Paradise Valley residence falls victim to burglary

Paradise Valley Police

A Paradise Valley home fell victim to a burglary sometime during the month of May, according to police officials.

At 2:46 p.m. on May 16, the Paradise Valley Police Department was notified of a discovered residential burglary in the 4700 block of E. Valley Vista Lane.

Upon arrival, officers spoke to the property manager who stated the house-cleaner (no longer on location) had discovered the burglary. Some time since May 4, an unknown subject(s) forced entry into the residence through the master bedroom French doors. There is unknown loss at this time, police stated.

The Paradise Valley Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Unit will be following up on this crime. Locking doors can prevent a burglar from gaining entry to a home. Using alarms usually reduces the amount of time burglars are inside the 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, the police stated.

Any residents with information regarding this burglary are urged to call the Paradise Valley Police Department at 480-948-7410. Do not hesitate to call the police department if anything suspicious is seen.
