SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: HAPPILY EVER AFTER
When you hear a commotion outside your window early in the a.m., it’s likely either rodents or someone stealing your stuff. It was the latter for a homeowner in the 3600 block of Beverly Drive. Around 3 a.m. Nov. 4, said homeowner looked out his window to see two people driving off in his 2018 Ford Raptor. To add insult to injury, the thieves also rifled through the man’s 2014 Bentley FSP (nothing was reported stolen). However, this story does have a happy ending: Thanks to a phone application, the Raptor was found abandoned in the 2900 block of Carrizo Street in Dallas.
A weenie dog took a bite of a sanitation engineer’s leg around 11:55 a.m. while the dog was being walked in the 3200 block of St. Johns drive. The woman walking the Dachsund refused to stop when the worker asked if the dogs had their shots. She was never found again.
