Seeking help in Waddell

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in identifying those who vandalized cars in Waddell’s Cortessa Community on August 28.

Deputies responded to several cars with smashed windows and slashed tires at 5 a.m. The MSCO is looking for witnesses in the Cortessa and White Tanks Foothills neighborhoods, north and south of an area bounded by 180th and 186th avenues. Investigators are particularly interested in speaking with residents who had security cameras operating from 1 to 4 a.m.

The MCSO’s number is 602-876-1011.

Fire departments come together for rescue

A 30-year-old female hiker was rescued from Skyline Park, 2600 N. Watson Road, Buckeye, August 23 after she was lost around Quartz Mine Trail with little water, according to Capt. Tommy Taylor with the Buckeye Fire Department.

Technical rescue teams from Buckeye, Phoenix and Peoria helped with the incident. The command staff contacted her via cellphone, and she said she could meet the recon team. She eventually fell ill, so the Buckeye team deployed the “big wheel” stokes basket and transported her from the mountain.

The woman was treated for heat-related illness but did not require a hospital visit.

Hit-and-run suspect sought

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is still looking for a driver who killed a man on Dysart Road, just south of Camelback Road, around 4 a.m. August 18.

The victim, a black male in his 60s, was found in the northbound lane.

Witnesses are asked to call the MSCO at 602-876-1011.
