Following the conviction of William Gardner III for the Winters murder of Leslie Pinkston, the Winters Police have finally had a chance to evaluate their performances during the chain of events throughout the case. At the Dec. 2 city council meeting, Chief of Police Sergio Gutierrez gave a detailed presentation of the hard work and dedication put forth by local law enforcement officers and the supporting agencies.
“Many details of the who-what-where-why-things have been explained by the news media, however, unlike CSI television shows that are able to solve a case in one hour, there is a lot more behind the scenes work that goes into catching a murder suspect,” explained Gutierrez.
“The staff are the backbone of our organization,” he continued, “Larger agencies can say their patrol is their backbone, that is supplemented by their investigations department; But in a small town like ours, our officers are our investigation officers, they do interviews, handle evidence, and so on.”
“It’s a ‘you catch and you clean’um’ way of working around here, and the bigger the fish the more people you need to get it clean,” the chief said, “Our officers handle these cases from beginning to end based on what we invest in their skills. We have a lot of basic training, but we also send our staff to many specialized trainings.”. . . .

Jacob Lowrie, the Winters High School all-time yardage leader and scoring leader, has been selected to play in the Blue-Grey All American Bowl all star game. On Dec. 14, Lowrie will be playing football at AT&T Stadium where the Dallas Cowboys play along with 44 other members of the West squad.
Lowrie will participate in practice on Dec. 12, and then again on Saturday, Dec. 13, attend a media night on Saturday night and then play on Sunday, Dec. 14, at 7 p.m. The game will be carried by the new Impact Football Network and streamed across the country.
“It feels great to be selected for such a big game,” said Lowrie. “I am looking forward to playing with high caliber athletes. It will be an eye opening experience that will give me an idea of what the next level will be like.”
Coach Daniel Ward felt the same way about the opportunity that Lowrie did. . . .
