Keeping Dallas Safe: Northeast Officers Arrest Suspects for BMV

On Friday, August 5, 2016 at approximately 6:00 p.m., the Northeast Division Deployment Unit was in the White Rock Lake area for a BMV (Burglary of a Motor Vehicle) initiative. The covert officers observed a known BMV suspect vehicle enter the parking lot in the 8000 block of E. Mockingbird Lane.  The officers observed a Black male suspect exit the suspect vehicle, break the window of the victim’s vehicle, and remove property.  The suspects then fled onto Mockingbird Lane, at which time the covert officers called for cover from uniformed officers and the Air 1 Helicopter. Uniformed elements tried to stop the suspect vehicle, but the vehicle evaded the officers. The officers spotted the suspects a short time later near North West Highway and Shady Brook.  The suspects evaded from the officers again. Air 1 then followed the suspect vehicle all the way to Metropolitan and Colonial in South Dallas where the suspects exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Officers from the Northeast and Southeast Divisions apprehended the suspects a short time later.

The officers found property of ten different victims in the suspect vehicle.  All of the BMV offenses occurred on August 5, 2016 between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.  All of the victim’s were contacted and recovered their stolen property.   

The suspects have been identified as Osborne, Anthony B/M/32 and McMillan, Joshua B/M/22. They have been charged with Burglary of a Vehicle, Evading Arrest, and Fraudulent Use or Possession of Identifying Information. 

Thanks to the great work of the Northeast Deployment Unit, Northeast Patrol officers, Southeast Patrol officers, 2.0 officers, and Air 1 these suspects are off the street and the victims were able to recover their property. Excellent work!
