Sheriff’s Crime Report

A residential burglary was reported in the 800 block of Greenridge Drive on Feb. 15 at 6:45 p.m. The victim told the deputy that while she was inside the master bedroom of her home, she heard a window shatter downstairs. After, she also heard an unknown person attempt to open the door to her locked master bedroom. The victim began shouting from inside the bedroom for the suspect to leave. She then heard two different voices running away from her bedroom door, which indicated two suspects were present.
Since the victim confronted the suspects quickly, she did not believe they had time to take anything from the home. The victim’s property did not have a surveillance system, so a detective canvassed the area and found one homeowner who said they would review their footage for suspicious activity.

A petty theft incident was reported in the 4700 block of Alminar Avenue on Feb. 16 at 2:44 p.m. The victim said that while he was gardening in the backyard of a home, his co-worker alerted him to two 30-year-old men stealing a tool from the bed of his work truck. The suspects then entered a white Toyota Sequoia and drove northbound on Alminar Avenue.
The victim’s truck bed did not have a camper shell and was opened and unlocked. The victim said only one item was stolen from his truck, which was a red Corona tree cutting tool. The co-worker said one of the suspects was wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt and the other was wearing a white sweatshirt.

An incident involving an unauthorized use of personal information was reported in the 900 block of Chehalem Road on Feb. 12 at 4 p.m. The victim was reviewing her personal information on creditkarma.com and discovered three unknown credit card accounts had been opened in August 2023, and Feb. 1 and Feb. 2. She also noticed that the suspect had made unauthorized purchases with the credit cards they opened. Purchases were made at Best Buy, Nordstrom and Lowe’s.
The victim contacted each bank to file a dispute and they informed her that the suspect had opened the credit cards using her social security number, home address and email address. She also contacted Best Buy, where an employee told her that the suspect purchased an Apple iPad and AirPods with the credit card they opened. The suspect then returned the items to Best Buy and received store credit.
The deputy asked the victim if she had received any phone calls or emails asking for her personal information. She said that she never received emails asking for personal information, only phone calls. However, she said she always knew they were scams and did not disclose information. The only person who had access to her personal information was her husband, but he did not open the credit cards.
