Bandits break car windows during busy weekend at Chesterfield park

CHESTERFIELD, Va – Chesterfield County Police are investigating a string of daytime break-ins at a busy Chesterfield park over the weekend.  Officials said thieves busted windows to several cars at Harry Daniel Park on Ironbridge Road and stole items.

“The investigation indicates that five vehicles had windows broken out; items were taken from 4 of those vehicles. The window of another vehicle was damaged, but entry to the vehicle was not gained. The incidents occurred at some point between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.,” a Chesterfield Police spokesperson said.

On Saturdays, Harry Daniel Park is packed with families and kids playing youth sports like football, soccer, and softball.

“Saturday was super busy. Saturday all the parking lots were filled up. I think they had three different games going on,” said Natoya Johnson, who regularly rides her bike at the park and was there Saturday.  “You don’t get the sense that this is someplace

Houston Nonprofit Searches For Texans Who Vanished During Harvey

A man checks in at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston during Hurricane Harvey.

In the weeks since Hurricane Harvey’s record rainfall caused widespread flooding and destruction in Houston, the city has slowly but surely begun to recover. Streets in affected neighborhoods are lined with sodden carpet and furniture, while water is finally starting to drain from the last submerged streets. But even as life returns to normal for many, it’s clear Houston will take months – if not years – to return to its pre-Harvey state.

One local organization has focused its effort on what is often a forgotten aspect of a national disaster’s aftermath – missing persons. Texas Center for the Missing, a Houston nonprofit, is helping to track down the Texans who vanished during Harvey, a ferocious storm that killed more than 70 people.
