A residential construction site was broken into sometime between May 7-9, and had items stolen from inside, according to police officials.

At 6:41 a.m. on May 9, the Paradise Valley Police Department was notified of a discovered residential construction site burglary in the 7100 block of N. Quartz Mountain.

Upon arrival, officers spoke with the builders and determined that some time over the weekend, an unknown subject forced entry into the residence under construction and stole equipment that was stored inside, 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 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.
