Q. - I saw recent reports on WFAA-TV Channel
8 News regarding a robbery spree of area convienence stores in Terrell
and a recent mugging at the Wal-Mart in the parking lot where a lady
had a gun pulled on her, punched in the face and robbed of her purse.
My question is how come this is NOT being featured
at Terrell Tribune online??? They advised me that the Police Department
is slow to releasing information related to this crime spree.
Please advise if this a city policy for the
TPD not report these robberies to the local paper?
Answer - Each of these crimes, as they happened, were
released in the normal daily crime/call for service report we provide
to the news media.
It took some investigation and time for Terrell Police to solidly confirm
a link between the store robberies. Once this was firmly established,
released the video and solicited the community's help in identifying
