Journalists on the east side of the Metroplex have been busy the past couple of says following the arrests of two people suspected in a series of of violent "driveway robberies" in Dallas.
Here's the Dallas Police Department's news release posted on the DPD Facebook page:
"On February 20, 2014, officers assigned to the department’s METRO Task Force were working an approved off-duty neighborhood patrol job in full police uniform and marked police car. The officers were patrolling on W. Davis Street when a robbery call came out in the 1100 block of Montclair Avenue, which was near their location. The officers monitored the police radio as it gave out suspects descriptions and that suspects just robbed the victim of his wallet.
Shortly thereafter, the officers observed a vehicle directly in front of them matching the description in the BOLO bulletin of past driveway robberies. After observing a wallet being thrown from the vehicle, officers conducted a traffic stop in the 2800 block of W. Davis Street. The male and female occupants matched the description of the suspects who had been committing the driveway robberies. The officers discovered a ski mask, knife, and other evidence located in the vehicle that also linked the suspects to the various robberies. The suspects were interviewed by Robbery detectives and subsequently taken into custody. Suspects, Charles Hunt (above left) and Santana Andrews, (above right) were charged with the Aggravated Robbery that occurred on Montclair Avenue and is expected to be charged with multiple more robberies."
