Sedona Business Burglaries and Thefts from Vehicles

Sedona City MapSedona AZ (November 12, 2013) – Recently there have been two reported burglaries of Sedona retail business establishments. One burglary occurred in the 1500 block of West State Route 89A, and an attempted burglary occurred in the 200 block of State Route 179. While it is not known if the crimes were committed by the same suspects, both establishments sell clothing apparel, both most likely occurred during night-time hours, and the method of gaining entry was similar.

Business operators are encouraged to report any usual or suspicious activity to the Police Department and always keep alarm systems in proper working order. It is important that the police department has current emergency contact information on file for all businesses. Contact information can be updated by calling the Police Department Communications Center at (928) 282-3100, faxing the information to the Communications Center at (928) 282-0622, or bringing the information to the front counter at the station during weekday business hours.

The Sedona Police Department is also informing the community of a number of thefts from vehicles. While some of the thefts occurred from locked vehicles, most of the thefts were from unlocked vehicles. There is no specific pattern to the crimes but the majority of the thefts have occurred during nighttime hours in west Sedona between Coffee Pot Drive and Upper Loop Road.

The Sedona Police would like to remind residents and visitors that effective crime prevention habits included reporting suspicious or unusual activity in your neighborhood, locking your vehicle and removing any valuable items from them. Sedona police officers and detectives have been following various leads and are confident that suspects will be identified.

Anyone having information about these thefts is encouraged to contact the Police Department at (928) 282-3100.

The Police Department has an active Community Watch Program which is focused on enhancing crime prevention and neighborhood safety awareness. Information about creating a community awareness team in your neighborhood can be obtained by contacting Officer Jackie McQuaid at (928)-282-3100 or jmcquaid@sedonaaz.gov.

Remember by working together, we can ensure a safer Sedona for all.

    When you put this stuff in the papers it isn’t good for business so stop it.

    I’ll never advertise with you because you undermine the city.

  3. Jack says:

    @PADDY guess what every city has crime and it is BEST for us to be aware of it. To pretend it doesn’t exists only empowers and endorses it. If you think this paper undermines the city you should watch the city council meetings. Your city staff and council undermines you all the time. Guess what? they say you don’t contribute anything to the city. How’s that for undermining? If I had a business I advertise in a second with Sedona Eye. They are the only ones with honor, look they posted your comment. Your Red rock news won’t do that.

  4. Jack says:

    Forgot to mention that according to the RRN and the chamber, the chamber is the only one doing anything in this city, How’s that for undermining? The chamber and the RRN run the city. Now that is undermining. Sedona Eye is doing the fabulous job!

  5. Joe says:

    Bravo to Jack and boo to Paddy. Probably half the crimes going on here don’t see the light of day because they’re swept under the red rocks so as to not taint the absurd saintly image of Sedona.

    Jack is correct. The biggest deterrent to Sedona is the City Council, City Staff, and Red Rock News but only after the Chamber of Commerce aka the strings manipulating all of the above. Time to fire the source of Sedona’s problems. Do away with city government and their controlling special interests.

  6. Warren says:

    I think Paddy was being sarcastic.

  7. Tom Longo says:

    @Paddy…don’t know why you have a problem over this. The Sedona Police Department sent out a news release to RRN and the Sedona. I am sure their intent was to make businesses, shoppers and possibly the perpetrators aware of these occurances. This is the season when people are desperate enough to commit such crimes.

    I don’t really see any problem with it! Sedona Eye is always on the forefront in making sure that people in our area are well informed…which is EXACTLY what they are supposed to do!
