If you witness a crime, here’s what to do
Law enforcement units in Dallas chased several bank robbery suspects into Tarrant County and back into Dallas County on Thursday morning, according to officials.
After about a 15 minute chase, three people — two men and a woman — were taken into custody after the driver stopped near a field in a residential area on Barlow Avenue in Oak Cliff, according to scanner traffic and a live video feed of the chase and arrests.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation said agents were watching the three suspects, known as the “Halo Bandits” after an alleged robbery of a bank in Hurst happened just before 10 a.m. Thursday. Dallas officers spotted the suspect’s car and the chase began.
At one point, the hood of the driver’s gray sedan blew up and covered the windshield. As the driver exited Interstate 30, the back tire blew.
One suspect was arrested at the bank, the FBI said.
“These four individuals are considered a bank crew and they are suspected in multiple robberies throughout the North Texas area,” Melina Urbina said. “The FBI bank robbery task force dubbed this crew the Halo Bandits and they have been on our radar for some time.”
No one was injured in Thursday’s robbery. Urbina said the FBI is not releasing how many robberies the group is accused of because the investigation is still ongoing.
