Texas Woman Faces Drug Charges After Taking 52-Foot Stolen Yacht on Joyride

A Texas woman faces drug possession charges after stealing a 52-foot yacht and taking it on a joyride in Galveston. According to a report by KPRC-TV, 45-year-old Renee Waguespack took the Jefferson Monticello “Loyalty” yacht for a ride on Monday. Galveston police told KPRC-TV that they received a call that the yacht had sailed away from where it was docked at 6130 Heards Lane shortly before noon. The United States Coast Guard and the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office assisted in locating the stolen boat. It was found roughly an hour later at a pier at 7509 Broadway, police said. Police told KPRC-TV they found Waguespack on board the yacht along with four grams of a controlled substance that was presumed to be methamphetamine and required further testing. Waguespack was charged with possession of a controlled substance as well as unlawful use of a motor vehicle, police told KPRC-TV. She is currently being held in the Galveston County Jail.

Suspect in 2 Fatal Shootings in Arizona is Arrested in Texas

A suspect in the fatal shootings of a young woman and teenage girl at a Casa Grande apartment complex has been arrested in Texas, according to authorities. Casa Grande police said 18-year-old Terrance Xavier Santistevan was taken into custody Saturday night in Pflugerville, which is 18 miles north of Austin, Texas. Police said Santistevan is facing two counts of first-degree murder. He’s being held in the Travis County jail awaiting extradition to Arizona. It was unclear Sunday if Santistevan has a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf. Authorities said 17-year-old Danielle Murrieta and 18-year-old Leslie Cota were found shot multiple times on April 24 with nearly 30 bullet casings recovered at the scene. The two were rushed to a hospital where they succumbed to their injuries. A possible motive for the shootings remains unclear, authorities said. Police said detectives developed leads in the case through tips given by community members. They’re still searching for Santistevan’s vehicle, which police said has been connected to the fatal shootings. Courtesy of Texas News – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth …



Beto O’Rourke Addresses Texas Property Tax Increases

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke was in Dallas Wednesday to discuss his plan to lower property taxes for Texans. O’Rourke has proposed making more housing accessible, paying for more public schooling (reducing the burden on homeowners), closing commercial property tax loopholes and expanding Medicaid in the state to reduce the property tax paid to local hospitals. Video from O’Rourke’s address will be added to this story Wednesday afternoon. In a statement prior to his address, O’Rourke said Texans are paying $20 billion more in property taxes since Gov. Greg Abbott took office. Abbott’s office released a statement Wednesday afternoon saying the governor has reduced taxes by $18 billion since taking office and that O’Rourke, as an El Paso City Councilman, twice voted for property tax increases in 2007 and 2010. This week, many North Texas homeowners have experienced sticker shock as they receive their property tax assessments from their local county appraisal offices. In some cases, homeowners are reporting market value increases of more than 50%; homestead exemptions can limit the increase in the appraised value to 10% annually.
