The Paradise Valley Police Department responded to two residential burglary calls on Tuesday, Jan. 12, officials stated.

The first, at 2:46 p.m. on Jan. 12, officers were dispatched to a residential burglary report at a residence in the 6800 block of north 47th Street.

The victim told officers she was away from the home between 10 a.m.-12 p.m.; during that time, at least one unknown suspect attempted to force entry to her home. It appears the suspect did not gain entry and no loss was discovered, officials stated. An alarm was in use at this residence.

Following, at 3:16 p.m. on Jan. 12, officers were dispatched to a second residential burglary report at a residence in the 4500 block of E. McDonald Drive. The victim stated this residence is vacant, and sometime between Jan. 8 and the time of the call, an unknown suspect forced entry to the home.

At least one suspect appeared to be living in the residence and had damaged the residence while occupying it, officials stated. This residence does not have an alarm, according to a police report.

The Paradise Valley Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Unit will be following up on these crimes.

“Locking your doors can prevent a burglar from gaining entry to your home,” the police department advises in a press release. “Using alarms usually reduces the amount of time burglars are inside your house and the amount of property they have time to steal. It also causes them to rush which often leads to mistakes and additional evidence being left enhancing the chance of catching the suspect and recovering any stolen property.”

Any residents with information regarding these burglaries should call the Paradise Valley Police Department at 480-948-7410. Do not hesitate to call the police if you see anything suspicious in your neighborhood.
