The information below was forwarded to TownSquareBuzz.com by a concerned reader via the Plano Police Department. The “Felony Lane Gang” crime ring is targeting several communities throughout Dallas Forth Worth.
We are asking for your assistance in stopping a crime occurring in our city, along with several cities across DFW. A criminal group known as “Felony Lane Gang” is working across DFW and also in our city. This group is targeting women who are leaving their purses in the car while they are running into locations for a short period of time.
Common locations being targeted are community pools, tennis centers, daycare facilities, salons, recreation and fitness centers, and a host of other locations where you might feel it better to leave your purse in your car rather than take it in.
PLEASE don’t leave your purse (or any other valuables) in your vehicle while it is unattended at ANY time. We have made several arrests and identified many that are responsible for these crimes but this group is very large and more of these thieves keep returning because the opportunity is still out there. Please pass the word to your family members, friends, and neighbors to ALWAYS take your purse with you when you leave your car unattended. Together we will fight, and beat, this crime occurring here.
