MULTI-AGENCY OPERATION IN DESOTO NABS TWO FUGITIVES WITHOUT INCIDENT: DeSoto & Texarkana (Tx) Police Join State & Regional SWAT For Successful Operation
For a brief time on Monday afternoon, the 1100 block of Hummingbird Drive in DeSoto was humming with law enforcement activity, but a well-coordinated operation involving DeSoto Police, Texarkana (Texas) Police, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Southwest Regional Response Group SRT team took two fugitives into custody and concluded the joint operation without incident.
The law enforcement agencies began working together when Texarkana (Texas) Police needed to serve an arrest warrant for Capital Murder on a suspect that they tracked to DeSoto. They reached out to DeSoto Police, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Southwest Regional Response Group SRT Team to ensure that the necessary team was in place.
The Capital Murder suspect was taken into custody without incident along with a second individual sought on a warrant unrelated to the Capital Murder charge. Two firearms were also seized.
