For such a short, pleasant-looking street, Chapel Creek Drive -- off Webb Chapel Road, just south of Walnut Hill Lane -- has a fairly lengthy list of criminal activity, according to this morning's Daily Crime Report. Since Thursday alone, the Dallas police have been called to six different addresses along Chapel Creek -- for everything from criminal trespassing to someone stealing a car (with the keys left in the ignition in broad daylight) to an aggravated robbery (that's with a gun, of course) to the discovery of items stolen from San Antonio during "multiple robberies." Also: On Friday, someone living on Chapel Creek Drive went to school but never came home -- it's currently listed as "runaway." Probably never a good sign when you live smack in between two cemeteries: the Calvary Hill and the Crown Hill Memorial Park -- where, of course, Bonnie Parker's buried. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
