Skulduggery of the week: Into The Woods
At 10:19 p.m., a thief stole a silver Lexus SUV while its owner was unloading groceries in the 3400 block of Gillon Avenue. The boyfriend of the vehicle’s owner began searching for it, eventually tracking it to where Gillon dead-ends at the Katy Trail, where the larcenist fled on foot into the woods. Another officer detained someone matching the suspect description near the intersection of Knox and Travis streets, but the Lexus owner couldn’t identify him. Nothing was stolen from inside the vehicle.
At 10:47 a.m., Todd K. Schmigel, 45, of Duncanville was arrested in the 4400 block of Beverly Drive on a charge of possession of marijuana.
At 11:45 p.m., Edward Lee Wilson, 36, of The Colony was arrested in the 3400 block of Drexel Drive on a public intoxication charge.
At 4:30 p.m., an officer was transporting a stray bulldog captured in the 3900 block of Potomac Avenue to a Dallas animal clinic for confinement in a white 2013 Dodge pickup when the dog bit several chunks out of the fiberglass camper top, as well as destroyed the wiring that powered the emergency lights.
