Keeping Dallas Safe – Officers and Community Come Together to Make Great Arrest

 

On November 16, 2017, at about 12:30 p.m., officers from South Central Patrol Division were flagged down at an apartment complex located at 330 East Camp Wisdom Road. A witness told officers that a Black male suspect asked the witness to come to where he was standing while exposing himself. The witness also let officers know the suspect was last seen running northbound through the apartment complex. The officers began searching for the suspect on foot. A second witness also flagged down officers and described the same male who was seen again exposing himself. Additional officers responded to the location to help search for the suspect. 

Officers were able to locate the suspect and ordered the suspect to stop. The suspect refused the officers’ orders and fled on foot into a wooded area. A K-9 element along with Air 1 were called to assist with the search for the suspect. The suspect was eventually located inside the apartment complex after a coordinated search and was taken into custody.

In the course of the preliminary investigation, it was discovered the suspect had forced entry into an apartment residence inside the complex where he was originally observed. In that offense, the resident was able to push the suspect out, and no one was injured.

The suspect Montrell White, a Black male 23 years old is being charged with two counts of Indecent Exposure a Misdemeanor B, Burglary of a Habitation Felony 2, and Evading Arrest and Detention on Foot Misdemeanor A, and two warrants out of Tarrant County for Indecent Exposure. This offense is documented on case number 261606-2017.

Thank you community members for coming forward  and providing useful information during the search for the suspect. To the South Central Officers, K-9 and Air 1, good job, and a great arrest.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday Safety Tips

The 2017 holiday season is upon us.  As we focus on family and great food, we want to give you a quick reminder to stay safe while you are out shopping for the holidays. The National Crime Prevention Council has great tips to help you shop safely while getting those great holiday bargains on Black Friday. Here are some savvy safety tips to remember:

Shopping in Stores

  • Do not buy more than you can carry.  Plan ahead by taking a friend with you or asking a store employee to help you carry your packages to the car.
  • Save all receipts.  Print and save all confirmations from your online purchases. Start a file folder to keep all receipts together and to help you verify credit card or bank statements as they come in.
  • Don’t flash the cash. Consider alternate options to pay for your merchandise, such as onetime or multi-use disposable credit cards or money orders, including at online stores.
  • Wait until asked by a cashier before taking out your credit card or checkbook. An enterprising thief would love to shoulder surf to get your account information.
  • Deter pickpockets.  Carry your purse close to your body or your wallet inside a coat or front trouser pocket.
  • Have your keys in hand when approaching your vehicle. Check the back seat and around the car before getting in.
  • Tell a security guard or store employee if you see an unattended bag or package. The same applies if you are using mass transit.
  • Do not leave packages visible in your car. Lock them in the trunk, or if possible, take them directly home.

Shopping With Small Children

  • If you are shopping with children, make a plan in case you are separated from each other.
  • Select a central meeting place.
  • Teach them to know they can ask mall personnel or store security employees if they need help.
  • Have them memorize or keep your cell phone number handy.

Shopping Online

  • Before surfing the Internet, secure your personal computers by updating your security software. Everyone’s computer should have anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-spam software, as well as a good firewall installed.
  • Keep your personal information private and your password secure. Do not respond to requests to “verify” your password or credit card information unless you initiated the contact. Legitimate businesses will not contact you in this manner.
  • Beware of “bargains” from companies with whom you are unfamiliar — if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
  • Use secure websites for purchases. Look for the icon of a locked padlock at the bottom of the screen or “https” in the URL address.
  • Shop with companies you know and trust. Check for background information if you plan to buy from a new or unfamiliar company.
  • To avoid purchasing counterfeit products, carefully examine the products you want to buy for signs of missing information (manufacturing information, warranty, product codes, etc.), broken or missing safety seals, different or incomplete packaging, and subtle or obvious changes to a company logo.
