Deer Park Police arrest two on burglary charge
The Deer Park Police Department have arrested two males in connection to at least eight burglaries of Deer Park businesses over the span of about a week. Both Paul Decarlis, 19, and Phillip Hollier, 22 of Deer Park were charged with one count of burglary of a building by the Harris County District Attorney's Office. Both of their bonds were set at $2,000 each.
Members of the Deer Park Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association recently toured the Darrington Prison Unit in Rosharon. While at Darrington, they learned about the everyday life of an inmate, the different levels of inmates, the crops and livestock on prison grounds and even the contraband smuggled into the prison and how some inmates bring into the unit.
Because it was right after the prison had finished serving of dinner and inmates were going for showers, at times, the CPA Alumni were standing or walking in the same area as inmates. When they were leaving, the group was asked to stop and step back to the wall as three correctional officers escorted a shackled and handcuffed inmate back to his sell from the infirmary. The alumni were told that he was the second-worst inmate jailed at Darrington and had committed murder.
