The City of Wichita Falls recently suffered a rash of vehicle burglaries that occurred on the Southside of the city at numerous apartment complexes. The suspects were targeting unlocked vehicles and taking various items to include checks, passports and debit/credit cards.
Detectives with the Wichita Falls Police Department immediately began investigating the burglaries and were able to develop multiple leads. Warrants for 23 year old Anthony Bowen and 23 year old Destiny Dunbar were issued. Detectives had information to believe that the suspect were in a stolen 2010 Hyundai Elantra and may be in the Archer County area. Detectives began reaching out to surrounding law enforcement agencies.
Early this morning at approximately midnight the two suspects were located in Seymour, Texas and taken into custody for their warrants.
WFPD Detectives began to interview both Dunbar and Bowen at which time they were able to gather information that could lead to the clearing of anywhere between 25 and 50 vehicle burglaries that occurred within Wichita Falls.
Both Dunbar and Bowen were transported to the Archer County jail where they were booked in on the burglary warrants.
WFPD Detectives were able to recover the stolen 2010 Hyundai Elantra along with numerous credit/debit cards and checks.
Additional charges are pending.
