Dallas Police Looking For Jewel Thieves

Yesterday, in the parking lot of the Hilton Anatole, a German jeweler was robbed at gunpoint of $700,000 worth of various gemstones. It was “very organized,” according to police. Could it be part of a pattern?

One week earlier, on November 28, a jeweler from Hong Kong was robbed – at gunpoint and at knifepoint – in the parking lot of the Hampton Inn on Composite Drive, near Walnut Hill Lane and Stemmons Freeway. Three men got away with $54,000 worth of gold-ring and earring mountings.

So, yes. Probably. You know what this means? Police are probably looking for the people behind the “Alphabet Crimes.” Now, then, if anyone needs me, I’ll be working the case with Taggart and Rosewood in my unorthodox but ultimately successful fashion. Cue the Seger and fetch me my Lions jacket.
