- Authorities say a teenager who burglarized
a Dallas police officer's apartment, and stole his service weapon and ammunition,
was apprehended the next day - after he lost his wallet as he fled.
Police reports say two witnesses chased 18-year-old
Adrian Jimmerson when he was seen Feb. 13 carrying a pillowcase full of items.
The suspect dropped the pillowcase as he jumped a fence, but his pants ripped
and his wallet fell to the ground. A school identification card was among the items authorities had to work with.
Jimmerson was arrested the next day.
As of Tuesday, he was being held at the Dallas County jail on a
charge of burglary of a habitation, with a bond of $10,000.
