Between the afternoon of Aug. 29 and 7 a.m. Aug. 30, unknown suspects forcibly entered the garage of a home in the 37000 block of Blue Tank Trail, Wickenburg, and stole three off-road type vehicles, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office reported.

The burglary was initially discovered by a landscaper, who found a broken window in the garage and reported the concern to the home owner, currently out of town. YCSO deputies examined the garage and confirmed a broken window and a baseball-sized rock on the garage floor apparently used to break the window.
