Three individuals have been taken into custody following a burglary and subsequent police chase that spanned over 50 miles. The incident occurred when the suspects broke into a concession stand at a local ballpark in Fort Worth. The burglary was captured on surveillance footage, which was shared in real-time with the police by the league organizers.
Upon arrival at the scene, officers witnessed the suspects entering a white Ford Taurus, which then fled towards Alta Mesa Boulevard. The police attempted to stop the vehicle, but the suspects evaded them. The pursuit continued through Arlington, Grand Prairie, Irving, and Dallas before finally ending near Heartland, close to FM 741 and Interstate 20 in Kaufman County.
During the chase, the suspects discarded stolen items out of the vehicle’s window, including cash, snacks, and two cash registers. Authorities urge caution to anyone who comes across these items, advising them not to stop on highways but to report it to the police.
The University Little League, which serves children aged four to twelve, had recently faced challenges due to flooded fields and the hardships caused by the pandemic. However, they expressed gratitude towards the Fort Worth Police Department for their swift response.
The three individuals arrested in connection with the burglary and chase are 41-year-old Lila Salinas and 46-year-old Bobby Dewayne Williams. They have been charged with burglary and tampering with evidence. The pursuit concluded without incident, as the suspects pulled over to the side of the road after their vehicle experienced flat tires.
