Mical Ford, 36 years old, is wanted by the Dallas Police Department for his alleged involvement in stealing five Amazon trucks over 3 months. Ford’s alleged accomplice, Nakemia Bryant, was arrested on March 25.

Bryant, 42 years old, was apprehended on the 2900 block of Cottonwood Lane. She was purportedly with Ford during the thefts. The Southeast Patrol’s Crime Response Team arrested Bryant for an outstanding warrant from Balch Springs for driving while intoxicated and placed robbery charges against her for the theft of the trucks and merchandise.

According to the Dallas Police Department (DPD), Bryant confessed to being involved with the thefts and identified the man she was with as Ford during an interview conducted by the DPD’s Financial Crimes Unit – Organized Retail Crime Squad.

On March 26, a search warrant was executed at Bryant’s residence, where detectives found opened Amazon boxes addressed to different residences.

Police located all five stolen trucks, but all packages inside them were missing. Some of the packages still have not been found. The stolen merchandise is worth over $15,000.

The thefts started in January. In one incident, Ford and Bryant allegedly assaulted the Amazon driver by punching them.

The first theft was on January 28, on the 8200 block of Goldfield Drive. The second was on February 15, on the 1100 block of North St. Augustine Drive. On March 11, they allegedly stole a truck on the 1900 block of Bennet Avenue. The fourth incident was on March 16, on the 10200 block of Tokowa Drive, and the last known theft was on March 22, on the 10300 block of Nantucket Village Court.

NBC DFW shared a video from the Dallas Police Department that supposedly shows Ford driving one of the Amazon trucks while someone rifled through packages in the background.

Amazon employee Domenique, who asked Fox 4 not to reveal her last name, was the victim of the March 22 incident.

“I said, ‘Can I at least have my phone?’ And he handed it to me and drove away. … I was really surprised they hadn’t been caught the first time,” she said.

Ford and Bryant allegedly took off with Domenique’s purse, which held her debit card, driver’s license, and her $250 prescription glasses. Authorities have so far been unable to locate her purse.

According to Domenique, her manager saw Ford and Bryant together on camera stealing a different Amazon truck.

Major Elaine Page said, “We did not locate [all of] the packages. I’m not sure where they ended up. They’re valued at $15,000 worth of product for deliveries that did not get made. … It’s hard to get away with it. It looks like it could be an easy crime. You may get away with it once, but you are going to get caught eventually because [Amazon has] great technology.”

Page stated that harboring a fugitive would bring charges. She also said that organized retail theft charges may be filed for Ford and Bryant as authorities continue to investigate the thefts.

She reminded drivers to bring the vehicle keys with them, even for quick drop-offs.

“We’re committed to the safety of drivers and the communities where we deliver,” an Amazon spokesman said. “We are also working with our delivery partners to raise awareness of this issue and to reinforce best safety practices for drivers.”

The Dallas Police Department is asking the public to help locate Ford with any information available by calling 214-671-3404.
