    “At 1:15 p.m. on Nov. 13, a burglar broke into a red 2009 Chrysler 300 at Miracle Mile and stole a Tom Ford purse, a Nancy Gonzalez purse, and two Prada purses with a combined value of $10,950.”

    Leaving merchandise of this value sitting in a car in broad daylight is mighty risky these days.

    “Due to a records system change in the records at the Dallas Police Department, Dallas reports are unavailable this week.”

    This has been the case for some time now. BubbleLife has the same issue re. reporting Dallas crime data.
