Updated: Lewisville Police Release Name of Carjacker Shot Wednesday - Previously tried "Suicide by Cop"

Local News, Notes and Events
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2014/11/28 19:40:00 (1335 reads)

Open in new windowThe Lewisville Texan Journal has learned that the identity of the carjacker who was shot by police Wednesday in Lewisville is Davis Jay Thomas, 22, of Garland. This photo is from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, taken in June of last year when he was incarcerated.

Thomas's next-of-kin were notified of his death Wednesday evening.


Update 11/28/2014 - 9:42 p.m.: Prior History of Violent Interaction with Police
"KILL ME DO IT, PLEASE DO, DO ME THE FAVOR" - This was a quote from Thomas from a September, 2012 police report of a traffic stop in Garland where Thomas had given police the impression he was reaching for a weapon, causing the officers to draw their guns on him. The traffic stop had begun after Thomas turned in front of a police officer at an intersection and accelerated past him at a high rate of speed on a residential street. Once stopped, Thomas presented the police with a false ID, and acted nervous, fiddling around and reaching for things. Thomas had left the vehicle in gear and running, and did not cooperate with officers who asked him to shut it down and hand them the keys. Instead, Thomas placed the keys on the dash.

When a backup officer arrived, Thomas was told to exit the vehicle, but instead grabbed the keys and attempted to restart it. The police officer reached through the window to try to cover the ignition, and the other officer tried to grab Thomas's arm, but Thomas leaned over and began kicking the first officer in the chest and arm. The first officer then drew his weapon on Thomas, whose hands were near the center console and not visible to him.

At this point is when Thomas screamed at the officer to kill him, and reached into his waistband as if to draw a weapon. The officers backed up, and as Thomas tried again to restart the car, the second officer deployed his taser at Thomas, but missed. Thomas continued to violently kick at the officers, and at one point, even tried to grab at the barrel of the officer's weapon in what officers said was an attempt to take it. Finally, the first officer was able to get his Taser deployed and struck Thomas with it. Officers had to use the Taser for three cycles to get control of Thomas.

When Thomas was searched in this incident, he was found to have a large knife in his pocket, and a black bandana tied onto a large padlock to be used as a weapon.

Thomas admitted that he had been using "speed" (amphetamine), and officers found three marijuana blunts in the car.

For this incident, Thomas was convicted of Attempting to Take a Weapon from an Officer (State Jail Felony), Assaulting a Public Servant, (3rd Degree Felony), Resisting Arrest (Class A Misdemeanor), and Failing to Identify / Giving False Info (Class B Misdemeanor).

He pleaded guilty was sentenced to one year incarceration on the weapon charge, six years confinement on the assault charge, and 60 and 45 days respectively on the misdemeanor charges.

Department of Public Safety records indicate that Thomas spent some time incarcerated, but we are still trying to decipher the court documents to determine how he was paroled, or otherwise released. What we do know at this point, was that on October 20th of this year, a motion was filed by the Dallas County District Attorney to revoke his probation.


We are still learning about his criminal history, which includes prior auto theft, and will post more when we learn more.

Updated: Violent Car Thief Shot by Police After High Speed Chase

Local News, Notes and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2014/11/26 18:10:00 (2445 reads)

Open in new windowOpen in new windowOpen in new windowThis is a developing story. Check back for updates and photos.

A car thief met his end Wednesday afternoon after running from police who were chasing him over a road rage incident. The thief crashed into two other cars at the corner of Rockbrook and FM 3040 in Lewisville, then attempted to carjack two other vehicles with a shotgun.

Lewisville Police Captain Dan Rochelle said that the suspect had stolen a car from a doctor in Highland Village, but that police first became aware of the suspect when they received a call about a road rage incident this morning about 11:40 a.m. That incident involving the stolen car ended up in the parking lot of the Cracker Barrel restaurant near Fox Avenue and I-35E. There the suspect had pointed a shotgun at someone, and fled that location in what the police believe was his own car that had been staged at that location. The suspect had been dropped off at the location in a gray Nissan.

Lewisville patrol officers caught up with the suspect and gave chase. A witness on the scene said that the suspect turned from FM 3040 into the Sonic parking lot with police in pursuit, then came out of the shopping center onto Rockbrook, then turned West on FM 3040, only to turn around again headed east in the wrong lane of traffic, crashing into two other cars that were at the traffic light on FM 3040 at Rockbrook. The suspect’s car ended up stuck on the curb at that corner.

At this point, witnesses said the thief got out of his car with a shotgun and ran over to a truck that was fueling up at pump 24 of the Racetrack gas station, and tried to steal it. Unsuccessful with the first vehicle for whatever reason, he went to an SUV at pump 22 right behind that, where a woman had just finished fueling up. Seeing the man with the shotgun, the woman ran around behind the vehicle to hide from him. Two patrol officers pulled up and told the man to drop his gun. Rochelle couldn’t say for sure whether the individual had fired at police officers, but one witness we talked to who had seen the whole thing said that the thief had aimed his weapon in the direction of officers and fired a round.

The witness said she saw him attempt to “cock” the shotgun, and it is at that point the man was shot by police, right behind the SUV at pump 22. Rochelle said that one of the officers fired at least several times. While Rochelle couldn’t say exactly how many shots had been fired, numerous 9mm shell casings could be seen in the gas station’s driveway. Police said the shotgun was a single-shot break-open type gun, and that it had a spent shell inside the chamber.

The thief was taken to Medical Center of Lewisville where he was pronouced dead. Rochelle said that the officer was doing okay. One of the other drivers was injured, but not seriously.

We will update this story as we learn more.

Updated: Lewisville Police Report Several Armed Robberies Over the Weekend

Local News, Notes and Events
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2014/11/25 1:00:00 (3441 reads)

Open in new windowLewisville Police reported that they responded to several armed robberies over the past weekend, at least two of which they said were similar. Arrests were made of suspects who committed robberies in both Lewisville and Flower Mound. The following information comes from the police department and a review of radio traffic recordings.

Saturday, 4:23 p.m. - Cigarettes 4 Less - 1640 S. Highway 121 Business
The clerk said that a man entered the store and selected merchandise, attempting to pay with a credit card. The clerk asked for identification from the man, but the name on the ID did not match the name on the credit card. The man agreed to leave his identification with the clerk while he went to get the credit card owner. Approximately ten minutes later, the man returned and displayed a small black handgun, asking for all of the money in the register and the clerk’s cell phone. The robber fled with the cell phone and an undisclosed amount of money. Officers checked the area but were unable to locate him. Police continue to investigate this offense. The robber was described as skinny white man in glasses, about 20 years old, 5 feet, 7 inches tall.

Update - 11/26/2014:
Two suspects are charged in this crime, after being caught in a robbery in Flower Mound on the same day. David Michael Miller, 17, of Lewisville and Kanon Morgan Van Guilder of Flower Mound are charged with robbery and credit card abuse, and both remain in Denton County Jail. Miller's bond is set at $29,000 on all charges, and Van Guilder's bond is set at $20,000 for the Flower Mound robbery, and not yet set in the Lewisville robbery.

Denton Record Chronicle has more on this story.


Saturday, 9:11 p.m. - Oak Forest Apartments - 1531 S. 121 Business
A woman stated that she was approached by two men as she parked her vehicle in the apartment complex parking lot. She stated that one of the men displayed a black handgun and demanded her purse and cell phone. The victim complied and the robbers fled the area on foot. The victim stated both men were black, and between 5 feet, 8 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches tall, possibly wearing hooded sweatshirts. Responding officers checked the area with a canine, who initially led them to several upstairs units in the complex. After making contact with occupants in those units, police were unable to locate anyone matching the description. The victim’s purse was later recovered along I-35 East in Dallas.

Sunday, 4:00 a.m. - La Quinta Inn - 1657 S. I-35 E - Near Corporate and Southwest Parkway
Officer Fernandez observed an occupied vehicle in the parking lot of the Sun Suites hotel on Corporate Drive. The male occupants said they had just been robbed. They told police that as they were leaving their hotel at the La Quinta, they were approached by a black man about 5 feet 10 inches wearing dark colored sweats and a hooded sweatshirt. They said the robber displayed a handgun and demanded their wallets and cell phones. One victim complied by giving the robber his belongings. The suspect then fled down an exterior hallway and out of sight. Officers searched the area but were unable to locate the robber. Radio traffic indicates the victims may have been under the influence of a substance at the time, and were at the location to connect with a “woman” they met online.

Other
The Lewisville Texan Journal did hear radio traffic related to another incident, but does not have enough information to share at this time. We'll update the story if we learn more about any of these crimes.

Anyone with information about any of these robberies is urged to contact Lewisville Police at 972.219.8477 or through any of the other methods available.

There was also an armed robbery in Flower Mound on Saturday afternoon. Police there have two suspects in custody. (See update above)

3.3 Magnitude Earthquake Shakes Irving

Local News, Notes and Events
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2014/11/23 10:19:59 (126 reads)

According to the US Geological Survey, a 3.3 magnitude earthquake shook Irving Saturday night at about 9:15 p.m. The quake was at a depth of about 1.8 miles below the surface.

Commenters on The Lewisville Texan Journal's Facebook page, and those of other news sources said that some Lewisville residents could feel it.

The USGS "Did you Feel It?" web page for this event shows responses from as far away as Fort Worth, Decatur, and McKinney, as well as several responses from Lewisville.

Many have suggested that the drastic increase in the frequency of earthquakes in North Texas could be related to gas drilling and wastewater disposal activity. Though we have no way to tie a specific quake to that activity, we do note that we looked up the nearest gas well to the epicenter of this quake, and the bore hole is approximately 1.8 miles away, while the lateral runs in the opposite direction away from the epicenter.

There was 2.3 magnitude earthquake in Irving earlier this month.

Recycling Rates, Participation Improve with Lewisville's New Trash Plan

Local News, Notes and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2014/11/22 12:34:52 (277 reads)

Open in new windowSince service changes were implemented in August that included once-a-week garbage collection and larger wheeled recycling carts, the recycling participation rate among Lewisville residences has increased 18 percent and the diversion rate, which compares tonnage recycled to total waste stream tonnage, has nearly doubled.

In late July, Waste Management delivered 96-gallon carts for trash and 96-gallon carts with a yellow lid for recycling in front of each residence. All services were moved to once-a-week, and collection routes were changed to improve efficiency. Trash, recycling, bulky waste and yard waste now are all collected on the same day for each residential route.

One goal of the changes was to increase participation in curbside recycling, and early results show that has happened. The monthly average participation for the first six months of this year was 56 percent; in October, it was 66 percent. The diversion rate in July was 11 percent of all waste, compared to 19 percent in October.

Woman Mugged at Gunpoint Sunday Night at Lewisville Grocery Store

Local News, Notes and Events
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2014/11/18 0:30:00 (6585 reads)

Open in new windowLewisville Police reported that a woman was mugged Sunday night at gunpoint:

On November 16, 2014, at approximately 8:35 p.m., a 34 year-old female was robbed as she returned to her vehicle in the parking lot of a grocery store in the 1000 block of West Main Street. The victim stated a suspect approached her, displayed a gun and demanded all of her money. The victim stated the suspect then ran to a silver vehicle and fled the area. The victim immediately called 911 and call-takers relayed the suspect information to officers in the area.

Officers Jose Montoya and John Reid were in the area on another call. The officers saw a vehicle that matched the description of the one used in the robbery. The officers noticed the driver also matched the description provided by the victim. They stopped the vehicle in the 700 block of Old Orchard and contacted the occupants of the vehicle.

The victim was able to identify the person who robbed her in the parking lot. Officers arrested a 17 year-old for Aggravated Robbery. The 20 year-old driver of the car was also arrested for Aggravated Robbery and Driving While Intoxicated. Both defendants were transported to the Lewisville City Jail and booked for their offenses.

Lewisville Prepares for Winter Weather with New Equipment

Local News, Notes and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2014/11/16 22:10:00 (644 reads)

New plows and sand spreaders enhance the city's ice removal capabilities, but the city stands by its position that state roads are TxDOT responsibility.

Last year, in Early December, North Texas suffered several days of ice and snow that we called “Icepocalypse 2013” that made roads treacherous and in some cases impassable. LISD dismissed classes, and the City of Lewisville cancelled its Old Town Holiday Stroll event. Over a period from Thursday, December 5th, 2013 - Monday, December 9th, 2013, Lewisville first responders dealt with 10 major vehicle crashes, 72 minor vehicle crashes, 131 disabled vehicles, and 138 traffic hazards.

Roads were covered with ice that was only sanded, and not plowed off, so slush formed and refroze each night. The City did have one snow plow attachment which it ran on one of its trucks, but that unfortunately could not get to each of the city’s thoroughfares.


Lewisville's Snow and Ice Removal Equipment
2013: (Icepocalypse)
1 snow plow
6 sand spreaders

2014: (Current)
3 snow plows
7 sand spreaders


2014: (Soon)
5 snow plows
7 sand spreaders
The economic impact of that event is hard to estimate, but many Lewisville residents stayed home from work due to the roads, and in order to deal with kids who could not go to school. The lost productivity from that event as well as the economic damages due to wrecks and injuries likely eclipse any savings from foregoing the purchase of snow removal equipment for the City.

Lewisville Public Works Manager David Stocks says that the city recently replaced three of the city’s old sand spreaders with new ones, and added one small spreader to make a total of 7 sand spreaders.

“We also added snow plow attachments to 4 truck orders that were scheduled for replacement,” said Stocks, noting that two of the attachments were for dump trucks and two were for smaller service trucks. “Two of those trucks have arrived and are in service, and the remaining two are expected within a few weeks,” Stocks added.

Both the snow plow attachments and sand spreaders are able to be installed on vehicles that are used throughout the year for other public works usage. Stocks said that once an ice storm or snow is forecast, the plows are attached and the spreaders are loaded into the trucks. Public Services Director Carole Bassinger says that the City of Lewisville stockpiles sand at all times.
