KINGMAN - Kingman Police Department has received several reports of graffiti in the Graystone Drive, Kmart and Bashas' area over the weekend. At least 20 block walls and the back walls of Kmart and Bashas' were spray painted with "NFLx3." KPD believes the initials are a reference to the gang's name, not the football league. Anyone with information can contact KPD at 753-2191.

She allegedly told deputies that the resident had given her the necklace and she had pawned it. When deputies attempted to take Lowe into custody, she allegedly pulled away and swung at them.
