On December 23, 2012, at 10:19 am, officers responded to the Beth El Mennonite Church located at 4625 Ranch Drive regarding a vehicle break-in.


According to the victim, following the service, he returned to his vehicle in the church parking lot.  He noticed that the passenger window had been broken.  When checking the interior of his vehicle, he found that his garage door opener and vehicle registration had been stolen. The victim immediately called police to report the break-in.


Knowing the suspects had access to the victim’s home address from the vehicle registration and their garage door opener officers were immediately dispatched to the victim’s residence. Upon arrival, they found the victim’s garage door open and the victim’s blue, 2004 Honda Element (Co 430RXE) stolen from the garage.


During a complete search of the residence, no suspects were located although it was found that several items of value were taken from the residence to include a handmade violin.


Several credit cards belonging to the victim were also stolen and immediately used at Home Depot, Best Buy and DSW Shoe store by the suspects.


Attached are still photographs of the suspects using the stolen cards at Home Depot and Best Buy.
