A San Angelo officer is being looked into after a resident reported he discouraged her from calling police for help.

According to the complaint, the officer allegedly advised the woman against contacting officials in future after a suspicious substance was found in her front yard.

Lieutenent Mike Hernandez with the San Angelo Police Department made clear that is not the case.

"The complaint was the officer adviced the complainant that  we don't take those types of calls, that we can destroy such evidence on their own and that's not what we recommend," stated Hernandez.

The incident is being handled and Hernandez could not stress enough that safety is a priority for the SAPD.

"I had said before that we want to ensure that we are the experts and we don't want anybody to be harmed. So, we just want (residents) to be safe," continued Hernandez.

The substance was picked up and tagged. It is currently being tested. As for the officer, his immediate supervisor Lieutenant Frank Carter, Chief Vasquez, and professional standards are aware and looking into the incident.
