  • TxDOT works to reopen interchanges after ice shuts down parts of area highwaysTxDOT works to reopen interchanges after ice shuts down parts of area highways

    It has been an around-the-clock operation for crews with the Texas Department of Transportation after ice shut down several parts of the highway on Tuesday morning.TxDOT has continued to dispatch about 40-50 trucks in the field. The rain cleared later in the day and that allowed crews to catch up.Crews are now concentrating on reopening the section of highways and interstates that have been shut down for several hours.They are working with San Antonio police to reopen major interchanges including I-10 at 410, Highway 281 at Loop 1604 and I-10 at Loop 1604.Officials monitored cameras from all over the city and responded to calls from residents.TxDOT officials said the decision to shut down parts of the highway helped the community and city dodge major problems. "It will be much drier, we will work through the night applying the brine solution to keep them from icing up, (though we) don't anticipate that since it's dry," said Mario Jorge, TxDOT district engineer. "But as people go into the morning commute use caution, assume there's still ice on those bridges and drive slow."TxDOT officials said drivers still need to be cautious and aware of patchy ice on the roads.San Antonio city crews have spread out more than 120 tons of chat rock over city streets.

  • Here's how San Antonio-area schools decide whether to cancel classesHere's how San Antonio-area schools decide whether to cancel classes

    Every major school district in San Antonio closed their doors on Tuesday due to potentially hazardous icy weather conditions.After San Antonio's December snow day, districts shared what goes into the decision making process when deciding whether to cancel school.See what each district told KSAT when asked about the school cancelation process...Alamo Heights ISD: The district said safety is their main priority. Members of the school district check on road conditions themselves, then determine whether roads are safe. "We make these decisions using all resources available to us, with the knowledge that it is important for our parents to be at work in a safe and timely manner, as well," the district said in a statement.East Central ISD:"ECPD (East Central Police Department) and district officials monitor weather conditions throughout the night along with TxDOT, and our Transportation Department. The roads are driven by our police chief and transportation staff members in the early morning (3:30-4: 30 AM) and media outlets and local weather monitored. With the information gathered, our superintendent gets on a conference call at 4:30 AM with other surrounding district leadership and a determination is made as to whether the roads are safe, or not, with safety for all at the center of the discussion. Student safety is our top priority.Parents always have the right to make decisions in the best interest of their children at all times. Normally, we would rather cancel school completely during inclement conditions that warrant because a delay is hard for families and our campuses. Many of our parents work and if the streets are safe for travel, they will be expected to go to work. It would be difficult for them to leave their elementary aged children home and hope they catch the bus 2 hours later. "Harlandale ISD: "In the event of inclement weather, Harlandale ISD closely monitors updated weather forecasts and road conditions to make a decision regarding possible school closures or delays. Throughout the decision-making process, Harlandale ISD utilizes information from the Texas Department of Transportation to assess the safety conditions of the roads and is in direct contact with area police departments, our transportation department, and other area school districts. A decision is made in the best interest or our students and staff no later than 5 a.m. Parents and staff are notified through our social media pages, our website, our automated call system and through local media."Judson ISD: "We assess what the forecasted conditions are to be…whether inclement weather is expected to continue. Whether the moisture that has fallen is likely to stay on surfaces or evaporate and what morning low temperature will be. We also begin driving the roads in the area by 3:30 a.m. to see what road/bridge conditions are like and test roads through the time when drivers begin to come in for runs. Check to see if any road closures are in effect and their locations. We also consult other neighboring school districts as to what they are seeing as well."North East ISD:"The District is constantly monitoring weather/driving conditions in the event of a possible weather event. The District is also in contact with TxDOT, the Department of Transportation, along with SAPD and NEPD. In addition, District leaders, including the superintendent drive the roadways themselves, starting around 3:30 am. Then, the superintendent gathers information from across the District and confers with other area superintendents from large districts who have been doing the same. If roadways are safe, school will go on as planned. Media coverage is also monitored and on Friday morning, every media outlet had reporters driving on the roadways reporting roadway conditions were good and any issues were very isolated."Northside ISD: "Northside ISD makes decisions about the potential closing of schools due to inclement weather based on many factors including current road conditions, updated weather forecasts, and in consultation with other area school districts. In the majority of instances when the inclement weather could potentially impact the normal start to our school day, we feel it is best practice, given how quickly weather conditions can change, to make those decisions early in the morning when we have the most recent information at our disposal. Our standard practice is to utilize information from various sources, including the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the Northside ISD Police Department, the NISD Transportation Department, and others when assessing the safety conditions of roads."San Antonio ISD:"In making a decision related to potential severe weather, we closely monitor weather reports and road conditions, consulting with our District police and transportation departments. In many cases, such as last week where there are changing weather conditions, we wait until early morning to make the decision based on the latest information on road conditions and weather expectations. Our process includes checking with other districts and takes into consideration that many of our employees live in other areas of the city. We alerted parents the evening before that our current plans were to be open, but that any change to that would be communicated through the media, our website, social channels and our phone notification system."Somerset ISD: "It's all about safety. Safety on the roads for buses, for parents, for staff members. The decision is one that starts early in the morning with all of the Superintendents of districts in Bexar County. Road condition reports are gathered beginning around 3:00 AM. The Superintendents of the larger school districts in SA will make their call to cancel school or not. Somerset ISD then makes the determination based the safety of the roadways for our families and bus routes in our district, in addition to conditions in San Antonio. 80% of Somerset ISD employees reside in San Antonio. While it's not automatic, if the large districts in SA cancel class, Somerset ISD would probably do the same."South San ISD: "We take a number of things into consideration, first we send employees from our police department and transportation department to drive the roads as early as 3:30 am. Information concerning road conditions is communicated to the superintendent. In addition, Bexar County superintendents share information with each other concerning any delayed school starts or cancellations. Based on this information, the superintendent decides whether schools will be delayed in opening that day, be closed, or operate as usual. He communicates this information to the senior district staff and to our public information officer. All this occurs by 5:00 or 5:30 a.m. Our public information officer posts this information on our website as quickly as possible."Southwest ISD:"Four to six district officials monitor the weather throughout the night and in concert with other agencies; TxDOT, SWISD PD, SWISD Transportation Department, and the Superintendent's Office. The roads are driven by at least 4-5 staff members (including the Supt.) in the early morning (3:30-4:00 AM) and media outlets and local weather monitored. In conference and partnership with other surrounding district leadership, a determination is made to safe passage, or not. At the front of any decision is safe transportation and student safety."

  • Transguide Operations Center keeps close eye on traffic conditionsTransguide Operations Center keeps close eye on traffic conditions

    A crew of operators and engineers at the Transguide Operations Center were hard at work overnight and Tuesday monitoring the weather for freezing rain that could cause a problem on highways in San Antonio.Seven Transguide operators watched for accidents on 19 traffic cameras installed around the city and worked with law enforcement agencies on whether to close highways.A big part of the operators' job is to let law enforcement agencies know where the traffic accidents are located, so that police can respond to the crashes, close lanes and direct traffic.The decision to close highways and roads largely rests with the authorities on the ground, Texas Department of Transportation officials said.Upstairs from the operation floor, a team of three engineers works with another engineer off-site to monitor conditions and stay in constant communication with TxDOT crews on standby.For most of Tuesday, patrol trucks cruised the highways looking for ice patches. If they find a patch, one of 30 pump trucks in Bexar County sprayed the road with a special brine.TxDOT used 20,000 gallons of the 20-23 percent salt solution in preparation for Tuesday, and another 10,000 gallons were used Tuesday in Bexar County roads.TxDOT officials said the brine is their main weapon to combat ice. In dry weather, the brine lasts for about four to five days, but it needs to be monitored for reapplication during freezing weather.

  • Video shows abuse of hens at farm that provides eggs to Walmart, Publix, ARM saysVideo shows abuse of hens at farm that provides eggs to Walmart, Publix, ARM says

    The Animal Recovery Mission released video on Tuesday, which they said shows hens being abused and living in deplorable conditions at the Cal-Maine Egg Farm in Lake Wales.Cal-Maine is a public company and is the largest producer and marketer of shell eggs in the U.S., ARM officials stated in a news release.The company sells its eggs to numerous retailers around the country, including Walmart and Publix.ARM officials said an undercover investigator, who is a retired U.S. Army serviceman, captured surveillance footage of battery-caged hens over a two-month period.The hens were in overcrowded cages, where they were "trampled and strangled to death after becoming wedged in the cages," the news release stated.Some small cages contained up to 10 birds and "walls of cockroaches" were spotted within the cages, officials said. ARM officials said the hens were also living among dead chickens and many died regularly from dehydration, starvation, egg binding and illnesses that were contracted from living in the unsanitary conditions.The undercover investigator said he witnessed the hens being tortured by being kicked, punched, thrown and slammed on the ground. He said some hens were also beaten to death with sticks, pulled apart alive and were jammed in cage doors, causing them to be crushed to death.***WARNING: Video contains graphic footage that some may find disturbing to view*** "These brutal actions are being executed by both employees of the facility and managers alike and are clear violations of company codes of conducts and animal welfare policies required to be a humane certified business," the news release stated.ARM officials said since their investigation was brought forth to law enforcement authorities, a Cal-Maine manager, known as Matthew, was arrested on charges of animal cruelty.ARM officials said they are currently working with an investigator from the Polk County Sheriff's Office to assist in any way needed during their investigation.

  • BCSO uses reality based training scenarios to prepare patrol cadets for dangers of police workBCSO uses reality based training scenarios to prepare patrol cadets for dangers of police work

    Last week, Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar announced new training procedures for patrol deputies and detention officers.The new requirements come on the heels of the accidental death of a 6-year-old boy caught in the crossfire of a deputy involved shooting in December.KSAT reporter Tim Gerber was recently invited to attend an intense training session for a group of cadets hoping to become patrol deputies.The reality based training is designed to put the cadets in stressful situations to see how they use the skills they've learned.The cadets had spent the first 15 weeks of their 17 week training course learning a variety of tactics. On the day we observed the training, the cadets were putting all of their recently acquired knowledge to the test by running through a series of grueling scenarios.In the first scenario, the cadets are told to run across a parking lot to simulate a foot chase before engaging in a 60 second fist fight with the suspect. The fight continues inside where the cadet is put into an uncomfortable situation, on his back with the suspect on top of him.The suspect, played by a deputy, tries to wrestle away the cadet's gun and other tools on his utility belt as instructor Deputy George Barrera reminds them they are in a fight for their life."Do everything we've trained you to do to get him off of you," Barrera shouts. "We don't quit and we don't die here. He's going to take you away from your family if you give him the opportunity."The fight lasts another 60 seconds and is followed by the now drained cadet searching a room for the suspect and confronting him.When the cadet finds the armed suspect, he opens fire, stopping the threat. He must then explain to his instructors why he used deadly forceThe reality based training is designed to be as physically and mentally stressful as possible."We give them a stress inoculation in this course and that's what this is," Barrera said."We're going to introduce just a little bit of stress just to see how they operate and if we see that is not safe or if it is something that shouldn't have happened, we're going to correct it and then we're going to allow an opportunity for redemption because it's about training it into their muscle memory"What we don't want them to do is to quit and give up and then die because they quit and gave up. We have a saying that says that Deputies don't quit and we don't die. We want them to do what they have to do to get home to their families."For the cadets, the training scenarios are as close as they'll get to real life police work while still in the academy."Yes it is, it's not the movies it's the real deal," one cadet said. "It's pretty stressful, yes it is. It's mental. It's a lot of mental, a lot of physical, so we just got to be prepared for it out there for an every day life."In each scenario, the cadets must quickly decide whether or not to use deadly force, failure to do so could result in them or another person being injured or killed.Barrera hopes the scenarios leave a lasting impact on the cadets that they can look back on when they graduate to patrolling Bexar County."Law enforcement is 97 percent sheer paperwork and boredom and 3 percent sheer terror and we have to train them from one end of the spectrum to the other. We have to train them to be able to take a report and also to be on the side of the road or inside a house fighting for their life," Barrera said. "Every scenario that we put them in is a winnable scenario. What we teach and what we preach here at the academy is if you go home at the end of your shift, you've done your job. So that's the goal for every officer."

  • Ice snarls travel, causes multiple wrecks across San AntonioIce snarls travel, causes multiple wrecks across San Antonio

    A winter storm roared through San Antonio early Tuesday, producing icy conditions that brought travel across the city to a grinding halt.Several highway connector ramps and streets were closed due to dangerous driving conditions. Officials urged residents not to travel unless it was absolutely necessary.

Air travel was also affected, as some flights at San Antonio International Airport were canceled or delayed. VIA bus routes were operating on a normal schedule, but officials said some delays were expected. A winter storm warning remains in effect until 6 p.m. Tuesday. Tuesday morning, afternoonThe long-anticipated sub-freezing air arrived and began to mix with precipitation overnight. Scattered showers of freezing rain and sleet have been moving through most of South Texas for much of the morning.Expect areas of freezing rain and sleet to linger throughout the rest of the day, with the precipitation beginning to taper off by late afternoon.Freezing rain looks like regular rain, but freezes when it comes in contact with something. Frozen rain is what creates a glaze of ice on surface objects. Sleet pellets are little grains of ice that bouncing off surface objects.Tuesday eveningThe precipitation will begin diminishing throughout the afternoon and evening, but the potential for dangerous conditions will continue as temperatures will remain below the freezing mark on Tuesday and ice may remain on roads through Tuesday night.Wednesday MorningThe low temperature is expected to be near 20 degrees and is not expected to rise above freezing until late morning Wednesday, which may not allow the ice to thaw in all areas.------------------------------------------------------- Check out the latest satellite imaging tracking storms in the San Antonio area here: Click HERE for KSAT's interactive radar Click HERE for more from KSAT's Weather team, Your Weather Authority Continued Weather Coverage Stick with KSAT 12 News, your Weather Authority for the latest weather updates.

Reports say that Billeck is fighting bone cancer for the third time in less than four years.

Crew members from HFD Station 33 visited MD Anderson Cancer Center earlier this week to visit Damon and let him know the good news.…

  • SAPD unit that busts people selling stolen goods to become permanentSAPD unit that busts people selling stolen goods to become permanent

    Its success combating property crimes is getting a temporary unit a permanent spot on the San Antonio Police Department. Man's fencing operation ends in arrest, recovery of $20,000 worth of goods San Antonio police says its Fencing Interdiction Team, or FIT, will be grouped under the Repeat Offenders Program beginning in January. The team works with retailers to help target the people who buy and sell stolen goods for a profit, known as fences, bagging more than 100 arrests and seizing or recovering more than $600,000 worth of stolen goods in the process. The FIT began as a pilot program in late 2015, and became a crime initiative in 2017, said the unit's current supervisor, Sgt. Daniel Anders, who is also the property crimes supervisor at the Prue Road substation. Trio arrested after $15K in stolen merchandise recovered on West Side "Due to the continued success FIT had in the organized retail theft market, the Department will make it an ark under the Repeat Offender Program (ROP) unit starting in January 2018," the department's public information office wrote in an email to KSAT 12. "This will allow for even more dedication for the Department to continue to target these particular types of thieves. "It's definitely going to make that type of business and activity a lot harder," Anders said. Statistics provided by Anders show that from January 2016 until the beginning of December 2017, the unit made at least 120 arrests, executed 120 warrants, recovered $510,000 in stolen property and seized an additional $100,000 worth of stolen goods. Police catch up with alleged 'brand loyal' NW Side power tool crook The FIT aims to slow down theft at large around the city by targeting the fences, who provide an easy way for thieves to turn their ill-gotten goods into cash. The basic premise is simple enough. Professional shoplifters, known as "boosters," sell what they've stolen to a fence for cheap - perhaps 10 cents on the dollar. The fence then finds buyers, oftentimes online or on social media, and sells the stolen goods for a markup, but still less than the buyer would pay for it at the store. Many times, the boosters don't have the distribution network to turn their stolen goods into cash, Anders said, so they rely on the fence. If the fence isn't there to pay them, it lessens the incentive to steal. SAPD recovers $250,000 in stolen merchandise "You're taking away the fuel that's feeding the fire," Anders explained. To get it done, the team works hand-in-hand with retailers to develop intelligence, like identifying who the problem boosters are. From there, the team can target the lower-level thieves and start to work their way up the ladder in the fencing organization. Rather than stop at a low-level theft arrest, Anders said, investigators can infiltrate a scheme and go after the people higher up the food chain feeding that behavior. The team often uses undercover officers to set up sales with a fence, using products made to look like they have just been stolen - with anti-theft sensors or in its original packaging. Once they hit the threshold they think they need, the team will arrest the fence and debrief them to see how many layers there are to the organization. "Or they're part of a larger organization and they're sending that merchandise to another location either outside the county or outside the state who then is selling it on a global market," Anders said. The fences have good business acumen. They trade in everything from luxury goods such as purses to cigarettes to laundry detergent, which Anders said is known at a national level as "liquid gold." Police arrest 3 people accused of stealing $50,000 in merchandise "They know what's hot right now and what's selling on the market," Anders said. "I mean, it's the market that's driving it." But now, investigators think they have a good way to tackle the problem, and it will be on a permanent basis.

  • Traffic stop leads deputies to more than $100,000 in stolen propertyTraffic stop leads deputies to more than $100,000 in stolen property

    A stop by Kendall County sheriff's deputies in early December ended in the discovery of more than $100,000 of stolen property being recovered.So far, two people have been arrested but investigators are still looking for one woman they say is connected to the burglaries. Boerne: Boomtown or 'Gone Forever' The Sheriff's Office said they believe the trio hit two mini-storage facilities totaling over 40 units in Kendall County, burglarized two mini-storage units in Boerne, burglarized two vehicles in Boerne as well as homes in both Kendall and Bexar counties. On Dec. 10, deputies were patrolling the area of Shooting Club Road and saw a vehicle driving slowly through the area that matched the description of a vehicle that was possibly involved in storage unit burglaries from the night before. Deputies arrested Bobby Luckett for possession of marijuana and noticed what appeared to be stolen property. After getting a search warrant for a home in the 1200 block of FM 473 deputies found more than $100,000 in stolen property. Luckett was charged with burglary of a building and possession of marijuana. Deputies also arrested Antoinette Bibb and charged her with theft between $30,000 and $150,000 from the elderly. Is Chick-fil-A coming to Boerne? Authorities are still looking for Brittani Avera, who has a warrant out for her arrest for burglary of a building. Investigators said they have located the owners of most of the stolen property, but still have "a lot" that needs to be identified. Anyone with information is asked to call the Kendall County Sheriff's Office or Kendall County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-348-5323.
