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

 TELEPHONE SCAMS – MOHAVE COUNTY  

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public of an ongoing telephone scam.  Residents of Lake Havasu City, Chloride, Kingman and Fort Mohave have recently reported phone calls from subjects speaking broken English, possibly Spanish and in some cases with a Middle Eastern accent.  The callers have stated that they are calling from an electrical company and they are going to shut your power off for the unpaid (outstanding) bill unless they receive payment immediately over the phone.  In some instances, the caller has threatened to send someone out to your residence to turn the power off.  Unisource has been contacted and they have confirmed this is fraud and they have had similar reports in Bullhead City. 

 Another incident is another ongoing telephone scam.  A Golden Valley resident reported receiving a telephone call about his grandson needing money as he is in Mexico City.  The GV resident hung the phone up on the caller.

UPDATE
Drug Sales Arrest


Bullhead City (Ariz.) – October 16, 2014 – Bullhead City Police have additional information regarding yesterday’s drug sales arrests at the home of Tania Grogan and Ralph Folster. Detectives also arrested Folster’s girlfriend, mother and neighbor.

     During the two-hour standoff with Ralph Folster, he called his girlfriend, 21-year-old Niki Elizabeth Fox, and asked her to create a diversion in an attempt for him to escape. Fox called 9-1-1 and falsely reported that an officer had been shot at a local gas station. In another attempt for patrol units to leave Folster’s location, a call was made approximately 15 minutes later by a male subject who reported an officer was down at a local motel. Both reports were unfounded.

     Fox was arrested on October 16th at around 1:30 a.m. at her residence in the 300 block of Church Street. She struggled with police and was arrested for hindering prosecution, resisting arrest and false reporting to law enforcement.

     Bullhead City Police also arrested Folster’s mother, 59-year-old Freddie Lynn Nicholson, for possession of drug paraphernalia and transportation of dangerous drugs. During the homicide search warrant conducted on September 4th, police located a methamphetamine pipe in Nicholson’s bedroom. During the course of the narcotics investigation, detectives learned that Nicholson assisted Tania Grogan with her drug sales inside the residence.
     Police also arrested their neighbor, 27-year-old Jaime Medrano. During the standoff, Folster had climbed up in the attic and gained access into the neighboring duplex. Medrano was arrested for hindering prosecution after police learned that he had harbored Folster in his residence during the course of the standoff for about two hours.
     No one else was at the residence at the time of the search warrant, Wednesday. Police located some drug paraphernalia items in the home. Grogan and Folster’s drug sales charges stem from the information gathered from the month long narcotic investigation.

Arizona Department Of Public Safety (DPS) Arrests Doctor Impersonator

DPS detectives are hoping to hear from unwitting victims of Dr. Anthony Pena, a man arrested last week on charges of criminal impersonation and providing false information to an officer. The man’s real name is Joshua Abeyta.
The incident began after Abeyta, identifying himself as a physician, asked a Highway Patrol officer for directions to a hospital in Coolidge. There is no hospital in the Coolidge so the officer immediately became suspicious of Abeyta who was dressed in hospital scrubs, wore a stethoscope around his neck and had the name of Dr. Anthony Pena embroidered on his clothes.
Abeyta was driving a beat-up 2000 Ford Expedition that was registered to his girlfriend in Tucson. A search of the vehicle turned up ziplock baggies containing various pills and a narcotic prescription to another individual. There was also a bag containing medical equipment.
Abeyta told the officer he did orthopedic surgery at the Scottsdale Hospital and worked at the VA Hospital in Tucson. Abeyta had a misdemeanor warrant for his arrest and his drivers license had been suspended. A check with the VA hospital in Tucson found that Abeyta had been caught in a secure area and had tried to pass himself off as an orthopedic surgeon. Hospital security has been trying to locate Abeyta.
His girlfriend believed Abeyta was a physician saying that her boyfriend had given friends pain medication when they were ill. A search of her apartment turned up documents indicating Abeyta was currently trying to purchase two residences and one vehicle. Detectives found another set of hospital scrubs at his apartment. The suspect did admit that he was formerly employed at a copper mine.

If you have come into contact with “Dr. Anthony Pena,” please call DPS at (602) 223-2212

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.
