Car burglaries reported in Surprise and Peoria

Police are asking for the public's help locating burglary suspects breaking into cars in two West Valley cities.

Surprise police spokesman Mike Donovan said the suspects break into unlocked vehicles to steal purses and credit cards.

Donovan said in one case, the victim was pumping gas and the suspects waited for her to go inside to steal her purse.

The suspects have been seen walking through parking lots checking vehicle doors to see if they're unlocked and if they have any valuable items inside.

The suspects have used personal information from two vehicle burglaries to purchase items using the victims' information.

Donovan said the suspects are also linked to similar crimes in Peoria.

Surprise police are asking anyone who has information to call (623)222-4341, or to remain anonymous call Silent Witness at (480) WITNESS.
