Quick Thinking Witness Helps Catch Thief!

On April 2, 2014, a contractor working at a vacant building located at 9999 W. Technology Boulevard observed an unfamiliar individual walk out of the rear of the business carrying property and then place it in the bed of his Ford truck.

A contractor approached this individual and asked him some basic questions before the suspect ended the conversation and fled in a hurry. Fortunately, the contractor was able to get the license plate and pass it on to the responding officers that work out of the Northwest Patrol Division. Officers went to the vehicle registration address and located the suspect. The contractor was able to identity two ladders belonging to the business fall out of the suspect’s truck when he quickly sped away from the scene of the crime.

Thanks to a quick thinking contractor, officers were able to place this thief in jail and charge him with Burglary of a Building, which is a State Jail Felony. The offense is documented on case #77294-B>

Youth Sergeant Recognizes North Central Troops

ScreenHunter_26 Mar. 20 16.07

North Central Troops,

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you all for your quick response and continued presence with regards to the search for Ms. Kazuko Morris. I know that many of you stayed well past your tour of duty.

The reporting person was confident to a fault that her mother could not be more than a half a mile from her residence, but all of you responded to business areas outside of this search area, and responded quickly to every tip that was called in to 911 or Youth Ops. Ultimately the Comp was found miles from the residence at a Walmart.

Please continue to notify Youth Ops asap when you suspect that you will be initiating a Critical Missing investigation so that we can bring all resources to the investigation. If you ever have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 214-671-4268

Sgt. Tom Illingworth, #8631
Youth Ops, 3rd Watch

Update: Wanted Person for Aggravated Assault on a Public Servant was Arrested


For the past few days, the Dallas Police Department has been attempting to locate and arrest Andonal Harvey B/M 1-17-1979, who is a suspect with a history of breaking into vehicles and who was also wanted for felony theft.

Officers located Harvey at a gas station in Dallas on March 12th.  When uniformed officers attempted to arrest him, Harvey sped away striking one of the officers. Thankfully, the officer didn’t sustain any serious injuries but police secured a warrant for his arrest for aggravated assault on a public servant.

On March 14th, officers working in the Dallas Police Department’s Metro Unit learned of an address in Arlington where Harvey might be staying. After several hours of surveillance at the location, officers saw Harvey drive away. Covert officers followed Harvey to a motel in the 12000 block of North Central Expressway where they called in the SWAT team.  After a short standoff, Harvey was taken into custody.

Several units within the Dallas Police Department worked in concert to make sure Harvey was arrested safely, including the following: F.A.S.T. Team, Metro Unit, Helicopter Unit, Canine Squad, SWAT and South Central Deployment. Because of their hard work, Harvey is once again safely behind bars.


On March 12, 2014 at approximately 4:15 pm, at 3100 W. Camp Wisdom Road, the below picture suspect Andonal Harvery used his vehicle as a weapon and struck the victim, a Dallas Police Officer in full uniform as the officer was attempted to arrest him on a felony warrant.   The suspect then fled the location in  the pictured stolen vehicle, which is a 2013 Dodge Journey with Texas license plate of BRB8631.
