A Yavapai County Sheriff's Deputy was dispatched to a burglary Wednesday at the "Oak Creek Valley Medical Clinic" Village of Oak Creek. The office manager called after finding a rear door open when she arrived. Office keys were missing and lights were on inside. They are typically off when business is closed.
The manager showed deputies an examination table in a patient room that had been made up as a bed, indicating that someone had slept there. A computer, monitor and keyboard were missing from the business office and two sandwiches from the refrigerator had been eaten. The front door to the clinic, which requires a key to unlock from the inside, was not secured. A rock had been placed on the mat outside to prop the door open while moving the stolen property.
Based on the evidence, deputies determined suspect was likely locked in the business when the building was closed Tuesday. Using the keys, the suspect was able to unlock doors and remove a computer from the office. The suspect is also thought to be a man since the toilet seat in the restroom had been left up.
Anyone with information about this burglary is urged to contact YCSO at (928) 771-3260, or Yavapai Silent Witness at (800) 932-3232.
