Crime Alert – Burglary Suspect

Last night, DPD sent out the alert below regarding three residential burglaries believed to be connected. Although none of these happened within the LGNA Crime Watch area, they were nearby. The first incident was in the 61xx block of Palo Pinto, the second in the 51xx block of Ridgedale and the third (which happened yesterday morning) was in the 51xx block of Vanderbilt. The suspect is described as a light skinned, Latin male 28-30 years old, about 5’11”, 190lbs with short spiked hair. He was spotted driving a mid 90s black Infiniti 4-door.

I encourage you to be on the look-out for anyone matching his description. Just recently, a 911 caller reported a suspicious person driving up and down the street watching people on the sidewalk. The caller gave a thorough description including the license plate. As a result, an arrest was made of a suspect in the robberies that have occurred in the area. You can definately make a difference.
