Aggravated Assault Deadly Weapon

 On Friday, February 18th, 2022, at approximately 11:30 p.m., our victim from Dallas drove to Haltom City to meet up and purchase some expensive jeans listed on an OfferUp ad. The purchase was planned to occur at an apartment complex located in the 5600 block of Coventry Park Drive. The victim was initially suspicious of the transaction due to the late hour but decided to proceed anyway. As the seller approached the victim's vehicle it was clear that the jeans were not as described, and the sale was not going as planned. The victim decided to drive off and the suspect pulled out a pistol and began shooting. The victim's vehicle was struck multiple times. One of the rounds made it through the vehicle and lodged in the victim's jacket. The bullet luckily had lost enough velocity to not penetrate through the jacket and only bruised the victim. CID and Crime Scene were both notified and assisted with processing the scene.

Here are some safety tips listed on OfferUp's own webpage: We want you to buy and sell safely, and we're grateful that you're willing to meet others to make it happen. Keep in mind that just because someone is buying or selling on line doesn't guarantee your safety: You're responsible for your safety, so when you arrange a meetup, take sensible precautions. In the event of an emergency or any danger, call 911 or your local emergency number.

Before you meet:

  • Never share confidential information with another person (i.e. passwords, social security numbers, banking information).
  • Don't share your phone number. Chat through the OfferUp app! Follow our tips for messaging.
  • Research the person, product, and place.
  • Check out the other person's profile. What do others say about them?
  • Look at the item photos. Do they give you enough detail?
  • Pick a safe place during a busy time of day.
  • Use the built-in meetup feature to find Community Meet Up Spots.
  • Always buy and sell in well-lit, monitored, public locations such as cafes or grocery stores.

Pursuit – 3500 Haltom Rd.

On Thursday, March 17, 2022, at approximately 11:00 a.m., the Haltom City Police Department responded to a residence in the 5000 block of Monna St. in reference to a disturbance. When officers arrived, they found an agitated female in the front yard. While the officer tried to speak with the female, she got into a vehicle and led officers on a pursuit. During the pursuit, the female intentionally struck a police vehicle and attempted to strike several officers. Due to the female’s violent and erratic behavior and to protect the citizens that had gathered outside to observe the pursuit, a Pursuit Intervention Technique was utilized. This led to the female’s vehicle striking a tree and coming to a stop in the 3500 block of Haltom Rd. Officers immediately provided first aid until medical personnel arrived. The female was transported to a local hospital where she is being treated for what appear to be non-life-threatening injuries. Due to the extent of her medical injuries, she is being released to medical personnel.

This is still an ongoing investigation and information will be released as it becomes available. Criminal charges are anticipated and will be determined after a thorough investigation.

On Sunday, August 30, 2020, at approximately 8:35 p.m., Haltom City Officers responded to a report of a wrong way driver traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of the 5600 block of NE Loop 820. Witnesses reported a blue Chevy pickup was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of NE Loop 820. As officers started to arrive in the area, they drove upon a crash that had just occurred in the 5400 block of NE Loop 820 eastbound. The two vehicles involved, a gray BMW passenger car and a blue Chevrolet Silverado pickup, were sitting on the inside lane and shoulder of NE Loop 820. The BMW was starting to catch fire. Officers were able to pull two occupants of the BMW out of the wreckage before the vehicle caught fire further; however, they were unsuccessful in removing the third passenger from the vehicle. The occupant of the pickup was pulled away from the fire. All three occupants of the BMW, an adult male, an adult female, and a minor female, were pronounced deceased at the scene. The sole occupant of the pickup was taken by CareFlight to Harris Methodist in Fort Worth with life threatening injuries. It is believed that alcohol was a factor in the collision.
