Please be aware of the "You Have A Warrant" scam going around the DFW area. The caller states you have an active warrant and asks for a payment method. These types of notices are usually mailed. Hang up! Another recent scam is a person calls and says they are from the Social Security Office, wanting information. Again, hang up. Other recent scams are texted to your phone stating your PayPal, Netflix or similar account has been compromised and requires account verification. Lastly, a citizen received a call about his grandson being jailed, and was scammed out of $30,000. #SeeSomethingSaySomething

RECENT BLOTTER ITEMS:

• Officers were dispatched to a vehicle fire in a residential neighborhood. Caller reported that several vehicles had been set on fire. When Officers arrived at the location, they observed two vehicles in flames. TCFD extinguished the vehicle fires and TCFD Arson Investigator was called to the scene to investigate. Within 5 minutes from all units clearing the scene, the suspect set another vehicle on fire, causing damage to four other vehicles. The investigation is ongoing.

• Frisco Police Department notified The Colony Police Department dispatch of a shooting they believed occurred in The Colony. Frisco PD stated a victim with a gunshot wound to the back was at Medical City Frisco Hospital. Frisco PD also stated they were out with several other involved subjects and a vehicle in which the shooting occurred, at a Whataburger in Frisco. TCPD patrol officers and detectives from the Criminal Investigation Division responded to each scene. It was determined the four subjects were traveling northbound in the 5000 block of Main Street in The Colony when the backseat passenger inadvertently fired a round from a revolver through the front passenger seat, striking the front right passenger in the back. The subjects eventually dropped the victim off at the hospital and then made their way back to Whataburger. A search of the vehicle revealed several firearms and narcotics. The victim underwent surgery and is currently in stable condition. The investigation is ongoing.

• Officers responded to vehicle theft call in a parking lot. Officers spoke to the victim who said that he and his friend were sitting in the parking lot eating food, when two males wearing masks got into the unlocked back seat. Both male suspects pressed handguns against each of their necks and then stole the vehicle. The victim was later able to “ping” his phone and located the vehicle one street over. The vehicle owner’s wallet and phone were still in the car. The victim refused to allow Officers to fingerprint the vehicle and would not cooperate with Officers any further because he was only concerned about getting his vehicle back and not “helping the police arrest anyone.” There is no further suspect info at this time.

• Officers responded to a disturbance where the reporting party stated his ex-girlfriend was intoxicated and ramming his truck with her vehicle. He also reported that she was physically assaulting him. It was determined the female had her 5-year-old son in the vehicle while she was driving. She was placed under arrest for Assault Causing Bodily Injury – Family Violence, a class A misdemeanor, and Driving While Intoxicated with Child Passenger, a state jail felony. A case referral was generated with Child Protective Services.

• Officers responded to reports of a robbery at 7-11. The caller stated that two males came into the store and one male forced his way behind the counter while the other male acted as a lookout. The male behind the counter stuffed a trash bag with cigarettes, lotto tickets, and cash. The two males ran from the scene. Officers set up a perimeter but were unable to locate the suspects. The investigation is ongoing.

Tips for avoiding #COVID19 scams:
• Do not respond to calls or texts from unknown numbers, or any others that appear suspicious;
• Never share your personal or financial information via email, text messages, or over the phone;
• Be cautious if you’re being pressured to share any information or make a payment immediately;
• Scammers often spoof phone numbers to trick you into answering or responding. Remember that government agencies will never call you to ask for personal information or money;
• Do not click any links in a text message. If a friend sends you a text with a suspicious link that seems out of character, call them to make sure they weren't hacked; and,
• Always check on a charity (for example, by calling or looking at its actual website) before donating.

RECENT BLOTTER ITEMS:

• Officers were dispatched to reports of a male who was pointing a handgun and threatening people. The caller stated the male left in a vehicle. Officers located a vehicle matching the description and initiated a traffic stop at the intersection of Windhaven and Arbor Hills Way. The male was non-compliant with Officers and after a short standoff, the male gave up and was taken into custody. It was verified that he was the suspect threatening people with a gun. A search of his person and vehicle yielded cocaine, LSD tabs, THC edibles, an unknown brown powder believed to be narcotics, mushrooms, a rifle, two pistols, 10 large capacity magazines that were loaded, approximately 500 rounds of armor piercing ammunition, a mixture of other ammunition, a “Purge” style mask, and inhalant paraphernalia. The suspect was placed in jail for multiple charges.

• An Officer observed an unregistered dirt bike traveling on North Colony Boulevard. He attempted to stop the driver who refused to stop. The driver of the dirt bike tried to go around the rear of the patrol unit and fell over causing the dirt bike to slide into the patrol unit causing damage. Neither the Officer nor Suspect were injured. The suspect turned out to be a 13-year-old juvenile who was transported to Denton County Juvenile facilities for Evading Arrest with a Vehicle charges.

• An employee of Top Golf witnessed the occupant of a vehicle in the parking lot of Knockout Sports Bar discharge several rounds from a handgun. The suspect vehicle left the scene prior to officer’s arrival. Officers located nine 9mm shell casings in the parking lot. No damage to nearby businesses or vehicles was located. The suspect was not located and the investigation is ongoing.

• Officers were dispatched to an address in reference to a criminal mischief. Upon arriving, the victim reported that the tires on their vehicle had been punctured overnight while parked at their residence. While in the area the responding officer discovered more vehicles with punctured tires. Several officers responded to the area and located nine vehicle with punctured tires. During the course of the investigation, officers discovered some residences in the area with security cameras. Officer made contact with the homeowners and upon reviewing video found that these cameras captured the image of a potential suspect. The Criminal Investigations Division was contacted and the investigation is ongoing.

• Officers were dispatched to an in-progress burglary, where the suspect entered the victim’s apartment and punched him in the face. The victim pushed the suspect out of the apartment and then called the police, at which time the suspect jumped off the third floor of the building. Medics from TCFD transported the suspect to Plano Presbyterian Hospital, where it was determined that he suffered serious but not life threatening injuries. When the suspect was identified, officers talked to his roommate and found that the suspect had taken drugs earlier that morning which led to his erratic behavior. Due to the suspect’s injuries, charges will be filed at large.

It's that time again !! In school classes begins Tuesday, September 8th. Stay safe!
Any current "blotter" items?
In regards to the drills that you were pulling in your parking lot this morning, (August 5) I understand that the current social and political climate requires that you train for these types of situations. My question is: could you please train in a less conspicuous place? Seeing a “Citizen patrol” person with a rifle trained on a vehicle is a bit unnerving and quite frankly, distracting. Keep doing good work. Thanks officers.
Pappas Snow Cones is giving the colony police department free snow cones today !!!
With the state of everything going on in society and pointing out the bad that officers have done, I wanted to point out something good. Thank you to the 2 officers that changed my tire! It was late, I was in an unfamiliar place since I'm not from TX, roadside assistance wasn't going to get to me until after 11pm and trying to keep my composure talking to my family that's 900 miles away. You guys really put me at ease! I never got their names, but if they happen to see this, I hope they know this is for them lol! Thank you!
Assistant Chief Chandler will be calling BINGO Live today on Facebook from the senior center! Show your support by logging on to The Colony Parks and Rec page to watch the Live feed and play along!

I read a posting from a Mr. Paul Endes that made very specific threats and use of illegal weapons and bombs against protesters in Colony Tx. I have no idea if these are rantings of a crazy person, but wanted to give Colony PD a heads up. It may be well worth investigating and possible save lives.
Why is this man not behind bars?
We need you to make a public statement regarding these terroristic threats made by Mr. Endes. Your community needs to be reassured.
