Last week, Buckeye Police Chief Larry Hall gave an award to a Verrado High School student named, Collin Kupsky. Collin was in Walton Park in Verrado and located $200.00 as well as a credit card. Instead of pocketing the money, Collin brought the items home to his parents and suggested to notify the police. Officers responded and the items were returned to the rightful owner. Chief Hall presented Collin with a Certificate of Appreciation for the “Honor and Integrity” that he displayed through his actions. Collin was also given a BPD challenge coin as well as a gift card. Thank you Collin for your honesty. – Buckeye Police Chief Larry Hall

On August 2, 2018 at 12:44pm, Buckeye Police Officers responded to a domestic violence dispute that occurred at a residence located at the 22900 block of W. Pima Street. On arrival, it was reported a female inside the home was committing criminal damage and had disorderly behavior. When officers attempted to contact the female suspect, who was inside of the residence, she became uncooperative. Moments after officers arrived, officers heard gunshots that came from within the involved residence. It was confirmed the female suspect was the sole occupant of the residence and that she was in possession of a handgun. Additional resources, including additional Patrol officers, Buckeye Police Department SWAT team, and the Buckeye Fire Department, were called to the scene for assistance. After extensive efforts to speak with the female suspect, she barricaded herself within the residence. Buckeye PD SWAT negotiated for over 3 hours. At about 4:30pm the female suspect exited her home and was safely taken into custody. Further investigation confirmed the female suspect discharged a firearm and she damaged property within the residence. The female suspect was identified as 41 year old Buckeye resident, Heather Galbraith. The female suspect was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on domestic violence and weapons offense charges. During this incident, homes in the area were evacuated, and streets were closed for the safety of residents.
