At least seven police vehicles were seen pulling other vehicles over or patrolling on U.S. Highway 190/Interstate 14 in Killeen on Wednesday morning.
Three Killeen Police Department motorcycles, two state troopers and other police vehicles were seen around 8 a.m. in the westbound lanes of the highway between the Stan Schlueter Loop and Trimmier Road intersections.
Some vehicles were also seen pulled over.
Despite the concentration of police vehicles, officials said it was not part of a planned operation or “traffic detail” by police.
“No traffic detail was scheduled,” KPD Ofelia Miramontez said in an email. “Officers were out doing their job.”
Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Sgt. David Roberts said the troopers were there as “routine patrol.”
But why were at least seven police vehicles all within a 1-mile stretch of the highway, and all in the westbound lanes apparently pulling over vehicles?
“They just decided to work in that area at the same time,” Roberts said in an email.
