Old Year Ends, New Begins with No Major Incidents

by Tony Vindell/LFN

Despite the celebrations that take place every New Year’s Eve, no major incidents were reported as a new year began in La Feria and elsewhere.

And that is credited to better police presence.

Police Chief Cesar Diaz said six officers, including himself and a captain were on duty on New Year’s Eve.

“We worked until four a.m. on New Year’s Day,” he said. “Nothing major happened.”

Diaz said a couple of arrests were made for driving while intoxicated and for public intoxication.

He said there was a report about a structural fire near the town of Santa Rosa.

Fire and EMS personnel responded to the call but it was a false alarm.

Other than that, no other incidents were reported.
