Silver City police officers were dispatched to the 3000 block of Pinos Altos Road, at approximately 12:31 p.m. on Thursday, July 18, 2019, in reference to a physical domestic complaint. When officers arrived on scene contact was made with a TLC employee who was working construction on Pinos Altos Road. The employee told officers that a ‘half-naked’ adult female ran toward them, and two males, later identified as Kevin Duran, 33, of Silver City, and Naven Rosales, 35, also of Silver City, were running after her. The employee, according to an incident report, told officers he and a co-worker put the female in one of their work vehicles.

These results go along with the photos by Frank Kenney taken in Luna on July 20, 2019

At its July 23, 2019 meeting, the Silver City Town Council approved a resolution, authorizing a contract between the town and Universal Waste Systems of California for the collection, transport, and disposal of solid waste and recyclables. Brown told council it has been difficult of late to find qualified CDL drivers and mechanics to keep the town’s vehicles and equipment maintained, and having the company take over the trash collection and transport responsibility, would relieve the town of that burden.

Representatives from the company, together with Town Manager Alex Brown, presented the proposal to council.
