New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 22, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas Page 8A — Herald-Zettung — Sunday, May 22, 2005Law enforcement personnel hit the road to support Crime Stoppers By Bon Maloney Staff Writer About 60 motorcycles rolled through the Hill County Saturday from New Braunfels and then back to town. They enjoyed the hundred-mile “poker run,” but that’s not why they were there. They were raising money for a local crime prevention program, New Braunfels/Comal County Crime Stoppers. Crime Stoppers is a telephone tip program where people who know something about crime or a particular criminal act but don’t want to deal with the police can still give the information. If they want, they can even get a reward of up to $1,000 paid for by fees assessed those convicted of crimes in this county. What Saturday's “Poker Run” did was raise money to pay for the administrative costs of the program, such as the telephone answering service and the other things needed to keep it operating. The annual poker run is Crime Stoppers’ only fundraiser. Motorcyclists Saturday left the New Braunfels Police Department and followed the Guadalupe River up to the Canyon Lake area. From there, they followed the Blanco River to San Marcos, where they went down into Guadalupe County to finish up at Saengerhalle outside New Braunfels. Teresa Nitschke, chairman of the Crime Stoppers board, said the event is an important one because it is the only means the board has to pay costs not funded by the courts. “We appreciate the support of the community and of the people who make this ride each year,” Nitschke said, adding that Granzin’s B-B-Q had helped with the food and Saengerhalle had donated the space for the gathering at the conclusion of the ride. Comal County Sheriff Bob Holder and New Braunfels Chief of Police Russ Johnson attended the gathering—but did not ride this year. Johnson is not a motorcyclist. Holder has a couple of Harley Davidsons, but had a speaking engagement Saturday morning that prevented his participation. Johnson, like Nitschke, said he wanted to thank the volunteers. He also said Crime Stoppers brought police officers good information to help solve crimes — often breaking cases through tips. “We receive a lot of information this way,” Johnson said. "It’s a valuable program.” Holder agreed. “It’s not only a benefit to law enforcement, but it benefits the entire community," Holder said. “It provides a valuable means to bring information to law enforcement and that benefits the community.” Comal County Sheriff’s Crime Prevention Officer, Corporal l im Kolbe, said a Crime Stoppers tip often provided information detectives could get no other way. "Crime Stoppers is a vital part of law enforcement,” Kolbe said. "As an investigator, you can only develop so much information on your own. Solving a crime is a lot like doing a jigsaw puzzle: You have to have the right pieces in the right place. Crime Stoppers gives us the missing pieces we often need to solve the puzzle. That’s the plainest way I can put it.” Kolbe said many times, detectives are forced to file away cases rather than solve them because there just isn’t enough information to go on and new cases come in every day. “The information just isn’t there. It’s frustrating for an investigator because, as police, we know the information is somewhere,” Kolbe said. “This program gives the public a way to provide it.” MANDY REARY/Herald-Zeitung From left, Pam Schult, secretary/treasurer of the Comal Chapter of Evo, and David Pratt ride into Saengerhalle Saturday after completing the Crime Stoppers Poker Run.
