An officer was dispatched Oct. 11 to the 5500 block of Orchid Lane on a vehicle burglary complaint. The complainant told the officer his son had parked the vehicle fronting his residence the prior evening and the next day when he checked the vehicle, a gun had been stolen from the glove compartment. He told the officer the vehicle had been left unlocked during the night.

A vehicle burglary was reported to have occurred Oct. 11 at the 5600 block of E. Horseshoe Road. The owner of the vehicle told the officer her purse was stolen from her SUV sometime during the night. The purse and most of its contents were found on the ground near where the SUV was parked. Her phone was missing but was later recovered by using a “Find my phone” application. The only items noticed missing were some bills from the purse and the cover to her cell phone.

Officers responded to a burglary from a construction site Oct. 15 at the 5300 block of N. Wilkinson Drive. The contractor arrived at the residence and noticed some of the cabinet doors opened and a tool box open. When he checked the interior of the home, some shower faucets were missing. The owner of the toolbox was contacted but he was unsure of just what tools were taken.

Two cases of identity theft were reported to the police during the previous week. In both cases, the complainants filed their income taxes and were notified by the IRS that their taxes had already been filed.

A vehicle burglary was reported at the Mountain View Medical Plaza on Oct. 15. The vehicle’s owner stated he had parked his truck in the parking lot in the morning and when he returned to it in the afternoon, he discovered his truck had been entered but nothing appeared to have been stolen.
