Rumors have recently circulated on social media that a homeless resident of Alvin was found deceased under the Gordon St. bridge. This is not the case. Yesterday afternoon an Alvin resident was found deceased in his home in the 200 block of Mclemore St. At this time, the death is believed to be of natural causes. Around the same time, officers also responded to a call for service in the area of the Gordon St. bridge. No one was injured or deceased at that scene. The two calls were unrelated.

The City of Alvin’s gun range was being used by another agency this week. Their training extended longer into the evening hours than we were aware or anticipated. The agency has been contacted and going forward will adhere to a 10PM cut off time. We’ve also suggested that they wait until fall to conduct night time training to make use of the extended periods of dark time hours. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Regular traffic enforcement will continue throughout the city.

Alvin Police responded to a two vehicle accident which occurred at the intersection of SH 35 and FM 528.

On Friday, March 23rd, the Alvin Police Department was alerted to a social media post concerning what the poster believed to be a possible attempt by unknown persons to abduct her children from a local retail store. The investigation, including a careful review of surveillance video which captured the activities of the poster as well as the gentlemen in question, does not support the poster’s accounting of the event. There was nothing in the investigation that suggested the gentlemen were doing anything other than shopping. As a reminder, it is always wise to be cognizant of your surroundings and the behavior of those around you. Remember, “if you see something, say something”. Report suspicious activity to police immediately.

Fire in the 400 blk of N Shirley. Avoid the area!
