While you were sleeping, Dallas Police officers in the Central Patrol Division were hard at work capturing a suspect in a stolen vehicle and two other suspects who were breaking into vehicles.
Last night, at about 9:00 p.m., a victim called police to report that her vehicle was stolen from the 2800 block of Cityplace West Boulevard. A few hours later, another Dallas Police officer spotted a vehicle driving in the 2400 block of N. Haskell Avenue without any headlights illuminated. The officer stopped the vehicle and discovered that it had recently been stolen from Cityplace West Boulevard. The juvenile suspect was transported to the Youth Division at Police Headquarters and the vehicle was returned to the victim.
Later on, at about 3:00 a.m., officers working in a covert capacity spotted two suspicious individuals in the 700 block of N. Glasgow Drive. The suspects were walking down the street pulling on the door handles of parked cars. Officers watched as the suspects opened an unlocked vehicle and took property from inside the vehicle. Uniformed officers arrived and arrested the suspects for Burglary of a Motor Vehicle. The officers were also able to return the stolen property to the victim.
These are just a couple of examples of the great work our officers are doing every day and night to keep our city safe. Thank you!
