A Surprise woman is hoping to get answers after her house, as well as several others in her neighborhood, were vandalized and burglarized.

Misty Mesic took to Facebook on Thursday to warn others in the area of 163rd Avenue and Jomax Road about four homes that were broken into.

According to Mesic, the “bad guys” (as she calls them), have driven through fences and garage doors to gain access to houses.

She explained that not only have they done a lot of damage to homes, they’ve also stolen a lot of expensive items including cars, guns, ammunition, jewelry, clothing, checkbooks and even a boat.

Luckily Mesic wasn’t home at the time her home was burglarized but was able to catch the thieves rummaging through her personal belongings on wireless camera.

Surprise Police confirmed Mesic's break-in is among three others that occurred on June 16. Two of the burglaries took place in the unincorporated portion of Maricopa County. 

Surprise Police are working with the Maricopa County's Sheriff's Office to arrest the burglars behind the incidents.

Surprise Police are asking for the public's help identifying the suspects. Anyone with information about the pair's whereabouts is urged to call Surprise Police at 602-222-TIPS and reference incident #170604000.
