PEORIA -- Peoria police arrested four people suspected of stealing pool vacuums from homes in the West Valley.
Between June 1 and Dec. 28, numerous pool vacuums were stolen from homes in Peoria and Glendale and sold on Craigslist for one-fourth of the retail price, according to Peoria police spokesman Mike Tellef.
Tellef said approximately 60 pool vacuums were stolen in Peoria for a total of more than $27,000.
After an undercover purchase of a pool vacuum, police units and the U.S. Secret Service recovered several thousands of dollars in counterfeit U.S. currency, drugs and 27 pool vacuums at a home near Thunderbird Road and 79th Avenue.
Elie Haddad, 47, Patricia Ann Haddad, 42, Dominic Randall Haddad, 19, and Sean Michael Ryan, 21, were arrested and booked on 19 felony counts. Charges include trafficking in stolen property, possession of a forged instrument, possession of stolen property and drug violations.
To protect your pool vacuum from theft or make it easier to recover, Tellef suggested engraving your home address on it.
