20 YEARS FOR M**H DEALER

KENDALL COUNTY, TX – Guillermo Morales, III was found guilty by a Kendall County jury of Possession with Intent to Deliver Methamphetamine on March 31, 2021 and sentenced to 20 years in prison.

During the trial, the jury heard that on the evening of July 26, 2019, Boerne Police Officer stopped a vehicle for speeding. Morales, the driver, appeared nervous and provided inconsistent details to the officer. In the passenger seat were a woman, Ciara Barrera, and a 3-year-old child. Officers searched the vehicle and found over 100 small plastic bags used in narcotic sales, a scale, and over 5 grams of methamphetamine in Barrera’s purse.

At trial, Assistant Criminal District Attorney Manuel Cardenas presented evidence from both Morales’s and Barrera’s cell phone that demonstrated a pattern of narcotic sales and delivery. The trial lasted 3 days with punishment to the jury. In the punishment phase, Prosecutor Cardenas went into detail about Morales’s federal conviction the year prior for importing methamphetamine, where he was given a chance at probation but ultimately failed. He also detailed how the drug sales occurred while the Defendant was on supervised release or parole.

The jury returned a sentence of 20 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice – Institutional Division. “In reaching this sentence, the people of Kendall County saw Morales as a career offender" Cardenas states. "Methamphetamine is a highly addictive drug that destroys families and communities. Trafficking in this substance requires a lengthy sentence.”

There seems to be an increase in DWI arrests lately. Please remember that Kendall County law enforcement can and does get a warrant for your blood if you refuse to give a specimen once arrested for DWI. We also prosecute DWIs in this county.

Please remember this before getting behind the wheel. The law is intoxicated not drunk. Keep yourself and others safe on our roads, and call a friend or ride share if you feel altered in any way. Lyft and Uber services are now available for much of Kendall County.

Congratulations to Assistant CDA Nick Socias!

Congratulations Nick Socias Kendall County Courthouse for being a recipient of the First Annual Hill Country 40 Under 40 Award!

Nick Socias is the Special Victims Prosecutor for Kendall County. He is solely responsible for the criminal prosecution of all sensitive cases involving domestic violence and crimes against our society’s most vulnerable: children, elderly, and the disabled. He helps to enact positive changes in the legislature and law enforcement community as he works to meet the needs of our growing county. This includes working with our State legislators on passing new laws or changing current ones to better protect victims and society. He is an affiliate of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which assists state and local law enforcement in developing an effective response to the rapidly growing threat of technology-facilitated child sexual exploitation and internet crimes against children.

He began his legal career as a prosecutor in the largest District Attorney’s Office in Texas: the Harris County District Attorney’s Office in Houston, Texas. There, Nick Socias was responsible for prosecuting cases including capital murders, murders, gang retaliations and tortures, child and adult sexual assaults, domestic assaults, and human trafficking. He was invited to join a specialized division known as the Child Abuse Division where he received extensive training and experience prosecuting with physical abuse, sexual abuse, and exploitation of children. When not prosecuting cases, he was training and supervising other prosecutors in the office and members of law enforcement. He was invited to join the Bexar County Criminal District Attorney‘s Office,where his focus was on violent crimes, including armed drug trafficking, aggravated felonies, murders, and capital murders. During his time there, he represented the State of Texas, victims, and their families in jury trials against some of the worst and most violent offenders. He would ultimately end up taking his experience to the Hill Country, representing the victims of Kendall County.

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

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.
