Officer Pete Villarreal had just taken a report of the apparent burglary of a car when he spotted a brown and beige Chevrolet Suburban. The Suburban had been mentioned in the report and three men in the vehicle had allegedly been lurking around parked cars, Guerrero said. Villarreal called for backup and stopped the vehicle, where he found items suspected of being stolen in six reported burglaries in the area. Arrested were Allen Eaton, 55; Clinton Lindsey, 44; and Narciso Castillo, 25, all of San Antonio. They were charged with burglary of a motor vehicle and each was held in custody in lieu of $10,000 bond, Guerrero said. All six burglaries were reported to have occurred Sunday. Villarreal stopped the vehicle on Hinman Drive and saw items reported stolen in plain view inside. Other police arriving on the scene observed other items reported stolen about the same time. Upon inventory of the Suburban, police found the items had allegedly been stolen and one of the men who had been arrested confessed, according to Villarreal and Guerrero.

Communist leaders decided today to consider even more changes in the government hierarchy, which has been revamped in the face of growing public upheaval and the exodus of tens of thousands of East Germans to the West. The Communist Party’s Central Committee set a party conference for Dec. 15-17. A party conference, a forum for making major changes in party policy, was last held in 1956. Tile official ADN news agency said die conference would discuss personnel changes in the 163-member Central Committee. The decision to consider overhauling the policy-setting committee comes on the heels of die mass resignations of the Politburo and the Cabinet. The remarkable moves at the top again were accompanied by a now-familiar sight in the streets: lens of thousands of people chanting for change as their leaders scramble to embrace — or at least give the appearance of embracing — major reforms.

Neil Craigmile, Precinct I commissioner, said making changes in Ute sheriff’s office to install the 911 system is not significant enough to advertise for bids because it would involve making changes in a wall and the installation of bullet-resistant glass, so he did not recommend advertisement. Commissioner Clyde Jacobs of Precinct 4 said he had some conceptual problems with the 911 system in that all calls would be received and routed at the sheriff’s office and the anticipated delay in completing die message transfer. “The purpose of 911 is to send what is needed as soon as possible,’’ Jacobs said. "A single point would be more economical,” he said, adding dial a dual reception system such as one at die police department and one at die Sheriff’s office could lead to confuses PHONES.

The increase in die Labor Department’s Producer Price Index was markedly smaller than die 0.9 percent jump in September but was still surprisingly high to many economists. The September and October advances followed rare monthly declines in July and August.

For die first IO months of the year, wholesale prices have been rising at an annual rate of 5.2 percent, compared with an increase of 4 percent for all of 1988.
