Police arrived at the scene and conducted a 3-hour long investigation of fingerprints, shell case collecting, and attempted to find video footage from surveillance cameras in the neighborhood.

The suspects are believed to have fled the scene in a blue or black older model truck with 4 doors with the back doors only being able to be opened if the front doors are opened.

The Desert Color Community Association sent out an email to residents stating: " From Information provided by the St. George Police Department, this incident is a result of a "crime of opportunity" carried out by individuals who are specifically looking for unlocked vehicles and homes."

You are urged to keep your vehicles and homes locked at all times.
