Burglary suspect's trial postponed

The trial of a Kingman man charged with a number of Kingman storage-shed burglaries was postponed again Monday until June.

Robert C.

Robledo is charged with 42 counts of third-degree burglary, one count of first-degree burglary, four counts of theft, two counts of trafficking in stolen property and one count of aggravated assault in storage unit burglaries in late 2001.

Mohave County Superior Court Judge Steven Conn rescheduled the trial, already delayed three previous times, until June 24.

Robledo, who is representing himself, filed a number of motions during Monday's hearing.

A hearing on those motions was scheduled just days before the original May 20 trial date, prompting another postponement.

Robledo's original attorney, Mike Hruby of Flagstaff, recently was assigned as an advisory counsel.

Robledo's wife and co-defendant, Julie Robledo, pleaded guilty in March 2002 to two counts of third-degree burglary.

She was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for her role in the burglaries.

The aggravated assault charge Robledo faces stems from an assault of his wife.

The Robledos were arrested in January 2002 and charged with breaking into 29 storage sheds between September 2001 and January 2002.

Items stolen in all the burglaries amounted to about $20,000.

Some of the items were recovered at the Robledos' residence, in their own storage unit and in their vehicles, according to police records.
