TRAFFIC ALERT: Traffic is being rerouted from the southbound feeder at Loop 287 to State highway 94 west due to a structure fire at a nearby business. Take an alternate route if at all possible and expect delays in the area. #trafficalert

UPDATE: As of 11:30 p.m. we are resuming normal operations. Our dispatchers are returning from Cherokee County and 911 and non-emergency lines are functional once again. Dial 911 for emergency calls and 936-633-0356 for non-emergency calls. #glorygloryhallelujah #hugalineman #hugadispatcher #ohmylanta #dressrehearsalforthezombieapocalypse #contained #fridaythethirteenth #oneminuteleft

PLEASE SHARE: You can dial 911 for emergencies. Lufkin area 911 calls are being routed to Cherokee County. We are sending dispatchers there to assist with their call load. For non-emergencies, you may attempt to dial 936-633-0356, however, our non-emergency lines are still fairly unstable. We also have these numbers available for non-emergency calls: 936-229-0756 936-414-1201 If you have a non-emergency case to report, you can do so through our online crime reporting at http://cityoflufkin.com/police/onlinereporting.htm. An officer or detective will follow up with you. Phone lines are down due to a major line cut affecting the DETCOG region, including Angelina and Nacogdoches Counties. We do not believe this is directly affecting cellphone communications, however, the network is likely more congested which could create issues with cellular service and speed. We do not have an estimate on restoration at this point. #fridaythethirteenth

SHOUT OUT: A BIG thanks to Angelina & Neches River Authority for reaching out to our Special Response Team Commander Sgt. Travis Strickland. ANRA officials offered the use of their property (soon to be demolished) for training earlier this week. This was invaluable because the team rarely gets to train in unfamiliar territory. We appreciate your thoughtfulness and service to this community! #nothingtoseeherefolks #justtraining

DRUG ARREST: The Special Services Unit arrested five people on drug charges Monday following a raid at a Lufkin mobile home park. Billie Joe Dowdy, 32, Jasmine Thomas, 25, Tra Tudmon, 27, Maximino Padilla, 36, all of Lufkin, and Alfonso Padilla, 49, of Diboll, were taken into custody at a trailer on lot No. 12 of Scenic Acres Mobile Home Park off John Redditt Drive. Tudmon and Thomas, who is pregnant and responsible for the lease on the mobile home, have been dealing methamphetamine from the home and were recently evicted. Tudmon and Thomas were also each charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon for a 9mm handgun found in the bedroom they were sharing. The gun came back as being stolen. A search of the home and individuals arrested uncovered meth, pills, the gun, an assortment of drug paraphernalia and an unknown brown substance. Dowdy had a warrant for her arrest in addition to cocaine, Xanax and marijuana found in her bra. Additional charges are pending. The group was taken to the Angelina County Jail, where they are awaiting book in.

TRAFFIC ALERT: 69 south at Alta Street is down to one northbound lane and one southbound lane as we work to clear the scene of an accident. Avoid the area if at all possible. #trafficalert

SCAM ALERT: A local business owner reported being contacted by an individual claiming to be with the company who produces the T-shirts shot out of cannons at LHS football games. The caller told her that for $300, she could have her business name on the back of the shirt. She became suspicious after they asked for her credit card number multiple times. She then called the LISD Police Department and found out that though the individual gave the correct name of the company, it was likely a scam. We advise people/businesses to be aware that this is happening. #scamalert #nottoday

ROBBERY: Do you know this man? He made off with an undisclosed amount of cash from the Walmart Money Center around 10:30 a.m. Sunday after sliding the clerk a note that stated for her to give him all the money or she would get shot. He then walked out of the store, ran down parking aisle three, got into a tan vehicle at the back of the parking lot and drove away, using the exit between Starbucks and Outback Steak House. The clerk described him as a thin, black male with a mustache that ran into a beard and tattoos on both hands (possibly a name). She said he also spoke with an accent. If you have information on this crime, call us at 936-633-0356 or Crime Stoppers at 936-639-TIPS if you wish to remain anonymous. #robbery #walmart #639tips #crimestoppers
