At around 9:30 a.m. on March 18, a pair of armed burglars broke into a home in the 10800 block of Pagewood Place. After finding the the resident’s housekeeper hidden in a closet, the burglars held guns to her head. They shoved the housekeeper in a different closet before fleeing in a gray Oldsmobile sedan with two rings with a combined value of $5,000 and two Macbooks with a combined value of $2,000. GPS tracking on the computers shows that they were taken to Grand Prairie.
At around 6 p.m. on March 18, a robber mugged a teenager in the parking lot of Tom Thumb in Preston Royal Village. The teen, who had parked just a few spaces from the store, was walking inside when the attacker approached her from behind, wrapping his arms around her while she screamed for help. The robber managed to steal the teen’s $300 iPhone 5, and $50 wallet containing a debit card, driver’s license, and school ID, fleeing in a gray 2005 sedan.
