KINGMAN - A man and woman who were arrested on relatively minor charges Saturday landed in far more serious trouble Tuesday when Kingman police officers arrested one of them at the Mohave County jail on felony charges of armed robbery, aggravated assault and weapons misconduct.

Shawn W. Tennison, 36, of Kingman was wanted for his alleged role in an attempted armed robbery that occurred April 28 at an apartment in the 3000 block of Hualapai Mountain Road, according to Kingman Police Capt. Rusty Cooper.

The victims reportedly told police that Tennison and Marie Ann Noelani Garcia, 19, also of Kingman, entered the home with a handgun and demanded money and drugs.

A shot was fired and the bullet lodged in a wall, said Cooper.

After a brief struggle, Tennison and Garcia fled.

On Tuesday, Tennison was arrested in the lobby of the Mohave County jail while trying to bail out Garcia, who had been arrested three days earlier on drug charges.

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies first arrested the pair on Saturday.

Tennison was charged with misdemeanor driving on a suspended license. Garcia was arrested on felony charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

The woman has not been arrested in connection with the alleged armed robbery. Cooper said she will face charges similar to Tennison's.

@ old Kingman Resident

I'm not especially alarmed, I live under the KPD's protection so I feel much safer than if I were in MCS jurisdiction.

Digital face recognition should make things easy for cops in the future. This guy has gone into my collection of zombies.

We have a real problem in this town with non-communication between the law enforcement agencies.

Mohave County sheriff arrests a man wanted by Kingman city police for attempted armed robbery but lets him go. How come the outstanding warrant didn't pull up on his offender search?

Anybody else alarmed about this?

I honestly think the "eyebrow" ink had nothing at all to do with this man being looked at further.

Humm 19 yr old it figures.

I love Kingman. Commit a crime with a weapon less then two months ago then waltz right into the cop shop like you own it. HAHAHA.

Wow... The KDM sure throws around the word "victim". How many law abiding citizens have been robbed for drugs? Sounds like a case of criminal verses criminal. The real victim was the apartment wall... and luckily it wasn't an innocent bystander.

Mistaken Identity, Dude!!
It was some other mean looking hombre with tats all over his face. He's certainly an ardent 'A's fan and no more!
Oh man, crack me up.
Pardon the pun.

Too bad MORE criminals don't do this, it would make the job a lot easier on the Police there in Kingman. I use to live there, crime is a LOT WORSE AND MORE OFTEN now than it was 8 years ago it seems. I read the Daily Miner online and noticed this and it makes me happy to know I DON'T live there now....

Typical Mohave County.

They don't even have to go looking for criminals. The criminals come to the jail to bail each other out.
