Some Marana neighborhoods have seen an increase in vehicle break-ins.

The Marana Police Department is investigating, but the majority of the property stolen has been from vehicles that were let unlocked. 

Neighbors that were targeted include Continental Reserve, Continental Ranch, and Gladden Farms.

In the past 11 days, 14 cars have been broken into. That is above the average for this time of year.

Crime statistics show an increase in vehicle break-ins in October, November and December of 2016 as well. 

Police have arrested multiple suspects in connection with those thefts. 

Marana PD is asking that residents be vigilant and report suspicious activity.

Residents can also reduce their chance of being a victim by always locking their car doors and not leaving property inside their vehicle. 

If you have any information regarding these crimes you can call 520-382-2000 or 88-CRIME.
