The Prescott Valley Police Department is asking for the public's help in solving numerous vehicle burglaries in the area of Stetson Drive on the town's north side between the hours of 9 p.m.-2 a.m. this past Tuesday night.
PVPD officers are also reporting that from 9 p.m.-midnight this past Wednesday they received similar reports of burglaries in the vicinity of Wren Drive.
In all, police say 20 burglaries were reported along these streets. In addition to the burglaries, the suspect or suspects attempted to light two of the vehicles on fire from the inside, officers added, causing upwards of $1,000 in damages.
"We believe the suspect or suspects are possibly juveniles who are walking the neighborhood at night and checking car doors to see if they are unlocked," PVPD Sgt. Brandon Bonney said in a news release. "If they find an unlocked car, they are taking any small items they can use, sell or have any value."
Bonney added that the suspect or suspects have also shot holes into the glass of cars with BB guns.
Those with information about these crimes, or those who see any suspicious activity in a Prescott Valley neighborhood, should call PVPD at 772-9267 and speak with an officer.
Residents may also call Yavapai County Silent Witness anonymously with any information by calling 1-800-932-3232.
