LAKE WORTH, Texas — After mail thefts all across North Texas, Lake Worth Police finally caught two suspects in the act outside the city’s main post office. Recently released dashcam video shows the moments before officers sprang into action to make the arrests.

A Lake Worth Police K-9 Officer gave one of the suspects a verbal warning before getting him into custody, as can be seen in the video.

The quick arrests came as the suspected mail thieves were parked in the turnaround drop box area outside the main post office in Lake Worth.

“It feels fantastic, especially right now during the holiday season,” Lake Worth Police Department’s Chief of Police J.T. Manoushagian said. “Everybody’s on high alert with mail theft and package theft. I’m just incredibly proud of our officers.”

Officers got into a foot chase with the second suspect, who started pleading with officers during his arrest. In part of the video from officer Krista Segeda, you can hear police tell the suspect he was not going to be hurt.
