Two West Valley residents are facing felony burglary charges after allegedly breaking into a vehicle April 7 in the Santarra neighborhood in Buckeye, police said.
Edward James Scott, 44, of Goodyear, and Norma Jean Gillespie, 36, of Buckeye, were allegedly ransacking the inside of a vehicle parked in a driveway located in the 25200 block of West Pleasant Lane, police said.
The homeowner reported seeing two individuals inside her vehicle, and believed them to be attempting to remove the stereo system from the dashboard before fleeing the scene in another car, police said.
Officers arrived on location and obtained a description of the suspects and the vehicle, which was later used by a patrol officer to identify them, police said.
Scott and Gillespie were arrested and booked into the Maricopa County Fourth Avenue Jail on felony vehicle burglary charges. The property that was taken from the vehicle was recovered at the scene, police said.
