Police Investigate Afternoon Rollover Crash near HEB
Oct 31, 2019   06:45 PM

October 31, 2019 — Just before 1:40 p.m., San Angelo Police were dispatched to the area of Sherwood Way and Avenue N for the report of a rollover vehicle crash with possible entrapment.  

Arriving officers discovered a 2017 Nissan SUV resting on its roof in HEB’s parking lot.  The driver, a 39-year-old woman, had already been assisted out of the vehicle by an off-duty San Angelo Police Officer who was near the crash when it occurred.  The woman was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured. 

The preliminary crash investigation revealed that the Nissan’s driver had been eastbound on Avenue N when her vehicle was struck by a 2016 Buick passenger car that had exited HEB’s parking lot.  The force of the collision caused the Nissan to spin around clockwise and hit the curb, causing it to flip over onto the roof and collide with another vehicle that was unoccupied. 

After the first collision, the Buick continued out onto Avenue N where it collided with a 2008 Toyota SUV that had also been traveling east on Avenue N.  The Toyota’s driver, a 75-year-old woman, was not injured.  

The Buick’s driver, an 87-year-old woman, went to an area hospital by private vehicle for evaluation of non-incapacitating injuries.  The woman received a citation for Failure to Yield Right of Way from Private Drive.

Two Davids Charged in Connection to Multiple Burglaries Thanks to Two Tenacious Detectives’ Hours
Oct 25, 2019   04:12 PM

Earlier this month, San Angelo Police Detectives developed information about two suspects, a U-Haul moving, van and a tan-colored van with stolen plates that were linked to a number of storage room and vehicle burglaries throughout our city.  

On October 18th, a Patrol Sergeant located the vehicle, a 1999 Chevrolet Venture, parked at the Fall Creek Apartments.  Upon locating the van, members of the Department’s Anti-Crime Unit established surveillance of the area and after a short time the two suspects previously identified through investigation, 32-year-old David Pool and 31-year-old David Pruitt, were observed walking to the van.  Both men were taken into custody for drug charges.  Pool had previously been charged with a burglary of a storage unit back in August and had an active warrant for his arrest. Detectives obtained information through the investigation that these two suspects used a U-Haul van in the commission of a storage unit burglary, which ultimately led San Angelo Police Department Detectives to locate and seize hundreds of items of suspected stolen property from a hotel room, a storage unit, and a private residence. 

Following the pair’s arrest, the detectives began the arduous task of sorting through and cataloging the recovered property.  Thus far, seven victims have been contacted about the recovery of their items.  Some of the items, including an ASU Girls Basketball Championship ring and the cremated remains of an adult female, have already been reunited with their owners.  Department officials will be reaching out to other victims as the remainder of the property is linked to existing reports. 

Pool and Pruitt have been charged with Burglary of a Building.  Additional charges are pending the outcome of this ongoing investigation.
