The Prescott Valley Police Department is investigating recent burglaries to homes and vehicles that have occurred throughout the Prescott Valley area. Authorities say almost all of the vehicles targeted and victimized were left unsecured and unlocked. In addition, the recent residential burglaries occurred when doors and windows were left open or unlocked.
