Vehicle burglary
A police officer responded Oct. 5 to the 6800 block of N. 48th Street on a vehicle burglary. The vehicle’s owner told the officer that her purse had been left on the floorboard in her SUV parked in front of the residence. The following day she was notified by the bank that her purse was found in the garbage at the bank. When she checked her account, several charges had been made using her bank card.

A theft was reported to have occurred Oct. 6 at the 6100 block of N. 33rd Street. The homeowner came into the police department and told the officer that he had just discovered a Rolex watch was missing from his home. He stated that the last time that he had seen the watch was several months ago, he continued to tell the officer that his wife was missing jewelry as well. It is unknown whom the suspect may be because they have had several cleaning services in their home.

Recovered stolen auto
An officer on patrol in the area of the Echo Canyon parking lot Oct. 7 discovered a stolen vehicle when the license plate reader on his patrol car alerted him of the stolen vehicle. The vehicle was recovered and the owner notified about the recovery. The car was stolen out of California.

A theft was reported to have occurred at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort Oct. 7. Per the office supervisor, a male guest used a credit card to stay at the resort but it was declined. The guest called his credit card company which authorized the transaction. While staying at the resort, the male charged more items which were declined by the credit card company so an employee of the Plaza went to inform the male that the additional charges would need to be paid. He told the hotel staff that someone was coming with money to take care of the bill. When the staff returned to his room, the male had vacated the room.

Business burglary    
Officers were dispatched Oct. 10 to the Scottsdale Cosmetic Center on a burglary alarm at that location. While checking the building, a broken window was observed by the officers. When the responding party arrived, a check of the clinic was made. It was determined that nothing appeared to have been stolen from the clinic.
