Police searching for those breaking into homes under construction

News

 ST. GEORGE (News4Utah) – Police want to know who broke into homes under construction in St. George.  

“An officer arrived on scene and gathered evidence,” said Officer Lona Trombley with St. George Police Department.

Police say the call came Monday morning after light fixtures and electrical equipment were discovered missing from inside the new homes in the SunRiver community.

“In total with the damage to the doors, it was about 3,000 dollars,” said Trombley.

No arrests have been made. 

“We are still investigating. We live in a wonderful community where our citizens are very helpful, and if you have any information or you saw anything suspicious in this area during this time, just give us a call,” said Trombley.

Police say as St. George continues to grow, construction is booming, and so are thefts at construction sites. They ask everyone to take precautions. 

“We just encourage you to invest that bit of extra money into security cameras or a security guard on site. If you live in the area where construction is happening, pay attention to who is there, or what time they are there. If you see something suspicious, give us a call. It doesn’t hurt to have us come out there. You could very well be preventing a burglary,” said Trombley.

Police ask anyone with information or tips on this case to call 435-627-4300.
