ST. GEORGE — Burglars nabbed multiple guns, cash and electronics from at least 10 vehicles in the Fiddlers Canyon area of Cedar City Tuesday.
The burglaries happened to cars parked in the neighborhood around E. Fiddlers Canyon Road. Police received 10 reports of stolen property from vehicles, but there could have been more, Cedar City Police Sgt. Jerry Womack said. The amount of property stolen from people’s cars is valued in the thousands of dollars.
Police believe the burglaries happened at night because most of the reports came in as people were getting up on their way to work or to the Pioneer Day parade.
All of the vehicles that were burglarized had their doors unlocked, Womack said. Police recommend locking all vehicles and keeping valuables out of cars.
“These kinds of crimes are what we call crimes of opportunity. Most (burglars) aren’t ambitious enough to go break a window, so if your car is open, they may go in. If it’s locked, they won’t.”
Police have no suspects or persons of interest for the burglaries. Anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity Monday night or early Tuesday morning is urged to call the Cedar City Police Department at 435-586-2956.
