tigating a rash of burglaries of motor vehicles committed in the Schlitterbahn Waterpark park ing lots last week Reports show at least 11 bur glaries of motor vehicles occurred at or near the water parks park ing lots Police say all of the cars seem to have been broken into in the same manner The method they used hadnt been used around here said Capt Ray Douglas of the NBPD criminal investigation divi sion The suspects allegedly broke door handles and key holes on the drivers side of the cars Dou glas said it is possible more than one burglar was involved and that the group may have been from out of town Most of the cars in the reports were pickups vans and Subur bans and all belonged to outof town visitors Douglas said it was unusual to have so many in one given area He said burglars are likely to strike wherever there is a large accumulation of cars that will be sitting empty for several hours The more cars the more bur he said According to Douglas Schlit terbahn has stepped up its secu rity efforts this summer in the parking lots He added that his officers have been patrolling the area more often Officials at Schlitterbahn said patrols are conducted daily in the parking lot and a New BrauJifels police officer and Comal County Sheriffs deputy are on the premises According to Douglas people should use common sense when leaving their cars unattended All loose items should be stored in the trunk and cars should be locked In the cases last week the victims had left camcorders purs es jewelry and cameras in plain view He added that many visitors from larger cities do not think these types of incidents occur in smaller towns and become more relaxed about leaving items in their cars Nowadays you just cant do that even in New he said He added that it only takes approximately 30 seconds for a person to break into a car A good burglar can get in pret ty he said Douglas said the department is investigating some leads into these burglaries We will push all the buttons and do what we he said HeraldZeitung photo by JOHN HUSETH Bubble fun Justin Watson wows a few onlookers with a giant bubble during a party at the Dlttllnger Memorial Library

not wanted on river From staff reports A reader survey Should Alco hol be banned on the Guadalupe Riv published on page 4A in last weeks HeraldZeitung brought about a rousing response from the news papers readers according to Man aging Editor Mark Lyon The final vote count was taken Friday morning Lyon said and the results were 11 lin fever of banning alcohol on the Guadalupe River and five against The survey was only a part of our efforts to let readers become more involved with their newspa said Lyon And we are pleased with the number of people who did respond I suspect there are many more readers who feel strongly one way or another on this particular issue who did not respond and mere fore 111 remind our readers mat this is not scientific only a reader survey But it is interesting to see other points of views from people who see things very Lyon said the HeraldZeitung will include the survey on a weekly basis Sundays with a different question being featured each week Some of the responses from this weeks survey were as follows Alcohol is the source of most of the problems for law enforcement and landowners and taxpayers pay See this weeks question Page 4A the Our state and nation al parks do not allow alcohol and it has not reduced the number of fam ily visitors just those who are look ing for a place to get drunk and law less Bring back the People get too drunk and litter the river They use foul language and expose themselves to family mem Those who spoke in favor of alco hol on the river said Yes lets keep beer on the river but lets keep row dy drunken children off of the river I believe the recent crackdown is going to do wonders to keep things in check down The heavy days on the river weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day account for only 35 of 365 days or just over 9 of the whole year Many local businesses do 50 or more of their years business between these holidays This generates a large amount of tax revenue for the city and county Banning alcohol on the river would be a blow to the popu larity of the river and the whole area This would bring in less revenue to the city and fewer summer jobs for our Local family offers
