    [DFW] "Fugitive" Warning from Trophy Club Police
    Police expect to receive several phone calls this weekend as they say local high school students plan to play what many call a modern day 'cops and robbers', but with real risk involved.

    The fugitives, often dressed in black, run through neighborhoods, jump fences, run through backyards and hide in bushes, many times on private property.

    The other team chases after them in their vehicles.

    Officers say they average ten calls every night the game is played from concerned residents.

    Many of them are on alert because of a recent rash of car break-ins.

    There’s a safety concern as teens enter private property, as they sometimes speed on residential roads. Extra officers were on hand Friday to make sure teenagers followed the rules.

    Police ask teenagers to stay in public areas and to avoid black or dark clothing.
