REWARD

** Rash of Home and Vehicle Burglaries **

Over the last several weeks the Kingman Police Department has taken dozens of reports of vehicle and home burglaries.  Most of the vehicles had been left unlocked, making it easy for the criminals to gain entry.  Several of the home burglaries have occurred while the home occupants are in the home sleeping.  Entry into the homes is also through unlocked doors.  The burglaries have occurred between the hours of 10:00pm and 4:00am at different areas around the city and county.  Everyone is asked to lock your vehicles, lock the doors and windows on your homes, leave outside lights on, be vigilant, remove valuables from your vehicles, and report any suspicious activity.  The best defense against being victimized is prevention.  Take reasonable precautions to protect yourself and your home.   These criminals haven’t shown to be violent or confrontational, however it is very brazen to enter an occupied home, therefore all care should be taken to protect yourself.  Be very aware and familiar with laws regarding self-defense and protecting your home.  Anyone with information leading to the arrest and apprehension of those responsible for these or any crimes are urged to contact the Kingman Police Department by calling (928) 753-2191, report anonymously to Mohave Silent Witness by calling (928) 753-1234, report tips online at www.kingmanpolice.com by clicking on “Give A Tip”.  KPD also has a new App that can be downloaded for free from the App Store, by searching “Kingman Police Department”.  Tips can also be submitted via the KPD app.  A reward is being offered.  Anyone with questions on home and self-defense can contact KPD and direct questions to Deputy Chief Rusty Cooper, Lieutenant Bob Fisk or Sergeant David Reif.

ATV Rollover near Devil’s Dip in Kingman

By SAR volunteers

 

KINGMAN – There are many challenging jeep roads in the Hualapai Mountains. According to Luis Vega, SAR Field Commander, one of these roads takes off from Hualapai Mountain Road at what is locally known as Devil’s Dip and climbs to the top of the ridge before dropping to DW Ranch Road. On a recent April Sunday, a couple out for a ride on their ATV, attempted to reach the top of the ridge when their ATV flipped backwards on a steep portion of the road.

Although both riders suffered injuries, the male rider was able to drive the damaged ATV to Hualapai Mountain Road for help.

Pinion Pine Fire Department, AMR ambulance, MCSO deputies and MCSO Search and Rescue (SAR) volunteers responded to the Devil’s Dip area. Because the road climbing to the ridge is steep, rocky and difficult, emergency vehicles were not able to reach the accident site. SAR volunteers used a Jeep and UTV Razor to transport medical personnel and their equipment to the injured female.

Due to the nature of her injuries and the steep terrain, it was deemed too risky to carry the patient to flatter ground or transport her in a vehicle. The decision was made to transport her using DPS Ranger 42 helicopter using a short-haul maneuver; transporting the patient and rescuer hanging from a rope attached to the bottom of the helicopter.

SAR volunteers assisted DPS in preparing the helicopter for short-haul and a SAR Technical Rope Technician (TRT) got ready while medical personnel prepared the patient for the flight to the waiting ambulance.

The helicopter set the patient and the rescuer down on Hualapai Mountain Road where she was placed in the ambulance and taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center.

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office reminds ATV riders to enjoy the outdoors safely by following the manufactures recommendations when riding ATVs. Do not ride double on ATVs intended for a single rider, wear safety equipment such as helmets, eye protection and gloves and know your capabilities. Attempting to drive roads that are beyond a rider’s ability is a recipe for injury.

**Reminder of Kingman Police Department Program and Safety Tips**

Given the rise and popularity of online purchasing via websites such as Craigslist, social media garage sales, and other sites, the Kingman Police Department announces a new program to hopefully enhance safety during the transaction. The department recommends using the front parking lot located at 2730 E. Andy Devine Ave. to meet and conduct their transaction. The front parking lot is now video monitored 24 hours a day. While the department is not staffed 24 hours a day, the high visibility and location on Andy Devine coupled with video monitoring will deter those that have ill intent for the transaction.

Similar programs have started across the country and experienced great success. The program concept was provided to the department by one of our Facebook followers. The Kingman Police Department welcomes your input and suggestions on how we can better serve and protect the residents of our community. Join us on Facebook, Twitter, or our webpage at www.kingmanpolice.com

With the approach of the summer season we also want to remind our residents of several safety tips.

Always lock your car-“LOCK IT OR LOSE IT!”
Always park in a well-lit area and DO NOT leave valuables or packages in the car.
ALWAYS BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS!
During warmer weather, DO NOT start and leave a running vehicle unattended.
DO NOT leave children or pets in a car.
Have PLENTY of WATER with you in case your vehicle overheats.
And remember ALWAYS if you SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!

11th Annual Drug Take-Back Day in Lake Havasu City

The Lake Havasu City Police Department is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration to hold the 11th Annual Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 30, 2016, from 10:00am to 2:00pm. This one-day event will make it convenient for the public to rid their homes of potentially dangerous, expired, unused, and unwanted pills at a drop-off location in front of the Lake Havasu City Police Department free of charge.

Properly disposing of the expired, unused, and unwanted pills will help prevent drug abuse and theft.

In the previous ten Take-Back events nationwide from 2010-2015, over 5,500,000 pounds or 2,750 tons of drugs were collected.

Missing Kids Readiness Project

The Bullhead City Police Department is now a member of a premier program designed to protect children.

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) developed the Missing Kids Readiness Project to promote best practices for responding to calls of missing, abducted and sexually exploited children. 9-1-1 call centers and law enforcement agencies are recognized for meeting essential training and policy elements demonstrating preparedness for responding to a missing child incident.

“Approximately a year and a half ago, the police department set a goal to be very well prepared for handling cases of missing children. One of the most important things a police department can do is facilitate reuniting missing children with their families,” said Bullhead City Police Chief Brian Williamson. “In order to accomplish this goal, we knew we had to modify our policies, procedures, and training. We decided the best way to do this would be to become members of the NCMEC Missing Kids Readiness Project.”

To meet the requirements of the Project, the Bullhead City Police Department worked with NCMEC on their missing child policy to ensure it met the critical elements of NCMEC’s model policy for law enforcement agencies. In addition, Chief Williamson attended the Missing Children Seminar for Chief Executives held at NCMEC headquarters in Alexandria, VA and ensured all first responders and front line supervisors completed the necessary classroom and/or online training offered through NCMEC. By making this commitment of training and preparedness, the Bullhead City Police Department is communicating to its citizens and families that protecting the lives and safety of their children is a top priority.

Armed with the information, knowledge and operational resources gained through meeting the project criteria, the Bullhead City Police Department is now positioned to respond more quickly, comprehensively, and effectively when a child’s life may be at stake.

“I am very proud of the members of the police department for all of the hard work and dedication they put in to complete this project,” said Chief Williamson. “I would like to give special recognition to Senior Emergency Services Dispatcher JoLynn McCabe for the phenomenal job she did managing this very important project.”

Not only is the Bullhead City Police Department now one of just thirty-one law enforcement agencies in the United States who have achieved this status, but they are also the second within the state of Arizona.

The plan was to rappel a Search & Rescue technical rope technician (TRT) to Taylor, prepare him to connect to the rope and do a short-haul extraction. Unfortunately, the sun was going down rapidly and there was insufficient light to complete the short-haul maneuver. A Search & Rescue TRT rappelled from the helicopter to Taylor and decided to attempt hiking and climbing down the steep canyon wall to the wash bottom and find a spot where the helicopter could do a one-skid technique to load Taylor. The canyon where Taylor was injured was too narrow and had too many trees to safely attempt a helicopter landing. After about four hours of descending the wash, Taylor and the rescuer reached a part of the canyon where there was sufficient room for the helicopter to hover above a large rock. Taylor and the rescuer performed a hover-ingress; entering the helicopter while it was still in the air. Taylor was flown to Kingman Regional Medical Center for treatment.

An adult male subject began communicating with the juvenile female profile and the conversation turned sexual in nature. The male subject began sending nude photographs to the juvenile. The investigation resulted in the arrest of 52-year-old Scott Buffington, a resident of Kingman. Buffington was arrested in Kingman with the assistance of the Kingman Police Department and booked into the Mohave County Jail. Buffington was arrested and charged with aggravated luring of a minor for sexual exploitation and furnishing harmful items to a minor. Buffington attended his initial appearance on January 15, 2016 and was held on a $50,000 bond. Buffington has since bonded out of jail.

**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. Additional fraud and scam information is available at www.kingmanpolice.com by clicking on "External Resources" at the bottom of the page.

Pipe Bomb found in the desert in Kingman today.

A Citizens Action Team member found a pipe bomb in the desert today and alerted the bomb squad who came out and rendered it safe.
This is a big reminder to everyone to pay close attention to your surroundings’ at all times. You never know what is just lying around where you are hiking.

This was a relatively small unit, but still could have had very deadly consequences’ to anyone who found it.
The area it was found in was 1 mile west of Northern Ave and Stockton Hill Road, in an area where people shoot frequently, (most people do not know this is State Trust Land and is illegal to shoot in that area).
If you even THINK something looks like a pipe bomb, DO NOT pick it up or disturb it. Call law enforcement immediately. Dispatch numbers: KPD 928-753-2191 Sheriff: 928-753-0753. or 911

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.

 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.
