A home invasion occurred in Carefree. Because the homeowners were home at the time, a robbery early Thursday morning at a home in the east block of Nonchalant Avenue is technically considered a home invasion even though there was no confrontation with the homeowners, who were asleep at the time. In fact, the homeowners were unaware they had been robbed until around 8:30 a.m. on Thursday when they called MCSO.
The robbers, without waking the homeowners, removed valuables, along with keys to the Expedition, that they also stole. This home in the east block of Nonchalant Avenue in Carefree was the target of an invasion robbery on July 28 during the early morning hours.
According to Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, the victims went to bed around midnight on July 27 and, although they have an alarm system installed it was not set. Their greenish-blue Ford Expedition parked in the driveway still had the garage remote control inside. The suspect(s) broke a window on the driver’s side of the vehicle, took the remote and opened the garage door. This allowed them to gain access and begin the Carefree home invasion. Apparently, the door inside of the garage leading to the inside of the home had no lock set.
The robbers, without waking the homeowners, removed valuables. They also took the keys to their expedition and stole it. MCSO District Commander Lt. Rich Burden said there are a number of things people can do to protect themselves from becoming victims. Some are more obvious than others. One includes not leaving garage door openers in vehicles while parked in front of their garage.
Locking the interior door from the garage to the rest of the home was another suggestion. Also, activating a home alarm while asleep. Burden said leaving a few lights on the outside is another inexpensive deterrent. This can dissuade burglars who generally prefer to work in the dark.
If anyone should happen to see a greenish-blue Ford Expedition, license number 616 LWU, with a broken driver’s side window, contact MCSO at 602-876-1011.
