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

     Many victims left their car doors unlocked and valuables in plain view.

 

Here are some vehicle burglary prevention tips:

 

·         Always lock your doors and roll up your windows.

·         Do not leave valuables in your car. (especially purses, wallets and firearms).

·         If you have a pull out stereo or detachable faceplate stereo, take it with you.

·         Do not leave money in your ashtray or in plain view.

·         Do not leave your garage door remote inside your vehicle if it’s parked in your driveway. If it is stolen, change the remote frequency.

·         Never attached a tag with your name and address on your key ring. If the keys are lost or stolen, the tag will lead the thief directly to your car or home.

·         Park in well lit areas.

ARMED ROBBERY – DESERT SPRINGS (AZ STRIP)

Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating an armed robbery where a male subject was shot in the hip early

Wednesday (7/16) afternoon in the Desert Springs area.

At about 12:30 p.m., deputies responded to a suspicious call in the Desert Springs area.

Dispatch advised that a reporting party said that a female and male subject just left in a white truck and the male

subject had been shot. An ATL (Attempt to Locate) was issued to Arizona Department of Public Safety and Utah

Highway Patrol for the white pick-up truck. A short time later, as the vehicle entered Utah, a Highway Patrol Officer

conducted a traffic stop on the truck. Deputies responded to their location, south of Bloomington. The injured male

subject identified as Codi Jayne Norton, 21, of St. George, suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his hip.

Medical responded and transported Norton to Dixie Regional Medical Center.

Investigations determined that Norton and his girlfriend hitched a ride from Nevada to St. George, Utah. While

enroute, the driver of the Dodge Charger and the couple decided to stop in Desert Springs. The couple got out of the

vehicle when they were approached by an unknown male subject in a white passenger car. The male subject

confronted the couple with a black handgun and demanded their money. The couple handed over approximately

$200. Before leaving, the male subject fired at the couple and left the scene in his white passenger car. The male

suspect is white, approximately 30 years old, long blond hair, short with a skinny built and a sunken face. The driver

of the Dodge Charger left the scene when shots were fired.

After the shooting, the couple was stranded in the area. A female subject let them borrow her phone and they

contacted a friend who responded and picked them up in a white pick-up truck. Apparently, Norton did not want law

enforcement called because he has an outstanding warrant.

Norton was arrested and booked into the Washington County Jail by Utah Highway Patrol after he was treated and

released from DRMC. Norton’s girlfriend was also transported to DRMC at the time Norton was transported. She

was treated for an unrelated injury.

This incident remains under investigation.

Friday, June 13, 2014

A 22-year-old man, dressed in black from head-to-toe, including a leather jacket, mechanic’s work gloves and a bandana covering his face and carrying two handguns on his person, was arrested Monday evening after police chased him by car and on foot in the Mesquite Avenue and Capri Boulevard area.

Brett Bandini, of Havasu, was charged with resisting arrest, possessing drug paraphernalia and driving with an expired license. He was booked Monday night at 6:30 p.m. and held on a $10,000 bond.

Two Havasu police officers were dispatched to the parking lot behind Havasu Bedding on Mesquite Avenue on Monday shortly before 6 p.m. in response to a suspicious male subject. Witnesses had called dispatch and reported that a man dressed in black was at the furniture store and looked like he might be robbing it or coming to rob the Mudshark Pizza, according to the police report.

“We should commend those citizens for letting us know right away,” Sgt. Troy Stirling said Thursday. “Seeing someone dressed like that this time of year is very odd and suspicious.”

When the police arrived, they saw Bandini in a gold Buick Oldsmobile, turning down an alley in the area, where he parked in an empty dirt lot and exited his car. The two officers approached his vehicle, drew their guns and commanded Bandini to get on the ground. Police said he went to his knees but refused to go all the way to the ground before getting up and running westbound on Mesquite Avenue.

One of the officers caught Bandini and pulled him to the ground. As Bandini tried to pull his hands free, the officers delivered multiple fist strikes to his back before successfully handcuffing him. Bandini was carrying a .45 caliber Smith and Wesson revolver in his right pocket and a .22 caliber Jennings semi-automatic pistol in his left pocket. He was also carrying a package of zip-ties and a can of pepper spray in his jacket.

When the police searched his car, they found two glass bongs and four glass pipes that tested positive for marijuana residue. They also found pingpong balls wrapped in foil that appeared to be homemade smoke bombs.

Bandini told the police that he dressed in all black and a leather jacket in 115-degree weather because he was going to the desert to ride his dirt bike. He also told the police that he was trying to leave his car in the area to put it up for sale and that he likes to use the smoke bombs in the desert when riding his bike.

Stirling said Bandini had previously been in contact with police for traffic stops and an outstanding warrant. But he said this incident was especially scary and that it was a good thing witnesses alerted the police before something bad happened.

Citizens Should Be Aware of Most Recent Tax Scam

 

The Lake Havasu City Police Department is warning the public about a tax scam.

 

In March of 2014 the Treasury Inspector General for Taxpayer Administration issued a warning to taxpayers to beware of phone calls from individuals claiming to represent the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in an effort to defraud them.

 

The scam is sophisticated and targeting taxpayers.  Callers claiming to be from the IRS tell intended victims that they owe taxes and must pay using a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer.  The scammers are very aggressive and threaten those who refuse to pay with arrest, deportation or loss of a business or driver’s license.

 

According to the Treasury Inspector General for Taxpayer Administration press release, the IRS usually first contacts people by mail, not by phone, about unpaid taxes.  The public can learn more about this tax scam on the IRS website at www.irs.gov.

 

Lake Havasu City residents are strongly encouraged not to send money to anyone they do not know unless YOU are the one initiating the contact.  Please be vigilant when providing and protecting your personal information.

 

Additional information on crime trends can be found at the Lake Havasu City Police Department’s websitewww.lhcpd.com

"Buckle Up Arizona...No Excuses!" seatbelt enforcement campaign.

Starting now through June 5th the Kingman Police Department will be participating in the "Click It or Ticket" seatbelt enforcement campaign.  Funding for KPD's participation in this campaign is provided for by a grant awarded by the Governors Office of Highway Safety.

 “Buckle Up Arizona!”

Click it or Ticket Enforcement Campaign Begins May 23

PHOENIX - The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (“GOHS”) is proud to announce the beginning of the “Buckle Up Arizona…No Excuses!” seatbelt enforcement campaign from May 23rd through June 5th 2011. The goal of this campaign, part of the national “CLICK IT OR TICKET” campaign, is to increase seatbelt usage throughout Arizona. 

“Even though Arizona is a secondary law state for seatbelt usage, law enforcement officers will be taking a zero tolerance approach on drivers who are in violation of state law,” said Alberto Gutier, Director of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. 

In 2009, seat belts saved an estimated over 13,00 lives in the U.S. When used properly, seat belts can reduce the risk of fatal injury to front-seat passengers by 45 percent and can reduce the risk of moderate-to-critical injury by 50 percent. 

The events and enforcement during these two weeks will help prevent needless tragedies on our streets and highways,” said Alberto Gutier. He will be in attendance at several public awareness events during the course of the campaign.

BUCKLE UP ARIZONA… NO EXCUSES!

On May 13, 2014, at approximately 5:10 a.m., officers from the Lake Havasu City Police Department were dispatched to the Jamaica Elementary School, located at 3437 Jamaica Boulevard South, for a report of a burglary. A school employee arrived at the school and found that someone had ransacked several areas of the school causing damage. As officers conducted their investigation it was determined that the suspect had allegedly entered the school through an unsecured door and began to search for money and other small electronic items. In the process the suspect did damage as he pried open filing cabinets, a cash box, and pulled surveillance cameras and wires out from the ceiling. It did not appear that any property had been removed from the school by the suspect. According to surveillance video the suspect entered the school property at around 4:30 a.m. and was apparently scared off when a school employee arrived. The employee observed a male subject jump over the school fence and run to a nearby home. Officers arrived in the area and made contact with a homeowner on Plebe Lane. The homeowner reported that he had just taken his son to work at around 4:30 a.m. The homeowner allowed the officers to search the residence and they located Daniel Kennedy, 23-years of age, hiding in the son's bedroom under some clothes. It was learned that Kennedy was the homeowner’s son’s friend, and stayed at the residence earlier that night but left just prior to his friend being taken to work by the homeowner. Clothing similar to that seen in the surveillance video was located in the bedroom and Kennedy was taken into custody. There was no information to suggest that the homeowner or his son were involved in the burglary. Kennedy was booked into the Lake Havasu City Jail on charges of burglary third degree, criminal damage, and a failure to comply warrant and is pending his initial appearance.

SCAMS – MOHAVE COUNTY

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public of the following scams:

The reporting party said that they placed an ad on craigslist to sell their vehicle. About 2 weeks later, the reporting

party received a text message from a buyer “an unknown person” wanting to purchase their vehicle. The buyer texted

him to expect a check in the mail and then a tow company will pick up the vehicle. The buyer conveyed that the check

with be the asking price of $1,300 and include money to pay the tow company when they arrive. The reporting party

said within a few days they received a $3,200 check inside a priority mail envelope from a Robert Glatzer at Medina

Electric Coop Inc. in Hondo Texas. The reporting party said they texted the phone number back and told the buyer

that the check was for too much. The buyer texted back and told him it was to cover the towing and an extra $50 for

him, then to western union the rest back to the buyer when the check cleared. The reporting party deposited the

check into his checking account. The buyer then began texting and asking when he was sending the balance to him

via western union. The reporting party texted that he was informed by his bank that it would take a week before the

check cleared. Later, the reporting party learned from his bank that the check was no good and he was charged a

$12 bounced check fee. Deputies contacted a representative at Medina Electric Coop Inc. in Hondo Texas. The

representative advised that they have received several phone calls and email complaints from several people

regarding receiving bad checks with their companies return address. The representative further advised that they

have received numerous priority mail envelopes as return to sender. The representative said that they don’t have a

billing account for priority mail. Deputies received a copy of the bounced check which had an account name of

Modern Gallery in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Deputies contacted the name holder on that account and he said his

account has been closed because he has had dozens of checks attempt to be cashed through his account.

Investigations further determined that this scam originated out of the United States.

2. The second scam..

is where the victim said that she received a call from a Lieutenant Tommy Daniels with the Wants

and Warrants Division and he advised her that she has two warrants for her arrest for failure to show up for jury duty.

The Lieutenant provided her with the warrant numbers. The Lieutenant said she could pay the fines using a “Green

Dot Money Pak” card. The Lieutenant advised that the fines were $500 for each warrant. The victim said that she

purchased two Green Dot Money Pak cards for $500 each plus a service fee at the store. The victim further said that

she returned home and called the Lieutenant back at (928) 202-6731. The victim advised that she scratched off the

back of the cards and provided the Lieutenant with the access code to each card. The Lieutenant said that she should

save the cards as proof of payment and that she needed to go to the court on Spring Street in Kingman on 5/15/2014

and see Judge Julie Roth and the warrants would be dismissed. Investigations determined the phone number (928-

202-6731) is a routing number and the person involved is not located in the United States. A check via dispatch

revealed that the victim did not have any warrants for her arrest.

The last two scams are ongoing re-occurring scams:

A Kingman resident reported receiving a telephone call about their relative being in jail and needing money. The

Kingman resident called their relative and their relative was home. Furthermore, their relative hasn’t traveled outside

of the area foany, many years.

Often Mohave County residents are notified of winning some type of lottery, inheritance and even the Publisher’s

Clearing House. In most cases, these scammers are using the same method by requesting you to send them money

in order to receive your winnings. Do not send money. At times, these scammers will pressure and even threaten the

person into sending them money.

These incidents are believed to be scams and the Sheriff’s Office would like to caution residents. If you suspect fraud,

contact your local law enforcement office.

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.
