SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: COWBOYS FAN ESCAPES WITH TOOLS
Stolen at 10:57 a.m. July 22 from a contractor’s 2009 Chevrolet Express van at a construction site in Highland Park Village: $870 in tools. A witness saw a bald, tattooed man in a Dallas Cowboys jersey and saggy jeans hop into a 2010 Chevrolet Escape with the loot. The Escape, driven by a female accomplice, sped off, turning south on Preston Road.
Missing: a $250 Longchamp wallet containing $300 cash, 13 credit and debit cards, a house key, and identification. A Dallas woman left it around 1 p.m. in a Whole Foods shopping cart. She returned 20 minutes later to the supermarket on Lomo Alto Drive and then again the next day, but store employees said they had not seen the wallet.
