Police chase, capture wanted man
Ennis police were contacted Wednesday in reference to a criminal trespass violation at Wal-Mart.
Det. Sgt. Mike Hopson said at 2:12 p.m. Officer Julia Pillow was dispatched to Wal-Mart in reference to a subject violating a criminal trespass warning. The manager told Pillow the subject was at the customer service counter.
Pillow approached the suspect and asked for some identification. The suspect told Pillow he had no identification on him and refused to give a name, according to Hopson. Pillow said the suspect appeared nervous while speaking with her.
The store manager identified the man for Pillow, which led the suspect to flee the scene when Pillow attempted to place him in handcuffs. While Pillow chased the suspect through the store, a customer saw the suspect coming and attempted to get in his way at which time, the suspect pushed the customer into a shelf. According to the police report, witnesses and customers aided in the suspect’s capture by getting in his way and detaining him so Pillow could place him under arrest.
Kevin Charles Franklin, 49, of Ennis was charged with criminal trespass, resisting arrest and evading arrest. It was discovered Franklin was wanted for two outstanding warrants out of the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office for a probation violation and burglary.
