April 5
hogzilla giant hog pig100 block of Wollschlaeger Driver, 11:53 a.m., A caller reported that there was a pot-bellied pig on his property tearing up his yard. [MDR: That’s just about a mile from my house. The feral hogs in this part of Texas can do a lot of damage to one’s garden. Photo: An unretouched photo of a giant hog. See “Hogzilla” at for more info.]
April 15
28000 block of Ruffian Drive, 5:30 p.m., Police and volunteer firefighters were called to a house fire. A resident told investigators that his wife was making dinner when their dog ran away and she began chasing it. The man said his wife left a pan on the stove and it caught fire. The fire spread to the kitchen cabinets. [MDR: Oops.]
100 block of Crosspoint, 7:28 a.m., Police responded to a fire alarm but cancelled the fire department when they found that a resident had tried to cook oatmeal without using any water and set off the fire alarm. [MDR: April 15th must have been a special day for foolish cooking accidents.]
April 16
1300 block of S. Main Street, 4:46 p.m., A caller reported an elderly female who was walking around the parking lot and appeared to be disoriented. Police contacted the woman, who said she was looking for money on the ground so she could buy a light for her vehicle. The officer gave the woman $2 for the light. [MDR: Now that’s what I call a helpful police officer. They don’t do that in the big city.]
100 block of Turner, 6:31 p.m., A caller reported two men hitting golf balls from the bowling alley parking lot to the church parking lot. The men were gone when police arrived. [MDR: At least they weren’t hitting bowling balls in the direction of the church parking lot.]
200 block of High Street, Comfort, 8:46 a.m., A student called after finding a cat stuck in a rain gutter. The cat freed itself before deputies arrived. [MDR: High crimes and misdemeanors in the Hill Country!]
