A Paradise Valley home was broken into by using a rock to break a rear glass door, according to police officials.

At 9:07 p.m. on May 7, the Paradise Valley Police Department was notified of a residential burglary call in the 6200 block of N. 47th Place.

Upon arrival, officers discovered that an unknown subject used a rock from the yard to break the rear glass door and then the suspect unlawfully entered the home through the rear door, and at the time of the press release, it appears nothing was taken, police officials stated.

The incident occurred between 6-9 p.m. on May 7. The home has an alarm, but it was set to “stand by” during the time of the break-in, and therefore did not activate.

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 residential homes. Using alarms usually reduces the amount of time burglars are inside a house, and the amount of property they have time to steal, according to police.

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 this burglary are urged to call the Paradise Valley Police Department at 480-948-7410. Do not hesitate to call the police if something suspicious is seen.
