The Paradise Valley Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Unit is following up on this crime.

Police officials say locking your doors 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 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.

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