The Paradise Valley Police Department responded to two residential burglary alarms on the night of Jan. 23, according to officials.

The first, at 8:45 p.m.was in the area of the 4900 block of E. Beryl Avenue.  Upon arrival the officers found multiple unsecured doors to the residence. Officers checked the residence but found no suspects.

They they contacted the homeowner who stated various items of jewelry had been stolen, according to officials.

The homeowner also confirmed the residence had been left unsecured, police stated.

Secondly, at 9:21 p.m. the PV police responded to a residential burglary alarm at a residence in the 5000 block of E. Cochise Road. Upon arrival officers found that someone had forced entry and ransacked the residence, stated officials.

Officers checked the residence but found no suspects. They had then contacted the homeowner who stated various items of jewelry had been stolen.

Patrol officers completed a neighborhood canvass for the suspects and spoke with neighbors at each burglary location.

“Locking residential doors can prevent a burglar from gaining entry into a home,” stated police. “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 either burglary, are urged to call the Paradise  Valley Police Department at 480-948-7410.
