As Texans come together in response to #COVID19, we must look out for the most vulnerable among us.
Please join us in praying for vulnerable children and families this #BlueSunday in observance of Child Abuse Prevention Month.

San Marcos Police Department
Our family in blue is mourning the loss of our fallen brother, Officer Justin R. Putnam, who was killed in the line of duty last evening. Officer Putnam was with SMPD for more than five years. Words can never adequately express our profound sorrow for Officer Putnam's family and loved ones. To say he will be missed is an understatement. Two other officers were wounded during the same incident, Officer Franco C. Stewart and Officer Justin P. Mueller. Both are in critical but stable condition following surgeries. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families. We respectfully ask that all three families are given time to grieve and deal with their situations in private but we thank the community for the overwhelming outpouring of love and support. We greatly appreciate it.
Kendall County District Attorney Recognizes Child Abuse Prevention Month
New Braunfels Police Department
UPDATE: AMBER ALERT
Update (6:00pm): The AMBER Alert issued earlier today by the Texas Department of Public Safety has been cancelled after 8-year old Kiley Diaz and her mother, 29-year old Alyssa Lopez, were located this afternoon in Garden Ridge by members of the US Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and the FBI Safe Streets Task Force. After speaking with authorities by telephone, the mother surrendered herself and her unharmed daughter peacefully and without further incident.
Lopez was taken into custody on an unrelated warrant of arrest and will be booked at the Comal County Jail. Charges against her in this case are pending. The child is currently in the custody of the Texas Department of Family Services.
The New Braunfels Police Department greatly appreciates the efforts of the federal law enforcement agencies that assisted in this case, as well as the countless pieces of information provided by members of the public.
ORIGINAL POST: On April 3rd, 2020, at approximately 9pm, the New Braunfels Police Department was called to an address in the 500 block of Starling Creek to assist Child Protective Services with the removal of a child from that home. The mother of the child had become upset, locked the CPS caseworkers out of the house, and fled the location out of a backdoor with the 8-year old child. Officers arrived on location and quickly learned from eyewitnesses that the mother and child had been seen walking through a nearby ditch in the Conrads Lane/Goodwin Lane area before getting into a black 4-door pickup truck. Due to the circumstances surrounding this incident and the belief that the child is in immediate danger, an AMBER Alert has been authorized through the Texas Department of Public Safety.
The child has been identified as 8-year old Kiley Diaz. She stands approximately 3½-feet to 4-feet tall, weighs between 50 and 60 pounds, and has wavy dark brown hair that goes past her shoulders. She was last seen wearing pink Mickey Mouse pajamas.
The mother has been identified as 29-year old Alyssa Lopez. She stands approximately 5-feet 5-inches tall, weighs approximately 125 pounds, has dark brown hair, brown eyes, and a sleeve tattoo featuring a sunflower. She was last seen wearing black workout shorts and a black t-shirt with white writing.
It is unknown who was driving the black pickup truck, but the vehicle was last seen heading southbound on I-35 and was last known to be in the Selma area. The destination for the mother and daughter is unknown, but authorities have reason to believe they could be heading to Pearsall or possibly out of state, either to California or Washington State.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of 8-year old Kiley Diaz or 29-year old Alyssa Lopez is asked to call 911 or call the New Braunfels Police Department at 830-221-4100.
PLEASE NOTE: This post has been edited to remove reference to a specific type of pickup truck with a specific license plate. It has been determined that the truck and its driver were not involved in this case. NBPD appreciates your help as we deal with evolving information based on eyewitness accounts and the ongoing investigation as we work together to locate the missing girl and her mother.
DA'S RESPONSE TO COVID-19 and NOTICE OF TEMPORARY OFFICE CLOSURE
MESSAGE FROM NICOLE S. BISHOP
As the COVID-19 virus continues to significantly alter our personal and profession lives, I want to reach out to the community. Along with acknowledging the deeply personal impact COVID-19 is likely having on all of us, I would like to share with our community that my office remains available, working, and serving, and we are ready to face any challenges that may arise.
In an effort to keep my staff safe in these extraordinary times, our physical office will be closed today 3/20/2020 from 1-5 in order to deep clean and sanitize our office. However, we are still available by email and phone as our lines have been forwarded to work cell phones and we are all working remotely during business hours. The physical office will be back open Monday morning at 8 am, but I ask that you to try to conduct all business with my office by phone or email for everyone's safety until we get through this pandemic.
These are unique and scary times, and we have been working very hard to make sure that we continue to serve our community and our victims. Even if we are not physically in the office, we are still working and available. We started the process of going paperless in 2017, and now all work can be done digitally through computers and mobile devices. We have also been preparing this week for the worst case scenario in the event we are unable to go into the office for any reason. We have a plan in place for supervising and conducting business remotely. Rest assured that even if my staff is not in the office, they are not sitting idly by on your dime. They are dedicated public servants, and are accounting for all remote work and time. As we provide an essential law enforcement function, we cannot and will not shut down.
The Supreme Court of Texas has issued a suspension of all non-essential court proceedings across the state of Texas until May, however this does not include magistration of new arrestees, juvenile matters, or protective orders.
Our victim services department remains available 24-7 to assist and support victims, and to provide sexual assault and family violence protective orders. We ask all victims to call either of the following phone numbers at any time for assistance. 210-289-3042 or 210-254-7642 (this second number also provides assistance in Spanish).
I know many have also worried about the jail population, new arrests, and the risk to inmates and jail staff. We have come up with a temporary system to get people immediately out of jail who have been arrested and do not pose a flight risk or danger to the community. Myself and my First Assistant, Katherine McDaniel will be on call 24-7 to review new arrests at the time of arrest. We have worked with our District Judge Kirsten Cohoon to also make video magistration available. Judge Cohoon along with JPs Teri Nunley and Judge Frieda Pressler have agreed to be on call in order to provide 24-7 magistration so that these low risk offenders will not be a burden on our jail system.
Yesterday I held a conference call with Sheriff Auxier and Chief Kohler to discuss adjusting how we will handle certain arrests to ensure that our officers are safe, and to try to ease the burden of the jail population. Everyone remains committed to keeping Kendall County safe, and this does not mean those who commit crime here will not be held accountable. We take crime seriously in this community. If you think we were tough on crime before, you will face even more severe penalties if you take advantage of our citizens during these trying times.
This is a proud, no nonsense, hard working, and caring community. We will all get through this if we work together. My office, as well as every other entity in our criminal justice system will remain vigilant to ensure justice and to keep you safe. Myself and my staff are beyond blessed and honored to serve.
- Nicole S. Bishop, Criminal District Attorney
Gov. Abbott has declared a state of disaster for all of Texas. During such disasters like this, the law allows for enhanced penalties for crimes such as theft, assault, robbery, burglary, and criminal trespass. We will pursue enhanced punishments for these crimes in all of Kendall County. Anyone who tries to take advantage of our citizens in these difficult times will feel the full force and weight of the law.

Today, October 4th, 2019, the State of Texas represented by Special Victims Prosecutor Nick Socias presented the punishment case on Aidan Vitela for the death of Sydney Smith and injury to Victoria Snell. The Court heard evidence of alleged offenses committed in other jurisdictions including alcohol offenses, multiple uses of cocaine, repeated speeding violations, 3 drivers safety courses, sexual assault of a child, and other offenses before the fatal crash. After the crash the State presented evidence of drinking and driving just 9 months later, another at-fault accident where he put another driver in the hospital with permanent injury, and other offenses.
The Judge sentenced Vitela to 2 years in prison with a $5,000 fine and 6 months in county jail with a $1,000 fine. The maximum sentence for criminally negligent homicide is 2 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. For assault it is 6 months in county jail and a $2,000 fine.
The family of the victims of Vitela were given the opportunity to make victim impact statements to Vitela on how his crimes have affected them.
Never forget what happened to us 18 years ago today.
We are all hoping for a speedy recovery for Officer Van Stavern. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
