Brady Police Department requests public assistance on several cases

The Brady Police Department is requesting public assistance with a number of offenses reported over the past few weeks. According to interim police chief Jim Wright, a marked grave marker’small in size’was turned in to the local police department around the first of April. After lengthy searches through Brady and McCulloch County cemetery record books, all attempts to bring the marker back to its permanent site have been unsuccessful. “The grave marker measures “about 14 inches long and five inches wide,” said Wright. “It bears an engraving that reads: Jo Jo Awalt, 16.” The marker was found near Brady Lake, and anyone with information about the grave marker or possible crimes committed can contact the Brady Police Department at (325) 597-2121. H In another offense, Wright mentioned that a considerable amount of complaints have been reported to the local police department concerning pet owners who turn their dogs and cats loose at night to roam area neighborhoods. According to Wright, this is a Class C misdemeanor offence and could be punishable by up to a $500 penalty charge. H Beginning Monday, May 19 the Brady Police Department will begin participation in the annual “Click- it or Ticket” campaign sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The campaign will continue through June 1 and will cover the Memorial Day weekend. Safety belt violations will be heavily enforced during this period. Wright advises motorists of the importance of wearing seat belts both during and outside of the “Click It or Ticket” campaign. H Brady Police Officer Chris Jones responded to a report of malicious mischief Easter Sunday at Brady Lake. Upon arrival, Jones was informed by Brady Lake marina operator Sally Wright that vandals have been entering the grounds late at night or possibly early in the morning and cutting limbs from two willow trees planted along the shoreline near the marina. According to Mrs. Wright, the trees have sentimental value and were donated, as well as planted, in the memory of another individual. It is suspected that the same individuals who destroyed the trees also participated in the stealing of geese eggs. The eggs were nestled under one of the trees destroyed and were replaced with rocks. Anyone with information about this incident may contact the local police department at the before mentioned number.
