Attempt Burglary Arrest Leads to Arrest in Kaufman County Murder

On December 15, 2015 officers in the South Central Division responded to a Burglary in Progress call in the 7700 block of Concordia Lane. The homeowner was home alone, asleep on her couch when she was awakened by a knock on the front door. The first suspect, Jarvis Myron Kimble, who originally knocked, began to pound loudly on the door several times in order to gain entry. The second suspect, John Raymond Williams was observed by the homeowner on surveillance video moving the surveillance camera. The homeowner called 911 and stated that two unknown males were attempting break into her home.  The suspects heard the homeowner scream as they were pounding on the door and fled the location.

The homeowner was able to give the responding officers a good vehicle description which was put out over the police radio. Other officers, who were also responding to the location, observed the suspect vehicle and attempted to stop it. However, when the suspect’s vehicle came to a stop, they both ran from the vehicle in order to elude officers. Officers pursued the suspects and were able to take them both into custody. The suspects were interviewed by detectives of the South Central Investigative Unit and confessed that they were attempting to burglarize the home in the 7700 block of Concordia Lane.

During the investigation, it was also discovered that Raymond Williams had a warrant for Burglary of Habitation out of Cedar Hill Police and a warrant for Possession out of the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office.  Furthermore, it was also discovered that Jarvis Kimble had a warrant for Murder out of Kaufman County.  On November 28, 2015, Kimble shot a homeowner in the neck with a handgun while committing a Burglary of Habitation. The homeowner died at the scene.  Kaufman County detectives interviewed the suspect before he was transported to Lew Sterrett Jail by Dallas Police.  Jarvis Kimble has a bond of 1.5 million dollars.  

The hard work and dedication of the South Central Patrol Officers and Detectives led to the arrest of a murder suspect and a burglar. This was a great job done by all of the officers involved! Thank you for making Dallas safer!
