Kingman Police arrested two men early last week following a series of car burglaries in the Fripps Ranch subdivision.

Capt. Rusty Cooper said police took about 15 reports of car burglaries in the area last weekend. On Monday, detectives patrolling the area spotted a Jeep that matched the description of one possibly involved in the burglaries.

Police stopped the driver of the Jeep, identified as Dustin Lee Pruitt, 26, and found some of the stolen property in the vehicle. That led to a search warrant being served at a home in the Walnut Creek subdivision in Golden Valley where more stolen property was found, according to Cooper.

Robert H. Osterhout, 21, was arrested at the Walnut Creek home. Cooper said both men admitted to their involvement in the car burglaries.

They were booked into the Mohave County Jail on multiple charges of vehicle burglary and possession of stolen property.

It is about time. Also, let me add there are more of them. Many mornings these thieves have left my car on E. Same for my sisters vehicles. I say throw the book at the little thieves and cut their hands off. Really do that.
