Arizona police investigate rash of car burglaries
CREATED Jun. 23, 2013
PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - The Peoria Police Department is warning churchgoers in the Valley about burglars following a rash of vehicle break-ins at church parking lots.
Police say there have been several cases in which the suspects take the garage door opener after breaking into vehicles parked in the church lots. The burglars then have easy access to the homes of the car owners.
Police spokeswoman Amanda Jacinto tells KPHO that in one of the incidents, surveillance video captured the use of a stolen credit card at a local business.
Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the woman shown in the surveillance image.
Peoria police are working with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office as well as the Phoenix and Surprise police departments in hopes of cracking the case.
