Paradise Valley police report weekend burglary

The Paradise Valley Police Department responded to a window alarm in the 5700 block of E. Sanna Street. Sunday, Sept. 4.

Upon arrival, officers discovered a shattered bathroom window with the window completely removed from the house, according to a press release.

Officers cleared the residence, found no one inside, and were unable to determine if any suspect(s) entered the residence or if any property was missing. The alarm was active and sounded loudly when officers cleared the residence. Patrol officers canvassed the area and processed the scene for evidence, police officials say.

The Paradise Valley Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Unit will be following up on this crime. Police officials encourage residents to lock their doors as it can prevent a burglar from gaining entry to your home.

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 intruders to rush, which often leads to mistakes and additional evidence left, enhancing the chance of catching the suspect and recovering any stolen property, the release states.

If you have any information regarding this burglary, please call the Paradise Valley Police Department at 480-948-7410.
