Zone 5-Valencia had sixteen Part-1 Crimes reported during the past week. The criminal incidents included grand theft autos, residential burglary and vehicle burglaries from various areas.

Three grand theft autos occurred in various areas including the parking structure at the mall and 25800 block of Tournament Rd. Vehicles stolen were a Ford Ranger, Dodge Dart, and an Audi A4. I am happy to report that all three vehicles were located within 48 hours of being reported stolen

. A residential burglary occurred on the 23800 block of Arroyo Park Drive between the hours of 12:00 am and 1:00 pm. Victim stated a large amount of cash was stolen from the bedroom area. Entry and exit is unknown. There was no evidence of forced entry made to the apartment. A second burglary occurred at 24000 block of Cornelia Place between the hours 7:00 am and 2:30 pm. Entry was made via the rear sliding glass door which was left unlocked. Items stolen were four lap tops, jewelry and money which were located throughout the house. No suspects have been arrested and the investigation is currently ongoing.

There were three vehicle burglaries which occurred at the parking structures in the Portofino Apartment Complex between the hours of 6:00 pm and 7:00 am. Victims reported the rear passenger window had been smashed by an unknown object. Items stolen were an Apple IPOD, GPS, sunglasses and loose change all which were visible in the center console area.

Please keep vehicle burglaries and thefts down. Do not leave items visible in your vehicle! Take all personal belongings with you when you exit your vehicle or secure items in locked trunks. Do not leave items underneath vehicle seats or cover them with clothing apparel or blankets. Thieves know this technique.

Remember to roll up all windows and lock doors before walking away from your vehicle. Keep theft down. Take careful steps to not become a victim. Be mindful of your surroundings. Do not leave personal items unattended in public areas, such as gyms, restaurants, shopping cart areas or counter tops of businesses.

If you see any suspicious activity, please call the Sheriff’s Station immediately at 661-255-1121.
