A pair of 21-year-old men in a Henderson jail were charged with six additional burglaries on Wednesday after police said they found new incidents dating back months.
Dallas Creswell and Cory Quenzler were already detained in the Henderson Detention Center on charges of breaking into a car and stealing a gun and were originally arrested on Aug. 13. As detectives continued the investigation into the burglary, possession of stolen property and conspiracy charges, they found other victims dating back to July 30 and continuing until the spree ended with the arrest of the pair last week, police said.
Police said the men drove around searching for open vehicles and stealing items of value inside. Police believe they started the spree in the area around Green Valley Parkway and Warm Springs Road and then moved to the Anthem area prior to being arrested.
Detectives believe the pair could be involved in other vehicle break-ins, and the investigation is ongoing.

In a press release on Thursday, Henderson police gave advice on making your car a harder target, as auto burglaries are often are crimes of opportunity:
• Do not leave valuables in plain view: GPS devices, laptops, cell phones, tablets, purses and wallets.
• Do not leave windows or sunroofs open.
• Do not leave the doors unlocked.
• Do not leave the keys in the vehicle.
• Do not leave a garage door opener in plain view.
• Do not leave personal information in the vehicle that could lead to identify theft.
