On Friday, December 31, 2021 at approximately 6:10 PM, Deputies with Precinct 8 Constable Phil Sandlin’s Office were dispatched to the 1000 block of Independence Pkwy N after receiving reports of a vehicle that drove into the water at the Lynchburg Ferry landing.

Upon arrival, Deputies learned a citizen, identified as Robert Moore, was in the parking lot of the Monument Inn restaurant with his wife when they saw a vehicle drive through the ferry dock and into the water. Mr. Moore immediately ran to the edge of the landing and jumped into the water without regard for his own safety. Mr. Moore attempted to gain access to the vehicle and began to give instructions to the driver to unlock the doors. Ultimately, the driver was able to exit the vehicle as it began to sink. Mr. Moore grabbed ahold of the driver and pulled him towards the bumper where citizens were able to help them out of the water. Mr. Moore remained with the driver until first responders arrived.

The 63 year old male was transported to nearby HCA Houston Healthcare Clear Lake Hospital with minor injuries. This incident likely would have resulted in a loss of life and would have left a family in mourning. Mr. Moore’s swift response undoubtedly saved the man’s life.

Houston Police Department's Dive team responded to the scene to recover the vehicle.

Constable Sandlin hosted a retirement ceremony this afternoon for Precinct 8 Deputy Robert Hunt. Deputy Hunt began his career with Harris County in 1991 when he joined the Sheriff’s Office as a civilian jailer. He graduated the Sheriff’s academy in 1993 as a member of Class B293 and served as a Deputy with the HCSO until joining Precinct 8 in 1995. In the 26 years since, Deputy Hunt has served in our District Patrol Division, Toll Road Patrol Division, Civil Division and most recently, our Criminal Warrant Division.

Today, he was joined by family, friends and co-workers as Constable Sandlin presented him with a retirement plaque and shadow box in recognition of his contribution to our mission over the years. He then signed off on the radio for the last time.

We thank Deputy Hunt for his nearly 31 years of service to the citizens of Harris County! Enjoy your retirement, Robert!

Super aggressive cop just rolls up and starts frisking man who is not breaking the law
Harris County Precinct 8 Just want to send out a big hello an to say be safe an have good shifts!!
Abuse I have been having issues with hubby, I had to call the police 3 times and every time 2 officers would come n Every time I was told "normally we make the aggressor leave, but because he is drunk, we don't want him driving, so I will have to leave. He Throwing things n breaking things threatening me and They are taking his side. About 2 weeks ago, he literally tried choking twice and literally threw me out. I had $40 n no one would give me a room, they wanted $55+, so I went to the Jersey Village Police, parking lot, for safety, to sleep in my car, I accidentally found their lot where they park their cars, so I thought this was a safe place to sleep, until they found me, they said I was "trespassing" and I had to leave. Couple of nights later, I am at Kroger on Westheimer n my wallet keys and phone gets stolen, out of the shopping cart, ( I am such an idiot, I deserved it), so I call the police, they come out, make a report, so I got up the guts to make a report about Hubby throwing me out, (he put his hands on me). About a week later, I get a phone call from HPD, saying that because the "assault" happened outside of their jurisdiction, they will not do anything, I have to report it here. 5 Times, The Police Refused to Help Me. 5 Times. This is How the Constable/Sheriff Protect and Serve Us! Last night, he balled up his fist at me, because I refused to cuddle with, because of the way he was treating me (I have it on recording), I stood my ground, and said “go a head, leave a mark on me”, needless to say, he did not touch me, called the B word and left me alone. I was praying the hold time, but I did not show it. Why call the Police? They refuse to do anything.
Constable Sandlin, For the record, Lizzy Pietrzak just threatened to bring Mathew Pietrzak to my home and attack me after I made comments about your deputies arresting her brother. If I am attacked I wanted the authorities to be duly notified. Thank you.
Want to thank your officers for the extra patrols through University Trace. We've apparently had a lot of cars and homes broken into, do the drive throughs with the additional spotlighting is very reassuring to see. Please pass my thanks on to your staff.

My son was walking home from CLHS when a silver and/or white truck passed him by. The truck has a wave like design around the bottom. As they drove passed, they rolled their window down to throw a bottle at him. He is not sure if they spoke, he didnt see a face. However, he is a mixed race child, so I obviously have to consider that as a reason. Please, look for this truck.
I just wanted to thank you guys for your attempts in safeguarding the Middlebrook subdivision as of late especially during the morning when we are taking our children to school. I have seen numerous reports of all types of unlawful Behavior as of late circling about, and I just wanted to drop you guys a line to show my appreciation for your efforts to look after our community and especially our children. Kudos to you all and keep up the good work. Stay safe out there.
Greetings all, To my understanding in the meeting today dated, 1/29/19, Sean Teare was not able to issue a warrant for the blood test where a repeat offender of ma*****na possession who admitted to ingesting ma*****na 7 hours prior to the fatal accident that killed my daughter Chelcie Victoria Cloud based upon the DRE Sgt. Ryan Gosset of Precinct 8 opinions that; the killer who hit and killed my daughter while her hazard lights were activated did not look intoxicated. The fresh burning scent of ma*****na exuding from the vehicle and on his person was not enough or probable cause because of an opinion of a DRE who failed to take (his) Zachery Commander’s blood pressure, pulse and temperature. The accused also refused to submit to a blood test and a field sobriety test. My question is, what were Gosset’s opinions based upon if he failed to perform his complete duties and Commander refused all of the test. Are you telling me that the Chief of vehicular homicide does not have the authority or sole powers to make an executive decision to issue a warrant for a blood test, knowing that the offender admitted to smoking ma*****na. I understood the attorney who stated that he presented the case to the Grand Jury and he stated that the offenses committed by Commander were juvenile offenses. Commander is 36 years old and 10 years ago he was 26 years old and that does not constitute a juvenile in the state of Texas. I never received and answer in regards to the usable amount of ma*****na found in the vehicle and the possession of a fire arm in a company vehicle within a license to carry. The attorney who presented the case failed to mention all of these facts to the jury because he was not aware of the facts. Commander was not a juvenile on each time an officer in Harris County and Waller County found him in possession of ma*****na. It is also a fact that he had 2 DWI’s in Harris County and the 3rd where he would have tested positive would have made him a felon. I will await your answers to these questions before moving forward. Thank you in advance for your time and expeditious response in regards to this hardship and unpunished death of our daughter, Chelcie Victoria Cloud. Signed, Allison Cloud James Wilson
Thank you y’all the brave men and women wearing BLUE 💙💙💙
