The suspect had his vehicle tires spiked when entering town and continued to drive on deflated tires until he baled from the vehicle at the southeast corner of the Richmond square.

I got a phone call today from someone saying I committed fraud in texas... and that they were suspending my social security number, the phone number that called me was 413 337-3357 when I told them I was with the fraud division in Missouri, they hung up on me LOL
Just wanted to give a big thank you to Police Officer Nevels for her help today. She was very kind and understanding of our situation.
A couple of months ago I was having trouble with my dogs getting loose and harassing my neighbors. Our dogs were breaking out of our privacy fence faster than we could repair it. One week they broke out of the fence twice! When they weren't getting out of the fence, my four y/o was letting them out the door. It was a very frustrating few weeks. The last time they got loose, the police were called. Officer Rachael Tarrant came and I told her the trouble we were having with the fence and my son. I asked her to talk to him because he wasn't listening to me when I told him to quit letting the dogs out the door. I think my request surprised her, but she talked to him. It worked! He no longer lets the dogs out because he doesn't want Mommy to get in trouble with the police! Thank you, officer Tarrant, for taking the time to listen to our problems, offer solutions and talk to my son.
I just wanted to write a quick note to say "thank you". Today I witnessed a car accident. An older lady drove fast going backwards and landed in a large ditch in front of Orselns. I stopped to help. The passenger was injured and the driver asked me to call the ambulance. As a former domestic violence advocate I have lots of experience with law enforcement. I was absolutely blown away by the entire process. The 911 operator was easy to understand, personable, and asked great questions. The police, ambulance, and fire responded within around 3 minutes of my call. All parties were kind, professional, and quick to take charge of the scene. They immediately started directing traffic, removing the injured passenger, and collecting evidence. They look pictures, measured the skid mark, interviewed the passenger and driver all within minutes. They asked me to give a statement and allowed me to wait in my truck. Both officers I interacted with were the perfect mixture of professional yet personable. They treated both the driver, passenger, and myself so nicely. Thank you Richmond PD for your excellent service! You are noticed and appreciated.
So.....did this happen?
Wanna say thank you to the office at Casey's tonight for the toys he gave my son just because. It really made his night. That was really sweet! And your all he's been talking about. Asking so many questions about your car and uniform. Thanks again!
I want to say thank you very much to officer nevels, the D.A.R.E officer. My son was telling me how she opened up with the kids and told them her life story and all the struggles she's been through. He was so inspired by her thats all he could talk about the night before graduation. I wanted to show her we appreciated her and all she does for the kids and how comfortable she makes them. He got her a yellow rose the day of graduation! 😉 Thanks again officer nevels you are awesome and a wonderful role model for the kids in the community!! RPD is lucky they have you on their team!
