Twice in recent weeks the Dallas Police Department has dispatched surveillance footage of a bald, back-packing man creeping around homes near Midway and Walnut Hill in Northwest Dallas -- the man initially ID'd only as the Lively Lane Prowler. He now has a name, according to an email we just received from DPD spokesman Senior Corporal Kevin Janse: 50-year-old Rickey Lynn White.

Per Janse, "as a result of the media broadcast and YouTube release" of those videos, "we received a number of tips as to the identity of the suspect. One individual was able to positively identify the suspect and as a result, detectives were able to obtain an arrest warrant for the charge of burglary for the following person." White was arrested at 8 this morning not far from the scene of the crimes: on Constance Street, near Marsh and Walnut Hill. Says Janse, "Detectives will continue to investigate to see if they are able to charge him with other offenses, but as of now he faces the one burglary charge." County criminal records show White's been arrested numerous times, in Dallas and Fort Worth, on burglary charges, beginning in 2003; in most cases he received probation. He's now in Dallas County jail. Again.

BADF NEWS! 

 DPD has released him due to a paperwork error!, they cannot re-arrest him on the same charge. What an outrage, This guy has a big criminal history and the police let him walk,  without explanation to the victims.

A white guy. So typical. When will those people get it together?

Good luck keeping him in jail.  We have a scofflaw who has committed 8 burglaries on our street. (Seen at the house, left his name when he pawned, etc.)  He occasionally gets picked up but he is still there.

I'm relieved... not only did they catch the "alleged" burglar, but the fact that the guy is 50.  In the other videos they suspected he was "in his 30's" and I'm thinking damn I must look reallly old at 40...

He looked much younger in that (creepy) surveillance footage.

Please expand on your comment.  Maybe it will help some of us in the same spot.

Castle Law + Firearm + Caught in the Act = no burglar.
