Denton police have arrested three people that have been suspected to be involved in two different theft cases.
In the first case, police responded to a robbery that was in progress at the time. They arrested a man that was carrying out a 40 inch T.V. while a partner drove the vehicle.
After arrested, the man told police that they bought a television earlier in the day, then went back into the store and stole an identical television and showed the receipt from earlier in the day when leaving the store.
The man said that his partner convinced him to do it because he claimed that he had done it multiple times before. Police arrested the man on a theft charge. The partner was later found on Interstate 35 and arrested. The third arrest was a man that was suspected of car theft.

A 34-year-old Dallas Police officer has had charges of domestic violence dropped against him after the alleged victim retracted the claims through a written report.
The arrest occurred late on a Saturday night at an apartment complex when the victim claimed that the 11-year police veteran choked her.

Before the 82nd legislative session multiple bills were filed by Republicans and Democrats to make punishments on driving while intoxicated much tougher, but with the session coming to a close it is thought that many of these bills will not become laws this year.
With only three weeks left in the session, many bills are still in committees and if they are not in the House or Senate by the end of the week, they will be dead. One representative is still hopeful that her bill will pass. The House Bill 3477 states that a driver that is convicted of a DWI five times, they will have their license suspended for 10 years.
