GRAND CANYON, Ariz. — A rash of vehicle break-ins and thefts have prompted National Park Service (NPS) law enforcement to seek the community’s help in identifying any suspects and preventing further thefts.

In the past two weeks, a growing number of vehicles in residential areas have been broken into and items have been stolen. Law enforcement is offering the following tips for safeguarding personal property and the community.
