SCAMS – MOHAVE COUNTY

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public of two ongoing scams.

The first scam is where residents have reported receiving phone calls from representatives from “Microsoft Office Works” or “Windows” or similar companies. The caller is inquiring about your personal computer and the caller asks for the computers VNC (Virtual Network Computing) number so they can remotely access it to fix a system error or problem. Then, the caller states that there are fees for the service and asks for your banking information, personal information, SSN and address.

In another incident, a Deputy at the Sheriff’s Office received the same type of phone call where the caller was calling about his computer. The caller hung up as soon as the deputy disclosed that he was at work and they can call someone else. The caller’s phone numbers have been 1-208-673-6776 and 1-518-288-6730. The deputy tried calling these numbers, but they ring constantly. On one occasion, the deputy was able to contact a male subject and noticed he had a heavy foreign accent, but he hung up when the deputy identified himself.

The second scam involves an email and/or mail scam where a Lake Havasu City resident received a letter informing her that she has been selected to be a secret shopper or a Walmart mystery shopper. Enclosed was a postal money order for $1,000, where she would be paid $170 and the remaining money she was instructed to send via Western Union or a money gram. She was urged to immediately deposit the money order and send the Western Union or money gram. The resident was informed by her bank that the money order was fraudulent.

Both of these incidents are believed to be attempted scams and the Sheriff’s Office would like to caution residents. Always be cautious when it comes to sending money, providing personal information including computer information and passwords. If you suspect fraud, contact your local law enforcement office.

UPDATE - ARREST
Explosive Device Detonated

Bullhead City Police arrested a man responsible for setting off homemade explosive devices in the Bullhead City area.

A nearby mobile home was damaged by the 2015 explosion.

     On September 4th, police contacted Krikorian at his residence and could see materials on his porch that were consistent with the material used in the August 22nd incident.

"I am Dave Cooke and the father of a son battling his heroin addiction.
I have been on this journey since 2009 and am all too familiar with the impact addiction has on a family. In the early stages of this experience I was nearly destroyed financially, professionally and personally. If it wasn’t for the successful achievement of a cycling challenge I gave myself – one hundred consecutive days, at least one hour a day – who knows where I would be. Today, I know my son’s story is not my story to tell nor is it my story. Rather, my story is about faith, love, and grace and how God guides me through the most difficult experiences to discover a place of peace, clarity and purpose. It is a powerful story and the one I am happy to share with you"

Jones, who is believed to have been killed in one of the explosions in NV, is to have been living in Kingman for the past several months.  A storage unit, believed to have belonged to Jones, is also located in the RV park.  This storage unit has not been cleared and is suspected to contain more IED material.  A mandatory evacuation has occurred for the southern section of the Zuni RV Park.  Those displaced by the evacuation have been directed to a Red Cross shelter that has been established at the Kingman High School on Bank St., in Kingman.  When EOD begins processing the storage unit the entire RV park will be subject to mandatory evacuation.  The evacuations are due to the extremely dangerous and volatile situation created by the presence of IEDs and IED making material. 

A voluntary evacuation is being recommended for anyone within the following perimeter:  Airway Ave. to the north, Rutherford St. to the West, N. Bank St to the East and Beverly Ave. to the South.

Jones’ green in color, 2007 Saturn 4dr, was located last night in the parking lot of the Avis Car Rental, 4200blk. of Stockton Hill Rd., in Kingman.  This vehicle was rendered safe this morning at about 6:00am.  Investigators located a piece of a IED device inside Jones’ vehicle.

KPD’s EOD team is being assisted by EOD experts from the Bullhead City Police Department (BHC PD), the AZ Department of Public Safety (AZ DPS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).  KPD investigators are also working and cooperating with NV authorities.

We will not be releasing any information regarding Jones’, his history or his motivation.

** Independence Day Holiday DUI Detail **

The Kingman Police Department, in partnership with the Western Arizona DUI Taskforce, will be out this this weekend to apprehend those who choose to drive while impaired. The Kingman Police Department is able to provide enhanced DUI enforcement due to a grant awarded by the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. This grant helps to cover the costs associated with enhanced enforcement operations. The DUI details allow officers to be assigned the specific task of locating and arresting drivers suspected of DUI.

The goal of the Western Arizona DUI Taskforce is to provide deterrence to drivers who may choose to drive while impaired by drugs or alcohol. Alcohol is the most well-known substance associated with DUI; however, the Kingman Police Department has noticed a significant increase in DUI arrests due to prescription medications. It is important for drivers to understand that impairment due to prescribed medication is not just illegal, but just as dangerous and deadly. If arrested for a DUI offense the offender faces jail time, their vehicle will be impounded, their driver’s license suspended, and hefty fines.

If you observe a suspected impaired driver immediately call your local law enforcement agency, provide a good description of vehicle and driver, direction of travel, and if possible a license plate to assist us in removing the subject from the road. Don’t confront the individual, simply be a good witness and keep a safe distance. We all have to work together to prevent such tragedies from being repeated. The Kingman Police Department wishes everyone a safe Independence Day.

Remember “Drive Hammered, Get Nailed!”

BARRICADED SUBJECTS THREATENS TO SHOOT POLICE IN BULLHEAD CITY

Bullhead City Police arrested Julio Adrian Aguilar Gomez, 20, after he barricaded himself and threaten to shoot police officers.

On June 16th at about 2:15 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 600 block of Swan Drive. A resident at this location reported that Gomez was banging on their door and window. The resident secured a firearm for protection and told Gomez to leave his residence. Gomez stated he wanted a cigarette, which they did not have. The resident reported that Gomez was still in the street pacing.

When police arrived on scene and attempted to contact Gomez, he yelled profanities at the officers and ran into his neighboring apartment. He continued to yell profanities and threatened to shoot the officers through the door. Officers tried to convince Gomez to exit his residence.

When Gomez came out of his apartment, he hid behind a parked car and continued to be uncooperative. Gomez made several erratic movements, acted as though he had a weapon and continued to threaten to shoot officers. Several attempts were made to get Gomez to come out of his yard peacefully, including offering him cigarettes. Gomez still refused to comply. Officers were able to approach Gomez from behind and he was tased. Another officer deployed a less lethal bean bag round to Gomez¡¯s shoulder to gain compliance. Gomez was not in possession of a firearm.

Gomez was medically cleared at Western Arizona Regional Medical Center. He was arrested for aggravated assault, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia (Gomez threw a marijuana pipe into the driveway during the incident).

He will be booked into the Mohave County Jail, Kingman.

 Recently....

 a business owner lost $1,000.00 to a scammer. It goes like this: The business owner got a call from a 602 number late on a Friday. They said they were with Unisource and there was a balance owed of 1000 dollars, and that they would have to shut the power off in 1 hour if it was not paid by getting a Green Dot money pak at Wal-Mart and calling them back with the pin numbers. The business owner panicked because they would have to close for the weekend if the power went off. The owner assumed the last check to Unisource did not clear or there was some other problem and did not verify with Unisource till it was too late.

Unfortunately it was a scam.

 Unisource would never call you to do that, nor would any other utility company do that.  Call Law enforcement if you receive any such call.
