The pre-holidays are known for being merry and bright, but they’re also known for being the deadliest season for impaired driving. Every pre-holiday season, lives are lost due to impaired drivers.

In 2022, there were 24,710 DUI-alcohol-related traffic crashes in Texas, resulting in 1,246 fatalities.

We just want to remind everyone to celebrate safely!

Get a sober ride. Call a taxi or use a rideshare app, use mass transit, or call a sober friend or family member to get you home safely. Or stay where you are until you are able to get behind the wheel safely.

Howdy, Collin County! Your pals at the Collin County Sheriff's Office are here to ensure your Thanksgiving and shopping adventures are as smooth as mashed potatoes!

🚫🍷🚗 Don't Drive Stuffed with Spirits: Before you hit the road, if you've had one too many, make sure you've designated a sober turkey to drive! Let's keep the roads alcohol-free and accident-free.

🎁 Package Pilfering Prevention: Don't let porch pirates feast on your Black Friday bounty! If you're out shopping or traveling, have a neighbor gobble up your packages or consider getting them delivered to a secure location.

🛒 Shop 'n' Stroll Safely: Black Friday shopping is a marathon, not a sprint! Pace yourself, and here's a pro tip: bring a shopping buddy for an extra set of eyes and laughs. Remember, there's no need for elbowing in the electronics aisle – share the deals, not the bumps! And hey, don't let your guard down in the parking lot; either lock your car doors and keep valuables out of sight.

🕵️ Don't Be a Sitting Duck Online: Cyber Monday deals are quacking at your door! Keep your online transactions safe – use secure websites, update your passwords, and beware of phishing scams. Don't get caught in the web of cyber fowl play!

👀 Keep an Eye on Your Pie: Thanksgiving leftovers are precious – but so are your belongings! Lock up when you leave, whether it's for a turkey trot or a shopping spree. Let's keep the Grinches at bay!

👉 Remember, safety is the real stuffing that makes any holiday feast complete! Wishing you a gobblin' good time, a deal-filled Black Friday, and a click-happy Cyber Monday! Stay safe, Collin County!

Press Release- 11/2/2023

Joint Operation by NTXCIU and DEA Leads to Significant Co***ne Seizure and Exchange of Gunfire

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Rowlett, Texas — Deputies from the North Texas Sheriff's Criminal Interdiction Unit (NTXCIU) and agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) conducted a joint operation on Wednesday afternoon, November 1, 2023.

Deputies from NTXCIU initiated a vehicle stop on Interstate 30, suspecting the driver, identified as 36-year-old Rudy Chavira, of carrying a substantial quantity of narcotics. When deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, Chavira, the sole occupant, fled, leading to a vehicle pursuit.

The pursuit continued westbound on I-30, and as they approached the Dalrock Rd area in Rowlett, Texas, they encountered heavy traffic conditions. The situation escalated when Chavira came to a stop. As deputies approached the vehicle, he opened fire on them, prompting a defensive response. In the exchange of gunfire, Chavira sustained injuries and was later pronounced deceased at a local hospital. There were no other reports of injuries.

Following the incident, a search of Chavira's vehicle revealed approximately 12 kilos of co***ne, emphasizing the significance of the situation and the importance of the joint operation between NTXCIU and DEA.

The Texas Rangers were called to the scene to investigate the incident. NTXCIU is fully cooperating with their ongoing investigation to ensure a thorough and impartial inquiry into the events that transpired.

Collin County Sheriff Jim Skinner expressed his appreciation for the professionalism and bravery of the deputy sheriffs, stating, "They stand on the frontlines, facing the tsunami of deadly drugs and ruthless criminals pouring into our neighborhoods from the open southern border. Our deputies are committed to making whatever sacrifices are needed to safeguard the communities they serve, all while navigating the constant and inherent dangers of their mission. I am grateful for their selflessness."

Sheriff Terry Garrett of Rockwall County added, "These deputies perform a very dangerous job on a daily basis to protect our citizens. We must continue to hold a strong line against the flow of illegal narcotics that continue to take the lives of Americans on a daily basis. The partnerships between our agencies and citizens must remain strong to stem the tide. We are thankful for these deputies and their willingness to protect against this evil."

This investigation remains active and ongoing, and no further details will be released at this time. The Texas Rangers will be the point of contact for media inquiries regarding this shooting incident.

About NTXCIU:

Their mission is to combat the flow of illicit narcotics and human trafficking into North Texas. Formal operations began in December 2017.

They are back at it again. This month, they are impersonating Lt. Brian Ward, Lt. Michael Richie, and Asst. Chief Chris Fontana.

We continue to receive calls about a phone scam in which the scammers impersonate Sheriff's Office personnel to get money from you. This week they are impersonating Lt. Frank Bundick, Lt. Brian Ward, and (retired) Asst. Chief Mark Sanderson. If in doubt, hang up! Don’t call the number back; instead, independently look up our main number (972-547-5100), call us, and ask to speak with records or the person who left the message. Stay informed. Don't become a victim!

🚩If they say “Sheriff’s Department” this should be a RED FLAG. We say “Sheriff’s Office”.

PLEASE DON’T BECOME A VICTIM OF THIS SCAM.

You may even see that on your caller ID this call's number show as originating from a courthouse, sheriff’s Office, or police department as these scammers use “spoofers” to alter the real number they are calling from.

Law enforcement agencies WILL NOT call the public regarding a process, summons, or anything that would require them to send money in the form of a prepaid card, wire transfer, or offer to negotiate a reduced payment in lieu of arrest.

Please share this information with your friends, family, neighbors, and don’t forget your grandparents.

AUSTIN – Three of Texas’ 10 Most Wanted offenders are back in custody following their recent arrests. Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive Joshua Lockett was arrested September 29. Texas 10 Most Wanted S*x Offenders Clayton Starr and Daniel Buruato were both arrested September 27. A Crime Stoppers reward will be paid to a tipster who assisted in Lockett’s capture.

Joshua Darnell Lockett, 24, affiliated with the Bloods gang, was taken into custody in Dallas, Texas, by members of the U.S. Marshals North Texas Fugitive Task Force and U.S. Marshals Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force, including Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Special Agents, along with the Collin County Sheriff’s Office, McKinney Police Department and Dallas Police Department last week.

In October 2019, Lockett was convicted of deadly conduct and subsequently sentenced to two years confinement in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) facility. He was discharged in 2021. In April 2023, Lockett was arrested by the Plano Police Department for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and bonded out.

Lockett had been wanted since July 5, 2023, when the McKinney Police Department issued warrants for his arrest for murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Additionally, warrants for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and two counts of manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance were issued out of Collin County for his arrest. For more information, view his captured bulletin.

Clayton Allen Starr, 52, was arrested in Albuquerque, New Mexico, after members of the U.S. Marshals North Texas Fugitive Task Force, including DPS Special Agents, coordinated with the U.S. Marshals Southwest Investigative Fugitive Team to locate and arrest Starr. In 1990, Starr was convicted of aggravated assault of a peace officer, burglary of a vehicle, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and forgery. The following year he was convicted of aggravated s*xual assault of a child after an incident involving a 13-year-old girl. He subsequently received a ten-year sentence in a TDCJ facility.

Starr had been wanted since March 2023, after multiple warrants were issued in Tarrant County for his arrest for assault causing injury to a child/elderly/disabled person, assault of a pregnant person and failure to register as a s*x offender. In April 2023, an additional warrant was issued in Tarrant County for Starr’s arrest for failure to register as a s*x offender. For more information, view his captured bulletin.

Daniel Adam Buruato, 34, was taken into custody in San Antonio, Texas, by members of the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, including DPS Special Agents. The TDCJ-Office of Inspector General (OIG), Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, Texas Attorney General’s Office and New Braunfels Police Department all assisted in the multi-agency investigation. In 2012, Buruato was convicted of indecency with a child by s*xual contact following an incident with a 6-year-old girl. He was subsequently sentenced to four years of confinement in a TDCJ facility.

Buruato had been wanted since February 2022, when a warrant was issued for his arrest in Bexar County for failure to register as a s*x offender. For more information, view Buruato’s captured bulletin.

Texas Crime Stoppers, which the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division funds, offers cash rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of Texas’ 10 Most Wanted Fugitives or S*x Offenders. So far in 2023, DPS and other agencies have arrested 34 Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and S*x Offenders. In addition, $88,000 in rewards has been paid for tips that yielded arrests.

Last week, we celebrated the graduation of our Detention Response Team (DRT) members following an intense week of training – also known as DRT Week.

But what exactly is the DRT? They represent our elite group of detention officers meticulously trained to tackle the most demanding situations within correctional facilities, from disturbances and riots to cell extractions, mass searches, and other high-stress scenarios involving uncooperative or violent inmates.

Throughout this demanding week, these courageous men and women went above and beyond, pushing their physical and mental limits to fine-tune their skills and ensure the safety and security of our facility.

Here's to their unwavering dedication and commitment to keeping our jails secure.

🎧 Embrace the "One-Ear" Policy for Safe Driving! 👂

Hey drivers, did you know? In the Lone Star State, wearing headphones while driving is technically legal. But caution required!

Before you crank up the tunes, here's what you need to know:

🚫 No specific law bans headphones, but... if they cause you to be distracted from your responsibilities of safety on the road, it is called distracted driving, and that's a no-go.

🔊 You gotta hear those sirens and honks for everyone's safety.

🚫 Distracted driving is risky business and reckless behavior can still lead to accidents and fines.

👂 So, if you must use headphones, embrace the one-ear policy and always keep one ear free for safety!

While you're within the bounds of the law, remember that safety is paramount. Stay alert, keep your focus on the road, and enjoy your music responsibly!
