Update @ 11/27 - DPD sent us the summary of the original incident report (the burglary in progress) and a follow-up regarding found property on a nearby property. The first report was not posted to the DPD website since it was mis-classified as an MIR - Minor Incident Report (eg on the same level as a traffic light not working, it's a piece of information but not very important).

Dallas Police officers, responding to a 'residential burglary in progress' call on the 5500 block of Belmont Avenue, arrested two Hispanic males on the property shortly after noon Saturday. Scanner traffic indicated they were jumping fences behind homes in the area when police arrived. Neighbors told BD they did not recognize the persons taken into custody and did not think they were living in the garage apartment behind the house.

The homeowners (an older couple) were not in the house at the time of the incident.
