From Mohave County Sheriff Department

This media release is in response to a recent, yet reoccurring, inquiry about

equipment obtained by the MCSO through the Military 1033 program; particularly an

armored vehicle known as a Mine Resistant Armored Patrol vehicle or MRAP. The

purpose of the equipment obtained through the Military 1033 program is to obtain

property that can and/or may be used by the MCSO to fulfill its constitutional and

statutory duties. Many items would never be obtainable given their costs without the

Military 1033 program as Mohave County, like other counties, has limited resources to

acquire public safety equipment. Many of the items that are obtained have to be

adapted to MCSO’s purposes. It is possible that some of the items may never be

utilized by the MCSO and I will not utilize the equipment for military purposes.

All items obtained through the Military 1033 program, by the MCSO, were

obtained with the protection of lives and property, within Mohave County, in mind,

similar to purchases for other law enforcement equipment. The cost of maintenance and

upkeep are concerns for all equipment of the MCSO, regardless of whether it came

from the Military 1033 program or not and such costs are and were considered.

As to the MRAP, it is anticipated that the vehicle may be used for rescue and

other life-saving operations including extracting victims and/or wounded officers in

active-shooter situations that unfortunately can occur at schools, the work-place, and

other public gatherings. The MRAP may also be useful in standoff situations or even

rescues in natural disasters. One does not have to look too deep to know that Mohave

County has its share of standoff/ barricade situations and also natural disasters like

flash flooding. Additionally and unfortunately one does not have to search too far back

to know that school and work place shooting violence can occur in very remote and

unsuspecting communities.

This release includes photos of the MRAP, an inventory list that includes all the

equipment valuable or sensitive enough to require annual inventory and reporting to the

Department of Defense, and a copy of the form outlining the use of said equipment.

There are some who will never be satisfied with any response the MCSO can give

regarding equipment obtained through the Military 1033 program and they are certainly

entitled to their opinion. However, as Sheriff of Mohave County, I stand by my record

and the record of the MCSO in fulfilling my constitutional and statutory duties under

Arizona law and our proven record of protecting the lives and property of Mohave

County residents to the best of our ability with the resources available to us. Any

suggestion that the MCSO has or will misuse any Military 1033 program equipment,

simply because of the equipment’s origin, is unfounded and baseless.

Jim McCabe Mohave County Sheriff

Holiday Shopping Tips

 

“Black Friday”, the day after Thanksgiving, is considered the biggest shopping day of the year. Here are some tips to ensure a safe holiday shopping season from the Bullhead City Police Department:

 

1)                  Guard your Money

·         Avoid carrying large amounts of cash.

·         Women: carry a small purse that closes securely. Don’t set your bag down inside a shopping cart; carry it under your arm.

·         Men: Wallets should be kept close to your body, preferably under a jacket or sweater to prevent pick pocketing. Keep cash in your front pocket.

 

2)                  Guard your Purchases

·         Do not leave shopping bags unattended.

·         Do not leave any valuables inside your vehicle, especially in plain view.

 

3)                  Guard Yourself

·         Shop during the day when you can. If you shop at night, go with a friend and park in a well-lit area.

·         Avoid walking alone in abandoned parking lots or halls. If you feel unsafe, find mall security and ask for an escort.

·         Dress casually and comfortably and avoid wearing expensive jewelry.

·         Look alert, walk with confidence and be aware of your surroundings. Criminals often target people who appear distracted and vulnerable.

 

On behalf of the Bullhead City Police Department… Have a safe and happy holiday season!

 SEARCH AND RESCUE RECEIVES DONATION

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue Bullhead City Unit received a generous donation of $7,600 from Dondi and Jesse Godinez, owners of the Mohave Steakhouse at 2430 Highway 95 in Bullhead City, on Tuesday (10/7). 

Dondi and Jesse Godinez held a Search and Rescue fundraising event on September 29th where they donated all of their proceeds for that evening.  According to Dondi, we especially enjoy having this fund raiser every year to support and honor Search and Rescue.  These men and woman do a lot for us and the community.   “We are hopping non-stop during this event with such a great turnout of customers.  Additionally, this fund raiser is truly a team effort where fifteen employees donated their own time to show their support”, said Jesse.  

Sheriff Jim McCabe said, “Especially amazing with today’s economy!  Dondi and Jesse Godinez have once again given back to the community by supporting the Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue!   Much needed replacement equipment will be purchased by the SAR unit with their generous donation.”

Drugs drive Kingman crime statistics in 2013

(Thanks to the Kingman Daily Miner and KPD for posting this.)

2013’s crime statistics present a mixed bag for the Kingman Police Department. Some crimes were down, while others increased, most notably crimes involving dangerous drugs. The department also had to deal with staffing cuts, meaning that some categories of enforcement declined. The number of juveniles arrested dropped, but not the number of adults.

Doug McMurdo
Miner Staff Reporter

KINGMAN - Drug crime, and especially crimes involving dangerous drugs, increased sharply in 2013, according to an annual review by the Kingman Police Department.

There were 315 arrests for drug crimes, a 32 percent increase over the 2012 figure of 238.

And dangerous drug crimes - with methamphetamine, heroin and prescription drugs, mainly painkillers - rose nearly 77 percent.

"Drug-related complaints continue to be a concern in the community," said Chief Robert DeVries in his letter announcing the release of the report.

The department is the lead agency of the multi-jurisdictional Mohave Area General Narcotics Enforcement Team, known by its acronym, MAGNET.

Other agencies with personnel assigned are the Arizona Department of Public Safety, the Mohave County Sheriff's Office and the police departments of Lake Havasu City and Bullhead City.

While MAGNET operates throughout Mohave County, many of the 513 county-wide drug-related arrests were of people who lived either inside or just outside the city limits.

Drug seizures

About 35 ounces of cocaine was seized in 2013, as well as 67 ounces of heroin, more than 2,600 pounds of marijuana and 1,200 marijuana plants, and nearly 1,600 pills.

Methamphetamine, however, remains the drug of choice in Mohave County, at least for adults. According to the report, more than 32 pounds of the drug were seized or purchased in controlled drug buys last year.

Additionally, more than $676,500 in currency was seized, along with about $281,000 worth of vehicles and roughly $94,400 in weapons, jewelry and other items.

The report did not provide statistics specific to MAGNET activity in Kingman.

Juveniles choose painkillers

And as meth is the most popular drug for adults in Mohave County, youthful abusers have apparently chosen prescription drugs.

DeVries said while the number of juveniles arrested decreased dramatically in 2013 from the previous year - 426, down 24 percent from the 559 in 2012 - the number of juveniles arrested for possessing or using prescription drugs is so significant that the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission identified Mohave County as the state leader in prescription drug abuse by youth.

"The department is actively working with the Arizona Criminal Justice System," said DeVries.

Part of the effort to address prescription drug abuse quickly paid dividends.

According to DeVries, a drug drop box that was put in the Kingman Police Department lobby late last year collected eight pounds of unwanted or outdated prescriptions. The medicines were destroyed. Access to the drop box is available 24 hours.

Good news, bad news

On the good news side: incidents of aggravated assaults, burglaries, car theft, DUIs and traffic accidents were down last year compared to 2012.

On the bad news side: incidents of sexual assaults, robberies, thefts, arson, domestic violence and drug crimes were up.

According to the report, there were 17 sexual assaults in 2013, one more than in 2012, a 6.2 percent increase. Robberies more than doubled, from eight in 2012 to 19 in 2013, a 137 percent increase.

While the jump was dramatic, a four-year comparison shows robberies were actually down in 2012 compared to other recent years. There were 12 in 2009, for example, 21 the following year and 15 in 2011.

Arsons jumped from one to three. Again, however, 2012 numbers were down as five, three and four arsons were committed in Kingman in 2009, 2010 and 2011, respectively.

And statistics can be misleading when not taken in context. For instance, homicides went up by 100 percent, but only one alleged murder occurred last year while none were reported in 2012.

Kingman police detectives arrested Robert John Adkins, 51, and charged him with second-degree murder in the Christmas Eve death of his roommate, Michael J. Sudkamp, 53. Adkins was the victim's caregiver.

In a statistic that will raise eyebrows, 740 fewer traffic citations were issued in 2013 (994) than the previous year (1,677). DUI arrests also dropped from 144 in 2012 to 124 in 2013.

DeVries said the sharp reduction could partially be attributed to the traffic unit working at a two-thirds staffing level for most of the calendar year.

Instances of aggravated assault dropped nearly 5 percent, from 41 to 39.

In a somewhat contradictory pair of statistics, burglaries dropped by 216, from 787 to 571, but thefts increased by 126, 1,025 to 899.

The biggest increase in thefts regards shoplifting, which increased from 380 in 2012 to 554 last year.

Incidents of domestic violence increased fairly significantly, from 672 to 718, a nearly 7 percent rise. Motor vehicle thefts were down by 20, from 101 to 81.

And while juvenile arrests were down by 133 - 559 to 426 - adults were holding the line in arrests as the percentage dropped less than half a percent, from 2,448 to 2,439.


To those of you who think selling Oxy pills is no big thing......

Oxycodone trafficker is sentenced to 15 years in federal prison

A Las Vegas man was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for trafficking prescription drugs between here and Alaska, Nevada’s U.S. Attorney Daniel G. Bogden announced Thursday.

Nicholas Ghafouria, 28, had pleaded guilty to conspiracy, drug and money laundering charges, officials said. Federal authorities said Ghafouria organized the distribution of more than 4,000 oxycodone pills in Alaska and laundered at least $1.2 million in cash proceeds between May 2009 and October 2010.

Ghafouria, one of 27 defendants charged in the scheme, shipped or transported the pills on airplanes from Las Vegas to Alaska, where the pills sold for $65 each, officials said. In turn, co-conspirators in Alaska would send money back to Ghafouria via couriers or deposit proceeds into a bank account. At Ghafouria’s direction, people in Las Vegas would withdraw the money.

Nineteen of the defendants charged were from Alaska, while the other eight resided in Las Vegas, officials said. Most received a prison sentence.

Ghafouria must also forfeit more than $1.2 million in cash and property and serve three years of supervised release upon completing his prison sentence.

“Over the last several years, we have been working with state and local law enforcement and health care providers to attack the growing prescription drug abuse problem in Nevada,” Bodgen wrote in a statement. “Since January 2010, over 100 individuals, including four doctors and a pharmacist, have been charged in Nevada with unlawfully distributing highly addicted prescription painkillers.”

Multiple law enforcement agencies in Nevada and Alaska investigated this case.
