The Return of the Lively Lane Prowler, Who, Turns Out, May Be a Serial Burglar
No doubt you recall the bald-headed, back-packing gent last seen peering into a Northwest Dallas home -- the so-called "Lively Lane Prowler," per Dallas PD's heads-up at the beginning of the month. Well, he's back in the sequel you see above, which was just dispatched by the police department:
Turns out, moments after the initial surveillance video was shot, the man went and burgled a neighbor's house. And now there's this: "a second home surveillance video of what is believed to be the same suspect committing a burglary in the 4200 block of Beechwood Lane on October 14, 2011 at about 4 a.m.," according to the DPD. The police report shows that on Friday night he got off with thousands in laptops, an iPad, a GPS device and two purses, found dumped and ditched in a nearby driveway.
And that may not be that: Detectives now say they believe this man may be responsible for "multiple burglary offenses in the Midway Road-Walnut Hill Lane area over the course of at least the last month." DPD says he's in his late 30s, probably, and about 5-foot-5 and 160 pounds. You know the guy, call Detective Strodtman at 214-670-6047.
