During the two-week period between January 27 and Wednesday, Feb. 10, Van Alstyne Police received 376 calls for service, reported Sgt. Steve Hayslip. Sixteen of those calls resulted in offense reports and two in arrests. There were also three wrecks inside Van Alstyne PD jurisdiction, and Van Alstyne officers also assisted at a major wreck in Howe.

Hayslip urged that drivers use extra caution when driving, especially during these upcoming hard cold days and nights when there could possibly be moisture on the pavements.

February 1 Arrest — Police were called to a residence in the 600 block of North Henry Hynds regarding an altercation that had taken place, Hayslip said. The victim that that he felt injured, but did want medical help. Police jailed the suspect on a charge of assault causing bodily injury-family violence. The 45-year-old suspect, a Van Alstyne resident, remained incarcerated on February 10 in lieu of bail set at $20,000.

February 5 Arrest — Police jailed a Grand Prairie woman, on a charge of Possession of Controlled Substance, Penalty Group 1, less than 1 gram. Hayslip said this arrest was the result of a traffic stop made at the corner of Henry Hynds and Blasingame about 2 p.m. The arrestee was a passenger in the vehicle, and after, with probable cause, searching and finding methamphetamine in her possession, police released the vehicle and the driver. The suspect posted bail of $4,000 in surety bonds the next day for her release.

January 31 Wreck — A wreck on West FM 121 near the construction zone, resulted in the minor injury of the vehicle’s occupant. “We are beginning to see a rise in wrecks in this area,” Hayslip said, and asked that drivers heed all construction and warning signs, for their own and others’ safety.

Wreck with transport to hospital — This wreck happened on U.S. 75 and, because one occupant was a pregnant female, police called a Van Alstyne ambulance to take her to an area hospital as a precaution for her and the baby’s safety.

Wreck in Howe — Hayslip said the local police assisted Howe police with a major crash on U.S. 75. He said the car was going north when, just before arriving at the Haning Street exit, it left the roadway, flipped over more than once and threw the driver out.  Paramedics called in a helicopter ambulance, who flew the victim to a hospital for treatment.

Third V.A. wreck — The third wreck was a minor and required no medical transport.

February 2 Theft — One of those incident reports was for the theft of copper wire, taken from the location of a well on FM 121 West. Hayslip asked that, if anyone has information on this theft, for that person call the police station at 903-482-5251.
