The DPD Could Use Your Eyeballs

The Dallas Police Department, riding high off the arrests made from this YouTubed video, has posted two more -- including this freshly baked footage of four men burglarizing a residence in broad daylight. (It appears to have been shot by a neighbor, who, one would hope, was dialing 911 with the other hand.) But closer to Unfair Park HQ comes this footage taken from the 7-Eleven next door, at 2529 Oak Lawn Avenue, where some guys lifted a few packs of smokes from behind the counter at 1:20 in the a.m. a few weeks back. Alas, neither live up to DPD's earlier work. --Robert Wilonsky
