In a shocking incident over the Mother’s Day weekend, a Glendale homeowner had an unnerving encounter with a suspected burglar who had been hiding in her home’s ceiling.
The alarming event unfolded when the intruder fell through the ceiling into a typically unused bedroom.
Linda Williams brings us the chilling story live from Glendale.
Following the unexpected incident where the burglar crashed through the ceiling, authorities and the homeowner conducted a thorough search of the house, aided by police canines, in an attempt to locate the intruder.
Despite their efforts, they were unable to find him, leading them to assume that he had managed to escape.
However, to their surprise, it was later discovered that the suspect was still inside the home.
Evidence of his entry and exit path was evident, as he had pulled himself back up and traversed the beams to make his way out, causing destruction along the way.
He had concealed himself in a corner where the canines were unable to detect him.
Despite the police department’s search efforts, they were unable to locate him.
This incident has resulted in a hectic and emotional weekend for Lisa Mullins, the homeowner in North Phoenix.
Located near 51st Avenue and Thunderbird, her house was searched three times by both Phoenix and Glendale police with the assistance of canines.
However, the burglar eluded capture, leaving Mullins and her husband perplexed.
Frustrated and tired, they decided to call it a night and went to sleep early Sunday morning.
Around 1:30 a.m., their peaceful slumber was abruptly interrupted by a loud thumping noise and subsequent sounds of something rolling off.
Startled, Mullins and her husband quickly reacted, rushing to investigate the source of the disturbance.
Confused and concerned for their safety, they contacted the police once again to report the incident.
Despite the extensive search efforts conducted by both Glendale and Phoenix police, the elusive burglar had managed to stay hidden in the attic, evading detection by the canines.
Mullins recounted her harrowing experience, sharing her fear and disbelief at the intruder’s ability to remain concealed.
In a daring escape early Sunday morning, the suspect resorted to kicking off the wind turbine from the roof of Mullins’ house to create a diversion and make his getaway.
Mullins expressed her deep fear, still shaken by the traumatic events that unfolded in her own home.
The incident has left her feeling vulnerable and afraid.
The police are actively investigating the case, working to apprehend the suspect and provide reassurance to the affected homeowners.
As the investigation unfolds, the community remains on alert, hoping for a swift resolution to this unsettling ordeal.
