Maverick County Sheriff's Office-April 1, 2015



The following article was taken from the March 31, 2015 edition of the Zocalo Newspaper:



El sheriff del condado de Maverick estuvo en una reunión el día de ayer con personal de la subprocuraduría de búsqueda de personas desaparecidas de la PGJE, con la finalidad de intercambiar información para la localización de ciudadanos norteamericanos en territorio mexicano.

Tom Schmerber dijo que gracias a este intercambio de información se ha localizado a personas en cárceles del estado de Texas y que habían sido reportadas como desaparecidas, señaló que aunque desafortunadamente están detenidas, es un alivio para las familias saber que están vivos.

Es por tal motivo que acudió para intercambiar información sobre algunas personas que están desaparecidas en los Estados Unidos para que las autoridades del norte de Coahuila cotejen la información y localizar a estas personas para saber su estatus actual.

Señaló que de momento se está trabajando en el caso de una mujer de la tercera edad, que por algunos padecimientos de salud no puede viajar a Piedras Negras para solicitar información sobre sus dos hijos desaparecidos, asimismo declaró que se continúan las investigaciones sobre la desaparición de la señora Cázares en la ciudad de Eagle Pass.

Desde hace aproximadamente ocho años que se había perdido la comunicación entre las autoridades de ambas ciudades por lo que esta vez que se retomaron las reuniones ya se han dado resultados favorables gracias a esta coordinación señaló.

Además agregó que no se descarta que elementos policiacos del vecino país pudieran apoyar con investigaciones en el lado mexicano o viceversa, siempre y cuando se den los permisos necesarios para estas acciones.

County units were dispatched to the intersection of FM 2030 and Crane Street Friday evening  after a vehicle caught fire by the side of the roadway. At approximately 11:19 PM, deputies were en route and found a white motor vehicle engulfed in flames. Eagle Pass Fire Department crews were on hand to extinguish the blaze. Deputies were then able to identify the vehicle as a 2015 white Toyota Rav-4. The owner, identified as Elizabeth Rodriguez, was located and stated she had been traveling on FM 2030 nearly an hour earlier when the vehicle's steering wheel locked and was forced to park the vehicle. Ms. Rodriguez had planned to leave the vehicle overnight at the location and return the next morning with her father to pick it up.

After further investigations, Fire Department Arson Investigations concluded the fire stemmed from an electrical shortage the vehicle had underneath its dashboard. The vehicle was towed into town by a local wrecker service. No damages were caused to the residence where the incident occurred.

Deputies were dispatched to Highway 277 North Thursday evening after receiving reports of a rollover accident. Units arrived approximately 12 miles out of the city limits to find a 2003 Dodge Caravan on its side after apparently having struck a light pole. Contact was made with the driver and the passenger of the vehicle, later identified as thirty-three year old Jacob Quintenia and twenty-seven year old Catholine Corkill. The couple were traveling northbound on Highway 277 with their two year old when the driver stated an 18 wheeler came onto his driving lane, causing Mr. Quintenia to swerve in order to avoid an accident. He then lost control of the vehicle, where it ultimately ended on its passenger side. EMS crews were summoned to the location and transported the occupants of the mini-van to the Fort Duncan Regional Medical center for treatment. The Texas Department of Public Safety arrived at the scene and has since taken over investigations.
