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

Arizona Strip- Littlefield/Beaver Dam

Friday evening, 8/29/14 at about 8:40 pm Mohave County Sheriff Deputies in the Littlefield area of the Arizona Strip saw a motorcycle with no rear plate operating on the roadway.  They started to make a traffic stop and the rider, a white male believed to be in his mid 40’s, abandoned his motorcycle and fled into the desert.

Deputies were able to find him hiding in brush and when they tried to detain him, he became combative with our Deputies. A Deputy used a Taser and an Arizona Department of Public Safety Officer, arriving to help our Deputies, also used his Taser. The male was eventually handcuffed and as he was being led back to the Deputies patrol cars, began to show signs of distress. Deputies began CPR when the suspect stopped breathing and immediately called for Paramedics.  They continued CPR until Paramedics arrived on-scene and took over emergency medical care. Ultimately the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

** KPD's new Radar Speed Trailer **

In April the AZ Governor's Office of Highway Safety (AZ GOHS) awarded the Kingman Police Department a grant through the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) for the purchase of a radar/speed trailer for speed enforcement and traffic safety. Cpl. Dan Spivey applied for the grant during the fall of 2012. The award allowed for the purchase of the trailer valued at $8,100.00. Cpl. Spivey, a certified drug recognition expert and traffic enforcement officer assigned to the motor team, is the department's DUI enforcement coordinator. Cpl. Spivey has been instrumental in the department being awarded thousands of dollars in grant funding to support enhanced DUI and speed enforcement throughout the year. The radar/speed enforcement trailer has already been used in different neighborhoods throughout the city. Requests for the trailer and speed enforcement can be made by contacting the Kingman Police Department traffic enforcement division. (Photo shows Cpl. Dan Spivey on his motorcycle and the radar/speed trailer.)

** Arrest made in Concession Stand Burglaries **

On August 27th, Kingman Police Detectives arrested six (6) Kingman area teenagers (14yoa to 18yoa) on felony charges of Burglary 3rd Degree, Criminal Damage and Theft. The arrests are in regards to two separate break-in burglaries of a concession stand in Centennial Park reported in June.  In each of the burglaries it was reported that entry was gained by damaging the rollup doors and stealing assorted food, candy and drinks.  Over $4,000.00 in damage was sustained during the break-ins.  Detectives obtained information during their investigation that led to the arrest of the six teens.  All admitted involvement in the offenses.  All will be referred and summons into court.

 ** Phone Scam Warning **

The Kingman Police Department would like to warn the public of a phone scam that has been attempted on at least two occasions.  During the phone call the caller is reported to represent himself as being from the IRS.  The scammer attempts to convince the person to wire money to satisfy any tax debt.  The caller is reported to have a foreign accent.  This is not how the IRS operates.   Most of these type of phone scams are initiated from outside the United States and usually involve the scammer trying to convince the victim to wire money to another location.  Arrest and apprehension of these criminals is very unlikely.  The best service the police can provide in these types of incidents is to educate and hopefully prevent anyone from being victimized.

On Friday (8/29) at approximately 0045 hours, Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a red Toyota pickup truck on Estrella and Shinarump.  The vehicle failed to stop for deputies.  The vehicle was towing a dual axle black flatbed trailer with no tail lamps.  The vehicle and trailer were loaded with tools, scrap metal, portable generators and other misc. items. Most of the items fell out on several roads after failing to stop.  During the investigation, deputies observed the vehicle at Chinle and Egar at which time the vehicle stopped and driver exited the vehicle, running northeast into the desert.  The suspect was not located.  The vehicle was towed from the scene.  The vehicle was not reported stolen at this time and no contact was made with the victim.

 On Friday (8/29) morning approximately 10 am, Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies responded to call on Oatman Road and Aquarius Road in Golden Valley. The victim, a 67 year-old male from Golden Valley advised deputies that four white male adults entered his property in the 3500 block of Manzanita Road. He victim reported the suspects stated they were having vehicle difficulties. The victim went outside and was wrestled to the ground by the suspects. During the incident, the suspects attempted to duct tape the victim’s hands. When the duct tape failed to work, the suspects then handcuffed the victim with handcuffs the suspects had with them. The suspects were armed with a shotgun and a revolver. The victim could not provide a further description of the suspects. The victim reported that the suspects stole his red Toyota, wallet and shotgun along with other tools and ammunition. It was reported the suspects left the scene in a lifted red Ford pickup truck and the victims vehicle, a red Toyota. The investigation is on-going.

 Anyone who may have information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office at 928-753-0753 or Mohave County Silent Witness as 928-753-1234.

**Labor Day Weekend DUI Taskforce***

The Kingman Police Department will be conducting joint operations with other area law enforcement agencies as part of the Western Arizona DUI Taskforce this Labor Day Holiday Weekend. Officers and deputies will be seeking to apprehend those who choose to drive while impaired. The Western Arizona DUI Taskforce will include agencies from Mohave, La Paz, and Yuma Counties which are committed to the safe passage of motorists traveling this busy holiday weekend.

Our DUI enforcement is made possible by funding provided through the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and NHSTA, the National Highway Safety Transportation Administration. Every year scores of preventable injuries and deaths take place on our roads and highways as a result of poor choices made by those to choose to drive after consuming alcohol as part of the holiday celebrations.

If you observe a suspected impaired driver immediately call your local law enforcement agency, provide a good description, direction of travel, if possible a license plate and description of the driver to assist us in removing the subject from the road. Don’t confront the individual, simply be a good witness and keep a safe distance. We all have to work together to prevent such tragedies from being repeated.

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.
