Lubbock Police Department News

Lubbock Police Detectives need your help identifying and locating the suspect in the video! He is wanted in connection to Fraud. The great news is that the video is about as clear as we can get! So, our detectives believe that it won't be difficult for someone to recognize him. If you do know him, or you remember seeing him, feel free to comment on the post, message us, or call Crime Line at 741-1000. We want to stress that you ALWAYS have the option of staying anonymous. Our detectives request help when they've exhausted all types of avenues working to identify these criminals....which is why we need YOUR help!

SLOW DOWN! During all the hectic, crazy excitement of going on Spring Break vacation, we sometimes forget the simple things! Take a moment and look around your home. Do you have things like laptops or tablets left out? Did you put your jewelry up? Hide those easy to grab, high dollar valuables. Thieves want to get in and out quickly. Also, take the time to ensure a trusted friend will periodically check on your home and pick up newspapers and mail. The key is to create the illusion someone is home. It's a busy travel season. Get plenty of sleep before heading out for a long trip on the road and be extra cautious while driving!

Don't forget, City Council is meeting today!

"Here's to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them." We would like to take a moment on this #InternationalWomensDay to say THANK YOU to the strong women here at the police department. While you may not see them on a daily basis, whether they're sworn, or civilian....it is their dedication & contribution that helps to keep this place running! Thank you for all you do, not only today, but every day. We'd also like to take a moment to thank Melissa Orosco, another strong woman here at the department, for taking the time to capture a snapshot of their busy days!

As we move further in to Tax Season, the video below is a great reminder about IRS scams and just how persistent those scammers can be! The Midland Police Department did a great job of showcasing some of the tactics scammers try to use....even on police officers! Remember, the IRS will NEVER call you asking for money, neither will any law enforcement agency. That's just not how we do it! If you do get one of these calls, dealing with them is as easy as hanging up the phone! While the officer in this video engaged these scammers, it's important to remember, he's trained to deal with crooks. We promise it is OK to HANG UP! Also, we want the public to know that in these situations, it's also OK to call us and talk to an officer about what the person on the other end of the phone is telling you. We would much rather you talk to us, than them!

Earlier this afternoon, we mentioned that as we move in to the spring season, it's important for everyone to know what to do when they receive weather warnings. One of the ways you can receive those alerts is through LBK Alert - they city's Emergency Notification System. It's very simple to sign up, all you have to do is click on the link below!

This is a FANTASTIC reminder from the US National Weather Service Lubbock Texas, as we move in to the spring season here on the South Plains! Not only does it explain what the warnings mean, but it also explains what you should do when those warnings occur!

Just a reminder - this is taking place until 5:00 p.m. TODAY!! Code Administration will have a field office set up at Mose Hood Park located at 27th Street and Ave P. So, if you're interested in talking to code inspectors, then feel free to stop by! https://mylubbock.us/news-item-01/2018/03/07/default-calendar/neighborhood-deployment-in-slaton-bean-neighborhood-scheduled

We don't usually give fashion advice, but I think we can all agree this is not the look to strive for this spring break.

Detectives with the Lubbock Police Department are asking for help finding this suspect wanted on charges of Criminal Mischief! The incident took place late last month at the Richard Milburn Academy. In the video, there are plenty of clear pictures of the suspect. So, our detectives are hopeful that someone who knows him, will identify him! Clearly, he's not too worried about breaking the law, especially since he felt the need for a coffee break that night. After all, being a criminal is tough work, it deserves a nice little pick me up....NOT! What he DOES deserve though, is to be held accountable for his actions....which is why we need YOUR help. If you know who this guy is, or where he hangs out, feel free to comment in a post below, message us, or call Crime Line at 741-1000. Remember, you can always remain anonymous!

We sure do have a lot of Thank You's to hand out today! This time, we'd like to take a moment to thank the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce for hosting us and allowing us to be part of today's Diversity Summit! The afternoon was dedicated to creating a dialogue about ways to increase diversity, as well as "creating a culture of intentional inclusion" right here in the Hub-City. Talk about one AWESOME way to do lunch!

We've got to take a minute to brag on the City of Lubbock and the people who live here! HOW AWESOME IS THIS?!?! We love positive stories - especially ones that include rescue animals finding their #furever homes! Thank you Lubbock Animal Shelter Adoption Center!

We would like to give a big shout out and THANK YOU to the second graders at Southcrest Christian School who stopped by today! While these kiddos came by the Police Department this morning for a tour - they left a big impact on us! They donated stuffed animals to be given to other children in need. Your donation will help so many kids right here in the Hub-City. In fact, your kindness will, without a doubt, reach farther than you could imagine!

Lubbock Police Detectives need your help locating the suspect in this video! The good news is the video is pretty clear and we believe someone out there should recognize him fairly quickly! As you can see, the suspect has no problem attempting to burglarize an ATM at Centennial Bank...meaning he had no problem trying to tatake YOUR money! So, our detectives would appreciate all the help they can help identifying and locating this guy! If you have any information about WHO he is, or WHERE he is, we ask that you call Crime Line at 741-1000.

Spring Break is right around the corner! Do you plan on leaving town? Plan ahead and make sure you have a trusted neighbor or friend keep an eye on your house. Also, DO NOT post your vacation plans all over social media. That's a huge advertisement to thieves that your home will be empty.

Today is the last day for FREE adoptions at the Lubbock Animal Shelter Adoption Center!

If you haven't noticed, the Marsha Sharp Freeway expansion is complete!

REMINDER: This is happening today!

***UPDATE: ALL LANES ARE BACK OPEN*** The Lubbock Police Department is investigating a deadly rollover on South East Loop 289. At approximately 12:15 p.m. on Friday, officers responded to reports of a single vehicle crash in the area of SE Loop 289 and East Slaton Highway. Officers located a damaged SUV in the westbound access road of SE Loop 289. The male driver, and only occupant of the SUV, was pronounced deceased at the scene. Accident Investigators responded to the area to begin their investigation. Initial information gathered at the scene indicates the SUV was traveling north east on SE Loop 289. It appears the SUV crossed the median and continued across the south west lanes of the loop. The SUV then struck a guardrail and rolled onto the access road before coming to a stop. The circumstances surrounding this crash remain under investigation by the LPD Accident Investigation Unit. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Accident Investigators are on scene of a fatal rollover at SE Loop 289 and E. Slaton Highway. At this time the westbound access road of SE Loop 289 between SE Drive and Highway 84 is shut down. The main north west lanes of the Loop are down to one open lane.

***PUPPY POLL UPDATE**** We want to remind everyone that the puppy poll will close at 5:00 p.m. TODAY! So, if you haven't already, be sure and vote on the name you like the best for this precious one! Instructions on how to vote are in the original post below. In the coming days we will explain more about her....including how she joined our team, what exactly she will be doing, and all the amazing processes that will go along with her journey! But, for now, we'll go ahead and pass on a tidbit of information that several of people have asked. WHAT BREED IS SHE?!? Well, she's a Bernedoodle (cross between a Standard Poodle and a Bernese Mountain Dog) and yes, there is a reason this particular breed was chosen. We'll explain more on WHY sooner than you think! Also, we've got an updated picture of our girl, so you can get a better look at just how ADORABLE she is! https://www.facebook.com/LubbockPD/photos/a.221703832103.132645.186339492103/10155529234917104/?type=3&theater.

Lubbock Police Detectives are asking for the public's help in locating the suspect in this video. As you can see, after blatantly stealing a phone from one of the display tables, the suspect then did everything but SPRINT out of this particular Sprint store! Our detectives are hoping to catch up with him and believe that someone may hold a key piece of information that could help them solve this case! If you know who the suspect is, or where he might be, we ask that you call Crime Line at 741-100!

**UPDATE at 8:50A.M.: The I-27 southbound access road between Highway 84 and 66th Street has been reopened. Here is the preliminary information we have on the crash: At approximately 6:20 this morning, we received a call that a car had just struck a pedestrian in the 6500 block of the I-27 southbound access road. The pedestrian, a 64-year-old male, was transported by ambulance to the hospital with serious injuries. At this time, it appears the pedestrian walked eastbound into the lane of traffic and was struck. The driver of the car stayed on scene, called police and is cooperating with investigators. This case remains under investigation by the Lubbock Police Department Accident Investigation Unit. ***THIS COULD IMPACT YOUR MORNING COMMUTE*** Right now we have accident investigators on scene of a crash were a pedestrian was struck.The I-27 southbound access road from Highway 84 to 66th Street is shut down. This area is expected to be shut down for several hours. We will provide updates on the crash and when the road is expected to be reopened as soon as those details become available,

We are so honored and humbled to live in a community that always recognizes the hard work by our first responders! Tonight one of our own is being recognized as an unsung hero for the work he has done in our Special Operations Unit to crack down on major drug dealers and his leadership in other units.

Just a reminder that this is happening today - and will continue tomorrow as well!

A big thank you to the Texas Department of Transportation for inviting us to be a part of their #PlanWhileYouCan campaign. With spring break right around the corner, we all came together to help spread this simple message...if you plan to drink, plan ahead to have a sober driver get you home safely. While driving drunk can land you in jail with some hefty fines, there are far worse consequence. Drunk driving kills. Please be responsible, have fun, but have a sober ride. Between cabs, ride sharing apps, and good friends, there should be no excuse to not have a sober ride home. #planAhead #DrinkDriveGoToJail
