Tie for Crime Stoppers award  ByMondoMouNrlt  Ttie Herald-Zeitung  This year's Comal Crime SropptTs Investigator of the Year rate ended in a tie.  The triumphant lnvc‘sti-gators solved a case together. And they are so g(K)d, that they had solvc'd the crime and gotten a corifession even l>pfore the victim knew she was victimized.  "She expressed a lot of gratituck*," said one of this year's rtx ipients, Det. [uan Leyba of the Comal County Sheriff's Office. "She  thought she had just lost her wallet."  Leyba received a plaque recognizing his win Wi'dnesiJay miring a ceremony at Mamacita's Restaurant-Cantina in New Braunfels. He told how he and fellow Investigator of the Year Deputy Scott I ange received an anonymous text message through Crime Stoppers alerting them to a grt)Ui) of Canyon Ttigh Scnooi students involved in the crime.  One of the girls worked at a store wh(>re the vic-  tim had left her wallet, Leyba said. He said the tip-* ster said the girl spent the money from tw wallet and used credit cards for her own advantage. They got the girl to confes ancl then worked their way backward to discciver the vic-tim's identity, Leyba said.  He said they told the victim and she thanked them.  "Without Crime Stoppers and espec iaily the text program, we couldn't do the* what we've been doing," Leyba said.  The Investigator of the Year award is open to anyone who used the Crime Stoppers program to solve a case, said joshua Wright^ chairman of the Crime Stoppers board of directors. This is Lange^ seconrl year in a row winning the award. Last year, he won for cracking a case using a text tip as well.  Comal County Crime Stoppers, which began operating in 1*186, has c eared 61 7 offenses to date\ Wright said. He said 48 offenses have been  cleared using Crime* Stop per so far this year Anyone wanting to |)ro-vide an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers can do so by dialing (8U)) 620 TIPS (8477) or toll free (800) 640-8422, both numbers are answered 24 hours a  Or a tipster c an t(*xt the word "Comal" and their tip to ( RIMI S on a mobile phone.

The dismissal is fust the latc'sl development in the Horseshoe Tails saga, v\hich bc'gan in Decem-lier 200S when the landovvncT sought a state pc'rmil to rc'store the falls, which had become filled with flood debris.  According to publishc*d rc'[)orts, Ttorseshoe Falls had been the site ot numerous deaths over the ycMrs.  The [)ermit was grant-c'd in 2009 and the work was done, restoring the tails' drop-off.  After thc' rc'storation was accomplished, thc' Water Oriented Rcxrealion District of Comal (ounty asked the Texas Piirks and Wildlife Department to have the work undone to protect the tubing and <ayaking public.  But in August 2010, TIWD r(*[)orted that an engineer had examinc'd  LAURA McKENZIE I Herald-Zeitung  th(‘ site, did test runs with tubes and kayaks, and con(luded that the revamped falls did not create a dangerous situation - and that no further action from Parks and Wildlife would be necessary.  In December 2010, WORD approved tunciing for a study to take another l(K)k at Horseshoe* Falls and de'termine if any further safety work is nc‘ed-ed. That study is currently on hold due to low river flow s causc'd by extende*d drought, but will be* con-ductc'd oncc' river levels normalize, said WORT^ General Manager Mike Dussere.  Websites continue to warn river-goers ot the falls.  Anglerguide.com says the falls are' "never [)ass-able. Fiere, the river [plummets over a horseshoe-shaf)c'd ridge and crashes approximate'ly 6 to 8 feet downward. A strong undertow is created by the falls."  1692 Hwy. 46 South . 830-629-3775 cl ear s p r I n g s r es t a ura n t .com  " HOTEL & BREWING CO.
