Reporting Officers got a call on a white Pontiac with a black man with a black beanie cap who was following people around in the vehicle. Reporting Officers found the vehicle in the 5600 block of Goodwin.

The Suspect, on seeing the police, pulled into the parking lot at location and exited the vehicle. Reporting Officers tried to stop the suspect and Arrested Person.

DPD busts burglary suspect in Vickery Place @ Thursday morning

DPD officers (uniform and covert), responding to a 911 call from a neighbor, caught a burglar in the act of breaking into a home at 5254 Miller @ Laneri at approximately 10am this Thursday morning.

Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.

Details are pending a police report being issued. We can only speculate that the presence of covert officers indicates an effort to catch someone responsible for recent burglaries in the area.

A DPD officer told BD - "This looks like a good catch for the neighborhood."


Update, 330pm - According to the DPD Offense Report (link) -

The Arrested Person entered complainant's garage by force and took listed property without complainant's permission. Arrested Person was apprehended in complainant's front yard by Arresting Officers after a brief foot chase.

He was transported to Central (Division) Investigative where he refused to be interviewed.

Complainant's rubber inner tube and workout wrist straps were found in Arrested Person's left front pocket. Comp's Giant bicycle was found standing halfway in the doorway of the garage which was inside.

DFR responds to strange powder on sidewalks

Dallas Fire/Rescue responded to an NBC (Nuclear/Biological/Chemical) threat report late Wednesday evening. Mounds of an unknown powder had been found on the sidewalks in front of three homes on a Lowest Greenville street.

After a 30-minute testing process, it was determined the powder was a harmless home product and removed.

BD is not disclosing the name of the street or the type of powder found.

At the same time, DPD was responding to a call regarding a dead body on the 5700 block of Kenwood. No more details were available at posting, but two DPD squad cars were still parked on the street at 1145pm.

NSA Hunt should atone on Yom Kippur for destroying Lowest Greenville (or, How are those sales reports looking?)

BD's not sure if there is some great karmic message in this, but Tuesday, September 25 marks the first anniversary of the Lowest Greenville rezoning plan going into force. It's also the start of Yom Kippur, the most holy of Jewish holidays, when Jews ask for atonement for all their sins.

For those wondering why we only do this atoning stuff one day a year instead of every Sunday, there was an efficiency study, schedules had to be checked, tickets had to be sold, a caterer had to be hired, you know how it is.

In the last year, only three new businesses - small restaurants - have moved in or are in the building out phase. Other than that, it's crickets every Friday night. Traffic is bad every rush hour, as the beer trucks block up the one lane street and their drivers tell you to piss off through a toothless smile. And god knows Walmart will just make things so much better for the local economy (back in Bentonville).

So now is a good time to look at bar tabs. Not the ones you pay, but how much the bars claim they are selling. One year out would be a good benchmark to see just how much better things are. Or are not. We will let you decide just how things are doing. But we do think Angela Hunt should be saying a Kol Nidre or two for the desolation she created here in just a few years. If this is her idea of a political swan song for her last term, it looks like all we got was feathers and bird shit.

BD can tell you, however, the bar owners cannot (but probably will) bitch about how we post their sales reports. The reports are generated from public records, and many of them subscribe to the same tracking service BD uses (you don't think we do the math by hand anymore, do you?) to watch their neighbors. Shana Tova, you all!
