Deputies were called to a vacant home in the Tuscany community near De Vall and Ramon Roads in Rancho Mirage at 1 a.m. on Thursday Oct. 4, regarding a possible burglary, sheriff’s officials reported.
When officers arrived they walked in and witnessed several men run out of the home leaving personal property behind.
A sheriff’s helicopter was deployed to help officers on the ground search for the suspects, but they were unable to locate the robbers.
The suspects are described as 18-20-years old males wearing baggy jeans. One man was a Hispanic male about 5’9″ tall with a thin build, Sgt. Dave Eichelt said.
Forensic team members arrived on scene a short time later to collect evidence.
“At this time we are not releasing any further information regarding this ongoing investigation,” Deputy Albert Martinez explained.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact the Palm Desert Sheriff Station at (760) 836-1600, or they can call anonymously at 760-341-STOP (7867).
