Juvenile Suspect Arrested

A 15-year-old male was arrested today just south of Dallas, Texas under a Directive to Apprehend order related to a burglary of a residence that occurred here in Wichita Falls this Summer.

Once the juvenile male is transported to the Wichita County Juvenile Detention Center, WFPD Juvenile Detectives plan to file more charges on the male related to the recent bomb threats.

A Crime Stoppers tip aided the WFPD in identifying the juvenile male as the suspect. Thank you for your help, Wichita Falls!

This was a coordinated effort between several agencies including but not limited to the WFPD, FBI, U.S. Marshals, Staff and Students of the WFISD, and Texas DPS. Outstanding work by all!
