Dallas PD Dispatches Series of Videos Starring Thief Posing as Student, Using Kid as Diversion

I don't recall Dallas PD ever sending out a series of videos, but below is a brief trilogy dispatched by Senior Corporal Kevin Janse moments ago. Says DPD, the man seen in the first video is merely posing as a student at West Coast University's Dallas campus on Stemmons. He can be seen wandering the halls before breaking into a woman's room, lifting her wallet and stealing her credit card.

That event happened on December 20. That very same day, the man in the video can be seen using the credit card at NorthPark Center -- buying movie tickets, shopping at the AT&T store. Only this time, he has a child with him. Writes Janse: "It is believed the suspect used the child at several of the stores to divert attention away from him while he committed this theft and forgery." DPD says anyone with information should call 214-670-6233. In case you needed to be reminded that you are always being watched.
