Richardson Police "Can Do" Food Drive 2020

Our annual “Can Do” Food Drive was held Saturday, September 19, 2020. The food drive benefits the Network of Community Ministries (NETWORK) food bank that serves those in need. This year citizens donated 8,442 pounds of food, beating last year’s total of over 7,000 pounds. A special thanks to CISCO employees, who after seeing our event posted on social media, sent a team of volunteers to lend a hand loading donations. They told us it was a great way to give back and they didn’t mind getting outside after staying in more often due to COVID-19. Thank you to our Volunteers In Police Service for the extra hands and everyone who came out to support the event with their donations! #GivingBackMatters #Community #NationalNightOut #RPDNNO2020 National Night Out

We recently worked a couple of cases that involved victims who were scammed by a woman using their own phones. It’s not an unusual situation where a person may approach you asking to borrow your phone to make a call or text. At this point, if a crime happened, we would tell you how the stranger took off with the phone. But in our two recent cases, the stranger looks for a cash transfer app, and if the specific app is installed on your phone, they use it to make a quick cash transfer to their account. The stranger hands your phone back and you're unaware anything has happened until later. In these specific cases, we were able to identify the suspect. One way to avoid this is simply don’t lend your phone to someone, make the call for them or offer to call police to assist them if they indicate it’s an emergency. Also, use the security settings offered in cash transfer apps, such as passcodes. Avoid staying logged in to the application when not in use.

Officers were able to arrest a car burglar on Saturday (08/01/20) thanks to an alert homeowner who called 9-1-1 while keeping an eye on the suspect. Around 11:30 AM, the resident spotted a man inside his vehicle taking a power tool. When confronted, the suspect ran and the resident followed at a safe distance while providing a description to our dispatchers.

The now soaking wet suspect was arrested and a possible stolen bicycle was also recovered that was taken from another location. The suspect is identified as 24-year-old Jose Adrian Montanez from Garland. Kudos to our citizen and great work by patrol officers!
