Just FYI: This is the actual body camera used by Houston police officers. There are about 300 to 400 on the streets of HTown. The value of each camera is $900 and it was purchased from an Allen, Texas based company.
On Thursday, July 21, 2016 Constable Rowdy Hayden along with 6 deputies from his office donated their time
to raise money for the Texas Special Olympics at the annual “Tip a Cop” event. Between the hours of 5p-9p,
Pct. 4 walked the floor of the Texas Roadhouse restaurant in Kingwood, TX introducing Texas Special Olympics
athletes to the restaurant patrons. The patrons were asked to “tip” the cops, where 100% of the cop’s tips
went to the Texas Special Olympics. In all, $3,300 were raised in those 4 hours to sponsor the athletes,
beating Pct. 4’s last year’s amount of $2,500. This event was held at Texas Roadhouse restaurants all across
the state of Texas.
Constable Hayden said, “It’s great to be able to take part in events like this. It was awesome to meet the
Olympians as well as introduce them to the people we serve and protect each and every day. I’m also proud
of my deputies that donated their time to help out.”

Harris County Sheriff’s Office Crimes Against Children investigators and in cooperation with Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE) have charged 37 year old Dr.Joshua Adam Robbins, a children’s dentist with attempted Indecency with a child.
Investigators were contacted by a clinical therapist in April of 2016, who had reason to believe that Dr. Robbins sexually assaulted a minor child.
Clinicians are required by law to report patients they believe to have committed or will commit criminal offenses.
HCSO investigators were told by the therapist that Robbins had fondled a 14 year old juvenile female while he was staying at her family’s residence in 2014.
Investigators had no name or address of the victim, only the admission from Robbins that he had fondled a juvenile female.
After weeks of interviewing numerous witnesses and employees of Dr. Robbins, the victim’s family was located and an investigation was initiated.
The victim did not have clear memory of the incident, because Robbins had drugged her beverage with Lorazepam, a powerful narcotic.
The juvenile victim has been able to recall more and more events of that night after intensive therapy sessions.
Crimes Against Children Investigators presented evidence of the case to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office and the charge of attempted indecency with a child was accepted
A Grand jury will review the evidence for any further charges on Robbins.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public’s help for any other victims of Robbins to please come forward and notify HCSO Investigators.

When things got tough for Ricky Carr back in December after being laid off from an engineering firm…he did what he knew best…he got creative.
Carr says, “went from there and went back into school trying to get back into the engineering field I could not find a job…I made a skirt instead.”
Carr created a dashiki skirt for his wife Stephanie Carr who’s also a Fort Bend county prosecutor. She was so proud she posted it on Facebook and then….
“He kind of put it out there just testing the waters and things…I said we really have something here,” says Stephanie.
Ricky and Stephanie have been working non-stop to keep up with the orders. They also decided to expand Ricky’s newly discovered clothing line called Seventy Seven by Ricky Carr. There are now 6 designs.
Stephanie is once again very proud of her husband whom she married while he was a mail clerk…He worked his way up to the engineering firm and now his own clothing line – selling like hot cakes.

Harris County Attorney Vince Ryan, along with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, won a court order on July 11th closing a La Porte Freeway gas station and convenience store because it violated a court order and allowed the sale of Kush, so-called synthetic marijuana.
Judge Alexandra Smoots-Hogan ordered Moon Mart, 10010 La Porte Freeway, closed immediately and to remain closed for one year. Defendants Moon Mart and Hazim H. Quadus were each directed to pay $50,000 in civil penalties and a fine of $10,000 each. The judge ordered the landowner, CJ Holdings, Inc. to terminate the lease with Moon Mart, change the locks on all doors, and to deny access to the space to Moon Mart, its owners, officers, and employees.
Following an investigation by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Task Force, the Offices of the Harris County Attorney and Attorney General obtained a temporary injunction against Moon Mart on April 20th prohibiting the store from selling synthetic marijuana or any other “illicit synthetic drug.” The court found the temporary injunction was violated on May 3rd and again on May 5th when Moon Mart offered to sell Kush to undercover officers with the HPD Narcotics Unit. After a search of the store, officers seized over 125 packets of synthetic marijuana.
Synthetic marijuana, also called “Kush,” is a designer drug, typically manufactured overseas, that is marketed as a “safe” and “legal” alternative to marijuana. Synthetic marijuana is not marijuana at all but a dried leafy substance that is sprayed with powerful, added-in hallucinogenic chemicals that are dangerous and highly addictive to the user. It is often marketed to children, and is the second most abused drug by high school students, after marijuana itself.
According to the lawsuit, narcotics officers from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, working undercover, purchased synthetic marijuana in packages labeled “Klimax.” The packages were hidden under the sales counter and the officers had to ask for it by name. The brightly colored packaging states that the product is “potpourri” without disclosing that the contents actually contain dangerous and illegal hallucinogenic chemicals.
“This office is committed to fighting the illegal marketing and sale of these powerful and dangerous drugs to our kids,” said County Attorney Ryan. “We will continue to send the message that businesses that choose to sell these substances will face the consequences, including shutting down their business if necessary.”
The filing is one of a series of civil actions taken by County Attorney Vince Ryan, in partnership with law enforcement and other agencies, using the state’s consumer protection laws to combat businesses that sell synthetic marijuana.
