CHINO VALLEY - Police here recently made arrests in a burglary ring, and now they are asking for people who believe they were victims to come forward and claim items they've recovered.
Police arrested three minors in connection with a month-long series of property crimes, including 22 burglaries, eight criminal damage reports, and four stolen vehicles, Chino Valley Police Lt. Vince Schaan said.
The three suspects are a 14-year-old and two 17-year-olds, all from Chino Valley. Schaan said they admitted to committing the crimes, and, he added, police are asking the County Attorney to charge the 17-year-olds as adults.
Police have recovered most of the stolen property, Schaan said, and they still have a good deal of property that has been unclaimed.
The police will be circulating a flyer to residents in Parkside Village, Highlands Ranch, Granite Creek Apartments, Vista Grande Estates and some nearby residences and neighborhoods.
Some of the items police are holding include guns, jewelry, and electronic devices, as well as smaller items.
The flyer asks people who are missing things that may have been stolen to contact civilian officer Vicky Ferguson or a detective at 928-636-4223, extension 2 to set up an appointment.
