Good Information Leads to Arrest of Three Thieves

On October 28, 2015, Northwest Patrol Division Neighborhood Police Officer (NPO) Brian Nolff reported to the Sergeant Roger Rudloff, the evenings Northwest Patrol Division Deployment sergeant, that the Home Depot, locate at 6110 Lemmon Avenue had been experiencing a rash of nightly thefts by the same suspects.  The value of property that the suspects managed to take totaled in the thousands.  For the next two nights, Sgt. Rudloff and three of his Deployment officers, J. Eggleston,  E. Masonheimer, and T. Peterson conducted surveillance on the business. 

On October 30, 2015 the deployment officers observed the three suspects in the act of committing yet another theft at the location.  The three suspects were quickly arrested and taken into custody. 

The manager at Home Depot sent our Northwest officers the following message:

“Great thanks to you and your team for such a swift response.  We knew the Dallas Police Department would look into the situation, but this truly exceeded all of our expectations.  Again, on behalf of our store and our company, many thanks!”

Many thanks to Officer Nolff for bringing this information to the Northwest Division Deployment Unit, and to many thanks to the Northwest Deployment team for the expeditious response and resolution.

Great job done by all the officers involved!

Scammers Calling Citizens and Posing As Dallas Police Officers

Phone Scam

The Dallas Police Department is aware that the public is receiving phone calls from suspects who pose as Dallas Police Officers. Suspects accuse the citizen of missing a required court date or jury duty and demand the citizen obtain pre-paid cards and give the card number to the suspect or face immediate arrest.

These calls can be alarming and are meant to intimidate the citizen to the point that they don’t realize it is a scam until it’s too late.

If you get one of these calls, hang up:

  • The Dallas Police Department would never call or email you to demand payment for a fine you have never previously received a letter about.
  • The Dallas Police Department would never demand that you wire them money or pay using a specific prepaid card.
  • Never give out private information (your Social Security Number or account numbers) to any person who calls you.

If you are a victim of this crime, please contact the Dallas Police Department’s Financial Crimes Unit at (214) 671-3517
