**IRS Phone Scam**

The Kingman Police has taken multiple phone calls and reports of an IRS phone scam via “robo calls”.  The caller claims to be from the “Internal Revenue Service (IRS)” and tells the individual that the “IRS” has filed a lawsuit against them and demands that the victim contact them immediately.  These scammers make unsolicited calls and try to scare the victims.  They might threaten to have the individual arrested, deported, or license revoked if they don’t get their money.  These scammers use caller ID spoofing to look like a legitimate number from the IRS.  Additionally, the callers use IRS titles and fake badge numbers. They may have your personal information such as your name and social security number.  DO NOT provide them any personal information or any money and hang up immediately.

The Internal Revenue Service does not operate in this manner.  They will not call you to demand immediate payment and they will not call you if you owe taxes without first sending you a bill in the mail.  The IRS does not require you to pay your taxes in a certain form of payment, and they don’t ask for your credit or debit card numbers over the phone.  The IRS doesn’t threaten to have police or other agencies arrest you for not paying.  If you know that you owe or think you may owe taxes, you can call the IRS at 800-829-1040. 

This is just one of many types of scams that are occurring daily. Arrest and apprehension of these criminals is very unlikely. Education and being informed are the best defenses against these types of scams.

Police Investigate Shooting Incident

On Tuesday, January 5, 2016, at approximately 8:46 a.m., Lake Havasu City Police officers responded to the 3000 block of Hidden Valley Drive in reference to a shooting at a residence.  

 

Responding officers learned that 50-year old Scott Mcweeney had been shot in the leg.  Mcweeney was involved in an altercation with an adult family member and allegedly challenged the family member and told him “you better grab your gun.” The family member exited the room with the gun to diffuse the disturbance that Mcweeney was causing and also to allow another family member to safely exit the residence. The incident turned into a struggle over the handgun between Mcweeney and the family member. Mcweeney was ultimately shot one time in the upper portion of his right leg. The family member claimed he intended to wound Mcweeney to prevent a further assault and allow the other family member to safely exit the residence.

 

Detectives from the Criminal Investigation Unit were called-out to investigate the crime and conduct interviews.  The investigation revealed that Mcweeney was the aggressor and is awaiting charges. At this time, no arrest was made on the family member that shot Mcweeney. The case will be sent to the Mohave County Attorney’s Office for review of criminal charges.

 

Mcweeney is in stable condition awaiting surgery at the hospital.  All involved are residents of Lake Havasu City.

**Arizona Governor¡¦s Office of Highway Safety Annual Holiday DUI Crackdown Kickoff**

The Kingman Police Department along with agencies across Arizona attended the Arizona Governor¡¦s Office of Highway Safety Holiday DUI Enforcement annual press conference held in Phoenix on Tuesday, December 1st to launch the statewide crackdown on impaired driving through the New Year holiday. The Kingman Police Department as well as local agencies involved in the Western Arizona DUI Taskforce receives funding from the Arizona Governor¡¦s Office of Highway Safety to conduct special operations in our local jurisdictions looking for impaired drivers. The Kingman Police Department has already begun to crack down on impaired drivers and will continue DUI details throughout December to New Years.

Impaired driving does not only involve those who use alcohol.  Illegal drugs and prescription drug use have continued to increase the arrest numbers.  Often times just one or two alcoholic beverages combined with a prescription drug dose can severely impair a person¡¦s ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. 

The Western Arizona DUI Taskforce and the Arizona Governor¡¦s Office of Highway Safety would encourage the use of a designated driver.  Plan ahead and take advantage of the local cab companies and even tow companies who often provide discounted rates during the holiday season. ¡§Get a DD, NOT a DUI!¡¨

Arizona has the toughest DUI laws in the country.  An average first time DUI violator can expect fines and fees to exceed $10,000 which would include the installation of the interlock device on their personal vehicle.  Remember if you ¡§Drive Hammered, Get Nailed!¡¨

¡§The holidays are a time to celebrate so please think before you drink.  Make memories, not statistics.  The Kingman Police Department and staff wish everyone a safe and enjoyable holiday season!¡¨ said Chief DeVries

**Multiple Crashes Along Beale St.**

*Semi Tractor Trailer Rollover Crash*

Today, November 19th at approximately 6:55 a.m., Kingman Police responded to a semi rollover in the area of W. Beale St. and I-40 which was blocking both east and west bound traffic. The investigation revealed that a red 1997 Tractor Trailer, driven by Guy Leo Arcia, exited westbound I-40 onto the westbound off ramp which leads to Beale St. As the driver applied the brakes the truck didn¡¦t slow enough and when it made the turn in the right hand lane the load of his truck shifted causing his trailer to tilt left. Unable to slow any further in time the trailer load leaned far enough left to topple over the trailer in turn carrying the cab onto its driver side. The load broke free from the trailer and spread across the entirety of the eastbound lanes of W. Beale St. while the vehicle obstructed the left lane of westbound travel. The driver was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center by River Medical Ambulance for possible injuries. Arcia was cited for Failure to Control Speed to Avoid a Crash. The vehicle was up righted by ADOT and the City of Kingman and was ultimately towed away. The roadway was cleared at approximately 9:15 a.m. The semi-tractor trailer was inspected by ADOT personnel to determine if equipment issues were a factor.

*3 Vehicle Crash*

A second crash occurred at 8:30 a.m. at milepost 69 on W. Beale St. due to traffic coming to a halt from the rollover.  A driver heading eastbound from Golden Valley crested over the hill of Coyote Pass in a 1997 Chevrolet S10.  Due the morning sun rising directly in front of eastbound traffic, the driver was unable to detect that the vehicles in front of him were stopped due to the crash ahead.  The driver applied the brakes which caused the vehicle to skid and collide into the rear of a 1994 Honda Accord, which in turn sent the Honda directly into a 2005 Chevy Silverado in front of him.  The 21 year old male driver of the Honda Accord suffered severe neck and back pain and was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center by River Medical.  The 63 year old male driver of the Chevy Silverado suffered neck pain, but was not transported.  The driver of the Chevy S10 had no injuries and was cited for Failure to Control Speed to Avoid a Crash.  The Honda Accord was towed from the scene.

*2 Vehicle Crash*

A third crash occurred at 9:15 a.m. at milepost 70 on W. Beale St. due to traffic from the rollover traveling very slowly.  A 35 year old driver of a tractor trailer was headed eastbound on W. Beale St. in the slow lane of travel.  A 2004 Ford Explorer in front of the tractor trailer stopped in front of the tractor trailer due to traffic congestion coming to a halt.  The driver of the tractor trailer was unable to stop in time and collided into the rear of the vehicle causing minimal damage.  The vehicles moved off the roadway into a nearby truck stop.  No injuries were received.  The driver was cited for Failure to Control Speed to Avoid a Crash.

**Beware Cybercriminal Phone Scams**

The Kingman Police Department is aware of a telephone call representing ¡§Microsoft¡¨ claiming to be in Washington D.C.; however the call was coming up on caller ID with a Phoenix area code.  The caller was able to access the computer to diagnose problems the victim had after an update.  ¡§Microsoft¡¨ called back later to obtain the debit/credit card number so they could charge the victim for an ¡§unlimited update¡¨.   Fortunately the victim did not provide any financial or personal information, shut down the computer and disconnected it immediately before the scammer was able to lock the computer up and hold it for ransom in order to unfreeze it.  Neither Microsoft nor its partners make unsolicited phone calls to charge you for computer security or software fixes.  Do not trust unsolicited calls and do not provide personal information.  Doing so can put your computer and your personal information at risk.  The Kingman Police Department recommends that if you have given access to your computer shut it down immediately and disconnect it from the power source.  Take it to someone you trust to inspect it and remove any malicious content.  This is just one of many types of scams that are occurring daily. Arrest and apprehension of these criminals is very unlikely. Education and being informed are the best defenses against these types of scams.

KINGMAN MAN MISSING SINCE OCT. 27


FAMILY SEEKS HELP FINDING GADBAW

KINGMAN - "It's like he just - phoosh - vanished."
Debbie Knickerbocker's hands trembled as she discussed the sudden and unexplained disappearance of her older brother. More than a week has passed since anyone who knows Phillip Gadbaw has seen him. His family knows the 57-year-old had no money other than a loose dollar or two. They know he doesn't drive. He doesn't carry a cell phone and they don't know if he had his wallet, the one with a paper copy of a temporary Arizona driver's license, sans photograph.

Local law enforcement is reluctant to do anything because it isn't against the law for adults to leave without saying a word to anyone. Knickerbocker understands this cold but true fact, so she took it upon herself to search for her older brother.

Simply put, Gadbaw has never made his family wonder where he was. He did, however, have serious health issues. He was recently released from the hospital after a five-week stay and was "shaky on his legs," said Knickerbocker. She also said he has cognitive issues and she fears he would be unable to defend himself if someone wanted to do him harm.

Knickerbocker searched the desert and a nearby impound yard. She's called or visited everyone who knew her brother. She prays he didn't stumble on the train tracks.

"He would have called. He would have found someone with a phone and he would have called his wife," said Knickerbocker.

Gadbaw and his wife no longer live together, but they remain close friends despite the estrangement. "She's helped me look. We've put up posters," said Knickerbocker.

While the family, including Knickerbocker's daughter in Minnesota and her ailing father in Kingman hold out hope, Knickerbocker admits her mind has gone to a dark place.

"This happens to other people," she said. "We never think it will happen to us, but I've learned nobody is safe from life. Life can be amazing and life can rip your heart out. We just want to find him."

And when she thinks the worst has happened, she wonders if her brother knew how much he was loved and how much he will be missed.
Gadbaw was last seen in the Safeway Plaza at Stockton Hill Road and Gordon Drive between 9 and 10 a.m. Oct. 27. He stands 5-foot-8 and weighs 175 pounds, with blue eyes and a brown and grey beard. The day he went missing, Gadbaw, a 20-year Kingman resident, was wearing a faded Minnesota Vikings ball cap, grey knit lounging pants, black lace up tennis shoes and a black lightweight jacket with a hood and a dark blue with white stripes, short-sleeve button-down shirt.

Anyone with information on Gadbaw's whereabouts is asked to contact the Kingman Police Department at (928) 753-1911, or any of the following numbers: (928) 897-7139, (928) 757-3428, or (612) 443-5107.

**Phone Scam Warning**

The Kingman Police Department is investigating a fraudulent scheme wherein an elderly woman was victimized and exploited out of over $8,000.00.  In this incident the scammer called the victim and identified themselves to be from the ¡§Bureau of Protection in Washington, DC.¡¨, telling the victim that they had won one million dollars.  The scammer then tells the victim to send a cashiers check or money gram to cover administrative or processing costs associated with the winnings.  This is just one of many types of confidence scams that are occurring daily.  It is unlikely that she is the only local resident to have been contacted by these or other scammers.  Arrest and apprehension of these criminals is very unlikely. Education and being informed are the best defenses against these types of scams.  Additional fraud and scam information is available at www.kingmanpolice.com by clicking on "External Resources" at the bottom of the page.

Citizens Beware of Recent Computer Scams

The Lake Havasu City Police Department is warning the public about a computer scam that recently defrauded a local resident. A Lake Havasu City resident was contacted by a person claiming to be employed by a computer company.  The suspect told the resident that he needed to fix their computer because it had been hacked. The resident was instructed to send a specific amount of money through Western Union to fix the computer. After the money was sent, the suspect called and told the resident that he worked on the computer for a few days and fixed the problem.

On another occasion, the suspect called a resident and said he was from Ryzone Computer Company. The suspect told the citizen that he found numerous viruses on their computer. The suspect said they had a master computer in California which detected the viruses. The suspect asked the resident to enter several numeric codes into the computer. This allowed the suspect to remotely access the computer. The suspect called back and demanded $150.00 for the repair work to the computer.

Ways to avoid being victimized by the computer scam:

  • Never send money to anyone that calls and alleges they found a computer virus and demands payment to fix the issue.

The purpose of Domestic Violence Awareness Month is to raise awareness and support in an effort to end violence.  One in four women, and one in six men, will experience domestic violence.  Domestic violence does not discriminate - anyone can be a victim without regard to gender, race, religion, or financial status.

Mayor Mark S. Nexsen proclaims October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Lake Havasu City and encourages citizens to stand with domestic abuse survivors, celebrate our community's progress in combating these despicable crimes, and resolve to carry on until domestic violence is no more.

The Lake Havasu City Attorney¡¦s Office Victim Assistance Program participates in an annual Silent Witness Project, modeled after the National Silent Witness Initiative. This project brings awareness to the community about the reality of domestic violence, honors those who have fallen victim to domestic violence, and serves as a reminder that domestic violence does not discriminate ¡V it is impartial to age, gender, social status, income, race, and religion.  During the month of October, displays of victim silhouettes will be placed around the community with the main display at the City Hall lobby.  Each silhouette represents an Arizona woman, man, or child who is a victim of domestic violence homicide and each shares the story of their untimely death.

On October 25, 2015, H.A.V.E.N. Family Resource Center hosts the 4th Annual "Save A Life" Domestic Violence Awareness Walk at Rotary Park in Lake Havasu City.  This event is a gathering of community members to raise awareness, honor victims, and provide resources and support to prevent domestic violence. The walk begins at 9am and includes guest speakers, t-shirts, goody bags, and information.

According to the 2012 FBI Uniform Crime Report, Arizona ranks third in domestic violence homicides of women per million population. There is a high probability that domestic violence affects you or someone you know. Victims do not have to suffer alone. There are people available to help. HAVEN provides a safe, comfortable place to access services and receive support and resources 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.

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.
