Between Oct. 2 and Oct. 17, the Van Alstyne Police Department received 483 calls for service and responded to 28 incidents. Chief Tim Barnes gave this information on those of Misdemeanor A or higher crime offense status.
Theft of property between $100-$750 — Oct. 2, taken were two silver-in-color hubcaps off a vehicle parked in the 400 block of West Van Alstyne Parkway.
Driving while license suspended — Oct. 5, three people were charged in separate traffic stops, each on a charge of driving while license suspended or invalid. Barnes said that the first happened when an officer stopped a southbound car on U.S. Hwy 75 because of a driving infraction. Charged was a 46-year-old resident of Carrollton. The second happened, also southbound, on U.S. 75 at County Line Road. The third driver was a 30-year-old female from Princeton, who was stopped in the 900 block of West Van Alstyne Parkway. All are being filed at large, because of the hold on incoming Grayson County prisoners at that time, mandated by the transfer of prisoners from jails affected by Hurricane Harry.
Drug arrest — Oct. 5, an officer stopped a southbound vehicle on U.S. 75 at about 6:30 a.m. and found the driver, a 56-year-old Van Alstyne resident, in possession of marijuana between 2-4 ounces in weight. This was the result, too, of a traffic violation and the resulting traffic stop.
DWI infraction — Oct. 7, about 4:15 p.m., Van Alstyne police and ambulance went to a minor wreck on Lincoln Park Road. The driver had left the roadway and crashed his car, Barnes said. Because EMS took him to a nearby hospital, where he was admitted for injuries, police will be filing at large on the 33-year-old McKinney resident for driving while intoxicated.
DWI arrest — Oct. 7, just after noon, a 63-year-old Fairfield, Ohio, woman crash on U.S. 75. She was not injured and police jailed her on a charge of driving while intoxicated. She posted $1,500 in surety bonds the next day for her release.
Driving infraction arrest — Oct. 11, about 1:30 a.m., police stopped a car on a moving violation on U.S. 75. Jailed was a 22-year-old woman of Dallas, on a charge of driving while license suspended with previous convictions on the same charge. She posted $3,000 in surety bonds the same day for her release.
Assault complaint — Oct. 13, a complainant called police because of an apparent assault in the 500 block of Tolson. When arrived, neither the complainant nor the victim wanted to file charges, and the victim required no medical attention. No arrests were made, Barnes said.
Assault complaint — Oct. 14, just after midnight, police were called to a home in the 1500 block of Colgate. Barnes said this was a domestic disturbance and the reports will be turned over to the Grayson County District Attorney for possible charges. The victim did not require medical attention.
DWI arrest — Oct. 15, a 39-year-old Van Alstyne woman ran her car into a street sig on N. Waco at Cobb Street. She failed the sobriety test that police administered and went to jail on a Misdemeanor A charge of driving while intoxicated and a Misdemeanor B charge of duty on striking a fixed highway object.
