RESIDENTIAL BURGLARIES

Over the past few months, the City of Fountain Valley has experienced a rise in daytime residential burglaries. In the majority of these burglaries, suspects have made entry through a rear sliding door or window. Rear sliding doors have been pried as well as porcelain chips being used to shatter the glass. Once entry has been made, suspects have removed personal items consisting of cash, jewelry and electronic components. On a few occasions, suspicious subjects have been observed prior to or during the burglary. Unfortunately, the Police Department was not notified. During one incident, suspicious subjects were observed in the driveway of the victim residence. These subjects were described as two male African Americans, mid 20's to 30, driving a blue sport utility vehicle. One of the subjects was further described as wearing a baggy gray sweatshirt, blue jeans and possibly diamond earrings. We all have a part to play in keeping Fountain Valley safe. Please report suspicious activity immediately by dialing 9-1-1. Anyone with information should contact the Fountain Valley Police Department Investigations Bureau at (714)593-4485.
