Keeping a neighbor safe

For one Yorktown resident, “To serve and to protect” never meant more than it does today.

Joy Machost moved from the rural country 12 years ago to live inside the city limits to settle down with her husband, Roland (d. Nov. 1, 2014). They were married 40 years.

Joy said, “After he passed away, a lot of stuff started happening. I broke my hip on April 18 and stayed at a nursing home for 21 days. While I was in the nursing home, someone broke into my house. I suspect {...}.”

'All in a matter of 30 seconds.'

An unfortunate occurrence affected the lives of an elderly couple, a Yorktown police officer, a home health caretaker and the owners of a 4.5 year old male brindle boxer, all in a matter of 30 seconds.

It all started on the morning of May 24, approximately 9 a.m. One male brindle boxer named Jack and a sealed brindle boxer named Mitzie (owned by Shane and Courtney Kulik) were reported running around loose on Ninth and Gohlke Streets. When Lt. Vicente Flores arrived, he followed the pair to the residence of Herbert and Joy Krause on the corner of Tenth and Gohlke Streets. Rocky, a brown chocolate smooth coat Chihuahua, was chained in the front of the residence.
