I AM AMAZED HOW THESE TYPE OF PEOPLE JUST KEEP GOING ON AND ON?

 

I recently found out that we have a "3 strikes" rule, signed into effect April of 2006, I have yet to hear of it being applied to anyone here......wonder why.

 

Crimes that trigger the three-strikes rule include murder, drive-by shooting, kidnapping, sexual assault, child molestation, first-degree burglary of an occupied home, arson of an occupied structure, armed robbery, terrorism and child prostitution.

 

To be subject to the three-strikes rule in Arizona, offenders must be convicted of committing, attempting or conspiring to commit three violent or aggravated felonies on separate occasions. And the law is also applicable to people who have been convicted of similar violent offenses in other states.

 

"Arizona's three-strikes law was created to go after the worst of the worst," County Attorney Andrew Thomas said Wednesday in a prepared statement. "We hope to use this new statute to lock up these violent career criminals once and for all.". 

 

 

 

BELOW ARE THE ARRESTS AND NEWS FROM THE SHERIFF AND POLICE DEPT FROM APRIL 4TH 2007.  THE INCIDENT REPORT FOR THIS PERIOD IS UNKNOWN AT THIS DATE, HOWEVER IF THEY ONLY ARREST 10% OF THE PEOPLE WHO COMMIT THE CRIMES, IMAGINE HOW MANY THEFTS AND OTHER INCIDENCES WE HAVE PER MONTH IN MOHAVE COUNTY...............

Drugs and alcohol are not factors in this investigation.

NEW SCAM COST BUSINESS OWNER $1,000.00

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.
