Crime Trackers: Thief caught on camera burglarizing Oro Valley home

Posted: Updated:

ORO VALLEY- An Oro Valley family was burglarized, with the thief taking in excess of $35,000 worth of items.

Most burglaries occur in broad daylight and usually the thieves are never seen.  However, Oro Valley Police detectives have a case where the thief was caught on camera and he also left some forensic evidence.

Lt. Kara Riley told News 4 Tucson, “It is extremely concerning especially the fact that it’s during the day the fact that it’s so brazen.”

Wearing a Yankees baseball cap, and sporting a "Just Do It " t-shirt, a man broke into a home in the La Cholla Air Park neighborhood.

Oro Valley police need your help to identify him. They described him as, Hispanic in his late 40s or early 50s.

The surveillance video showed, on February 20 at 10:13 am, the suspect knocked at the front door and rang the doorbell.  No one answered, so we went around to the back patio where another camera captured him at 10:14 a.m.

At 10:15, he grabbed a rock and broke a window. He even pulled a piece of furniture to the window and climbed inside at 10:16.

While inside, he went through the house and he came out the front door at 10:17.

Lt. Riley said “He then exits out of the residence with jewelry and other valued items. And loads his vehicle up through the front door.”

He goes back into the house and grabbed another load, and walked back out to his vehicle at 10:19.  He was in and out in less than 10 minutes.

The surveillance video also showed a brown or tan SUV.  Lt. Riley said she hopes somebody will recognize it.

If you have information call the Oro Valley Police at 520-229-4900, 911, or 88-CRIME.
