Dallas police work with homeless shelter to ID chronic offenders

Tanya Ragan's company, Wildcat Management, handles the old restaurant building at 807 Park St. in downtown Dallas. The restaurant closed awhile back, the windows are boarded up and, if you're interested in the property, you might have to step around human waste to get in the door.

The problem? The building is a block from The Bridge, the city's homeless shelter and assistance center. Ragan said the shelter's open-door policy attracts criminals who eat, shower and get health care there and then hit the streets to prey on downtown.
