October 26, 2010

Calls responded to during the 24 hour period October 25, 2010 for which the Galveston Police Department provides information to the public. Some events which police consider 'working cases' or 'ongoing investigations' are not made public.




A woman at 1512 41st St. called police as someone was breaking out a window in her house in an effort to get.  She told police when the intruder heard her on the phone she (woman intruder and she knew her name) jumped into a black Chevy Blazer and took off.  No arrest.

Police arrested 3 men at 202 20th Street for being drunk on alcohol or drugs. Joesph Lee Keleman, (Little Joe)48, Douglas Christopher Fleming, 42, and Jeffrey H. Hale, 52, were all BUSTED & CUFFED.  Hale had a joint.

Officers arrested Joseph William Murray, 31, of Pleasington, Texas after the department's newly acquired K-9, "Abba" snapped on Marijuana in his car after he was stopped in the 8900 block of Broadway.

A 25-year old resident of Coastal Breeze Apts, 2311 71st St. reported someone stole $300 from her wallet.  No suspect, no arrest.

Police were sent to Sea Isle on west Galveston Island where a woman reported receiving threatening text messages from her son.

Employees at Marshall's, 6307 Stewart Road, captured 24 year old Petronel Postolache who works on a cruse ship, shoplifting in their store.  He had a couple of electric razors, 3 wallets and 2 pair of socks when he was BUSTED & CUFFED.

A man called the police dispatcher while he was chasing a man who had just robbed him.  He said the robber had a weapon, then his cellphone disconnected. Duh! Chasing a man with a weapon, not cool.

49-year old Dwight Thrasher of Whitehouse, Texas was arrested at the Casa Del Mar Condos on the Seawall for assaulting his 17-year old daughter.

Kenneth Wayne Johnson, Jr., 21, of Galveston was BUSTED & CUFFED during a traffic stop at 3916 Avenue G for having .870 ounces of marijuana.

Devon Oshawn McQuirter, 23, of Houston made some cop mad apparently.  He was BUSTED & CUFFED for Disorderly Conduct, Obstructing a Roadway, Evading Arrest, Giving a False ID.  McQuirter sometimes calls himself Devon Malveaux.

A boyfriend/girlfriend fight at 1813 29th St. landed 40-year old Randle Medlin in the slammer.  He was charged with assault.

The resident at 3910 Avenue O-1/2 came home to find a man had broken into his home and was sitting on his sofa.  Jasan Joshua Stiles, 35, was escorted to the 'house of no sofas.'

Cynthia Villarreal, 30, and Brandon Limones, 27, both of Galveston were scooped up in a drug bust at 5501 Menard Ave.  Police seized with cocaine and meth.

There was a fight in Jack's Pub, 2406 Avenue E.  The bad guy got away.

Matthew Castaneda, Jr., 22, drover his Pontiac Grand Prix on the sidewalk, then made an illegal U-turn, drove the wrong way into oncoming traffic, then hit another car.   This all happened in the 1000 block of Seawall and Matthew wasn't even drunk.  But he was BUSTED & CUFFED.

Officer Chris Sanderson and K-9 partner "Abba" stopped a towncar at 7700 Broadway and sniffed out some Xanax, Marijuana, and Hydrocodone.  That bought a free cell in The Slammer for Edgar F. Flores, 18, of Galveston.

Larry Dynell Butler, 33, of Texas City went to Galveston with a bunch of drugs where he was met by Galveston Narc David Roark.  Seems he was also a bond jumper.  BUSTED & CUFFED.

A 52-year old woman was in Taco Cabana, 2729 61st Street when a couple of creeps took her wallet, jumped in their car, and took off. She said the wallet had $540 in cash in it.  Did she get her tacos?

Can't that you enough for letting us know what's REALLY going on, unlike that "other paper" that says Galveston is SO safe and crime free. Therefore, the officers can be cut back. Only through you, do we know the truth and can keep fighting for our officers and fireman.

Many, many kudos for the true info!
