Away from the city center, it used to be a quiet and safe place to live. A neighborhood affected by these crimes is Peccole Ranchwhich is located near Sahara and Fort Apache region. Another is queensridgelocated nearby Charleston and Fort Apache.

Several homes have been hit by burglaries in this neighborhood lately. And although there is a security post at the entrance to the queensridge neighborhood, Metro thinks the tunnel system is to blame. Burglars have easy access to the neighborhood through the tunnels and a quick escape with the stolen goods.

The suspects are believed to have parked in Peccole Ranch, South of Queensridge. And used the tunnel system to cross Charleston and access Queensridge Estates.

Car burglaries have been reported as well as home invasions. And recently, in Queensridge Estates, it got even worse. Two elderly residents are in critical condition today as a burglary led to the couple’s torture, including the elderly woman’s near drowning.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department approached residents with cameras on their homes. The footage helped identify movement patterns of some of the suspects. It seems no matter where we live Vegashaving a home security system is no longer negotiable.
