Jewelry has been stolen from a Paradise Valley home after a burglar forced entry to a window in the back of the home on Nov. 1, according to police officials.

At 6:32 p.m. on Nov. 1, the Paradise Valley Police Department responded to a theft in the 5400 block of east Lincoln Drive.

When officers arrived on scene, they observed forced entry to a window near the rear door of the residential structure. The victim reported multiple items of jewelry missing 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 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, according to police.

Anyone with information regarding this burglary is urged to call the Paradise Valley Police Department at 480-948-7410.
