Read Press Release

The Prosper Police Department Patrol Division successfully apprehended three individuals the Criminal Investigations Division has connected to a series of eight (8) vehicle burglaries in the Villages of Legacy and Whitley Place neighborhoods in Prosper, dating back to April 2023.  With assistance from the Prosper PD Crime Analysis Unit (CAU), detectives identified the subjects and a related vehicle believed to be used in the Prosper crimes, as well as similar burglaries in the cities of McKinney, Frisco and Waxahachie.

At approximately 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday, Prosper PD received a Flock Safety Alert indicating the suspect vehicle was in town. Patrol Officers conducted a traffic stop and confirmed the vehicle and occupants matched the suspects involved in the Prosper burglaries.  All three subjects were taken into custody, facing various warrants and charges. During a search of the vehicle, officers discovered five (5) hidden firearms, one of which was confirmed stolen, along with multiple credit cards from recent burglaries in neighboring Celina.

“I want to commend the tireless efforts of our patrol division, CID and CAU that led to these subjects being removed from the streets of North Texas,” said Prosper Police Chief Doug Kowalski.  “The illegal behavior of these suspects has negatively impacted residents in normally quiet neighborhoods in Prosper, as well as other cities in this region.  Good policing and superb technology landed these subjects in the hands of law enforcement agencies that will work to have them prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

The investigation by CID and CAU also resulted in the referral of leads to the DEA and ATF for offenses that occurred outside of Prosper with other individuals.
