SUGAR LAND, Texas – A suspect butt-dialed 911 while breaking into a Best Buy in Sugar Land, police said. 

Police were called around 3 a.m. by a cellphone, but no one was responding on the other end. When officials pinged the cellphone’s location, officers determined the call was coming from a Best Buy, police said. 

Shortly thereafter, the department received a burglary alarm from that same store, officials said. 

After arriving at the scene, police said the three burglars left the scene and led police on a 40-minute chase. 

The chase ended in northeast Houston when the men bailed out of the getaway truck and ran along the bayou on Los Angeles Street near the North Loop.

Officers used a helicopter and K-9 officers to locate two of the three men.

UPDATE: Grapevine woman’s refusal to confront burglar may have saved her life

A woman’s decision to call police instead of confront a car burglar may have helped save her life.

On the morning of April 24, a woman at Aura Four44 apartments walked into the parking garage and saw a man breaking into her car. She ran back into her apartment and called 911.

Grapevine Police arrived within minutes, and after noting several cars with broken windows, spotted two men matching the descriptions given by the victim. The men were crouched down between a car and wall. An officer yelled for them to stop, but both men started running. The officer chased them over a parking garage ledge onto the ground below. At that point, another officer flashed his emergency lights, and the two suspects split up.

One officer followed a suspect through shrubs and into a nearby creek. The officer pulled him out of the water, but the two struggled before he was in custody. At one point the suspect started reaching into his waistband, but the officer was able to pull his arm behind his back. Once the man was in handcuffs and searched, officers found a stolen pistol, loaded and ready to be fired, in his waistband. The other suspect was chased to a nearby street and also taken into custody.

As more officers arrived at the apartment complex, they observed nearly a dozen vehicles with windows smashed. They also found stolen property in a car that had also been reported stolen. Although these cars were in a locked parking garage, the owners had left bags behind the seat where thieves could see them.

Grapevine Police want to remind everyone to go beyond locking their cars, and to remove anything that could tempt a burglar. Even a bag with nothing of value could attract thieves. Police also praise the victim who called 911 and kept herself safe from what turned out to be armed suspects. The first suspect was in custody six minutes after the 911 call was made, thanks to the quick action of the officers involved.

Charges include burglary, evading, resisting arrest, theft of firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, criminal mischief, and an outstanding warrant.

Devieja Mitchell and Zavion Nunley (pictured below) were the two arrested.

Regal Row Street Racers Captured on Camera in Dallas

Screen Shot 2019-04-30 at 3.32.52 PM

At least once a week, part of a major Dallas roadway has been closing down for street racers. Hundreds of people, breaking the law for the thrill of it. Thursday night, it was all caught on camera and now Dallas Police say they’re working in overdrive to stop them. (Photo: NBCDFW)

Squealing tires, revved up engines — the sounds of street racing on Regal Row have been driving some crazy for years.

“They still doing they thing though. I don’t think it’s gonna stop,” said Ricky Ballard, an employee at nearby Allied Interiors.

New video, captured overnight, shows the cars and trucks in action near Irving Boulevard. Employees at Allied Interiors often get a front row seat.

“They take off right here and they go to the bridge. Once they get to the bridge, the first one to the bridge is the winner,” Ballard said.
