Crime Stats -- April 2020
The Sheriff’s Department stopped providing us data on their service in October of 2016. Our former MAC Delegate, Teresa SItz, combs through the media reports each month and sifts out the crime stats for Wonder Valley. These are unofficial statistics, subject to a small margin of error. We have no data for 2017 or 2019.
The 2020 statistics include 10 calls for burglary -- an uptick; 6 calls for various kinds of theft; 4 calls for trespassing; 8 calls for illegal off-highway vehicle activity, among others. One of the burglary victims noted OHV tracks on their property.
Please keep an eye out on your property. Report crimes to the Sheriff’s Department, and always ask for an incident number.
