An 8:55 am call, this date, to Cpl. Michael Strait of the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department to meet Federal Probation Officers resulted in charges of Abandonment/Endangerment of a Child on Amy Castillo, age 27, after two (2) year old twin girls were found locked in a room, nude and without food or sanitary bathroom facilities. Castillo is the Aunt of the twins. Lead Investigator Cpl. Strait is in the process of preparing a case to forward to the District Attorney’s office for possible charges against the mother of the two little girls, Brandy Dominguez, age 20, who, initially, was not at home when the Federal Officers arrived.

The Federal Probation Officers, out of Beaumont, had gone to the residence located at 200 CR 2283 to check on Brandy Dominguez as she is on pre-trial release for a Human Trafficking charge.

While there, the Officers heard scratching coming from a door leading to a bedroom. With Castillo’s permission, the double-locked door was opened and the Officers found the two twin girls in the room. Both were nude, no food nor toys were in the room, and Cpl.

COMMISSIONER NOACK ADDRESSES WOODLANDS CRIME
In light of the rash of armed robberies in South Montgomery County / The Woodlands, Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack called a press conference Saturday because he wants to send a clear message to those responsible.
“I want the criminals to know that they’re not welcome in south Montgomery County – that they need to go somewhere else,” Noack said.
The first-term commissioner, who took office in January, said “overall” his community is safe.
“You know, I’ve lived here since 2008, this is the first time I’ve had neighbors, friends, citizens calling me telling me that they feel unsafe,” he said.
“We’ve had more armed robberies than you would say would be usual,” Noack said. “It’s certainly well outside of ordinary to have three men with a gun enter into an establishment in The Woodlands at 9 o’clock in the evening demanding money from the cash register, so to that extent it is abnormal.”
Noack first said he was “not a law enforcement officer” and did not want to speculate on the “patterns or connectivity,” but later came close to doing just that.
“I think it’s the connectivity spurred by the growth,” Noack said. ” We are much more accessible than we’ve ever been, with Woodlands Parkway connected to 2978 — the growth that we’ve experienced on Gosling Road and Kuykendahl Rd, and with the activity on 45.”
“As commissioner, I want to make certain our law enforcement has the tools and resources they need to combat this; I want to make sure our citizens know their safety is our number one priority,” he said.
“Montgomery County prides itself on the law enforcement that we provide, and Sheriff Tommy Gage, Constable Ryan Gable, and our District Attorney Brett Ligon (none of whom were present), along with myself, understand what a priority safety is and we want our citizens to know that they will be safe at all times,” Noack said.
Noack stopped short of saying what tools or resources he was offering to law enforcement, but he offered some practical advice to his constituents.
I think “We would like our residents to be vigilant,” he said. “Lock your doors, shut your garage door when you enter your house. If you see something out of the ordinary, call us and let us know.”
“There’s really nothing too small.”

CAPTAIN HIGGINS ADDRESSES TEXAS CRIME STOPPERS
Also Wednesday, Captain Higgins addressed the group. Higgins is the patrol officer from St. Landry’s Parish, Louisiana who was promoted within a year from patrol, to Sgt. to Lt. and to Captain. This after he accepted a position from Sheriff Bobby Guidroz as his Public Information Officer. At the time he didn’t know that it included Crime Stoppers. Each week he would get in front of the cameras for local news crews in an effort to find wanted felons through Crime Stoppers. After several weeks he decided he could not speak from the scripts and decided to speak from the heart. It worked, 22 wanted felons turned themselves in within weeks. It put St. Landry’s Parish Crime Stoppers in the International Spotlight. The Louisiana State Police came to him and asked him to do a spot for them on seven wanted gang members called the “Gremlins”. His strong message which he did with several local law enforcement groups, brought the ACLU to St. Landry’s Parish. The Sheriff asked him to tone down his spots. To this Higgins said, “I will not kneel to violent street gangs. I will not kneel to murderers or the parents that raised them. I will not kneel to a discredited, wanna-be, black activist that doesn’t really have the best interest of his people in mind, who just wants to make a profit,” says Higgins. “I will not kneel to bureaucrats in Baton Rouge, Washington or anywhere else who have forgotten why they wear a badge and who have forgotten who they serve

PLUM GROVE CITY COUNCIL MEETING
Monday nights Plum Grove City Council meeting was attended by very few which is unusual from the past few meetings. Two main accomplishments were made at the meeting. The first was the hiring of a Police Chief. Of the many applicants, current Liberty County Constable John Joslin was selected to be the new Police Chief starting January 1, 2021. Joslin was raised in Plum Grove and knows the community well. In addition, the Council has retained Former ABC 13 Investigative Wayne Dolcefino to assist them in investigating some of the issues going on with the new development which has basically swallowed the small community. The City is in the midst of a lawsuit against Colony Ridge, the developer over drainage which has caused flooding and additional damage to the Community. With the cost of attorney’s, it was found to be feasible to hire Dolcefino to handle the investigative work for the suit and additional potential suits and claims of corruption within the county.
