According to police, they believe he is responsible for eight thefts in Farmers Branch and two in Dallas. He is not yet being identified because more suspects may be involved.
“I don’t necessarily think it was luck. I do believe it was good police work. Having video security at the scene of the first theft provided officers with the description the needed to be able to go out there and locate this individual,” said Officer Steven Rutherford.
