An officer was dispatched Oct. 18 to the 6100 block of N. 33rd Street on a vehicle burglary complaint. The complainant told the officer he had gone bike riding with his daughter and left the garage door open and his car parked unlocked in front of the garage. When he returned, he observed an older model light green Toyota SUV parked in his driveway and a male in his car. When he approached the male, he fled in the SUV. Identification badges and vehicle identification papers were stolen from his car.


Officers responded Oct. 18 to the medical plaza at the 7100 block of Lincoln on a burglary complaint. A physician arrived at his office and discovered two of the windows had been broken and entry made into his office. While checking the office, nothing appeared to be missing. The glass window sensor alarms were activated but it was later determined the alarms were not monitored by an alarm company.


Officers that responded to the prior business burglary Oct. 18 at the medical plaza on Lincoln Drive located another office that had been broken into and ransacked. The doctor that owns the business responded to the scene. While walking through his office nothing appeared to have been taken. A deadlock on the door was left unsecured and the office doesn’t have an alarm.


A resident came into the police department Oct. 20 to report that during the prior evening he observed an SUV enter his circle driveway and stop. The homeowner didn’t recognize the vehicle but heard suspects out of their vehicle. The following day he was notified by the mail carrier that his mailbox had been partially pried open but that it didn’t appear as if the suspects were able to gain entry into the mailbox.


A police officer responded Oct. 22 to the 7000 block of N. Desert Fairways in reference to a theft of services complaint. A cab driver picked up a female and drove her to the residence in Paradise Valley. When the female was dropped off she left the area without paying for her fare.
