End of Incident description

Was he a ninja? Santa in July?? An adrenaline craving rooftopper? We may not know his motives, but it doesn’t look like a routine shingles inspection.

What we do know is that he trespassed onto a construction property and climbed onto the roof of a neighboring property. With video surveillance, thermal technology, and professional surveillance monitoring agents, we were able to observe the suspect and assist Dallas Police Department in the arrest. With our supporting video evidence, the trespasser will be charged with Criminal Trespassing.

Good job and thank you Dallas Police Department!
