The PIO was out of town for a vacation, so FINALLY here are some of the many calls and incidents we responded to for the weeks of September 23rd through October 6th, 2022:
–In a road rage incident, a suspect driving a Tesla cut off another driver and then slowed down and yelled and cussed at him for “driving a gas powered vehicle.”
–An officer conducted a business check at 500 North Kimball and found a vehicle occupied and running behind the business. The driver was arrested for DWI Open Container and we recovered two stolen handguns.
–In a jugging offense, a victim left the Bank of America in Colleyville and stopped in Southlake to get some sushi. When they came back to their car, the window was shattered and the $3,900 was stolen from the center console.
–Officers were dispatched to a fraud report call where the victim stated that a man called them from a Dallas PD phone number and said they needed to pay money or they would be detained from their children. The victim transferred $20,000 to the suspect via ApplePay. We contacted Dallas PD who stated they had not contacted the victim. We are investigating this offense for Impersonating a Public Servant.

On September 29th at around 8:30pm, officers were dispatched to a reckless driver call around 500 East Southlake Boulevard. The caller said a Lexus was driving westbound all over the roadway, driving up on curbs, and almost running into other cars. The Lexus turned northbound on North Peytonville and crashed into a ditch.
