DALLAS, TX — It’s been over 50 days since nearly two dozen prisoners were released by mistake. The cases weren’t filed in time, and Dallas Police Department’s new computer system had a glitch.
Three of the inmates are back behind bars, but that leaves at least 20 more to go.
Out of those still ‘out and about,’ there are inmates wanted for: 1 burglary of a coin operated machine, 5 car burglaries, 2 house burglaries, 4 thefts, 2 for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, 1 forgery, 4 family violence crimes—3 of which that were felonies, and 1 robbery suspect.
We reached out to DPD and received no word concerning any re-arrests this week.
