Paradise Valley Police

The Paradise Valley Police Department is looking for two burglars who reportedly stole landscaping items from the bed of a truck, and pointed a gun at witnesses, according to police officials.

Around 11:47 a.m. on July 29, the Paradise Valley Police Department responded to the 9000 block of North Martingale Road in reference to a report of a vehicle burglary that just occurred.

Two males took items from the bed of a landscaper’s truck that was parked on the street.

One of the landscapers working for the owner of the truck yelled at the subjects as they were leaving, and the landscaper reportedly had a gun pointed at him by one of the subjects, according to police.

One subject was described as a white male around the age of 40, wearing a white t-shirt and had a medium build, the police report stated.

The second subject was a black male, about 36-38-years-old wearing a black t-shirt and blue shorts.

The black male was driving and the two of them left in a green colored Dodge Caravan, eastbound on Doubletree Ranch Road, according to police.

The white male was seen taking the landscaping items, while the Black male was sitting in the driver seat of the Caravan.

The black male was the subject who reportedly pointed the handgun at the landscaper victim, the police said.

Several gas powered lawn equipment items were taken.

At this time the subjects have not been identified or located.

Any residents with information are urged to contact the Paradise Valley Police Department at 480-948-7410.
