Residents with security cameras in The Villages at Rancho El Dorado and Maricopa Manor subdivisions are asked by Maricopa police to review their footage for any suspicious activity during the week of Jan. 23 in the wake of nine incidents of slashed car tires.
If unusual activity is apparent on the videos, the Police Department asks residents to share the information.
The incidents are believed to have occurred from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m. MPD said it has since increased patrols in those subdivisions.
Monica Williams, Police Department public information officer, said the acts appear to be random. She said about 20% of Maricopa’s property crimes are criminal-damage cases.
She added that the police Criminal Investigation Unit is working several leads on the tire slashings. No arrests have yet been made.
Residents with information can contact the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 520-568–3673.
