** Officer shoots and kills dogs during attack **

On Wednesday, August 5th, at 11:10am, a Kingman Police Officer shot and killed two dogs at a residence in the 3600blk of Dove Ln.  While following up on a traffic complaint the officer respond to the home on Dove Ln. The officer attempted to verbally contact the occupants from outside the fence.  Not getting a response the officer entered the fenced yard.  While approaching the front door of the residence several dogs came from around the corner of the home. A large Sheppard mix dog and a large white in color Pit Bull dog aggressively approached the officer.  The Pit Bull circled around behind the officer and bit the lower rear thigh of the officer.  The Pit began to pull and rip, during which time the Shepard mix attacked and bit the officer on the front of the same leg.   During the attack the Pit dog was latched onto the officer’s rear thigh, not letting go.  It was at this point the officer drew his weapon and shot each dog once, killing the Pit and wounding the Shepard mix.  A ranking supervisor also responded to the home and contacted the dog’s owner.  The injured officer was treated and released from Kingman Regional Medical Center with significant bit wounds to his right leg.  The immediate concern is if the animals were current on rabies shots.  The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office and Mohave County Animal Control is handling that investigation.  The Kingman Police Department has determined that the officer’s presence in the fenced yard and subsequent actions to defend himself from further serious injury were reasonable and justified.

Citizens Beware of Recent Scams

The Lake Havasu City Police Department is warning the public about a lottery-winning-type scam that recently defrauded a local resident. Within the past week, a Lake Havasu City resident was contacted by a person claiming to be employed by a lottery agency. The suspect told the resident it would be necessary to pay a tax fee so the winnings could be released. The resident was instructed to send a specific amount of money through Western Union. The suspect would then tell the resident that they would be in contact with them the following day to make further arrangements for the lottery winnings. The resident was also asked to provide information such as a social security number, bank account numbers, and passwords to online bank accounts. The suspect even attempted to open a personal loan through a local financial institution using the residents’ personal information. Ways to avoid being victimized by the “lottery scam”: Never send money to anyone that alleges a lottery winning and demands payment for a tax fee. When in doubt, don't give personal information out. Regardless of what they say, no legitimate organization, including Medicare, will call to ask for your bank account number or Social Security number. Keep your financial information to yourself. Do not give out credit card, checking or savings account information to anyone who calls you, as it is not difficult for someone with this data to draft money from your account. Another scam that defrauded a local resident is called the “Grandparent Scam”. In this scam a grandparent gets a call from a suspect pretending to be their grandchild and tells them that they have been either arrested or in a vehicle accident, most often in another country, and they need money wired to them quickly. Ways to avoid being victimized by the “grandparent scam”: Try to contact your grandchild or another family member to determine whether or not the call is legitimate. Never wire money based on a request made over the phone or in an e-mail, especially overseas. Wiring money is like giving cash—once you send it, you can’t get it back. Lake Havasu City residents are strongly encouraged not to send money to anyone they do not know. Report any similar activity to the police department immediately. Information on crime trends can be found at the Lake Havasu City Police Department’s website www.lhcpd.com. Citizens can also obtain additional information by visiting the Attorney General’s Website at www.azag.gov.

** Homicide Investigation - Arrest **

On Thursday afternoon, July 30, Kingman Police Detectives arrested Joshua Matthew McCoy on a felony charge of 2nd Degree Murder. McCoy's arrest came after KPD detectives obtained information Thursday afternoon that McCoy had killed a man during a fight at his home in the 3100blk. of N. Prescott St. It was told that the body of the deceased man was being kept in the garage of the home. Detectives contacted McCoy at his home and discovered the deceased body of a man in the garage of the home, wrapped in plastic. A search warrant was obtained and the home was searched. Investigators do not believe that the girlfriend had anything to do with the killing. The investigation revealed that McCoy and his girlfriend lived in the home. A week earlier they had allowed a 61y man to live in their garage and work on repairing his vehicle after he had allegedly been removed from a local homeless shelter. On July 28th a fight occurred between McCoy and the man when McCoy allegedly confronted the man about having to leave their home. During the fight McCoy grabbed a hatchet and struck the man multiple times in the head, killing him. McCoy then wrapped the man's body in plastic. McCoy had planned to bury the body under the porch in the back yard of the home. The name of the victim will be released once next of kin has been notified. The victim is believed to have been homeless or transient, with no other connection to Kingman, possibly from the Phoenix area. The investigation is on-going. McCoy, who admitted involvement in the offense, was booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Center.

WATER RESCUES ON THE LAKE DUE TO MONSOON STORMS – LAKE HAVASU          

Mohave County Sheriff’s Waterways deputies responded to three boating incidents on Lake Havasu Saturday (7/18) afternoon due to monsoons with large amounts of rain and wind.

The first incident, deputies responded at about 1:50 p.m. to a capsized boat near the north mouth of the bridge water channel.  Upon arrival it was determined that a boat operated by Christopher Aston, 45, of Corona, CA was heading out into the north basin of Lake Havasu from the bridge water channel due to a large storm approaching the area.  The boat accelerated over a large wave and then "torpedoed" back into the water causing the boat to submerge and sink. The two occupants were pulled from the water by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Officers who were in the area.  The boat sunk completely and was in the process of being salvaged by a local salvage company. The operator and his sole passenger were not injured in the incident. The waves were approximately 5 feet in the area due to the storm. 

The second incident also occurred at about 1:50 p.m., when deputies responded a boater assist.  While deputies were patrolling in the area of Thompson Bay, they observed a Personal Water Craft floating just south of the buoy line. Deputies then observed three subjects in the water. Due to a large monsoon there were waves approximately 4 feet tall in the area. Deputies approached the subjects. Deputies observed all of the subjects were males, and were wearing PFDs.   Two were adults and one was a juvenile.  Deputies observed one of the adult male holding the juvenile above his head attempting to keep the juveniles head above the large waves. Deputies observed the juvenile was panicking and crying.  Deputies determined the juvenile was physically disabled, preventing him from being able to swim.  Deputies grabbed the child and were able to pull him on board of the patrol boat as he was crying and saying "You saved my life!"   Deputies then had the adult male subjects climb aboard the patrol boat.  The subjects advised that they had rented the PWC and did not know about the incoming storm. They said that when the storm started, a large wave knocked them off of the PWC. The subjects declined medical and were transported to their family on land. The PWC was retrieved by the rental company.  

The third incident, deputies responded at about 2:26 p.m., to a report of a capsized boat on Lake Havasu near Standard Wash cove.  Upon arrival it was determined that the boat, a 1990 20-foot Cole, operated by Guy Ramsden of Los Angeles, CA had begun to leave the shore as a large monsoon storm began. The operator realized that the waves were too large, so he began to turn back around towards shore. As he did so, the boat took several large waves over the bow causing it to sink approximately 15 feet off shore. The 9 occupants on board were able to swim to shore and were not injured.  The bow of the boat was partially sticking out of the water. The boat was later salvaged by a local salvage company. Waterways deputies transported several subjects back to Lake Havasu on their patrol boat.

Lake Havasu City Police Department Announces New Sex Offender Database

The Lake Havasu City Police Department announces their startup of the most innovative and collaborative national sex offender program, OffenderWatch®.

OffenderWatch® enables Arizona law enforcement agencies to collaborate and share information with law enforcement partners statewide, to include Sheriff’s Offices, Police Departments, and others. This information sharing provides all law enforcement agencies all the information concerning sex offender movements, history and activities anywhere in the county, state or country.

OffenderWatch® is supplied and supported by Watch Systems, LLC, and is currently in use by more than 3,500 agencies to register, track and disseminate community information regarding sex offenders.  Nearly half the registered sex offenders in the United States are in OffenderWatch® databases, available for searching or importing.

The OffenderWatch® program implements an innovative electronic registration and inter-agency pre-registration and alerting system designed especially for Arizona processes. When an offender is registered with the Sheriff’s Department, information is immediately and electronically made available to the managing agency where the offender lives. This process will save agencies several weeks previously spent waiting on paper forms.  Then, Lake Havasu City police officers will contact and interview the offender, verify their address, collect additional data, arrange the community notification, and verify the address does not violate a safety buffer.  All data collected about the offender is now housed in an electronic, internet accessible form, so any law enforcement officer who needs the information about the offender, or has information to share, can access the record.  Also, all data collected on the offender follows with them as they move from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, enabling much more effective supervision by law enforcement.

Citizens may access the Lake Havasu City Police sex offender website at www.lhcazsexoffenders.com. To access the OffenderWatch® website, visit www.offenderwatch.com.  OffenderWatch® also provides the Community Notifications that go to all citizens in close proximity to offender addresses, as required by Arizona Law.  All partner agency databases are linked together, enabling seamless display of offenders from any jurisdiction in the county or region.

The OffenderWatch® database enables citizens anywhere in Lake Havasu City, plus OffenderWatch® participating neighboring jurisdictions, to see maps and get email notifications concerning offenders near any address important to them.  Citizens may enter any address of interest to them, and see a map and listing of offenders within their preferred radius of that address. Citizens may confidentially register the address to be continuously monitored by the agency, which will send them an email alerting if an offender or predator should register. In Lake Havasu City, once a sex offender relocates, is released from prison or put on probation, they have 10 days to register with the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office in Kingman. The Lake Havasu City Police Department then verifies the sex offender’s residence within the City. Offenders are photographed and a risk assessment is completed.

A risk assessment determines what level sex offender they are, based on a series of questions and point values. There are four different levels of sex offenders.  Level Zero is “registration-only” sex offenders. These are offenders who were convicted before June 30, 1996, before Megan’s Law.  Megan’s Law was named after 7-year-old Megan Kanka, who was brutally raped and murdered by a sex offender who lived in her neighborhood. Megan’s parents demanded legislative action and believed that every parent should have the right to know if a sexual predator moves into their neighborhood.

Level 1 offenders are also not community notifiable by State Statute; Level 2 and Level 3 sex offenders are community notifiable, and therefore viewable to the public via OffenderWatch® and the Lake Havasu City sex offender website. Level 3 is the highest level and these are offenders who are considered most likely to re-offend.

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.
