Vehicle Burglary Suspects’ Plans Go South in Southland
Apr 12, 2017   03:51 PM

At approximately 3:45 this morning, San Angelo Police were dispatched to the 3300 block of Sierra Court for the report of suspicious activity.  The complainant, a newspaper courier, reported a man trying to conceal himself in the area. 

Responding Patrol Officer S. Beal searched the area and located two subjects who were walking through the neighborhood.  The pair was checked and cleared for warrants, not in possession of anything suspicious, and subsequently released from their detention. 

Over the course of the next few hours, Officers were dispatched to several calls for vehicle burglaries in the surrounding area, including one report of Hitachi Drills stolen from a vehicle in the 3100 block of Timber Ridge Drive and sunglasses stolen from a separate vehicle burglary in the 4500 block. 

In a dogged effort to locate the perpetrators, Officers continued their search of the area.  At approximately 6:00 a.m., Officer S. Beal observed a suspicious vehicle in the 3200 block of Sierra Drive.  Three of the windows were down and keys were in the console.  In an attempt to locate the registered owner, a records search showed the vehicle was registered to the same address as one of the subjects Officer Beal detained after the initial call on Sierra Court.  

Shortly after, Officer Beal observed the same two men, walking along Stone Canyon Trail — this time in possession of a bag the pair did not have during the previous contact.  

Subsequent to the field investigation, the men were found to be in possession of the stolen drills and sunglasses as well as other suspected stolen electronics and miscellaneous property.  

Coy Eugene Angley III, 26, was arrested and charged with Burglary of a Vehicle and Theft of Property <$2,500 2/More Previous Convictions.  Hector Manuel Gatica, 21, was arrested and charged with two counts of Burglary of a Vehicle. 

The pair was transported to the Tom Green County Jail without incident.   The Department’s Criminal Investigations Division was called out to the scene.  It is believed these arrests will clear several of the morning’s reported vehicle burglaries.

Vicious Dog Attacks Woman, Officer in North San Angelo
Apr 11, 2017   02:21 PM

Just before 2:20 p.m. on Monday, April 10, 2017, San Angelo Police were dispatched to the 1100 block of Volney Street for the report of a vicious dog that attacked a woman and caused injury. 

The first officer arrived and found several subjects protecting themselves with shovels and PVC pipe from a large-breed dog that was running loose. 

Medics arrived and but were unable to immediately aid the injured woman due to the dog’s continued aggression.  

As the Officer attempted to corral the dog to allow Medics to aid the woman, the dog turned on the Officer and bit him without release.  Fearing further injury to himself or others at the scene, the Officer drew his firearm and shot the dog two times.  The dog died at the scene. 

The Officer sustained minor injuries from the dog’s attack and was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment and later released.  The injured woman was transported to a nearby hospital where she later underwent surgery. 

Animal Control Personnel also responded to the scene.  No other injuries were reported.   The dog’s owner reportedly received a citation for Dog at Large.

Teen Motorcyclist Suffers Incapacitating Injuries Following Crash with Car on North Bell Street
Apr 10, 2017   06:56 PM

At approximately 4:00 p.m. today, San Angelo Police and Fire Department personnel were dispatched to North Bell and Preusser Streets for the report of a major vehicle crash involving a motorcycle and passenger car. 

The driver of the Kawasaki motorcycle, a 16-year-old San Angelo resident, was transported to Shannon Medical Center by ambulance for incapacitating injuries and later underwent surgery.  

The 19-year-old driver of the 2014 Hyundai Elantra, his 17-year-old female passenger, and their infant son reportedly received non-incapacitating injuries.  All three were transported to Shannon Medical Center by private vehicle. 

A preliminary investigation shows the motorcycle was traveling southbound on North Bell Street and the passenger car was eastbound on Preusser at the time of collision.  

The Department’s Traffic Section Investigators and Crime Scene Unit responded and Bell Street traffic was diverted from Koberlin to E. Harris Avenue. 

The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet and the occupants of the passenger car were reportedly wearing proper restraints.  The posted speed limit on that section of Bell Street is 40 MPH.  

This is an active investigation and further information will be released when it becomes available.
