PEORIA, Ariz. -- Peoria police are asking for the public’s help solving a recent string of vehicle burglaries at Valley churches.

Authorities say the suspect or suspects in the case have been breaking into vehicles, stealing the garage door opener, and then heading to the home of the vehicle owner to burglarize their residence.

In one instance, a credit card was stolen from a vehicle and used at a local business.

Surveillance video from the store captured a woman standing at the counter.

The Peoria Police Department is investigating the case in conjunction with the Surprise Police Department, Phoenix Police Department, and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

Anyone who can identify the woman seen on the surveillance video, or who may have additional information about the case, is asked to call the Peoria Police Department at 623-773-8311 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
