Four people break into construction site of new Grapevine police building

Police are looking for four suspects who broke into the department’s new public safety building, which is under construction.

Police tweeted an appeal on Friday seeking the public’s help identifying the suspects:

About 1:50 a.m. on Tuesday, a police surveillance camera recorded four people breaking into the new Public Safety Building under construction at 1007 Ira E. Woods Avenue. Police said they are trying to identify those people now and hope someone will recognize them and share information with our detective.

Construction on the new building approved by voters in November 2013 began in the summer of last year and is expected to open in the spring of 2017. The building was financed through the sale of more than $68 million in general obligation bonds.

The multilevel facility will feature three different buildings on one campus totaling approximately 104,000 square feet. First responders will benefit from enhanced technology allowing them to better assist Grapevine citizens, supporters say.

The state-of-the-art public safety facility will be located on Dallas Road and will be home to the Police Department, Municipal Court, Fire Department Administration, Information Technology Department and Logistics.
