Dallas PD Kinda Knows Who Snatched Those Cheerleaders' Bags from DCC
It would appear from this tweet dispatched by the Dallas Police Department that the department has not, in fact, forgotten about those cheerleaders who had their bags stolen from the Dallas Convention Center on February 20. As a matter of fact, according to the DPD's bulletin, they now have a photo of two of the people suspected in the thefts -- that's them at right, using one of the stolen credit cards to purchase what appears to be gas (maybe?) at a 7-Eleven (possibly?), at least based on the photo of the car also included in the bulletin.
I've left messages with Det. Judith McGee, who's handling the case and is out today. Other Central investigators to whom I spoke aren't sure, but DPD spokesman Senior Corporal Kevin Janse thinks maybe he can find out where that picture was taken. We'll update accordingly.
Update at 12:49 p.m.: Nailed it. Janse responds:
Those pictures were taken from the 7-Eleven store at 8402 Harry Hines. Those pictures will also be taken to the convention center to be shown to all of the different department managers to see if they recognize them as being employees of the convention center.
