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...............

Burro Activity

 

The Bullhead City Police Department cautions drivers to watch out for burros and other wildlife.

     Recently, the 9-1-1 Dispatch Center has received calls of high burro activity near the Bullhead Parkway and Laughlin Ranch areas, as well as Highway 68. There have been a number of accidents in Bullhead City and the Greater Mohave County where burros were struck and killed by vehicles. Burros are curious animals and occasionally cross the road. They are most likely to be encountered at night or in the early morning hours when it is dark out, which makes it difficult for drivers to see them. According to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), burros have always lived in the desert region near the Parkway, which is home of the BLM’s Black Mountain Herd Management Area.

     Bullhead City has installed signage to remind motorists of the burros. Please be alert and aware of all desert animals.

     Residents are also urged to not feed the burros or other wildlife, as it draws wild animals to roadways and causes them to stay in these high traffic areas, putting them at risk.

UPDATE - Dog Bite

Three Arrested for False Information

 

Bullhead City (Ariz.) – February 20, 2014 – Bullhead City Police arrested three people, including the victim’s parents, for making a false report about a dog bite involving a young girl.

     Yesterday, the victim’s parents reported that the girl, age five, and her mother were walking in the 2200 block of Riverview Way when a dog bit the child on her thigh and tried to drag her. When the girl’s father and uncle fought the dog off, the dog bit the girl on her face and ran away down the street.

     When Animal Control officers went to Western Arizona Regional Medical Center (WARMC) where the girl was being treated to gather more information, the mother and father gave very specific details about the dog’s description and their stories collaborated.  

     Animal Control and Police officers spent several hours patrolling the area in search of the dog both yesterday and today. Animal Control officers spoke to numerous neighbors who advised they did not see any dogs at large and nobody witnessed the incident. One neighbor said they came outside when they heard a girl screaming, but it sounded as though it was coming from inside a nearby residence.

     Also, while at WARMC, Animal Control officers overheard the girl crying and say she never wanted to go to her “uncle’s” place again. After further investigation, Animal Control officers learned that the “uncle” is a family friend who lives in the 2200 block of Riverview Way.
     On Thursday afternoon, Animal Control officers spoke to a female resident at this location, who initially lied about the details of the event. Animal Control officers soon discovered that the girl was bitten by their family friends’ pet dog while inside the house. The girl’s mother; Michelle Nichole Phillips, 29, father; Stephen Shane Phillips, 27, and friend/resident; Deborah Lorraine Holmes, 60, decided to lie and report a bite involving a stray dog because they were afraid of being cited. The “uncle” never made any statements to Animal Control or police.

     The dog that bit the girl within the home is a Boxer/Pitbull mix that just had puppies. The dog is licensed and has current rabies vaccinations. The dog owner is Holmes’ son.

     Stephen Phillips, Michelle Phillips and Deborah Holmes were cited for false reporting.

INCIDENT: Sales of Marijuana Investigation/Search Warrants Served

 

LOCATION(S): Multiple dispensaries and residences in Needles, Ca., Lake Havasu City, Az. and Bullhead, Az.                  

 

SUMMARY:

 

The Sheriff’s Marijuana Enforcement Team, Needles Station deputies and the Mojave Area General Narcotics Enforcement Teams (MAGNET) in Bullhead and Lake Havasu City conducted a multi-agency investigation over the past several weeks. Various involved subjects, marijuana dispensaries and private homes were identified, resulting in the service of 13 search warrants. 

 In 1996 California voters passed the Compassionate Use Act which allows for the personal use of marijuana for certain medical illnesses.  Investigators determined during their investigation that Arizona residents were purchasing marijuana from California dispensaries.  The customers were providing the owner/operator of the dispensary with a California Identification Card with a California address when they in fact, live in Arizona.  In addition to selling marijuana to Arizona residents, investigators determined many of the dispensary owners and operators are also full-time residents of Arizona.  California medical marijuana laws specifically pertain to California residents only.  The individuals identified through this investigation are circumventing California law by making false claims of residency. The Sheriff’s Department frequently investigates marijuana dispensaries that are not in compliance with state laws.

      On January 30th and 31st, 2014, the Sheriff’s Narcotics Division Marijuana Team conducted an investigation related to the illegal sales of marijuana at multiple dispensaries and residences in the City of Needles. 

On Thursday, January 30th, Detectives prepared and served a total of eight search warrants at three dispensaries and four residences in Needles, and one residence in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.  Detectives seized 95 lbs. of processed marijuana, over 2,500 grams of Butane Honey Oil Wax (BHO Wax), edible marijuana products, U.S. currency and several firearms. 

      On Friday, January 31st, five search warrants were served at dispensaries and residences in Needles, Ca. and Bullhead, Arizona.  Detectives seized 350 lbs. of processed marijuana and a large quantity of edible marijuana products.

      Reports will be forwarded to the District Attorney for review of filing criminal charges.  One suspect is currently being sought for the illegal possession of the firearms seized.

The investigation is continuing and anyone with information should contact the Sheriff’s Narcotics Division at (909)890-4840.  Callers wishing to remain anonymous are urged to call the We-tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME (27463) or you may leave information on the We-Tip Hotline at www.wetip.com.

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.
