GRAPEVINE, Texas – Grapevine Police identified a man accused of impersonating a police officer earlier this summer. 24-year-old Raimond Jett Nutz is charged with one count of Impersonate a Public Servant, a 3rd degree felony.

On June 26, 2018, at approximately 1:45 a.m., a woman reported being stopped on SH-26 after pulling out of a fast food drive-thru. She described the vehicle as an unmarked white Ford Crown Victoria with flashing red and blue lights on the dash. The woman reported the man was wearing a “baggy uniform” with no identifying marks or weapons.

The man told her she was pulled over for driving five miles over the speed limit, but she could avoid a ticket by paying him money. The woman doubted he was a real officer, and ultimately drove off and called Grapevine Police.

The detective investigating the case immediately sought surveillance video from the area, and looked for any other potential witnesses or similar reports of a man posing as an officer. He also questioned several businesses that hire security officers. One of those businesses confirmed a man was working security for them in Grapevine on June 26. After a review of evidence and a photo lineup with the victim, that man was positively identified as the suspect.

An arrest warrant was issued for Raimond Nutz and Crowley Police arrested him on the outstanding warrant on Wednesday, August 15. He was transported to the Tarrant County Jail and later released on a $2,500 bond.

Grapevine Police applaud the victim for trusting her instincts, getting out of this potentially dangerous situation, and immediately reporting the incident to police. Anyone who is stopped by an officer and feels something is wrong should call 911.

Grapevine PD asks for help identifying suspect

Wanna help us catch a suspect? We need to identify the man seen in the posted surveillance photo. He has multiple tattoos, including the word “Pride” on his left forearm, and was seen in Grapevine driving a red SUV with the front bumper and grille painted red.

This man is wanted in connection to a van and wallet theft from a Grapevine apartment complex back in May. He used the victim’s stolen credit card to withdraw cash from an ATM. The stolen van turned up a few days later. Anyone who has information about the suspect, or knows who he is, should contact Detective Perry at: 817.410.3275 or email sperry@grapevinetexas.gov.

Gas stations listed in the settlement included: 13 in Dallas, 12 in Fort Worth, four in Garland, two in Richardson, two in Haltom City, and stations in North Richland Hills, Addison, Denton, Lancaster, Grand Prairie and Irving.

SHOOTING INVESTIGATION AT GRAPEVINE APARTMENTS GRAPEVINE

NEWS RELEASE

Grapevine Police are investigating a shooting that sent two people to the hospital. Shortly after 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 3, officers responded to a shots fired call at the Village on the Creek Apartments, in the 3100 block of Mustang Drive. Four bullets were fired into the door of an apartment unit, but nobody was hurt.

Approximately 30 minutes later, a shooting was reported at the Encore Apartments, in the 3000 block of Mustang Drive. The suspect fired several shots through the closed door of an apartment. Two people inside the apartment, a man and woman, were hit by multiple bullets. Both were transported to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Grapevine. The man’s injuries are considered stable, while the woman underwent surgery. Two others in the apartment were not hurt.

Police believe the two incidents may be related and are talking with several witnesses from the apartments. According to their preliminary investigation, it is believed the suspect knew the victims and specifically targeted their apartments. Detectives remain on scene, and will pursue all possible leads in this case. No arrests have been made at this time. The names of the victims have not been released.

Police: 9 unrelated threats before Santa Fe school shooting

SANTA FE, Texas (AP) — Police records show a Houston-area high school received nine threats in the months leading up to a mass shooting that killed 10 people.

The police chief for the Santa Fe Independent School District wouldn’t detail the threats but says none was related to the May 18 shooting that killed eight students and two substitute teachers at Santa Fe High School.

Records obtained by the Houston Chronicle show that 114 incidents were handled by district police in 2018 before the shooting. Nine were under columns that described the received calls as “threats.” One came nine days before the shootings.

Other incidents carried such labels as thefts, medical issues, disturbances and traffic accidents.

A 17-year-old student with no record of previous trouble is jailed and charged with capital murder in the shooting.
