Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Trooper Alexandrea Moroles was honored Thursday, March 1, as an Unsung Hero for her outstanding efforts in criminal investigations.

During a traffic stop in Lubbock County on Nov. 24, 2017, Trooper Moroles uncovered information that was reported to the Texas Joint Crime Information Center in Austin. A DPS criminal analyst was able to determine that the suspect was not in compliance as a registered sex offender.  DPS Special Agents continued the investigation, which led to the arrest of the suspect for violating sex registration requirements, which in this case was a second degree felony.  The investigation is ongoing.

Personnel from the Lubbock Police Department, Lubbock Emergency Medical Services, Lubbock Fire Rescue and Lubbock Sheriff’s Department were also honored at the local event sponsored by the Metropolitan Lubbock Rotary Club and Prosperity Bank.
