SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: THIEF TO STORE, CALL ME
A woman wearing a black wig with blonde tips stole a $150 generic evening purse by placing it on her shoulder as if it belonged to her. Before the shoplifter left Deno’s in Highland Park Village after 3:50 p.m. May 17, she dropped off a Versace belt for repairs and left a last name and her phone number.
Taken overnight before 8 a.m.: an insurance card from an unlocked 2015 BMW X5 parked at a home in the 3100 block of St. John’s Drive.
A woman in a black shirt and dark jeans visited Tory Burch at Highland Park Village at 1:44 p.m. and stuffed three $250 Kiri envelope clutch purses – one black, one blue, one yellow – into her big tan purse and left.
Did the man in the black sedan follow a Garland man’s 2010 Toyota Tundra from Bank of America to The UPS Store on Lemmon Avenue? Police think so. Surveillance video shows the burglar breaking a window a little before 2:05 p.m. and reaching into the back seat to take $2,603 in cash, plus checks and money bags. Dallas Bears, a nonprofit social and charitable organization for gay men, planned to use much of the cash while hosting the four-day Texas Bear Round-Up 22 Boot Camp beginning May 18 at Hyatt Regency Hotel - Downtown Dallas.
