2 July 12, 2017 ����� | C������� �� C������ C����� �� QPD Chamber offers Q150 T-shirts online QPD recovers stolen bike The Quartzsite Police Department Offi cers were able to recover a stolen Tricycle for Mary (in Photo with Offi cer Power.) Chief William Ponce said, "Excellent team work enabled the Department to recover the stolen item with an arrest very quickly. It's always a pleasure assisting the citizens of Quartzsite." Letter is attached: Dear Chief Ponce, One the evening of June 9, 2017 I had the honor of meeting Offi cers Hovdal and Verdugo when they responded to my request to report the theft of my brand new tricycle. They both were out- standing int heir treatment of me. They took the matter seriously and showed me a great deal of respect and understanding. Also, they were both good humored as well as good looking. I appre- ciate all things. Then two days later, I was equally pleased to meet Lt. Ewald and Offi cer Powell. Also very good humored and good looking. They had lo- cated my brand new bike, made an arrest, and received many thanks from me. All four offi cers represent a truly fi ne police de- partment here in Quartzsite! They had to have worked diligently and cooperatively to fi nd my bike for me. Good communications and detec- tive work is a joy to behold. Even if the outcome had not turned in my favor, it was a pleasure to meet those offi cers and know what excellent po- lice work takes place in our city. I am the daughter of a retired Chicago police offi cer, and also had an uncle and grandfather who were detectives. I am, of course very proud of this, and know that my appreciation can go a long way. Perhaps this letter will go in each of those offi cers fi le. So thank you, Chief Ponce. I will look forward to your Neighborhood Watch meetings. Most sincerely, Mary Ryan The Quartzsite Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism teamed up with to offer the community Quartzsite 150th Anniversary T-shirts for only $20 each.
