On June 8th, 2018 at 1:37 a.m., a male suspect broke into the Scottsdale Mail Services business located at 1418 N Scottsdale Rd.  The suspect first attempted to make entry through the rear door of the business by firing 3 handgun rounds into the deadbolt but was unsuccessful.  He eventually made entry through the front door of the business by other means.burg-suspect2_180608

The male burglar stole a guitar, an amplifier, a key making machine and a computer tablet.  He then started a fire inside of the business prior to fleeing the area on foot.  Fortunately, the fire was extinguished prior to any significant damage to the victim property or other businesses.

The suspect is described as a black or Hispanic male, black hair with dreadlocks, 5’10 to 6’0 tall, medium build.  He was last seen wearing a gray LA Dodgers baseball cap, black leather jacket, blue jeans, gloves and possibly possessing a 9mm handgun.burg-suspect1_180608
