Do you recognize these vehicles used in the Granville Home of Hope burglary?

Police released photos Tuesday of the three vehicles used to steal thousands of dollars of property while burglarizing the Granville Home of Hope last week. A description of the suspects was also given.

Police are looking for two Hispanic male adults between 20 and 30 years old.

One is 5 feet 9 inches, 160 to 175 pounds, with dark, short, curly hair and a bushy mustache. The other is clean shaven between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 9 inches, 170 pounds with short hair.

There were three vehicles involved, according to police: A 1997 to 2004 white single cab Ford F Series truck, with a blue stripe along the sides; a white Dodge Journey, 2008 to present model with black wheels, a black grill and black rear view mirrors, a side roof rack and tinted rear windows; and a 1990s Chevy or Ford Panel van with a faded paint and dent to the rear door.

Fresno Police Lt. Mark Hudson said between $20,000 to $25,000 of property was taken in the burglary, which was reported around 6 a.m. at the home on the 6100 block of East Sydney Drive in east Fresno. He said the burglars took appliances and furniture that came with the home.

The 14th Granville Home of Hope was raffled off on May 1 by Granville Homes to benefit local charity and nonprofit organizations; this year’s fundraiser reached $600,000.

The winner of the 14th annual giveaway was Varus Kardashian. The 1,800-square-foot home was valued at $350,000 and located in Granville’s gated Canvas Collection neighborhood at Belterra.
