At least four theft victims, who live in two Richardson senior living centers, have been hit by the trio. Richardson Police say last month the three used a clever but sinister plot to get inside the rooms of residents and rip them off. Victims have lost jewelry, cash and credit cards plus personal information has been stolen.

Sgt. Kevin Perlich says the woman entered both The Gardens and The Wellington senior living centers, where she passed herself off as someone’s daughter.

Blue-green algae advisory lifted at Lake Texoma.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Tulsa District

TULSA- Based on recent test results, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District has lifted the lake-wide blue-green algae advisory at Lake Texoma.


Samples collected by the Grayson County Health Department on April 16, indicated that blue-green algae cell counts have fallen below the advisory threshold of 20,000 cells per milliliter of water established by the World Health Organization’s guidelines for recreational waters. The data was provided to the Tulsa District by the Grayson County Health Department.

Because of jurisdictional limitations, GCHD was unable to collect samples at Sheppard Annex, Grayson County, Texas; Johnson Creek, Bryan County, Oklahoma; Lakeside public use area, Bryan County, Oklahoma; and Little Glasses Creek, Marshall County, Oklahoma.
However, based on continued water and hydropower releases, recent rainfall and the significant drop in cell counts at the locations tested, the Corps of Engineers has lifted the advisory.

“The drop between March and April at Treasure Island was 20 fold,” said Dr. Tony Clyde, limnologist for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District. “I would anticipate that a 10 to 20 fold decrease has occurred in the upper reaches of the Red and Washita River arms based upon the current release schedule, recent rainfall, reservoir elevation, and the subsidence of the bloom in Lebanon Pool and Brier Creek.”

The data breakdown includes:

Little Mineral Arm- 3,821 cells/ml
Eisenhower State Park Beach- 1,103 cells/ml
Treasure Island- 1,211 cells/ml
UNT-17/Main Lake Body- 1,313 cells/ml
