SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: Oops, It Happened Again
Locking your car and garage should always be on your “to-do” list; just ask this resident in the 4500 block of Emerson Avenue who failed to do both and had $4,100 in jewels stolen sometime between 2 and 2:45 p.m. Sept. 9 from his unlocked car in his open garage.

A man whose age was “unknown” was arrested around 11:40 p.m. for speeding in a construction zone and having an expired vehicle registration.
A large Rottweiler that’s all bark and no bite (so far, fingers crossed) has been the talk of the neighborhood in the 3300 block of Cornell Avenue. Apparently, two separate residents (on two separate occasions) have feared for their life when approached by the barking dog whose owner was nowhere in sight.

Two Giant bikes, valued at $400 each, were stolen from an apartment garage in the 5000 block of Holland Avenue sometime during the past month, the owner reported to police around 1:20 p.m. The owner was unsure of the exact date because he doesn’t park in the garage or ride the bikes often.
An 18-year-old Dallas man was arrested around 3 a.m. in the 3100 block of Drexel Drive for littering and public intoxication by a minor.
A 2007 gold Mercedes Benz SL 550 that was stolen (keyfob inside) around 9 a.m. Sept. 13, while a couple went for a walk in the 4800 block of Lakeside Drive, was recovered around 1:40 p.m.
