Dominique Thornton, the First Named Katy Trail Robbery Suspect, Has Been Arrested

Word came early Saturday afternoon that the Dallas Police Department had identified veteran shit disturber Dominique Trevun Thornton as one of the suspects in a string of armed robberies along the Katy Trail. And it wasn't 24 hours later before they announced that 23-year-old Thornton was in custody -- reportedly after getting popped for speeding in Grand Prairie.

Thornton has amassed a tidy little rap sheet in his brief time as an adult, for crimes including burglary, evading arrest and criminal trespassing, and he pleaded guilty just last fall for interference with a public servant.
