    Authorities say a teenager who burglarized a Dallas police officer's apartment, taking his service weapon and ammunition, was apprehended after he lost his wallet as he fled.

    Police reports said two witnesses chased 18-year-old Adrian Jimmerson when he was seen Feb. 13 carrying a pillowcase full of items.

    The suspect dropped the pillowcase as he jumped a fence, but his pants ripped and his wallet fell to the ground.

    A school identification card also was found.

    Inside the pillowcase officials said the officer's gun belt and weapon were found, mace, an X-Box and clothing.

    Jimmerson was arrested the next day.

    He was being held Tuesday at the Dallas County jail on a charge of burglary of a habitation, with a bond of $10,000. A phone message left with his public defender, Frank Douglas, was not immediately returned.
