Mesa teens caught

Thanks to the public and media partners, Peoria police last week made two arrests of a pair of Mesa teens for burglary.


Excellent work done by the detectives and officers. Thank you for keeping us safe. — @KirstenHall


Youthful suspect

Police in Surprise are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a person who is suspected of attempting to rob the Sun West Credit Union located near Bell Road and Parkview Place. The suspect is described as a white male in his teens with light colored hair and pale skin. He was last seen wearing a white polo shirt and tan shorts.


This is a serious event. This kid could have been shot and killed if there was a customer or security guard in the bank with a gun. — Lonnie Washington


He looks about 12, he must be desperate. He is not even covering himself up. — Micheal Allen


He is old enough to know right and wrong. Rob a bank go to prison, not jail. — Dwight Reed
