Burglar helps himself to cash at Dallas BBQ restaurant
The Dallas Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify and locate a burglar suspected of robbing a barbecue joint as well as two other restaurants and a convenience store.
The first offense took place on January 19 at approximately 12:25 am, when an unknown black male suspect was caught on surveillance footage breaking into the Reed’s BBQ at 1811 S. Buckner Blvd. He broke a side window, entered and damaged some property while searching for cash. After helping himself to the money, he fled.
Police have now upgraded the suspect to a serial burglar, because investigative efforts have linked him to three other business burglaries that have taken place since January 19:
- January 21: Tortas Y Tarael Ranchita at 7023 Military Pkwy.
- January 27: Formosa at 5405 N. Jim Miller Rd.
- January 27: C Store at 9203 Bruton Rd.
