Report Graffiti, Potholes, Illegal dumping and more!

A 46-year-old Colton man was hospitalized after an apparent suicide attempt at a warehouse in the 2200 block of Palmetto Ave. early Friday morning.

Police and Fire Department paramedics responded to the report of a gunshot victim inside the Burlington Coat Factory warehouse, 2200 Palmetto Ave., at about 6:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 20. Inside the business they located the victim suffering from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Focus on curbing alcohol violations is part of Responsible Redlands initiative

Seeking to discourage alcohol-soaked post-rush week festivities, police will conduct dedicated party patrols this weekend aimed at curtailing underage drinking, the latest enforcement action as part of the newly launched Responsible Redlands initiative.

“We often see significant alcohol related problems — including numerous hospitalizations — at universities around the country during fall as students descend on campus,” said Police Chief Mark Garcia. “We want to make sure the academic year in Redlands gets off to a safe start.”

Officers will conduct special party patrols aimed at cracking down on underage alcohol parties Friday and Saturday evening.

Bicycles and new helmets will be given away when the Redlands Police Department hosts a Bicycle Rodeo Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Redlands Community Center.  The Bicycle Rodeo is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Redlands Community Center, 111 W. Lugonia Ave. 

Funds for bicycles were donated by Wal-Mart and various community members.  The rodeo will be staffed by retired police officers, volunteers from the Redlands Police Department and community members.   Bicycle helmets were purchased with monies secured from a grant awarded to the Redlands Police Department.

The City of Redlands is seeking Redlands residents interested in serving on the Cultural Arts Commission. Commissioners are appointed by the City Council

The Cultural Arts Commission promotes public interest in arts, recommends new arts programs and sources of funding for those programs, assists the City Council by recommending policies to encourage, develop and support the arts in Redlands, and advises the City Council in the administration of the City's "Art in Public Places" program.

The City of Redlands recently took delivery of two new heavy duty side loaders which run on liquid natural gas (LNG), paid for in part by funds from the Mobile Source Reduction Committee (MSRC) designated for the purchase of heavy duty alternative fuel vehicles. The new vehicles join a heavy duty LNG front loader delivered last spring.

The City’s Solid Waste Department took delivery of the first vehicle in April and the remaining vehicles in August.

Investigators are seeking the public’s help in identifying a murder suspect after police matched DNA evidence from the February 2013 case to the unidentified suspect in 10-year-old kidnap, rape and assault case in the San Bernardino area.

On the evening of Feb. 26, 2013, the body of 23-year-old Sylvia Marie Flores, of Perris, was found by a resident in an orange grove off Almond Avenue west of Alabama Street in Redlands.

Detectives believe Flores was a prostitute working in the City of San Bernardino at the time of her death. Flores was last seen at a gas station at 6th and H streets in San Bernardino shortly before 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 25. She last spoke with her friends via text messages and phone calls at about noon that day.

DNA evidence recovered from Flores’ remains has been matched to that of an unknown suspect involved in a kidnap, rape and assault in the areas of Highland and San Bernardino in 2003. Personal property belonging to Flores was also recovered near the area where the 2003 rape and assault occurred.

A 51-year-old man suffered major injuries after he ran out of gas and was struck by another driver while standing behind his disabled vehicle.

The accident was reported shortly after 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, on Alabama Street at Industrial Park Avenue. The victim was driving a Ford pickup south on Alabama when he ran out of gas. He was standing behind the truck retrieving a gas can when he was struck from behind by a 1991 Honda Accord driven by an 18-year-old Diamond Bar man.

Redlands Fire Department Engineer Matthew Ley was named the 2013 Volunteer of the Year by the Fire & Burn Foundation at the organization’s annual Spirit of Courage Awards Banquet, Aug. 16.

The Fire & Burn Foundation is a non-profit health agency dedicated to reducing burn injuries and deaths through fire and burn prevention education, burn survivor support programs and the funding of burn care research and treatment.

The Fire and Burn Foundation Volunteer of the Year award is presented to a member of the fire service community in appreciation of his or her outstanding support and service to the Foundation.  This year the Fire and Burn Foundation honored Ley for his “countless hours, energy and enthusiasm to the Foundation.”

On Monday, Sept. 9, Redlands Police detectives in a joint effort with the Pima County, Arizona, Sheriff’s Department Fugitive Investigative Strike Team (FIST), arrested a suspect in the 1988 cold case murder of a 56-year-old Redlands woman.

Jimmy B. Morrison, 63, was arrested at approximately 8:20 a.m., for the June 15, 1988, murder of Catherine Dade, the director of the Guadalupe Boys Home in Yucaipa, where Morrison was the assistant director.

Dade’s body was discovered that same day in her south Redlands home after she failed to show up to work. She had suffered blunt force trauma and other injuries.

Redlands detectives launched a homicide investigation and identified Morrison as a person of interest, but the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office declined to file charges at the time.

Your home can be a target of opportunity for burglars when you are away on vacation. The Redlands Police Department wants to help protect residents’ property from opportunistic thieves with a new vacation program designed to catch criminals in the act.

Residential burglaries in Redlands from January to July 2013 have risen nearly 16 percent over the same time period last year. Beginning in September 2013, Redlands residents can contact the Redlands Police Department before leaving for any extended period of time and arrange to check out a small tracking device that can be hidden on items of value that are particularly attractive to burglars.

The motion sensitive device is activated once the resident leaves on vacation. Any movement of the device will set off a signal that sends a text to both the resident and the Police Department. Officers can then use tracking software with the device to quickly locate the stolen property and the thief.
