INVESTIGATING ANIMAL ATTACK

January 15, 2019

El Paso, TX – On Monday, January 14, 2019, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Licon Dairy in reference to an animal welfare call just after 7:30am.

Sheriff’s Office deputies were advised by the victim that two unknown dogs made their way into one of their animal pens attacking and killing several of their animals.

The victim shot the German Shepherd and Pitbull mix in an attempt to stop the attack, subsequently killing both dogs. The animals and dogs were buried by the victim. 

Animal Welfare Officers took over the investigation, in accordance with the Sheriff’s Office contract to provide animal control services to the City of San Elizario.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for assistance in locating or identifying the owners of the two dogs involved if anyone has any information regarding this investigation please contact the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office at (915)832-4408.

PECAN THEFT

PECAN THEFT

January 14, 2019

El Paso, TX – For decades, the Upper and Lower Valleys have been producing bumper crops of pecans using water from the Rio Grande.  It is currently estimated the annual production is around 30 million pounds.  This results in an estimated yearly economic stimulus to our local economy of approximately $75 million.  Each year, when harvest time approaches, individuals trespass into privately owned orchards from nearby roadways and steal as many pecans as they can carry.  This results in an estimated loss to our local economy of about $1.5 million per year.

Pecans are the livelihood of many hardworking farmers in our county and these thefts impact them, their families, and their employees who work year round to produce a successful crop. 

In light of the recent arrests of Carlos Martin Pargas and Leonardo Gomez, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office is urging people to not remove pecans without the consent of the owner.   This would include those pecans that fall onto the public right-of-way. 

This year, as in other years, deputies will be on the lookout for individuals taking pecans without consent.   People who are caught will be arrested and charged with the appropriate crimes to include theft.
