open and on a regular schedule.

 

The Center Intermediate School is without phone and internet services as a result of the outage at CMS. I again apologize for the inconvenience. All efforts are being made to restore power as quickly and safely as possible.

Show your stuff at the Texas Blueberry Festival Vendor applications are available


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NACOGDOCHES, TX - For those wanting to exhibit products and services at the 30th Annual Texas Blueberry Festival presented by Tipton Ford-Lincoln, please complete and return the Vendor Application to the Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce while space is available. The festival is 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, June 8 in historic downtown Nacogdoches.

 

“The Texas Blueberry Festival has established an impressive reputation with vendors throughout our state and beyond. A large number of food, product and service vendors return year after year, and we want to include new vendors to the event,” festival Chairman Grace Handler said. “Our charming brick streets in historic downtown are the perfect base for just about anyone, but the space is limited. We want to make sure anyone that has serious intentions quickly returns the application to secure a spot in the festival.”

 

Recent blueberry festivals have attracted more than 20 thousand attendees.  

 

"Hours upon hours of work by volunteers and community partners, including our City staff, police force and fire and rescue department are invested in producing a safe, secure environment at the festival for everyone to enjoy," Handler said. "We expect to draw thousands again to this year's festival, especially with the 30-year anniversary to celebrate. Logistic organizers must begin work now to properly place vendors in the festival location."

 

Go to www.TexasBlueberryFestival.com, the official website for more information, and find the Vendor link on the Home page or call 936-560-5533.

 

The Texas Blueberry Festival is produced by the Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce.

TEXT-TO-9-1-1 SERVICES AVAILABLE IN SHELBY COUNTY


 

 

The Deep East Texas Council of Governments (DETCOG) Regional 9-1-1 Program is pleased to announce the availability of Text-to-9-1-1 service in Shelby County. Text to 9-1-1 is a service that allows citizens to send a text message directly to 9-1-1 for assistance in the event they are unable to make a voice call.

 

It is important to remember that text to 9-1-1 services should only be used in an emergency situation when someone is unable to speak or hear. If you need emergency help and are able to call 9-1-1, please do so.  It takes longer to get your location and other vital information when communicating through text messages.

 

When texting 9-1-1, you need to know your exact location and the nature of your emergency. Use street signs, mile markers, cross roads and land marks to help identify your location. Use simple language and no abbreviations or slang. Please do NOT TEXT and DRIVE! Pull over to a safe location before sending a text to 9-1-1. 

 

To use Text to 9-1-1, simply send a text as you would normally. In the recipient field enter 911, compose the message and push send. Once your text is sent, the 9-1-1 system will send an automated message asking the individual texting for the address of the emergency. This starts the text session between the 9-1-1 dispatcher and the individual needing emergency help.   

Text to 9-1-1 is intended for emergency situations where a person is deaf, hard-of-hearing, speech impaired, can’t make a voice call, or when speaking out loud would put the individual in danger.  Text-to-9-1-1 provides a silent alternative in cases such as a child abduction, active shooter or domestic abuse.

 

In 2018, the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office received 13,344 emergency 9-1-1 calls. Nearly 200,000 calls were made to 9-1-1 in the 12-county DETCOG region last year, and approximately 83 percent of those 9-1-1 calls were from cellular phones.

 

If you are in an area where texting service is not available to 9-1-1, you will receive a ‘bounce-back’ message telling you to make a voice call.  If you would like more information about Text-to-9-1-1, please contact Van Bush, DETCOG Director of Regional 9-1-1 Network, at 409-381-5263 or email at vbush@detcog.org. You can also visit DETCOG’s website at www.detcog.org.
