On last week, Tuesday, June 5, the Vehicle Crimes Investigation Unit (VCIU) responded to reported burglaries where surveillance video "showed several individuals checking vehicles in the parking lot to see if they are unlocked". Items were taken from several of the vehicles, including a gun, credit cards, phones, money, and more.

Sheriff Mancuso again reminds residents to remember to lock their vehicles.

Anyone with information regarding the burglaries can contact lead VCIU Detective Hollan Dyer at 602.6836.
