“Keeping Dallas Safe” – Bait Property Operations

As bait operations continue throughout the City of Dallas, officers refuse to let up the pressure on the bad guys. Through continuous diligence, dedication and team work, officers continue to provide an unparalleled level of service to the citizens of Dallas. Below are just a few examples of the hard work by officers in “Keeping Dallas Safe” so that communities may rest easy at night.

BAit car

On July 07, 2018, at approximately 1:21 a.m., the suspects, Francisco Lemmons L/M/20 and Mario Zambrano L/M/19, arrived at the location of a bait car that was placed in an area where citizens had an increasing concern of thefts. Both suspects exited their vehicle and began removing multiple items from the bait vehicle. After placing the items into the vehicle, they fled the location. All the while our Fusion Unit monitored the bait activation and notified the Southeast Patrol officers, Deployment officers, and the CRT officers. After patiently tracking the suspects’ vehicle through the city, officers finally made their move when the timing was right and were able to arrest both suspects, who were still in possession of the bait items. After a being interviewed by investigators, both suspects gave a full confession.

Fancisco Lemmons

Francisco Lemmons was charged with Burglary of a Motor Vehicle.  He also had an active warrant out of the Dallas Sherriff’s Office.

Mario Zamorano

Mario Zamorano was charged with Burglary of a Motor Vehicle and possession of Marijuana.

On July 11, 2018 at approximately 2:26 a.m., the Fusion Unit received a notification that bait items were being removed from a strategically placed bait car in the Southwest Division. The Fusion officer was able to observe Rudy Gallegos a L/M/53 walk up to the bait vehicle and begin to take the bait property out of the vehicle. The Fusion officer was able to get an accurate description of the suspect and was able to direct patrol officers to a residence (would be nice to have a street). When officers arrived to the address, a witness  gave officers consent to enter the residence where they located the suspect attempting to hide. Mr. Gallegos was placed under arrest without incident and the property was recovered.  

Capture

Mr. Gallegos was charged with Burglary of a Motor Vehicle.

Another one took the “bait”, BOOM! We Gotcha. Outstanding work in “Keeping Dallas Safe”.

On July 13, 2018, the CRT and Deployment Units from North Central Patrol initiated a traffic stop on a suspect driving a black Chevrolet Camaro that detectives knew to be involved in multiple business burglaries in the North Central Division. 

The suspect, Shane Richards W/M/46, was placed under arrest for Displaying Wrong License Plate and transported to North Central Investigative Unit where he was interviewed by detectives.  During the interview, Richards admitted to his involvement in six Business Burglary offenses, a Criminal Mischief, and a Theft of Property. The Dallas County DA Community Response Team will handle the prosecution of these cases.

Public Assistance Needed to Identify Business Robbery Suspect

On June 23, 2018, an unknown White male wearing a blue plaid long sleeve shirt entered a business in the 400 block of West 8th Street and demanded money from the cash register.

Mavs hire Jenny Boucek as an assistant to the team’s basketball staff and special projects

DALLAS – Jenny Boucek was hired Wednesday by the Dallas Mavericks to be an assistant to the team’s basketball staff and special projects.

Boucek, 44, has built a solid basketball reputation and resume over the past two decades, including being an assistant coach with the Seattle Storm when they captured WNBA championships in 2004 and 2010. She also played briefly in the WNBA for the Cleveland Rockers in 1997 before playing for Keflavik in the Icelandic Urvalsdeild later that year.

The Nashville, TN, product joins the Mavs after spending last season with the NBA’s Sacramento Kings.

“Jenny is a veteran WNBA head coach and was a player development coach last season for the Sacramento Kings,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “She will be involved in wide-ranging basketball assignments.”

Boucek was named the Foreign Player of the Year after helping Keflavik capture the Icelandic Basketball Cup and the Icelandic championship in her lone season with the club during the 1997-98 campaign. She then returned to the Rockets in 1998, but retired from playing basketball that year because of a career-ending back injury.

An alumni of the University of Virginia – the same place where Carlisle played his college basketball – Boucek was the head coach of the Sacramento Monarchs from 2007-09. She also has worked as an assistant coach in the WNBA with the Washington Mystics (1999), Miami Sol (2000-02) and Seattle Storm (2003-05, 2010-14).

In addition, Boucek posted a 36-58 record as the head coach of the Storm from 2015-17. She also guided the Monarchs to a 40-41 record in her two-plus seasons as that team’s head coach.

As a college player, Boucek was a guard for Virginia from 1992-96 and a two-time GTE Academic All-American.

“I consider her one of the brightest minds in our game,” Carlisle said, “and welcome her to Dallas.”

Rangers looking for young pitching at Deadline

From drinking snake’s blood to winning Olympic gold in China, Tony Ronzone’s journey through basketball has taken one incredible turn after another

“This is a bloody story,” a laughing Donnie Nelson said as we went down memory lane.

It was the early-‘90s when Donnie Nelson and Tony Ronzone traveled together on one of their first scouting trips to China. A teenager by the name of Wang Zhizhi had caught Ronzone’s attention, so he and Nelson decided to head to China to scout Zhizhi first hand.

In the scouting world, especially international, earning the trust of people around a prospect means everything – even if it means going to extreme measures to earn that trust.

Once Nelson and Ronzone arrived in China, they spent some time getting to know some of the Chinese leaders on the scene. One night, as they were all out for dinner, it was time to test the loyalty and trust of Nelson and Ronzone. One of their traditions involved bringing in a bag of snakes.

“In the bag, there were four or five snakes and they asked Donnie to pick a snake out,” Ronzone recalled. “Of course, Donnie picks the biggest one. It was a king cobra.”

They took the snake that Nelson chose and took it to the back to chop it up. Ronzone said they had no clue what to expect. The snake was served as a meal next and, to Ronzone’s delight, it tasted quite well. But then the meeting took a quick turn.

They brought out a liquid, red with a little green mixed in. It was the snake’s blood, and it was Nelson’s to drink. If you wanted to be a trusted member of the group, you had to drink the snake’s blood.

“Of course, Donnie decides to pass it down to me,” Ronzone remembered. “I took the blood in honor of Donnie and the Dallas Mavericks to help promote our relationship in the country of China.”

This is just one of the countless stories the two best friends have together while out scouting the world for the next great basketball talent. The two best friends that talk to each other more than their wives and the two best friends that help make the biggest decisions within the Dallas Mavericks organization.

“I first met Tony at a Jambalaya festival,” Nelson said. “I was working for the Warriors at the time. I was wearing it down my shirt as I recall and Tony handed me a napkin.”
This was the beginning of a 30-plus-year friendship, but as the NBA goes, not all of those years were spent working together.

Tony Ronzone spent the early part of his 20s actually playing basketball himself with stops in New Zealand, Australia, and other places around the world. After his pro playing career, Ronzone knew that basketball was his passion and went directly into the coaching world. One of his first stops was coaching a team out of Dubai and even coaching the Saudi Arabian National Team.

Nelson and Ronzone had stayed in touch over the years when they finally reconnected in person at the Goodwill Games in Russia in the early-‘90s.

“The only scout in the NBA that was there was Donnie Nelson and I was the only coach that came to scout and learn more about the game,” Ronzone said. “We were at the gym every day and all day together. We were picking each other’s brains.”

“A conversation started then about a prospect in China that was seven-foot tall.” Ronzone added.

This was their first conversation about Wang Zhizhi.

A short time after, Ronzone would be hired as a scout for the Dallas Mavericks in 1998. That initial conversation in Russia led to one of their first trips to China together, where the rest was history with drinking snake blood.

But humor aside, the relationships and trust that were built in those early years by Ronzone and Nelson in China led to the Mavericks drafting a 16-year-old Wang Zhizhi in the second round of the 1999 NBA Draft. He would make his appearance two years later and become the first Chinese-born player to appear in an NBA game.

Their strong China ties didn’t stop there. After their initial trip, they were invited back to host a basketball clinic in Shanghai where they would coach and conduct a 3-on-3 tournament for local teenagers.

“It was then we saw a 7-foot-4 Yao Ming playing in the streets of China,” Ronzone said.

Their strong relationships in China would eventually lead to Ronzone becoming an assistant coach for the Chinese National Basketball Men’s Team. He would be the first American to ever hold such a title in China.

During Ronzone’s first stint with the Mavericks, he would play an integral role in drafting not just the first Chinese-born NBA player in Zhizhi, but also the first Mexican-born player in Eduardo Najera.

Ronzone would eventually be plucked by Joe Dumars and the Detroit Pistons to become their Director of International Scouting in 2001. He would play an important role in finding and scouting Mehmet Okur in Turkey. Detroit would later draft Okur in the second round of the 2001 NBA Draft.

“Tony opened the organization’s eyes to the international world of basketball,” former president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said. “Tony was outstanding with us in Detroit.”

After winning a championship with the Pistons in 2004, Ronzone would then take on a new title. This time, it was Jerry Colangelo calling. In 2006, Team USA had just lost in the quarterfinals of the World Championships and was due for a culture change. Ronzone would be brought onto Mike Krzyzewski’s coaching staff as an assistant coach and director of player personnel.

Ronzone, being an expert in international scouting, would take on the task of scouting each of the upcoming opponents for Team USA. “My job was to educate LeBron and Kobe on who these players were,” Ronzone said.

There was a respect level for the international game that was lacking and Ronzone was determined to help change it.

It was the summer of 2007 when Team USA was playing in the FIBA Americas Championship. It was Ronzone’s job to put together tape of the opposing teams and present them to the U.S. players in preparation for their next game.

“I would have my video guys put together videos of who each guy was going to defend,” Ronzone said. “We were playing Brazil. So I asked myself, how could I motivate Kobe?”

He had an idea.

After practice the next day, Ronzone handed Bryant a single DVD and told him to watch it that night. “He came in the next morning and said ‘I like you,’” Ronzone said. “He looked at me and said ‘I got you.’”

Admitting that it was hard to do for his video guys, Ronzone’s DVD for Bryant consisted of 15 possessions over the past four years where Bryant was matched up on Brazilian guard Leandro Barbosa. All 15 times, Barbosa had scored on Bryant.

“He was foaming at the mouth in the locker room,” Ronzone said. “We start the game and we are going over the lineups. Kobe literally says ‘Coach, I have Leandro.’”

Off the opening tip, Kobe knocked the ball away and literally dove on the floor in the first five seconds of the game after a loose ball. Team USA scored on the possession. The place went nuts.

“We used that play all the way until 2012,” Ronzone said. “Every time we had a film session with new guys, we showed them that play. Because we explained to our guys that no matter how great of players you are, if you don’t have the intensity and effort in a 40-minute game, we can get beat.”

Ronzone believes that single play helped spark a new passion in American basketball and it was felt all the way through the AAU circuits.

A year after the FIBA Americas Championship, Ronzone and Team USA would win a gold medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He would also help lead Team USA to a gold medal in the World Championships in 2010 and another in the 2012 London Olympics. He would never lose a game during his time with Team USA.

If you are keeping track, that’s three gold medals with Team USA, a gold medal with China in the Southeast Asia Games in 2001, and an NBA Championship in 2004 with Detroit. That’s a lot of gold.

You can also read about Ronzone’s impact on Team USA in a portion of Mike Krzyzewski’s book entitled “The Gold Standard: Building a World-Class Team.”

Going back to his journey in the NBA, Ronzone would leave Detroit in 2010 to take the assistant general manager role with the Minnesota Timberwolves. After spending two years in Minnesota and playing a crucial part in drafting Ricky Rubio, Ronzone would be let go from his position.

It was then that his old friend, Donnie Nelson, came calling. The Dallas Mavericks would hire him as their director of player personnel in 2012, and he has held that title ever since.

“There are not many guys that you can have a conversation with about any basketball market on planet earth,” Nelson said.

“Basically, my job is to know every player in the world,” Ronzone added.

And for a man that has been in more than 98 countries all over the world, there isn’t a basketball market on the planet that Ronzone isn’t familiar with. Not only has he probably been there, but he also has connections and relationships that have spanned the globe for years.

“He is our window to the basketball globe,” Mark Cuban said. “He has been invaluable. He is a great judge of talent and a big part of Donnie’s staff.”

A little over 20 years ago Ronzone played a role in bringing a skinny, floppy-haired German kid by the name of Dirk Nowitzki to the Dallas Mavericks. Today, Ronzone has his fingerprints all over the next potential international star in Dallas: Luka Doncic.

Discovering stars

While the scouting process starts as early as 13 and 14 years old for some prospects, what to look for in that process is what separates the best of the best in the scouting industry. For Ronzone, it centers on three particular areas.

Hand skills. Foot skills. Mental skills.

Every single player in their database, a number in the multiple of thousands, has a scouting profile centered on these three main categories. Without digging too deep, the hand and foot portion of scouting is self-explanatory for the most part. It is the mental aspect of a prospect that is the hardest to scout.

“We do a lot of intel and background information,” Ronzone said. “Is he emotionally stable? Does he listen to the coach? Does he love to play? Especially with bigs, because a lot of them don’t love to play.”

When it comes to evaluation, the more information, the better. “Information wins,” Ronzone said.

In an example of different ways he gains information on prospects, Ronzone said that sometimes he walks around college campuses of prospects he is scouting. He will stop other students and teachers on campus to ask their opinion on the prospect. There is an importance to gaining different opinions from people with no affiliation to the prospect.

Scouting in the midst of the data-driven analytical movement, the mental aspect is something you need to see and scout in person to get an accurate assessment. The eye test still holds significant weight.

“You have to have the eye test,” Ronzone said. “The eye test is still number one to this day.”

It was the eye test that has put Ronzone in some interesting situations over the years, situations that separate Ronzone from the rest in the scouting industry. One of his stickier situations came when he traveled to North Korea in 1998 to scout a young prospect. When you have the connections that Ronzone has all throughout the world, you get calls constantly on prospects you need to be on the lookout for. This time, it was different. Ronzone received a call about a 7-foot-9 teenager living and playing in North Korea. Ronzone had to see the kid.

Obviously, traveling to North Korea as an American wasn’t the easiest thing to pull off, let alone something that Americans even wanted to do. But Ronzone made the necessary calls to make it happen. The plan was to host a basketball clinic in North Korea and get the kid, named Michael Ri, to attend.

“Rodman was after me. I was there before him,” Ronzone said with a laugh.

In order to fly into North Korea, Ronzone had to first fly to Thailand and then to China where they would meet him at the airport with his visa. Except they never showed, and Ronzone found himself detained in the airport for more than eight hours.

“Then the Thailand airlines got fined so they had to send me back to Thailand,” Ronzone recalled. He would spend three days in Thailand while he waited for the next opportunity at the twice-a-week flight to North Korea. Almost a week later, Ronzone finally made it. He hosted his basketball clinic and Michael Ri came walking through the doors.

Ri attended the clinic for one day, and Ronzone has never seen him since.

All of that to lay eyes on a prospect for a few hours who would never come close to playing in the NBA. That is the cost of being the best – a title that Ronzone holds in the eyes of many throughout the league.

My New Dream Girl

Well it has been a while since I posted. I guess after finding out my dream girl was having a baby by another guy I just wasn’t in the mood to post. But I’m back folks! So I have a new dream girl. It is a bit of a long story so sit back,pour a cup of coffee and relax. So I have been stalking the Facebook page of the bar I use to work at-ya know how a single guys does when he has no life. I saw some pictures of a beautiful girl that bartends there. Blond hair,beautiful smile…just perfect. Of course I figured I would never have a chance with her-specially since she is about 20 years younger. But a guy can dream right? So a couple days ago I was looking around seekingarrangements to see if anyone new had signed up and who do I see? Yep that girl! We will call her…Tanya…So I figured hey send her a message who knows what might happen. She sent me a message back and we sent a few more messages back and forth. I gave her my number and SURPRISE she sends me a text! So we have been talking for a couple days now. She even says she likes older guys and not the young military guys that come into the bar where she works. We are planning on meeting this week. So we will see what happens…I have my fingers crossed and won’t be surprised if she disappears before we actually meet….but I might just actually have found my future wife-or she may just “ghost” on me like so many flakey girls do. Stay tuned..maybe the Single Guy won’t be single much longer!


My Dream Girl’s Baby Daddy Revealed

Well after a month of stalking my dream girl’s facebook page I finally found out who her baby daddy is. To get you up to speed I was shocked a while back to find out my dream girl was pregnant. I had never even seen her post anything about a man in her life. Well after a long wait she finally tagged her baby daddy to a post about the baby. I of course had to click on his name and check him out. And of course he is a low ranking military guy. Now don’t get me wrong I respect our military. But in this area most of the military guys are not the most upstanding people. And this guy is no different. So prediction-in a year or two my dream girl will be a single mother,left by her baby daddy when he got transfered or cheated on her with some other flavor of the week. But hey that is the life of a single guy-watching the hot girls fall for the cool guys that don’t deserve them and will treat them like crap.


My Dream Girl Is Pregnant

I was stalking around Facebook the other night checking out different posts by people like I do when I am bored. I checked out the Facebook page of a girl I have always had a huge crush on. This girl is beautiful. My total dream girl. What did I see? A post saying she was pregnant. That’s right my dream girl is pregnant. Now don’t get me wrong I always knew and know I would never have a chance with this girl. But what surprised me is that she never talks about a man in her life. She never posts pictures of her and a guy. And in fact I always thought maybe she was a lesbian because she always posted pictures of her and her hot model girlfriends. So now I am wondering who is the father? Is she dating someone and just not posting it? Even in the comments on her posts about being pregnant everyone just congratulates her. They never mention a boyfriend. Did she get pregnant by having a drunken one night stand? Did she intentionally get pregnant even though she says it was a surprise finding out she was pregnant? I mean no offense but there is so much birth control around if a girl gets pregnant she is either really stupid or wanted to get pregnant. And I have never considered this girl to be stupid. And who is the guy and what is he like? Is he some military guy from Fort Drum? Is he a professional? Is he unemployed? And does he ever know or care he is going to have a baby with this goddess? So many unanswered questions! One thing for sure,I will be checking out her page a lot to see if I can get an idea of exactly who this lucky guy is. This guy that knocked up my dream girl!


2017-And Still Single

Well we are almost a month into 2017-and I am still single. I wonder if Miss Right will find me this year. She seemed like she was in hiding during 2016. I mean I realize a lot of things happened in 2016 and she was probable busy. My Miss Right was probable busy helping Trump get elected President. Miss Right most likely was working with Obama to fight this Isis problem. Miss Right was obviously tied up helping my Cowboys win the NFC East. Oh and I am totally sure my Miss Right was completely taken up with helping to stop this whole Global Warming situation. But come on enough is enough….come on Miss Right…put all this dam community service aside and find me already!


Scam Girls

I never thought I would fall for it-but I did. You see there is a large group of girls on the internet that try to scam guys. They try to get them to send them money with the promises they want to meet but need some help to get by. I always have thought I was smart about all this. When I start talking to a girl off one of the dating websites I always try to look her up to make sure she is real. Well I started texting a girl yesterday off the Seekingarrangement website I have been on for about a year. We were texting back and forth. I searched her number on facebook and found her profile. Everything seemed legit. She said she wanted a long term arrangement with an older guy. We talked until about 5pm. Then she said she was trying to get money for her baby sitter and gas in the car and if I would send her some money. She even said she was sorry she was asking and would pay me back when she got paid next week. So I sent her $50 through Paypal. She said thank you so much. I said your welcome. And that was it. I texted her a few times after that and no response. I sent her a friend request on facebook and she blocked me. I had fallen for it. A scam girl had gotten me! The funny part about the whole thing is she could have gotten way more from me if she had kept talking to me and kept me going. I mean seriously $50 is not much,hell I spent more then that on lunch yesterday. But it’s just the point I got had. But you live and learn.

War Is Coming

People don’t want to admit it but war is coming between the U.S. and North Korea. North Korea is getting close to having a long range Nuclear missile that can hit the U.S. Americans don’t have the stomach for war but they need to get it and fast. If North Korea is allowed to get a missile that can strike our home land the party is over. The war is not going to be pretty. Lots of people in South Korea will die and so will American soldiers. But war is the only way to stop the mad man in the North. The left wing Liberals,liberal media and lots of gutless Americans think that we can talk to the leader of North Korea to get him to stop his Nuclear and missle programs. But that just won’t work. The more we talk the more he keeps building. He now has a million man army. Now to be honest-again something the Liberal media will not tell you-a lot of those million soldiers in the North are just teenagers. When the real fighting starts a lot of that million is going to run home to mommie. Right now the boys think they are cool in a uniform fighting for their country,but when the bullets and bombs fly the coolness will end and they will drop their arms and run. But there will still be soldiers that fight. The war will start shortly with an air campaign. Once our bombings of the North start then North Korea will start bombing South Korea. Then China will get in as well as Japan. If we are lucky the Russians might sit this one out. They have no real interest in that area of the world and they know they have their hands full in Syria. The war will be short but bloody. And President Trump will carry the blame,when he is actually doing what Presidents before him should have done. They should have stopped North Korea long ago before they were strong enough to give us a battle. But yes America war is coming-so get ready for it!


Why Obama Care Didn’t Work

President Trump is now in the process of repealing and replacing Obama Care. Everyone knows Obama Care didn’t work,even if they do not want to admit it. What a lot of people don’t know is why it didn’t work. It is very simple-Obama Care didn’t work because to many people were forced to buy insurance. The insurance industry is a business,and as a business they need to make a profit. Insurance companies rely on more people having insurance then actually use it. But when Obama Care mandated that everyone had to buy insurance people instantly wanted to use the insurance they purchased. Before,when people didn’t have insurance if they got a cold they stayed in bed,had chicken soup and recovered in a few days. Now with people being forced to buy insurance you can bet as soon as they even got the sniffles they went to the doctor. Before Obama Care people bought insurance for emergencies. The people who had insurance knew that some day they would need it for a major illness,but did not use it for the slightest ailment. The new health care plan that has been introduced does not have a mandate. If they keep that then this new health care law should do fine.


Hollywood Is Out Of Touch

After watching and listing to some of the actors and actresses in the past week talk about President Trump I now know that Hollywood is out of touch with main stream America. Hollywood just can not deal with the fact that their views do not reflect American values. What is worst is Hollywood can not deal with losing the election. Clinton did in deed win the popular vote. But what people don’t want to admit is Clinton won that popular vote by winning NYC and the LA/Hollywood areas. A lot of people live in these areas but their values are not the values of main stream America. Clinton did not win the working voters in Michigan or the farmers in the Midwest. She did not win the Southern voters in the bible belt. Clinton did not win the retired population in Florida. The protesters this past week are showing this generations true colors. A generation that has always gotten a trophy even if they finished last. A generation that has always gotten their own way-from Gay rights to Womens equal rights. A generation that has been able to work less because the government will give them a hand out to make ends meet. Well Hollywood and NYC better buckle their seat belts because the next four years and beyond are going to be a very bumpy ride. President Trump is in the White House and main stream America has taken back their country!


President Trump In 7 More Days

Well its been a long road but in just 7 more days we will have a new President. The last year and a half has been up and down. For a while I actually had my doubts if Trump could do it. But he did! And it is pretty obvious Clinton supporters thought for a long time that she would be the next President. Hotels in the Washinton DC area reported a huge number of cancellations because Clinton supporters had already made reservations planning to come to see their candidate take the Oath of Office. Now most hotels are booked back up again with Trump supporters. To get a room in the Washington DC area next week it will cost over $1,000 a night. Who knows what the next four years will be like. Maybe Trump will be a great President and maybe he won’t. I am certain of one thing however,the liberal media is going crazy trying to figure out what happened. They still will not admit that they were out of touch with main stream America. The liberal media thought what they believed was what America believed. Trump hit a nerve with Americans. When I say Americans I am not talking about people in NYC or LA. Those people do not reflect true Americans. True Americans think the government has gotten out of control,that there is to much interference in our lives and special interest groups like the Gaye and Lesbian groups have gotten way to much attention over the past 8 years. America took their country back and next week their leader will take control of a country wanting and needing a change. God Bless President Trump and God Bless the USA!
