San Juan Residents Targeted By Holiday Thiefs

This holiday season, a Valley police department is adding more eyes across their neighborhoods to watch out for those that make a habit of piggy backing on resident’s Christmas cheer just to make a quick buck. It seems like San Juan residents are becoming an easy target.

The Alaniz family has called San Juan home for more than 20 years. Omar Alaniz tells FOX2 that he feels quite safe here, but he does recall a moment as a child when the Grinch stole Christmas.

It’s around this time of year, when residents across the Valley decorate their front lawns with lights, Christmas trees, and even inflatable Santas and snowmen.

But is it worth it? Is it worth spending hundreds of dollars only for thieves to run off with your decorations in the middle of the night?

San Juan Police say they will increase surveillance in at least five neighborhoods this holiday season to prevent theft.

Pamela Cervantes says her family is lucky not meet the Grinch.How do they keep them away? They’ve installed surveillance cameras around the house.

So far, seven cases have been reported to the San Juan Police Department, but that number could rise in the upcoming weeks before Christmas.

If you witness this type of crime, you are urged to call The San Juan Police Crime Stoppers at (956) 283-TIPS (8477). You could earn a cash reward if it leads to an arrest and conviction.
